RIP yodlee moneycenter, where should I migrate to?
« on: September 16, 2017, 03:54:13 PM »
I used yodlee moneycenter to oversee/manage our finances for over a decade -- started when it was offered as a tool by our credit union, and then kept using it even after they stopped supporting directly.   yodlee was recently acquired by evestnet, and they changed the format. I HATE THE NEW FORMAT WITH A PASSION!!!!!   It is incredibly unfriendly/unintuitive, full of glitches, and ugly besides.   

So, I'm looking for a new money management system.   Mint is free, but I don't like the fact that they are mining your data/helping advertisers find you with it.   I get that enough with Facebook -- don't want it even more in my face.    I know lots of people here use YNAB, but not sure I need/want the things it focuses on (I'm mostly interested in networth and spending tracking, not necessarily budgeting).   Strongly pulled toward Tiller, since I like the spreadsheet approach, but not sure how easily I will adapt to google sheets.  I also like the fact that at least one of the Tiller founders is Mustachian (met him at Camp Mustache last year).

Does anybody use Tiller, and if so can you comment on it as a user?   Also interested in feedback on ease of use/appropriateness of Mint/YNAB for someone FIREd and already pretty dialed in on their spending.  Or other programs people are using for financial tracking.

Quicken for 20+ years.  Plenty not to like about it, but until someone comes up with something we like better....

That's funny. I'm also a 20+ year user of Quicken, but I rarely see it mentioned here. It has its problems, but I love the long history of our purchases and investments, and hope we never lose it.

Mint works well for me, it's pretty simple and intuitive. 

I used Quicken for a long time a long time ago and liked it when I used it. 

I don't currently use a budget but we'll probably use YNAB or Quicken upon retirement to keep track of things.

I would give mint or personal capital a try.  I *just* killed my yodlee account.  I always liked the old yodlee labs but after having a look at the new money center, I decided I had to walk away.  I have accounts with both mint and personal capital, but I don't use mint much and I only use personal capital to track investments/savings (no checking or daily spending out of personal capital... yet.)  I use YNAB classic and need to move off of it at some point, since it is no longer supported.   So I'll be digging into personal capital and mint in the near future, hopefully...

Yeah, but I've heard personal capital bugs you to sign up for their fee-based services, especially when they see you have a high net worth.   Not at all interested in that....

I did used to use Quicken back in the day before we moved to China -- stopped because there was no easy way to deal with our China based accounts (at least not that I could figure out at the time).  In moneycenter I could manually add an account, at least.

Kind of surprised nobody is using Tiller, given the general love of spreadsheets among the FIRE crowd.   They do have a free 30-day trial, so maybe I'll just try it out.
