iBank 3 Public Beta
IGG Software today released iBank 3 Public Beta, a trial version of its financial management application for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. The software includes iBank for iPhone, a Web-based iPhone application that allows users to enter transactions from an iPhone on-the-go. The update powers a redesigned interface with Mac OS X Core Animation technology, and a new view allows users to 'flip' through transactions presented professionally designed category images. iBank 3 Public Beta requires Mac OS X 10.4.3 or later, and the full version will ship in February for $50.
Users can create new interactive graphs with the latest revision of iBank, and double-clicking on a pie slice flips it over to reveal detailed information. The update supports direct transaction downloads from numerous different banks using OFX, and banks that don't support OFX are accessible via an integrated Web browser.
Using Leopard's Image Kit technology, users can take pictures of receipts or other items and assign them to transactions. Additional new features include smart portfolios for managing investments, and a new loan management module for tracking loans.
