* Among the most important changes in iBank 3.2 is improved speed for users with many Smart Accounts.

* iBank's web app now works smoothly with iPhone OS 2.0 via MobileMe, and relevant URL changes have been implemented updating .mac to me.com.

* Further updates in iBank 3.2 include: improved searching that now compares parent category names; improved Javascript handling in the built-in browser; improved importing of QIF files with split transfers; improved ROI reports; improved selection of securities in Portfolio View; improved copy-and-paste; improved French localization; as well as additional enhancements and fixes.

This update and others to follow are the result of a summer-long, working honeymoon trip for IGG president Ian Gillespie. "It was an incredible luxury," Gillespie says, "to be able to travel, relax, and work on development from the road, without the day-to-day distractions of the office. If it can be this productive, I would like to honeymoon every year."
