Debut version on Mac App Store
Mike Yenco has updated his household finance program Finance to version 7.0, bringing it to the Mac App Store and making a number of improvement, including changes in repeating transactions and data entry, better search speed, a new advanced search, better list navigation with mouse, trackpad and arrow key support and other changes. As part of the move to the Mac App Store, the price of Finance has also been lowered.
Previously, the program -- which allows users to create budgets, track bank accounts and credit cards, set up automatic transactions and more -- sold for $40, but Yenco says the greater exposure of the Mac App Store and other advantages (like not having to generate or deal with registration codes) allows him to sell the program at a new permanent price of $15.
Finance v7 now requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher and works with Intel Macs only. Due to the new low price, there is no upgrade pricing available for previous users.
