Money management software review: Moneydance

In the last two weeks we looked at the two heavy hitters of the personal finance software world, Microsoft Money and Quicken. This week we look at a lesser known but equally attractive option, Moneydance. If you followed our last two articles you will have seen that while Microsoft Money and Quicken are powerful applications, the UK versions of both haven't been updated in a few years. So we decided to dig a little deeper to see if we could come up with an alternative.

Thankfully, our search uncovered a very useful little piece of software called MoneyDance. This was open source and free a few years back, but you now have to pay $29.99 (about £15) to download it, which isn't bad at all. You can download a limited free trial to see if you like it.

Is this just an ad?

Anyone'd be mad to pay £15 for this when GnuCash is free and better.

I just LOVE this line: "This was open source and free a few years back, but you now have to pay $29.99 (about £15) to download it, which isn't bad at all."

 (1) it is no longer open source: this IS bad

 (2) it went from free to £15: this is bad TOO

 Who writes Orwellian doublespeak rubbish like that other than advertising copywriters?

No it is not an ad!

Hi

I saw your comment that you think our review of MoneyDance is just an ad.

I am the editor of MoneyHighstreet.com and I can assure you that we receive no benefits whatsoever from the sale of MoneyDance software, so I can say categorically that it is not ad advert!
