Tired of Quicken...

There's also another one called MoneyDance which is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. There's also apps available for Android and iPhone which will sync your finacial data from your computer through a DropBox account. You can try it out for free with a limit of 100 transactions at

. It's $49.95 for the full version and the software key works on any computer platform, so you can have MoneyDance on your Windows and Linux box at the same time if you like.

If and when you do try Moneydance make sure you do not uninstall Quicken. You should run both at the same time because when you import from Quicken y ou will most likely have to make some adjustments.
There will a learning curve. Moneydance is not as robust as Quicken. No Per sonal software is. (My opinion). I was a user.
They did have a problem with downloading Quotes. I do not know if that has been fixed.
Here is a link to the Moneydance Forum.

You will have to manually pick which category is tax related. Note that if you have a problem with downloading and need to your Financial Institution they do not recognize Moneydance so you have to tell them you are using Quicken.
Have not tried the newest version yet. Last known user guide

FWIW, I passed Moneyspire along to relative of mine last week, and he did the export to a QDF and a new Moneyspire import to the 30 day (I believe it was) free trial version he had downloaded. Told me:
1) So many errors it would take a lot of energy to fix things 2) "I also don't think the program is as robust as Quicken"
He told me to get it and play with I. I replied as a Quicken user since at least the DOS days in 1989 (30 years of Quicken use now) I had absolutely no interest in trying something else.

Before someone jumps on my case, the export was to a QIF, not QDF. Typo.
