Important Notice For Current MoneyCoach Mac Users

As you all know, we are on a constant quest to simplify and make your experience more delightful. One of this steps is the one happening today!

We are moving MoneyCoach on the Mac to a new space. Well, not a new one. It is actually the space where MoneyCoach for iOS, iPadOS, and watchOS resides. To put it shortly, we are unifying MoneyCoach under one roof.

Why now?

  • Universal Purchases
    One app, one subscription. No more having a hard time restoring purchases…
  • Same day release on all platforms
    We had a challenging time with the App Store review process since there were "2 separate apps" to be reviewed, which were independent.
    Now, with only one app for all platforms, the review team will release it at the same time
  • No need to maintain 2 separate product pages on the App Store

What does this mean for me?

  • The current MoneyCoach for Mac will be renamed to MoneyCoach Legacy and will feature a new app icon with a black L on the top right side
  • MoneyCoach Legacy will stop receiving updates!
  • You can still use MoneyCoach Legacy normally
  • You have to download the new MoneyCoach from the Mac App Store again
  • The new MoneyCoach will receive constant updates, just like the iOS app does
  • After downloading the new MoneyCoach, in some cases, you will have to do a migration

How To Migrate from Legacy to New

  • Quit the MoneyCoach Legacy app
  • Download the new MoneyCoach Mac app via the link - Download Now
  • Open the app
  • Skip Onboarding by clicking the "Already Completed?" button

On most cases, you would have the iPhone or iPad app installed (or both). In that case, you will probably have "Data Sync" on.

Option 1: Data Sync Off (iCloud Sync On)

  • Go to Settings >> Data
  • Turn on the "Data Sync" switch
  • Wait for the sync to complete
  • Double-check if everything was synced
  • Now you can go back and delete the old MoneyCoach Legacy app

Option 2: Data Sync Off (Manual Backup / Restore)

  • Open the old MoneyCoach Legacy app

  • Go to Settings >> Data

  • Click "Backup"

  • Save the backup file on a folder

  • Open the new MoneyCoach app

  • Go to Settings >> Data

  • Click "Restore"

  • Select the backup file you want to restore

  • Wait for the restore process to finish

  • Double-check if everything was restored successfully

  • Now you can go back and delete the old MoneyCoach Legacy app


  • "I installed the new app and the subscriptions are not syncing"
  • "I have another issue"
    • Contact support from within the app
