I am converting from Windows to a MAC. I currently run Quicken 2014 windows version. Will the data from Windows Quicken convert to Money Dance? I hate to loose five years of financial data.

    Hi Russ,

    I would recommend reading the following article, which details how you can export your data from Quicken, and import into Moneydance -

    If you haven't already, I encourage you to download our free trial version 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 importing your data.

    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 from here:

    Please let me know if I can be of further assistance, and thanks for your interest in Moneydance.

    Infinite Kind Support

    If I'm not mistaken IOS is the OS for the Apple Smartphone.

    The Smartphone applications are ancillary applications largely meant for entry of data one the move (entering bank and credit card applications as they occur). The main Moneydance software must still reside on a desktop or notebook type machine and the smart phone synchronizes with this to update the main datafile that is on the desktop/notebook.

    The smartphone applications are not standalone programs.

    You can export your data from Quicken on a PC into a QIF file or files, move these files to a MAC then import them into Moneydance on the MAC.

    QIF files are simple ASCII files
