Forum Question: Advice on Money Manager software for Mac

I could really use some advice on buying a good quality money manager for Mac. I’m based in India, with Indian banking, so it’s a consideration – some US money managers may only interface with American banks.
I’m looking for one complete package to help me track cheques, credit card payments, bills, insurance etc. Also, Quicken, a highly rated manager, says you tie it up with your bank account directly. Is that safe? To have your software accessing the bank site directly?

    I don’t have any specific advice. But it seems to me, as a software engineer, that doing it with an online service is the way to go. It isn’t the sort of thing where a local application makes sense. And I know there are many online services now that are platform independent.

      For some reason chosing a Money Manager is always difficult, at least for me. It depends what you want to do, I guess. I am using iCompta at the moment. I chose this one as I wanted to do the books for multiple persons. I also demand export-options so that I am not locked into the app. And I want import-options so I can import from multiple and different bank-accounts.

      I have not yet found an online-service that does similar things and they are mostly to expensive, especially if you look for accounting options.

    I highly recommend Moneywell. It handles all you specified and more. Whether it connects directly to your bank – that’s pot luck outside the US. Version 2.0 is also not far away which is a plus.
