You can try going to the App Store and searching for "money management" to see a lot of option there.  From there, you can read through their reviews to see if one might seem like a good option. And then check with the app's publisher's website to see if they work with your bank.


You can also do a Google search for reviews of any program that seems like it might work.


There is also a version of Quicken on the App Store (does not show up with those search parameters).  It seems to have pretty bad reviews.


If you have used Quicken for Windows previously, another option would be to run Windows in a VM program (such as Parallels, VMWare Fusion, or VirtualBox).  The downside of this option is you must buy a license for Windows and the VM program (except VirtualBox is free)...and, to be prudent, some Windows anti-virus program (if I recall correctly, Parallels includes one...never used it myself as I have a multi-seat license for another program that I use for Windows).


I used to be much more religious about entry such stuff into a program.  In the distant past, I religiously used MYM (aka Managing Your Money)...a long dead program.  This was in a time where being able to download information from your bank was not yet possible.  My point is that I am not really in a position to directly recommend something anymore.


I do have an older version of iBank (now called Banktivity that should show-up in the above App Store search), but never ended up using it that much.  I just do it the "old fashioned" way (i.e. a paper check register that I then reconcile using the bank website).

Why not ask your bank(s) if there is any application they can recommend ?
