Banktivity 5.6.5 (formerly iBank)
IGG Software has issued a minor maintenance update to its iBank personal finance app, but the big news is that the app has been renamed to Banktivity. In addition to the Mac app, the iOS versions of iBank have also been renamed — Banktivity for iPhone and Banktivity for iPad. Based on comments to this IGG blog post announcing the name change, many iBank users were surprised by the name change, particularly when iBank seemed to vanish from their Macs after getting updated to version 5.6.5.
Retaining the version numbering of iBank, Banktivity 5.6.5 fixes a bug that sometimes displayed Move Shares transaction share values as dates, resolves a number of crashes (including when dragging a budget row and when hiding/showing accounts in account manager), and fixes a bug with the scheduled transaction reminder setting reverting from 0 to 7 days when syncing between Macs. ($59.99 new from IGG Software and the Mac App Store, free update, 39.3 MB, release notes, 10.9+)
Probably did it so they can release a Windows version. Even if their rationale is as they stated in their blog, it is a very stupid name. Since Intuit is shopping around so they can unload Quicken, why didn't Igg Software just buy Quicken?
I agree as others have stated, that the new name, "Banktivity", does not convey any degree of maturity, professionalism or confidence in the product. I also agree that this was probably done to allow for the eventual move to a Windows/Android version. I can imagine the group brainstorming about renaming iBank, and this probably sounded really good after about 4 hrs or so.
