Acemoney allows you to perform bank transfers and deposits. It is considered one of the simpler personal finance software on the market but we feel that is a plus due to the super user friendliness this software provides.
Moneydance 2008 – What started off as an open source project in 1997 soon became a product planned for the masses. Not as straightforward to use as Acemoney but it has many more features. Users can sync their data with their bank accounts. They do not have fees for the use of their online banking features. Moneydance works in all three major operating systems, Linux, MacOS and Windows.
Banktree Personal 2.0 – BankTree personal 2.0 rounds off the top personal finance software in review. It not only syncs with your bank accounts but enables the downloading of data from your account for your own personal use. It has most of the standard features found on the rest of our picks such as creating budgets, payrolls etc. Online bill payment is offered but is not free. Only two financial calculators are available (mortgage, loan).
