Here’s a review of MYOB on Apple’s Australian store. Now it may have been a shill, but there are still the 101/111 people that “found the review useful”.
This has to be the worst software system that I have ever used, how it could be for a mac I’ll never know. Totally scatterbrained layout with infinite overlapping windows, and virtually no flow. The Human-factors interface appears nice and neat on the surface and then fails completely. The User guide is incomplete, tech support is outrageous, Tutorials must be purchased online. I feel completely used, and I’m selling my software online just as soon as I can. Even trying to register the software was a event. I didn’t buy an inexpensive small business software program to spent 4 times the amount to learn how to use it. This software may appear to be great when someone tells you what it can do, but if you cant even set it up you’ll never use it. I would avoid this software at all costs..
and another, from Amazon
I’ve used MYOB AccountEdge (version 4, release 7.50, for Macintosh) for nearly 18 months. Buying this software was one of my worst mistakes….
along with a note of warning from a otherwise happy customer:
MYOB has a great product here that has the opportunity to rule the SOHO Macintosh space. Unfortunately, their inability to provide customer support limits their growth potential.
just look at how ugly and how unintuitive this is…
Message to Xero – hurry up already…..
