If you're new to Moneydance, you can view our 'Getting Started' Knowledge Base Articles which detail how to setup your accounts and use the main Moneydance features.

You can also find the full Moneydance user guide here. 

Getting started with Moneydance can be easy. While everyone manages their finances differently, there are some steps which are fairly universal. It's not necessary to do these steps in order, or even to do them all, but they're a good starting point.

Remember, you can try Moneydance completely free to see if you like it. All of Moneydance's tools are available in the trial of the program, which can be downloaded from here.

  1. Decide when you want to start the records you're keeping in Moneydance. Some people will choose the date they begin using Moneydance, some people will choose the first date of that month, some may choose the first day of the year.

  2. Set up your Accounts. To create, edit, or delete accounts, go to the Tools->Accounts menu. When you create your accounts you should enter the Initial Balance (or Debt) for each account. This number should be the balance of each account immediately before the date you chose in step 1. It's also VERY important to choose the currency associated with each account (if different from the currency of your data file). This value cannot be changed once you've entered a transaction in the account.

  3. Set up your Categories. To create, edit, or delete accounts go to the Tools->Categories menu. It's generally easier to delete categories you won't be using. You can always add categories at a later point. It's important not to delete categories which have transactions associated with them, as this will delete those transactions.

  4. Set up your Online Banking connections. For detailed instructions please refer to the Moneydance user guide here, or our Knowledge Base Article If your bank is not currently supported, contact us to see if we can begin doing so.

  5. Build a budget. Use the categories you created in step 3 to set your income and expense items. You can track your budget performance in a number of ways- through the Budget Bars on the Moneydance home page, through the Budget sidebar report, through reports, or using the Budget Status graph visible at the top of the of your Moneydance window.

  6. Install the extensions you'll need. Some commonly used extensions are the Quotes and Exchange Rates extension which downloads stock prices and currency exchange rates and the Moneydance Updater extension which notifies you when a newer version of Moneydance is available. You can find the full list of Moneydance extensions here.

  7. Get started entering your transactions- Entering your Paycheck, Learn to use Keyboard Shortcuts, Create Reminders for your frequent transactions.

Ever since Quicken stopped supporting Quicken 2005 for Mac, there hasn’t been another Quicken release that’s been as good. Mac users haven’t been left high and dry by Quicken, though. They can still use Quicken for Mac but it is an inferior experience compared to Quicken for Windows.

If you don’t want to use Quicken for Mac or run a virtual machine for Quicken for Windows, you’ll need to find some alternative personal financial software. That’s where Moneydance comes in. 

Moneydance is a Quicken alternative with a strong Macs app that also works on Windows and Linux, as well as iOS and Android mobile devices. There are some differences between Quicken and Moneydance. But many Mac users who have tried it like it. In this article, we’ll look at what Moneydance offers and some differences between it and Quicken.

Quick Summary

  • Top challenger to Quicken, especially for Mac users
  • Offers budgeting, bill pay, investment tracking, and more
  • One-time fee after free trial (up to 100 transactions)
  • 90-day money back guarantee

Moneydance Features

Who Is Moneydance?

Moneydance was developed by a company called The Infinite Kind, which is based in Edinburgh, Scotland. They also created SyncSpace and SketchTo.

What Do They Offer?

If you’re familiar with Quicken, you’ll be familiar with the features in Moneydance. The interfaces are different but both apps have the same goal — to help you manage your personal finances. Some of the major features of Moneydance include:

Online Banking And Bill Payment

Moneydance let’s you connect to your online financial institution and download transactions automatically. Hundreds of banks are supported.

After transactions are downloaded, Moneydance will try to automatically categorize and clean them up as well. Or, if you prefer the manual route, you can download an import a OFX, QFX, or QIF file.

Bill payment is available as well. Some financial institutions require you to complete a bill pay application before integrating bill pay with a third-party app.

Interface And Account Management

The Moneydance interface is based on an account register. It is made to look like a checkbook. The summary page left pane contains all of your accounts, reports, graphs, and budgets. Accounts are categorized by type, such as bank accounts, credit cards, loans, and investments.

The middle pane is the register and the right pane is the calendar. The calendar is where you can see reminders, upcoming bills, and expenses for the month. Expenses and income are displayed at the top, so you always know where you stand with overspending.


With a budget in place, Moneydance will alert you as you get close to the limit for certain categories. You can also create multiple budgets. Compare Moneydance with other top-rated budgeting tools.

Investment Tracking

Moneydance will automatically download the latest prices for your investments. It supports stocks, bonds, CDs, mutual funds, and more. Stock splits and cost basis computations are easy to manage with Moneydance.

Quicken Vs. Moneydance

What are some of the main differences between these two financial management apps? Let’s go through them.

  • Credit score monitoringThis is a Quicken only feature.
  • Business transactions: Quicken has a version of its software that is oriented towards rental properties and businesses.
  • Interface: Some people have mentioned that Moneydance’s interface looks outdated. However, this doesn’t negatively affect or limit its functionality.
  • Foreign currencies and financial institutions: Moneydance wins here. It supports multiple currencies conversions and integrates with foreign financial institutions.
  • Experience for Mac users: This one also goes to Moneydance. Quicken’s Mac version is not as good as its Windows version or Moneydance's Mac software.
  • One-time fee: Unlike Quicken, Moneydance is a one-time purchase.

Switching From Quicken To Moneydance

After exporting your data from Quicken, you can import it into Moneydance. This is not a flawless experience, however. Expect some issues along with ongoing clean up for a few days or weeks after the import. This generally means re-categorizing some transactions and removing duplicates.

Are There Any Fees?

Yes, Moneydance costs $49.99. It’s a one-time charge so you don’t have to worry about monthly subscriptions. There is also a free trial. You can enter in 100 transactions before the trial ends. Additionally, you get a 90-day money back guarantee.

How Do I Open An Account?

Moneydance is a desktop/mobile app. Visit to purchase, download, and install the software.

Chromebook users should no that there is currently no browser-based experience on the web. However, there is a Linux app which could be a workaround if you're willing to jump through a few hoops.

Is My Money Safe?

Yes, Moneydance uses high-grade encryption when communicating with financial institutions and its mobile app.

Is It Worth It?

If you’ve tried Quicken for Mac but found it lacking, Moneydance might be the alternative that fits all of your financial management needs. With Moneydance, you get access to all the same features regardless of your operating system of choice. 

Moneydance is also cheaper than Quicken since it doesn’t charge an annual fee. And given that there’s a 100-transaction free trial (plus a 90-day money back guarantee), there's really no downside to giving it a whirl to see if it has what you're looking for.

But if you're looking for a free personal finance tool that also offers web access, an online-based budget and investment tracker, like Personal Capital, may be a better fit. Check out the five FREE financial tools everyone needs.

Ubisoft Squeeze Out the Sweat and Money - Just Dance 2021 Review

While EA Sports is churning out sports sims, Ubisoft continues to re-release console-based digital house party attraction Just Dance. The new version of the rhythm game turned out to be bright, dynamic and really exciting... that is, absolutely the same as the previous part of the series. We explain why you should think carefully before buying Just Dance 2021.

The Just Dance series started back in 2009 and has attracted a huge audience even outside of arcade clubs and Dance Dance Revolution. The main reason for the success of the franchise was the simplicity of the gameplay, which the name itself hints at - “Just Dance”, which everyone can handle in one way or another. In general, everything is so, but it’s still worth explaining what the game is.

Dancing is my element

As you might guess, the essence of Just Dance is dancing, or rather, trying to repeat the most diverse steps behind the dancers on the screen. The system tracks movements using a camera or device in the player's hand and awards points for accuracy. The gameplay formula is extremely simple, but it is quite addictive if you find the right tracks, the company and the strength to get up from the couch.

You can use an ordinary smartphone with a gyroscope as a "gamepad" in Just Dance - no additional accessories are required here, although the developers could have gone this way. Of course, in this case, in order to get high marks in the game, it is enough just to move one hand, but in the process, you still involuntarily begin to dance with the rest of the body.

Just Dance looks especially organic on the Nintendo Switch, which seems to have been created for home entertainment in a small company. With this console, you don’t even need a smartphone to play - basic Joy-Cons will be enough. In addition to the precise gyroscope, these controllers are equipped with special straps: believe me, even if your palms never sweat, launching a gamepad or smartphone directly into the TV while dancing is very, very simple.

Thanks to the overall uncomplicated gameplay and the great combination of music, games and simple activities, Just Dance is suitable for almost everyone. In addition to the standard mode, there is a fitness interface that counts calories burned instead of points for accurate dance performance, as well as a children's section with simple movements, cartoon style and cartoon songs. This series does not need more - it would seem.

Only dancing and you

All of the above applies to Just Dance 2021, which is great. The series has been consistently entertaining high-profile companies for more than ten years, making those who want to lose weight effortlessly sweat and trying to diversify E3 with mass dances. But there is one problem, or rather, there are already at least three of them - starting from the 2019 version, the franchise has hardly changed.

It is clear that dancing in a playful way, and even with the slogan "Just dance", is difficult to diversify, but even a new interface would be very useful. I was extremely disappointed when I activated my Ubisoft key, downloaded the game, skipped the colorful intro and returned to Just Dance 2019.

The only interesting new feature is the Quick Play feature available on the main screen of the game. Thanks to her, you can not delve into a huge library of songs and playlists, but simply dance to a randomly selected song, but this works until the first inappropriate track. It would be great if the game immediately offered options from five different selections and did not rush the user with a ten-second countdown.

In this regard, the comparison with EA Sports simulators is the most accurate. Year after year, Just Dance fans get the same game - FIFA fans at least try to improve the physics of the ball and give digital football players a human look. But Just Dance could well have simple rhythm games in the Mario Party format, a Dance Dance Revolution-style mode with a special carpet as an additional accessory, or even creative modes with the ability to independently select movements, at least for children's songs. There are a lot of options, use Ubisoft.

And the music drives you crazy

As a result, when buying Just Dance 2021, owners of at least one previous game in the series pay ₽3,990 for 40 new songs and a month of Unlimited subscription, which gives access to an expanded music library. Considering that the same amount can pay for more than two years of subscription in the previous version of Just Dance, the offer is at least not very profitable. Unless someone urgently needed a couple of songs by Billy Eilish, BLACKPINK or The Weeknd right here and now.

The Just Dance 2021 basic tracks list does have a few popular songs, but in most cases they either sound too monotonous or not suitable for dancing at all - at least not in the format of the game. For example, in this part of the series there are two versions of Without Me by Eminem at once, but in both cases you want to listen more than dance.

I'm not the biggest fan of dancing, so I was helped to test Just Dance 2021 by a small company, the female half of which knows almost the entire Ultimate library by heart. Even for them, there were only a few interesting options in the new selection of tracks - let alone the male part: we quickly became disillusioned with dancing to Eminem and returned to the cult Dragostea Din Tei from O-Zone, The Bremen Town Musicians and The Sun in Hands.

Going back to the FIFA parallel, Just Dance 2020 just had a little roster update. At the same time, Ubisoft updates the Ultimate library quite often, including tracks from the latest installments. Under such conditions, the entire series should have switched to a shareware model with a subscription a long time ago, because the new annual versions make less and less sense.

No more parties

It's quite possible that Just Dance is heading towards the game-service format. It currently has three free tracks that are technically an Ultimate subscription. By the way, they recently included a new song from the virtual band K/DA from League of Legends. Ubisoft could expand this collection to the same 40 songs, and give the rest only for money.

In such a system, Ultimate could become a kind of Xbox Game Pass with constant track rotations. If you add to this the ability to buy tracks individually or in whole sets, Ubisoft would certainly get even more than from annual re-releases. Just imagine how much circulation an add-on with a dozen BTS songs would sell - it becomes scary.

In the meantime, Just Dance 2021 remains the most common game in the series, worth buying only for die-hard fans and those who want to dance in front of the TV for the first time. When you get to know the series and apart from the previous parts, this is still the best way to warm up or have fun with friends without leaving home.

  • dancing — This is always fun
  • game is easy to master
  • . The presence of network and command modes
  • excellent visual design

  • is too few innovations
  • Weak set of new songs
  • CLAYS PLAY 9005 9000 9000 9000 9000 9000 9000 9000. ..

    Just Dance 2021 did not make the series worse and even brought a couple of pleasant little things, but it is simply impossible to evaluate it without looking back at the previous parts. In the world of game-services, each year of stagnation should subtract at least a point from the score of the next re-release.

    Until the end of the warm season in every Moscow park you can learn to dance


    The schedule includes social dances suitable for everyone, trendy breakdance, contemporary dance, ballroom, Scottish and others

    Dance practice in Gorky Park.

    Kirill Zykov / Moskva Agency

    Gorky Park

    Every Saturday at 16.00 on the central platform of the Park of Culture and Recreation, you can take one step from "I don't dance at all" to "I can't be stopped anymore". Master classes are conducted by teachers of the dance school "These are People".

    – While dancing in the park and in a large open area, we began to understand that it is quite difficult for people passing by to perceive dance as something natural for everyone. Not everyone in the city can afford to start dancing. This is our main mission - to show all people that, regardless of age and dance level, you can start dancing at any time, - says the choreographer of the "Dancing" project on TNT and the founder of the school Alexander Mogilev.
