IGG Software readies for Snow Leopard with iBank Update

August 27, 2009 in Financial (E)

[prMac.com] Putney, VT - Keeping its flagship personal finance management app for the Mac up-to-the-minute, IGG announces the imminent release of iBank 3.5.2 ($60, free to iBank 3 users). With several cosmetic fixes, including improvements to assure seamless compatibility with Apple's 10.6 Snow Leopard update, iBank 3.5.2 will be available for download on August 28, the same day that the newest Mac OS ships.

"As Mac-only developers," says IGG President Ian Gillespie, "it's self-evident that we'd want to stay on top of Mac technology. Our customers expect it, and it keeps us ahead of competing products that aren't as responsive to Mac users."

iBank 3 is an Intel-native desktop application that has seen rapid adoption among Mac users since its release. The software has already been updated twice this summer, most notably in the release that delivered wireless sync with iBank Mobile, a number-one-selling finance app for iPhone and iPod touch. In addition to improved compatibility with Snow Leopard, the new iBank 3.5.2 also:

* Fixes a QIF import bug where an account could be created without a name
* Adds improved direct connect (OFX) support for certain banks
* Fixes a bug in reports when used with transfers, and another bug with split entries
* Addresses an issue in which scheduled transactions post without notification

Also fully compatible with Snow Leopard are iBiz 4 and iBiz Professional, the single-user and multi-user versions of IGG's popular time-tracking, project management and billing app. Free trial copies of iBank or iBiz, both requiring Mac OS 10.5 Leopard (or higher), can be downloaded from their respective product pages.

IGG Software, LLC, was founded in 2003 by developer Ian Gillespie to offer intuitive, elegant and powerful applications for individuals and small businesses. Based in Putney, Vermont, its flagship products are iBank, for personal finance management, and iBiz, for time-tracking and billing.
