iFinance 3.0 beta ships
Synium Software has released a public beta of its new personal finance software, iFinance 3.0. The third edition features interactive 3D charts, a new workflow, a customizable user interface and a budgeting feature. The app manages a user's entire cash flow, and breaks expenses out into categories. The 3D charts give users a quick way of tracking spending and investment patterns, and can be customized to user preference. Stocks, quotes and portfolio performance are tracked in the program, which also generates detailed information about profits and losses.
Budgeting in iFinance 3.0 lays out expenses and resources, which helps to manage projects or plan for a unique event. The budgeting tool further gives warnings about exceeding limits, and tracks day-to-day expenditures in real-time.
iFinance 3.0 is $20 during its public beta phase, and licenses will continue into the final version. Mac OS X 10.5 or better is required, along with an Internet connection for stock price and exchange rate retrieval.
