Cha-Ching Users Offered 50% Discount to Use Money

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 06:07 PM

"Yesterday, we posted that Intuit was basically discontinuing Cha-Ching after hiring the developers and purchasing the app, and it was a little disappointing that they weren't offering any upgrade plan."

They must have read it because Jumsoft is now offering 50% off for Money if you are a Cha-Ching user. Submit proof of purchase before September 30th and they will give you half off. Jumsoft offered this when I was switching to Money from Quicken last year I believe, and Money also has an iPhone and iPad app that you can sync with your desktop/laptop version. I like the program, is easy to use, but the only wish I have for it is to eventually allow syncing between your Dropbox or MobileMe accounts. They currently offer Wi-Fi syncing but it would make it a lot more convenient to use cloud syncing.

AccountEdge Small Business Software Updated for 2010

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 10:00 AM

"Acclivity has introduced a new annual edition of their small business accounting software, AccountEdge. AccountEdge 2010 now includes more detailed tracking of store items, analysis of sales profits, bank deposit slip printing, and integration with EnStore, a Web store that works with a point-of-sale system."

This is a pretty much full service accounting package that can help you with budgets, sales, invoices inventory and pretty much any type of accounting service you need for your business. It also integrates with a beta site called "EnStore" so that you can sell your products online. This requires OS X 10.4 or better and licenses cost $300.00 USD, with upgrades running $160.00 USD. If you are looking for accounting software, this is another option to investigate.

Accounting Changes Benefit Apple, and Others

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 09:00 AM

"An accounting rule change, approved yesterday, could drive Apple's reported earnings to the moon, and could send stock prices up, too."

FASB, the Financial Accounting Standards Board here in the US, approved an accounting rule change regarding how companies keep track of subscription sales. Previously, when the sale was made, a company had to spread the income out over the period of the subscription. In the case of the iPhone, it was spread over 8 quarters. Now when the sale is made the income can be reported whole and not in sections, which will show true earnings for the specific reporting period. This is also why updates to the program were free for the iPhone but not for the iPod Touch. Will this change once they start using the new accounting rule and they start charging iPhone users for the updates? What are your thoughts?

Intuit Delays Quicken for Mac Version Until 2010

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 12:00 PM

http://www.appleinsider.com/article...ed_to_2010.html

"Looking to quash rumors that it will may never get around to releasing a once publicized overhaul to Quicken for the Mac, Intuit announced Thursday that the latest iteration of its financial management software will finally arrive in February of 2010."

I don't know about you but I'd rather buy a program that works rather than one that has been rushed out. Granted, 2 years from the announcement is well beyond rushed out, but it sounds like they are taking into consideration input from the beta groups and tweaking the program to make it more user friendly. I just hope they come out with an app for the iPhone that will sync with the desktop, that would make this a must buy for me. How about you, what program  or programs do you use to keep track of your financial life?

Quickbooks Online Available for Mac Users

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 10:00 AM

http://theappleblog.com/2009/05/05/...e-to-mac-users/

"We had a sneak peek of the new QuickBooks Online back in January at Macworld Expo, and now the Mac community can start using the service. Intuit announced today that the new release of QuickBooks Online is finally compatible with the Safari browser and, thus, is available to Mac users."

Having used Quickbooks for various jobs over the years, it has evolved into a very complete and well thought out program. The advantages of this web-based version are the ability to have multiple users in different locations, or having portability with remote access via the web. The only thing it doesn't have is inventory control, so if you don't need that feature, it might be something you can use. However it only works on Safari 3.1. They have several pricing options depending on the features you need, from free to $39.95 USD per month, and have a nice comparison page set up in case you aren't sure if you need online or standalone editions.
