    Hi All

    What does everyone use in terms of money management software to manage home finances?

    I've been looking at quicken 2011 plus, but seems overly complicated. I'm looking for something like MS Money that is now out of support.

    Online software would be my preference if anyone is using a good one.

    There is a good online tool @ www.mint.com but at present it is only for the USA and Canada.

    Any suggestions or recommendations?

    Cheers.

    I recently moved my business finances from Quickbooks Pro to Saasu and was looking for a similar move for my personal finances.

    After a lot of research, I concluded that there simply wasn't anything out there yet which I felt confident enough in to handle my 16 years worth of historical personal finance data.

    So I'm still using Quicken Personal Plus - it does what I need.

    I've tried a bunch of stuff lately - XeroPersonal to ANZ Money manager. Latest was Pocketbook - from what I understand, young company but works great so far. https://getpocketbook.com

    I'm working on Pocketbook and I'm pretty happy with it. It is highly recommended because it is simple and straightforward...

    Has anyone found anything better recently.

    I am still using the old MS money but it is getting pretty scratchy and I think with the next OS upgrade it is going to be the end of it.

    For my clients with Property we now recommend POSH which seems to work well.

    Just looking for suggestions

    I've been using YNAB but I'm not a fan of their new guise. So keeping an ear out for alternatives.

    Yes, Quicken Personal Plus for me also. Can't remember how many years now but a lot.

    Another Quicken Personal Plus fan here, although I just got a new computer so now I have to find the discs again so I can reload it on this one.... I don't believe they've brought out a new version for quite a while?

    I had a quick look at Reckon Accounts Persoanal Plus 2016. It mentions features for managing shares. Does it also have features for IPs?

    Thanks.
