  • Great software!

    By bluenitro05
    I have been using this software for years and with every update I am more and more impressed! I highly recommend that anyone looking to track and budget their finances tries this free application.
  • Great software!

    By KitfoxIV
    This software is awesome. It is so much easier and simpler than quicken. The budget portion is the best I’ve found, Dave Ramsey would be proud of this accounting.
  • Love this finance app

    By ctylerbolton
    Ditch Quicken.....this is the stuff.
  • Can’t do basic math.

    By JLBiv
    When used in conjunction with the macOS app, displayed account balances are frequently wrong, even through all the transactions are present. After talking with support, the only thing I can do to fix it is figure out which transaction(s) the iOS device is ignoring, and then delete and re-add them on the desktop. Really annoying.
  • Improvement Suggestions Ignored

    By VM@RDU
    I’ve been a Banktivity (mac, iphone, ipad) user since the beginning when it was iBank. I gave up on Quicken for Mac after using since 1991 and converted to iBank. So, I consider myself a seasoned financial software user. Suggestions for much needed very simple Banktivity improvement features tend to go ignored. Ability to Sort Schedule Transactions (ST) by Account, adding the Search capability to ST windowS and ability to Print the list of the Sorted by Account and also single account sort list all seem very basic. I’ve had several Fraud events on my credit card accounts resulting in accounts having to be closed. If you’ve been through such a thing, one can appreciate all that you have to go through notifying all those ST Payees in the impacted account of the new account number, etc. In addition, the fraud results in having to reconfigure the new account numbers in Banktivity. It’s a laborious and basically manual effort due to Banktivity ST not being able to sort by account, no search field, and display and print ST account list sorted and/or by single account! I’ve made these suggestions to IGG Software numerous times over the years to no avail. Otherwise, Banktivity does a very good job.
  • CRUSHES Quicken in every single way

    By GoldfishBowl
    Unbelievably, Quicken couldn’t synchronize any of my TSP accounts or my Betterment account. The mobile app for Quicken also didn’t do much. Banktivity totally CRUSHES Quicken. Makes Quicken look like a toy. If you want a real Quicken alternative with full household financial tracking, reporting and management features, then Banktivity is the way to go.
  • Wasting my time

    By chicago cheesehead
    I’ve had multiple and consistent issues with discrepancies between my MacBook and my iPhone. I’ve contacted customer support, and although the tech guys are responsive, no one has ever been able to tell me how to avoid this going forward. So every couple of months when I reconcile Banktivity with my bank statements, I go through the same crap. Last time it took two hours to unsync then resync. Today it’s taken over 6 hours. It cost me a day of generating income. I’ve used Banktivity since 1999 (back when it was called iBank). This was their last time to help me fix it. I’m now looking for different software. For now though, I’m deleting the app and just sticking with the laptop version. Serious waste of time.
  • Nice app

    By MGBob
    This version is a definite improvement over the previous version. It syncs correctly between multiple platforms and I was pleased to see that I can now ID Point of Sale transactions correctly. I do note however that it seems to hang up now and again when I try to access it. Have to reboot the phone to get it to work. Happens often enough to be considered frustrating.
  • Forces Your Financial Data into the Cloud

    By skerbsf
    If you have any desire to sync this app with the desktop app, Banktivity forces you to sync your financial data into the cloud. They will “assure” you that all is fine and your data is safe because encryption. However, once your sensitive financial data is sitting on someone else’s server you have no control. Some day in the future when today’s encryption standards are considered weak, do you absolutely know that your data is not still sitting out there on one of their older servers for the taking? They should never require sensitive data like this on the cloud if we want to sync with our computer. UPDATE 2018-06-28 Whether I am the only person to have the encryption key is immaterial. At some point the encryption algorithms using today’s standards will become easier to crack in the future. Your customers have no ability to verify that the data stored is no longer sitting on any of your servers. Please provide a way to do local sync like you used to do.
  • Don’t waste your time

    By bkr1969
    While the phone app seems to work ok, it’s really pointless without the desktop portion and that software is horrible. There are so many flaws and problems that it’s hard to specify, but the worst is that it can’t even do simple addition and subtraction to keep a running balance. The phone and desktop were never in sync in the entire year I tried to make it work. I finally gave up because I would spend several hours simply trying to reconcile my account with my bank and would have to contact customer service every time because nothing worked right. Worthless.
