IGG Software (www.iggsoftware.com) has rung up version 4.7 of iBank, its Quicken alternative. The new version offers:
° Fast transaction entry and dynamic editing options in a two-line register and more;
° Instant reports;
° Investment tracking;
° Enhanced envelope budgeting;
° A set-up assistant for transferring data from Mac and PC versions of Quicken, MS Money, or other finance programs.
In addition to its new set-up assistant for importing Quicken Essentials account data, iBank 4.7 adds Direct Connect support for holders of Vanguard investment accounts. While this data could previously be imported via Web Downloads from iBank’s built-in browser, Vanguard customers can now import their transactions directly.
iBank 4.7 is available immediately via the IGG website and has been submitted to the Mac App Store. IGG offers 30-day free trial downloads of iBank, unlimited free support (including Live Chat) and a 90-day guarantee on direct purchases from the IGG web store.
The retail price of iBank 4 is US$59.99; licensed users of iBank 3 can upgrade for $29.99. iBank 4 requires Mac OS X 10.6 or higher, and will run on Macs using either Intel or PowerPC processors. The latest version can be downloaded at http://www.iggsoftware.com/ibank, where there is also access to a library of iBank 4 video tutorials and an in-depth user manual.
