SEE Finance 2.0.2

In early December, Scimonoce Software released SEE Finance 2.0, a major update for the personal finance app that was rebuilt alongside the company’s new iOS app. New features include inline transaction entry, support for storing files on iCloud Drive, automatic creation and updating of transfer transactions, a calendar view for transactions, and transaction tags. The new release also improves investment transaction entry and tracking, adds new reporting capabilities, improves budgeting, and brings redesigned Scheduled Transactions along with a new “pending” transactions option. SEE Finance 2 now requires macOS 10.12 Sierra or later, a big step up from version 1’s minimum requirement of 10.6 Snow Leopard.

At the end of December, SEE Finance was updated to version 2.0.2 with improved duplicate transaction checking, improved CSV file exporting for reports, and a bug fix that adjusted the dates sent for download connections.

Because SEE Finance 2.0 is essentially an entirely new piece of software, Scimonoce Software notes on its Upgrade page that some of the features available in version 1 are not available in version 2 — including loan amortization schedules, transaction filters, memorized transactions, automatic file backups, and built-in Web browsers for downloading files from institution Web sites. Scimonoce Software plans to bring these features back in future updates.

SEE Finance 2 for the Mac is available from the Scimonoce Software Web site and the Mac App Store for $39.99 ($10 less than version 1), and the SEE Finance 2 iOS app costs $4.99. There is no upgrade pricing for the Mac app, though a free 30-day trial is available. Additionally, SEE Finance 2 is on sale from the Scimonoce Software Web site for $29.99 for an unspecified limited time. ($39.99 new, free update from version 2, 24.3 MB, 10.12+)

I have had quite a few download problems but See Support has been exceptional helpful. I turned to See Financial after Quicken dumped Mac users a number of years ago. Im not looking back!

Shame on them for requiring os 10.12. Leaves long time users in the dust.

The new version adds many new and requested features. That seems like a positive to me. When developers add new features, they often adopt macOS features not available in older OS releases. To this developer's credit, they offer older releases of SEE Finance ( version 1.x ) on their web site. It looks to me like the developer is doing all the right things.

I went with SEE when it became evident that Q2007 was being abandoned (SEE was the *only* one out there that cleanly took my Q-data--- even as the Ver 0.x beta that continued to get even better )

I bought 1.x when it came out and have enjoyed no-charge powerful updates since.

I grabbed 2.x and bought it to support the developer -- fully aware that 2 really needs to catch up with its ver 1.x self.

2.2 still cannot do successful matchups of manually entered/ downloaded transactions. 2.3 maybe?

Meanwhile, 1x is my ride, with an occasional update check on 2.x
