Moneydance is a complete personal financial management application that protects your privacy while not skimping on features. It supports online banking and bill payment, investment management, budget tracking, scheduled transactions, check printing, detailed graphs and reports, and much more.
Moneydance encrypts your data file on your computer and uses strong end-to-end encryption for syncing. Moneydance has no advertising, and we do not collect any analytics or other data.
∞ SUMMARY SCREEN
The summary screen is an overview of your entire financial picture. Account balances, a calendar of scheduled transactions and reminders, investment account status, exchange rates, and stock quotes, all at a glance.
∞ ONLINE BANKING
Moneydance can download transactions and send payments through thousands of financial institutions. It learns how to categorize and clean up downloaded transactions. Send online payments, for banks that support them, directly from scheduled transaction notifications. Please note that some banks charge a monthly fee for their services.
∞ ACCOUNT REGISTERS
The account register is used to add, edit, and delete transactions in an account. Balance calculations and transaction sorting are done automatically. Payee auto-completion makes it ridiculously easy to enter and categorize your transactions, while the quick-search field helps find those needles in the haystack.
Follow your investments and bring your portfolio into focus with support for stocks, bonds, CDs, mutual funds, and more. View the total value of your investment accounts or the performance of individual stocks and mutual funds over time. Stock splits and cost basis computations are a snap, and current prices are automatically.
Easily schedule future or recurring transactions so you'll never miss a payment.
Generate visual reports of your income, expenses, budgets, and investments. Flexible parameters let you customize your reports by period, tags, categories, accounts, and more. Mouse over regions of graphs or double-click on report cells to reveal details. Easily save graphs and reports to images or html files, or memorize their settings for quick access.
Set spending and income targets for categories per month, week or any other interval. View your up-to-the-minute budget status right in the toolbar, on the summary screen or in graphs and reports. Use the highly acclaimed "envelope method" to specify expenses for each period and your status is shown with over-budget items highlighted.
Enable syncing to share your data across computers or mobile devices. Keep up-to-date with partners or accountants over end-to-end encrypted channels for the ultimate security.
∞ NATURAL LANGUAGE TRANSACTION ENTRY
Type a transaction description into the search field to have Moneydance cleverly fill in the details. For example, typing "1.23 sta" will suggest a transaction at Starbucks with the "Coffee" category and the last account you used at Starbucks.
Attach images, PDFs, and other files to transactions by dragging them into the register. Attachments are stored fully encrypted, but clicking its icon will decrypt and open it appropriate application.
Use the (free) Moneydance mobile app while on the go to record or edit transactions and view balances. Changes are synced instantly and securely with end-to-end encryption across all of your devices.
Welcome to the single most significant update to Moneydance in our twenty-three-year history! Rather than dump a giant list of changes in your lap, let's start with our three tentpole features for Moneydance 2022:
Moneydance+. Now with a single click, you can seamlessly download all of your transactions from tens of thousands of banks and credit card accounts. It even works with PayPal and Wise.com! Moneydance+ accesses an order of magnitude more banks than Moneydance has ever supported, and we're excited to roll it out initially for US and Canadian bank, credit card, and investment accounts, with the EU and UK soon to follow.
iCloud Drive Syncing. For years, we've heard that many Apple customers would prefer to drop Dropbox and sync using the iCloud Drive that was built-in to their Macs. With this update, Moneydance for Mac can finally do precisely that. We’ll be releasing updates to the iPhone and iPad apps shortly. Dropbox syncing will still be available, but there will be an even more seamless sync setup experience on Apple devices.
Finally, we've noticed how many customers loved Kevin Stembridge's Money Foresight extension, which helps you budget and predict balances based on transaction reminders. It's a great way to plan recurringly scheduled expenses and income. With Kevin's help, we've incorporated the feature into the Foresight tools within Moneydance. Check it out for a beautiful new way to plan your financial life!
We know you’re going to love the new features. As usual, you can purchase Moneydance with a one-off payment, and it’s yours to keep, forever, with no sunsetting of features.

Ratings and Reviews
Great Financial Management App
Overall this app is outstanding, but I give 4 stars, not 5, because I think there is still much room for improvement. I love how customizable it is but I wish it would more seamlessly download online account data. It does well enough to make it quite useful, but I was hoping for something as polished as the free Personal Capital app, which is outstanding in its own right but Moneydance still outperforms Personal Capital by enabling unlimited categories, envelope budgeting, etc. I am just mildly annoyed that I need to manually update my TSP account and the Zillow market value for my home and my credit card transactions are not automatically downloaded. I also wish the mobile companion app had more features, but it functions pretty well enabling categorization of recent transactions on the move. Bottom line is Moneydance is my preferred financial management program, but a Moneydance and Personal Capital marriage would produce the perfect financial management offspring that would far outshine them both.
Works for me
I had been using Quicken but was frustrated when it worked so poorly on Mac. So I switched to Moneydance. It does everything I need - which is to track income and expenditures. Creating all the categories is time consuming. Sometimes less intutive than I would like, but it works great. And there is tech support, even long after I purchased it. I do not use it to track investments - that’s too complicated for me. But it keeps banking and as many credit cards as you want. It lists assets and liabilities (inc. mortgage). And the tools for income and expenses are helpful at tax time. I finally had to ask for tech support to be able to increase the font size for viewing each register. Hint - it’s in Preferences! - I never would have found it. I like it and will continue using it. I recommend it.
Tried to move over from Jumsoft Money, whose version 5 is not for me. I’ve got multiple bank and credit card accounts with large archival CSV files ready to go. But Moneydance has mystifying issues with CSV import of transaction categories. Not every financial institution uses QIF, and moving from other programs like Jumsoft Money often requires CSV. Despite my every effort, the Category field on my large CSV files is ignored and a default category is swapped in. Their online help forums keep mentioning installing extensions from third parties and so forth to improve this issue, but the Mac App Store version doesn’t have freewheeling Extension installation capabilities. This is dumb. The Category field should simply populate the working category list in the program, and show the field correctly filled-in for imported transactions. End of story. Simple stuff. No hacks or gymnastics. I welcome feedback from the developer, because I’m exhausted reading forum help posts from their users. That isn’t “help”, though it’s the only Help link accessible from the software. Just fix it.
Developer Response ,
Hi there, when importing data from other applications QIF is by far the best option. Jumsoft Money 4.7, and all finance apps that I know of, export to QIF. I recommend exporting from Money into a QIF file, then import that into Moneydance. Please make sure to select the "From Another Application" option when importing, otherwise Moneydance handles de-duplication and categorization very differently.

As for the extensions, the Mac App Store rules prohibit us from providing a menu entry for the built-in extension manager in the app store version.
