I currently use quicken and hate it. Mostly due to having to buy it again every 2 years to be able to download bank transactions. Once I buy your program can I use it forever or am I going to have to keep sending you money to keep it fully functional

    A purchase of Moneydance allows you to use that version of the program for as long as you want. We never 'sunset' old versions of the program to force you to upgrade, and have not written anything in the program to even allow us to do that. Typically, you can upgrade to the next full version of the program for free, and beyond that you would have to purchase a half-priced upgrade key. Again though, you do not have to upgrade if your current version is working fine for you. There will likely come a time when an old version can no longer run on newer systems (people running a version of Moneydance older than the 2008 version are starting to have this issue), but that is standard for all forms of software.

    I encourage you to download our free trial version from http://infinitekind.com/downloads and experiment with the program before you decide if you would like to purchase it. 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 things like importing from other programs and connections with your bank. 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.
