Over the years I have tried numerous accounting programs and for me they all had one thing in common ....... they were over bloated with features and functions best suited for those with an interest in accounting. I have absolutely no interest in accounting and my business needs are simple 1) record income/expenses 2) support/record sales tax 3) create/print job quotes and invoices 4) create/print a year end statement for the accountant I downloaded and tried 6 or 7 Mac based accounting programs before deciding on TinyBooks Pro. Have been using TinyBooks for two years now. It doesn't offer a lot of flash and dash or come with so many features and functions that you have to keep consulting the Help file. Nor will it's user interface win first prize for innovation and glitz but TinyBooks Pro serves all my accounting needs very well in the simplest format possible. As a bonus, TinyBooks Pro developer Ken Winograd is very approachable and accommodating through email.
Pros: - simplicity in use and function - easy to set up - uses everyday terminology [income/expense/profit/loss]
Cons: - not a con for me personally but some users may prefer an updated on screen user interface
