Best of both worlds - csv2ofx marries Yodlee with desktop personal finance apps


I'm starting to like GnuCash. Yodlee is great too. I'm a new user of both (started at beginning of this year), but I am already hooked, especially on Yodlee. Using these two apps together has allowed me to automate key parts of my financial management that I could never do before while also allowing me to do more sophisticated analysis. So what magic allows me to use these two apps together?

The key to upgrading my personal finance software was a free utility called csv2ofx. Without it, there is no way to get Yodlee data into GnuCash (or any other desktop personal finance app I know of).

Here is an excellent article on how to use the "addthis.com" widget with Community Server by mystyleit:

Forget your passwords

Sxipper lets you log into any website with a single click. Sxipper saves you time by keeping track of an unlimited number of usernames and passwords and it has a useful feature called personas. Sxipper is different from most password managers or form fillers in its use of artificial intelligence to figure out how to properly fill in web-based forms (with your data) that it hasn't seen before. In other words, when you visit a web page for the first time, Sxipper can often figure out where your data should go.

Here's a nice review of Sxipper:

I like the fact that it is cross platform - runs on Linux, Max and Windows.
