Until today, Quicken Essentials for Mac users who wanted to switch to iBank 4 personal finance software could not get their data out of QEM and into iBank. This was not an iBank issue, but was because Quicken Essentials doesn't store data in a standard way as most other (probably all other) personal finance software does.
iBank 4.7 just announced a new set-up assistant feature that imports Quicken Essentials account data, so transitioning over is now possible and easy to do. iBank 4, my favorite pick for Mac personal finance software, also imports data from Microsoft Money and other Windows and Mac financial software.
Another announcement is that iBank 4.7 has added Direct Connect support for Vanguard investment accounts to make it a little easier to download those transactions. If Direct Connect doesn't work between a financial institution and iBank, there's a nifty built in web browser that makes importing transactions easier than exporting/downloading and then importing them.
iBank also has iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch mobile apps.
