I have been a Quicken user for many years however the newer versions are just not satisfactory (crashes a lot, transfer of data from one version to another does not work well, downloading bank information not as quick or automatic as in the past, passwords do not sync well with the bank, etc) Due these issues I began to research other personal finance software and learned about Moneydance. It looks to be a very good program which I plan to try. Before purchasing I need to know if it can be downloaded on more than one computer. I travel a lot and need Moneydance on my Microsoft Tablet and on my home desktop as well.
Thank you for your help.

    Hi Robert,

    If you haven't already, I encourage you to download our free trial version and experiment with the program. The demo version is fully functional and allows you to manually enter 100 transactions. Imported transactions are not limited, so you'll be able to fully test importing your data from Quicken.
    If you decide to purchase the program at a later date you can keep all your data, the license key simply unlocks the ability to manually enter more transactions. You can download the trial version of Moneydance here.

    You're able to download the Moneydance software on multiple systems, and can use the same license key to register on each computer (provided it is for personal use). You can follow the steps in this article to setup sharing data via Dropbox, so it can be accessed from each system.
    If you'd like to setup syncing between Moneydance and a mobile device, the steps are slightly different, and you can find instructions in this article.

    When importing your data, if the QIF file format is available to you when exporting from Quicken, you should follow these steps. In particular make sure you specify to Import into a new account rather than an existing account. And you set the source to "From another program".
    It is highly recommended to export all Quicken data into a single QIF file, as doing so makes the import process much smoother. Please use the option in Quicken to export "all accounts" if available. The one exception to this is if you have accounts in more than one currency - if thats the case, then you can follow these steps to import multiple QIF files.

    I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any further questions, or need assistance getting setup.
