    Thumbs up Ascendo Money vs. SplashMoney for Personal Finance?

    Advertisement



    Which is better and why? I have both actually and I am just trying to decide which is more user friendly. So far I have to say I'm leaning towards Ascendo Money because you can transfer money between accounts and it seems a bit quicker, etc.

    What do you guys think? Thanks!

    I've used Ascendo software for quite some time now. I like their user interfaces, and how they are fairly straight forward.

    From you comments, sounds like you've already picked the horse you have in this race! Don't let anyone change your mind.

    While Ascendo Money can transfer between accounts, so can SplashMoney. In fact, SplashMoney can save you the extra step of setting a transfer, and even doing a transfer between say a checking and savings account while you are setting up a category split (Ascendo cannot).

    Also, if connecting to your bank online is an option you want, have to stick it with SplashMoney as well.

    How do you transfer from a savings to checking then because I can't seem to do it.

    Yes I always use Opera Mini to connect to my banks website. Is there a faster way to do this in Splash Money or something?

    Although I'm not familiar with Splash Money, I believe the Ascendo Money (v3.1.2) is a very user-friendly and intuitive software program. I've demo'd the older version in the past and did not like it but when I recently tried the new version, the desktop interface and BB interface worked just fine. Didn't even need the manual.

    To transfer from one account to another, you just need to select 'transfer' from the 'account' menu at the top. For me, its a one step process even though its actually two transactions going on.

    To transfer money from a Savings to Checking account using Ascendo Money for BlackBerry v3.1.6;
    - Select Transfer from the Accounts screen menu.
    - Enter the Amount
    - Select Savings as the Source Account
    - Select Checking as the Destination Account.
    When you click on the OK button, Ascendo Money will create a withdrawal from the source account and a deposit in the destination account for the amount you specified.

    Access to Online Bank Account Information

    In Version 3.1.4 of the Ascendo Money Desktop, we have added support for accessing information directly from online bank accounts using OFX, an industry standard, secure protocol. To access your account, you will need the same login name and password as you use to login through a web browser.

    We are looking for beta testers for this feature. If you are interested, please email me at info[AT]ascendo-inc[DOT]com.
