Using the Mobile App

The Moneydance mobile app is a free companion to the desktop version of Moneydance (2019 and newer versions) and allows entry and modification of transactions while on the go.

Accounts, categories and recent transactions are synced from the computer to your mobile device.
Transactions entered or modified on your mobile device are then synced to your data file on the computer.

The mobile app offers remote syncing via Dropbox or iCloud.
This allows you to sync all of your devices remotely anywhere you have access to the internet.
Transactions entered when you don't have internet access will be synced the next time you connect.

You can find the steps to set up syncing outlined in this article.
