    What a great combination...

    Everything, works well without too much fiddling and syncs up
    accurately too... And eveything is completely configurable.

    If there is something that I don't like, it is the half the things in
    Microsoft Money requires one to be online AND also your banks
    have online, web-enabled interfaces to support it.

    I suppose it would all be so much better if one lives in the US
    (which I don't).

    The whole deal costs quiet reasonable (neglecting the cost of a
    Treo, if that were possible). USD 60 is a small price to pay to be
    on top of your finances.

    SplashMoney is an alternative...and comes with a desktop companion too.

    Hexie:

    unless youve already paid up its worth checking out

    Adarian Money

    http://www.adarian.com/

    the desktop/palm combo only costs $28

    The Palm component is the most feature-rich of all the finance progs I looked at (including: Splashmoney/USMoney/PocketQuicken) except for not being able to download info directly from your bank (will pull in data files though). I dont want that feature because where I am, the banks dont support it. Maybe its the same where you are.

    It is fantastic taking control of your finances. I had never appreciated before how addictive an activity budgeting can be.

    I'll second Ultrasoft Money recommendation. If you want to be able to sync with MS Money, it's a great solution.

    The Adarian software looks cool! I would be tempted to try this out myself if I weren't already using SplashMoney.

    The bottom line (for me) is that it's important to have a desktop companion to have all your information backed up.

    I used to use a handheld only checkbook program, and every so often all my information would get erased from a hard reset. That was always a pisser!! Now I can rest knowing my transactions are all backed up to my desktop PC.

    I think - and you guys can correct me - that dedicated PC
    based packages (Money, Quicken...) have some advanced
    functionality that the Adrian and SplashMoney combos lack,
    like support for investments and tax calculations (though Tax
    is not very useful to me )

    I use Ultrasoft Money to capture my day-to-day activities
    and then sync it with MS Money that I use for tracking
    my finances from a larger perspective.

    Dedicated PC packages also have better reporting and are far
    more customizable...

    Sometime in the future, when the world is full of 900Ws and
    9000Ws MS Money will still be supported on these devices.
    One can pay Microsoft more money and upgrade at that time
    and your financial history will be all nice and intact.

    Currently, MS Money for Windows Mobile devices is free...

    I think youre right. While I havent used the desktop version of Money or Quicken, I have heard enough to know that they have sophisticated features not found on their Palm editions. And I do know for sure that Adarian Desktop has NO other features apart from those of the Palm edition.

    I've had more problems with MS Money than Ultrasoft Money, which has generally been reliable and syncs up well. I like the fact that the categories are the same. The budget feature is a little different between the apps, but everything else is solid.

    I pretty sure SplashMoney does, but I haven't tested it.
