So you can have a high level user experience

It's our desire that Banana Accounting offers a high level user experience to our Mac clients and that Banana remains compatible with the newest versions of the Operational System and the latest improvements introduced by Apple. 
In the future, we also wish to offer an IOS version, so that people can access their accounting data even from their Ipad.
Banana Accounting has very affordable prices. Maintaining a high level and further developing Banana Accounting for a Mac environment is very challenging. This is the reason why the price of the Mac version is slightly higher than the one of the Windows version.
We are sorry about this price difference, but we believe that our users sustain our pricing policy through which we can offer a very useful product of the highest level.
