Careful, you might make Keith jealous.
Jaysen wrote:Ok, I am in the market for a new "finance manager". Quicken had ticked me off. Again. I looked at moneywell and really like the idea. Here is the problem that I have with "what I see".
1) It doesn't seem to support paycheck deduction tracking. I have a "regular gig" with healthcare, 401k, health saving, post tax IRA, etc. Believe it or not Uncle Samantha doesn't REQUIRE the employer to track all these. It is up to the individual.
2) Business tax tracking. Again, completely up to me to capture all the deduction and track sales tax for Snorts hobby. I am not sure how business management would work in this scenario.
Jaysen wrote:3) Developer response/tools. Ok, I am a bit of a tech snob. You want my money at least make me feel confident. Google groups for the support forum? And the few posts I found about my #1 and #1 issues the developer suggest that the folks change their thinking.
Jaysen wrote:All that said I think Kevin has a right to make the statement that he clearly believes and is passionate for: Moneywell is for MANAGING your cash and making wise spending decision. With that as his stated goal, I think he has succeeded.
Now you Moneywell users, can you point me in the right direction for #1 and #2 before I drop $$ on iBank? I will open that up to any one else as well other than moneydance. For some reason I can not get myself into that piece of software. Just too … bah.

Jaysen wrote:Tannie #1 and #2 are mostly due to my desire to keep the US and NY state governments out of my pockets. I expect that a lot of these "requirements" of mine are relates to my account telling me how I should be tracking things so she can maximize my deductions.
Jaysen wrote:I have been using the iBank demo with no issues. Granted I can't really to much as even a light month for me exceeds the limit for the trial. My looks into user experience seems to show that if the demo works the app works. I wasn't able to get a solid categorization of the user issues. I wonder is there is an unknown HW or second party app conflict.
Jaysen wrote:I guess what I am saying is that if I didn't have this established way of doing things and I was just looking into starting with a program and I didn't have all the business "stuff" to deal with Moneywell would be my app of choice. I was up and running with a viable plan in less than 15 minutes. I so want to use this thing that I may just buy it to see if I can force it to work.
Heck I may still use it and just tell my accountant "Don't I pay YOU to do the rest of this?"
Jaysen wrote:G**C*** and I parted company with some words that are not fit for use in a public forum. To get me back there would take an act of God or a threat from my accountant. It was a bad experience. Almost like communicating with vic-k.

So I tried it. I ended up with less money, because I was doing less work. I'd come home, eat lunch, do some laundry, take a nap--you know the syndrome. Now when I really need to get a bunch of writing done, I make sure to set aside some cash for having lunch out. Same goes for coffee and tea--if I didn't buy a lot of these things (as a form of rent), I'd be in trouble.
Basically, now I try to ask: will making this change cause me to spend less? But will it cut into productive writing time?
