As the prime designer of an award-winning application for medical imaging (See, I am very impressed with the elegant and thoughtful design of MoneyDance. It is clear that Mr. Reilly and his team gave great thought to the comprehensive design of this product before implementing the details. Fundamentals like the double-entry accounting and categories as accounts, hierarchal account trees, the extension interface, configurable home page, multi-step undo/redo, the platform-neutral implementation, the internationalization, the deep multi-currency support— all of these are great investments that make the implementation of important and useful features, and the user experience as a whole, really satisfying. It also clearly makes the software easier to maintain and to augment, and hence responsive to its growing customer base.

One thing I am a big stickler about is user interface responsivity versus latency-- having the application MAKE the user wait while it does something that the user cannot control. One of your biggest competitors is AWEFUL in this regard. MoneyDance is incredibly fast to navigate around, transactions download from external sources in the blink of an eye, registers scroll seamlessly, and the program starts up and shuts down in a scant few seconds. This is REALLY fantastic, and a welcome change from my previous experience.

Added to this great design, InfiniteKind seems to be a company with great values, great regard for customer sentiments, and a genuine sense of fairness. The company I founded sought out the same ideals and it certainly served and continues to it very well.

Bravo to you all, and I look forward to a long and productive relationship!
