    How to you find this compares with Buddi, which you reviewed a couple weeks ago (and which I’ve been using, fairly happily, ever since)?

    Dear Mr.
    MoneyManager is more advanced. Is has excellent predefined reporting features. One big advantage is the splitting feature so that one operation can be split into few categories (a current major drawback for Buddi or Homebank as long as you do not want to just list your operations). Anyway, I prefer buddi interface, but MoneyManager is more efficient.

    Thanks FabriceV, I appreciate the answer.

    Its good, but does not have billing/invoicing. Good for personal/home users but not for small businesses.
