[prMac.com] Putney, Vermont - Following its approval at the iTunes App Store, IGG Software announces the release of iBank Mobile 1.2 for iPhone and iPod touch. A free update for current users, the latest version of the mobile finance management app adds enhanced resolution via Retina Display support, multi-tasking capabilities, the ability to search for transactions across all accounts and a new QIF export feature, as well as several other enhancements and fixes.
"We've been using iBank Mobile ourselves for over a year now," says IGG Chief Architect James Gillespie, "which made it easy to see what we wanted next. Since a lot of our customers were asking for the same changes, we knew this version would be great."
Compatible with both iOS 3 and 4, iBank Mobile draws from the features of iBank to check account balances, enter transactions and categorize expenses, even in multiple currencies. Designed to sync seamlessly with desktop copies of iBank - remotely via MobileMe or locally via Wi-Fi - iBank Mobile also works as a separate, stand-alone app for handheld finance management. In particular, the new QIF data export capability lets users who start tracking finances with iBank Mobile to migrate data to iBank on their desktops at a later date. Additional enhancements include improved performance, as well as numerous bug fixes.
Originally available in July 2009, iBank Mobile was a number one-selling finance app on iTunes within a day of its release. iBank Mobile can be used by itself to check account balances and update finances on the fly; in conjunction with iBank for Mac, it allows multiple users, such as couples or business partners, to sync to the same data. It also offers the ability to see recent totals across multiple accounts and to enter and categorize transactions in seconds, with intelligent autofill speeding entry even further.
iBank 4, the leading Mac-only personal finance management software, was released on September 15 to enthusiastic reviews. The Apple Blog observed: "Still waiting for Intuit to do something with Quicken Essentials for Mac? Stop wasting your time and try the latest version of iBank from IGG Software. It's like Quicken, except it has features."
