IGG Software releases iBank 3.4.2 - Improves Stability and Performance

April 28, 2009 in Financial (E)

[prMac.com] Putney, VT - IGG Software announces the release of iBank 3.4.2, the latest version of its flagship application for personal and small business finance management. The update ($60, or free to existing iBank 3 users) is available for immediate download.

This version comes just four weeks after the release of iBank 3.4.1, making iBank an even better choice for Mac users seeking a full-featured alternative to Quicken. "Our user base has expanded dramatically over the last year," notes IGG President Ian Gillespie. "As a result, we've been able to take feedback from those customers and make rapid fixes to iBank. Some of them only affect a few users, but taken together, they improve the experience for every user."

* Among the fixes to iBank 3.4.2 is the elimination of a bug affecting QIF export, allowing for improved compatibility with other apps or users.

* iBank 3.4.2 also improves the speed of certain operations which previously might take an unnecessarily long time, including adding a budget, or adding many transactions to the reconcile table in statement view.

* Reconciliation is also improved with the fix of a bug in adding transactions using the button, and by the elimination of a potential hang when expanding a split item in the reconcile window.

* Certain users will find fixes in specific areas such as direct downloading from Fidelity Investments; with Smart Accounts in the French edition of iBank; or in disabling split items in the British English version.

* Numerous other bug fixes in this version include updates to the Budget widget in dealing with transfers; to possible duplicate items in reports; to creating statements with updated values; and many other fixes.

With a rapidly growing user base and an active community in IGG's online forums, iBank 3 has emerged as the leading Mac-only personal finance app. Rated "Great" in a recent issue of MacLife, iBank 3 features automatic account downloads, interactive graphs powered by Core Animation, loan management, and syncing capability from an iPhone or iPod Touch. iBank Mobile, a stand-alone iPhone edition, will be available this spring.
