I am looking for personal finance management software which is Apple OS X compatible. I don't have to track stocks and like right now. I would like an alternative to quicken.

A couple of non-quicken Mac OS X software I've tried:
For a while I used iBank (http://www.iggsoftware.com/ibank/index.php) . It looks nice (and it is) but it was painfully slow on my older iMac.
Now I've been using Moneydance (http://www.moneydance.com/) and lke it really. It is a java program so it isn't Mac OS X native, but it still seems to work great for me. With the added bonus that it is cross-platform so I can also copy my datafile to a usb key, carry it to work, and edit things with my Windows box.

Try GBI Home Finance Manager (http://www.globihome.com/products.php?page=products). It's online and it's free. Kicked up quite a storm on personal finance blogs a few weeks ago.

Well, I use Quicken 2004...does a great job. In fact, I have used Quicken for many years...never had a problem with it.
Just my food for thought.

Has anyone heard of a way to sync a personal finance app (like money, quicken, or any other) with outlook? I'd like to avoid having to open the app to check what bills need to be paid, etc - i'd like those tasks to go straight into outlook for me so i only have one 'dashbooard' to keep track of.
looking forward to your ideas...
