When MMEX broke on me and I lost years of data [a HUGE bummer, because I absolutely LOVED it!!], I looked at every personal finance software and ended up with GNUCash. It's been very stable, and I just had to do a clean install and while I wan't able to import the data which I had exported from within the program, I WAS able to restore the backup file I had also made.

By fully using the double entry accounting features in GnuCash, you can know (for example) not only that you spent $25 at Hugemart but that you spent $13 on groceries, $2 on disinfecting wipes, and $5 on motor oil. Later on, you can use data from that transaction and others to find out how much you're spending each month on food, home supplies, and car maintenance, along with other expense categories. See More

The YNAB team does a great job of offering rapid response times to support requests, listening to user feedback and implementing commonly requested features into the app via frequent updates as well providing live financial workshops on a daily basis at no additional charge. All of these features make the subscription model well worth the cost to me. See More
YNAB lets you try it's software free for just over a month. This gives you a bit of flexibility when doing a monthly budget - 4 extra days to review your budget and determine whether YNAB helped out enough to justify the $5 price. If you're a student, you can get an additional 12 months for free (for a total of 13 months) and after that you can get 10% off yearly subscriptions. See More
Very nice and useful program if you wan't to track your financing, being an ordinary guy, and not some crazy buisnessman with hundreds transactions every day. It comes with a server for allowing you to use it in any browser -for quick/dirty only- recording of transactions (it needs to be set up though). It is only a tiiiny bit restricting, for example Expenses have a category depth of two. Main category and subcategory. Also payees don't have categories, or tags or something. Other than that, I'm absolutely pleased. See More
That fresh tast again ! ^ ^ See More
Mint can be set to alert you to various events such as upcoming bills, or low balances on any accounts. It can be set to alert you from the app, through email or by text message. In addition you can sign up to recieve monthly emails about your money and ways to improve your budget. See More
I spent more then 20 days trying to find good Financial manager software that fit my needs, all what I have tried has problems or missed features, finally I purchased Quicken and I deleted all the other softwares such as Mint and others. The software is not cheap and they don't offer free version for trial, but they do offer money back up to 30 days. The software on Mac is reliable and stable, strong code, fast actions, no any bugs, full features that other software has. It's not cheap but you get what you pay for, and you buy peace of mind.
