    The mac version of Bento is much versatile than the iPhone/ipod touch. So, i would recommend making the template first on your mac then sync it to your iPhone or ipod touch. It syncs even your contacts and other stuff. I could share my finance template if you like. ;) The Bento app also has Excel features.

    Thank you everyone for your recommendations. Synchronization is very important to me as I always enter my expenses whenever I'm on the go, then sync it when I get home.

    I'll give SplashMoney a try.

    That's a nice app. Probably follow the same when i get my iPhone. But for now, Numbers in iWork works really good. Sounds OT but i don't know if Cashbox can be synced to iPhone.

    i finally downloaded bento for iphone and is now sync'd with my mac bento 2.0.

    i agree with macjerk's suggested workflow above, although i am not sure that bento is the best way to manage finances. i actually use the budget template that comes with numbers because i usually employ multi-cell computations, conditional calculations and graphs.

    if you have bento on your mac and iphone, then it makes sense to create a money management template on bento then port it over to the iphone. it won't be as fancy as some of the money-specific apps on iphone (i use and like ixpensit), but you can customize it (the fields, yes; but the user interface, not as much) to your needs and it's "free" since you already paid for it.

    regardless, i am liking my bento iphone/mac combo, albeit not for money management use.
