What is "family sharing" and what does it allow youth do? For example, if I download the app onto an iMac, can I also use it on my iPad?

    Family sharing is a term used by apple to mean that member of your family with different devices and accounts can access your apps and other downloads.

    With respect to Moneydance this means that if you download the Mac version of Moneydance from the Mac App Store, other members of your family can use the same app if they have mac as well without having to pay to the download again.

    Now the mobile version of Moneydance complicates this somewhat. the version of Moneydance for the iPad and iPhone is not the same app as the app for the Mac. It would not be covered under the "Family sharing" plan. However that doesn't matter in this case since the mobile version of Moneydance is free anyway when you purchase the desktop version.

    Thanks Ben. A couple of other questions before I try your program out.

    1. If I purchase the app through Apple’s App Store, rather than directly from your website, will you still honor the money back guarantee?
    2. I currently have Quicken on a PC. I sit possible to export a QIF file from a PC to a Mac? Or, do I need to start with a new file that is created solely on my Mac?

    1) No, the money back guarantee is only for purchases made directly from our website. If you purchase form a 3rd party you are subject to their terms and conditions and must request a refund from them.

    2) If your version of Quicken supports export to QIF then yes, you can transfer that QIF file from our PC to the Mac and import it into Moneydance. Note that Quicken 2015 does not support export to QIF.

    I encourage you to download the free trial of Moneydance to see if it meets your needs before making a purchase. You can download the free trial from here:

    Thanks again Ben. Because it is the end of the year, I have decided to simply start 2016 fresh with a new MD file and save my previous QIF files on the PC that they now reside. Maybe even print out a copy. I may download the trial version, but have confidence in the reviews that I have read that it should work fine.

    Hi Tom

    The success of QIF imports varies considerably. There is no official specification for the QIF file format and every version of Quicken produces QIF files that vary in some way. A successful QIF import is not certain. If being able to transfer your existing Quicken data is important to you I recommend trying the transfer with the trial version before making a purchase.
