Putney, Vermont – IGG Software today announced the release of iBank 4.3, a significant update to its top-selling personal finance application. The new version delivers enhanced Lion compatibility and multiple fixes, as well as changes to accommodate sync with IGG’s forthcoming portfolio-tracking app, iBank Investor. The update is free to current users of iBank 4.
“iBank 4 is already the most full-featured finance manager available for Mac users,” says IGG president Ian Gillespie. “As we continue to fine-tune it, we can also build outward to address the things we know customers want most – like enhanced mobility.”
iBank 4.3 adds a new section to its iTunes-style Source List, from which users can configure sync settings for the popular iBank Mobile app, as well as iBank Investor, a new iOS app from IGG. Users running OS X Lion will also enjoy the addition of full-screen mode on their Macs. Version 4.3 also adds minor fixes throughout the program, as well as relevant changes to its help files and downloadable PDF manual. Some of the issues addressed create subtle improvements to imports, sorting, reporting, calculations, splits, searches and more.
The free iBank Investor app, previously announced on the IGG Developers’ Blog, will allow users to monitor all of their investments in one universal app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. iBank Investor works standalone to let users add positions and track gains and losses, or to sync with investments on a desktop copy of iBank 4 for Mac. The app has been submitted to Apple’s App Store.
Among many new features included in last year’s release of iBank 4 were faster transaction entry and dynamic editing options in an intuitive, innovative two-line register; an all-new reporting engine; envelope budgeting; a seamless set-up assistant for transferring data from Mac and PC versions of Quicken, MS Money, or other finance programs; and significant speed enhancements throughout. These improvements built upon longstanding iBank features such as direct downloads from online accounts, custom check printing, robust data export and iPhone sync.
