Pros: Managing personal finances isn't a task you want to invest heavily in - either in time or monetary terms - but it's important to manage efficiently. There are some good free web-based apps out there, but many fear that using a web-based application may compromise their privacy or security. Moneyline is a great little tool that makes tracking income and expenses and monitoring balances in bank accounts and on loans and credit cards super-easy. It operates off-line, although it has the option to link to your bank account and import transactions automatically if you prefer to avoid manually entering every transaction. It gives a clear overview of your financial status, with balances in every account clearly displayed, and you can easily track account history and transfer between accounts. It lets you set up as many categories, sub-categories, suppliers and income sources as you wish to make classifying transactions super-easy, and the interface is user-friendly and easy to work with. It even lets you set up a budget and, if you like, can alert you to over-spending in any expense category.

NCH is a very user-responsive developer that produces a wide range of excellent, low-cost software tools and supports an active user community. Moneyline is MS-Windows-compatible and appears to be robust, bug-free, quick to load, and fully usable without risks of conflicts with other software on your system. Just a great little tool.

Cons: Account reconciliation seems rather quirky and I note from forum comments that many users avoid reconciling and just check their displayed balance against statements periodically. The notion of assigning an imbalance as an unidentified transaction seems odd to me. I would rather it be saved as an imbalance and be able to go in and fix it when inspection of account history exposed the problem. The issue I've had is that once an account goes out of balance for any reason, it's difficult - if not impossible - to rectify the problem. That said, I find reconciliation entirely unnecessary given the ease of comparing the displayed balance with your statement balance.

Reporting is good, but not great. I'd like to see a wider range of reporting options. But it's inexpensive software, so that's probably an unreasonable expectation.

The facility to link to your bank seems to be limited to US banks. Us Australian users are at a disadvantage there.

For me, these are all minor issues, but given NCH's approach to software development, I wouldn't be surprised to see improvements in these areas before too long.

Overall: Makes managing personal finances a breeze.
