Tuni your needs are very basic. The interface is different, but iBank can do what you want. The biggest knock on iBank is reports. If you don't need investment tracking, investment reports are obviously not important.

Frankly is sounds to me like you want to have a bank or credit card register.

My strong suggestion is this area is download a trial copy of iBank and keep your Quicken going. Also you can try Quicken Essentials. After the trial period you undoubtedly will find one of the two new, Mac apps better. At that point you might be able to decide to go with the a new app and drop Quicken or stay with Quicken. In any case, I am saying run two systems in parallel at least for 30 days.

(Officially iBank can import data. I did not have much luck with that. But you need to ask yourself, do you really need that old data. Note - needs and wants are different things.)
