How does the web app look and feel to use?

The MoneyDesktop website offers a professional design with plenty of personality. Marrying eye-catching colors like blue, red, green and orange with a very organized design helps users learn more about the application. The tracking tools and other features included in Money Desktop match the overall site design, with excellent organization and a hint of personality here and there that adds to the experience.

How does the registration process work?

Oddly, the site does not currently have any links or forms available to give users the opportunity to create a new account. A log in area is present along with an option to sign in to the “old” version of Money Desktop. It is possible that changes were made recently and the registration form will be added again later. Users who are interested in a new account can also go to the contacts page, which can be found by clicking the white “Contact” link at the top, right hand corner of the Money Desktop website. This will provide information on how to get in touch with the creators to ask questions about registration and accessibility.

What does it cost to use the application?

Despite all of the information found on MoneyDesktop, the site is missing a few key elements. The first is an account registration form and the second is any information on pricing. The site does not state that it is available for free, however no membership plan details are provided. Users should contact Money Desktop with questions regarding pricing.

Who would you recommend the application to?

MoneyDesktop has a lot of potential to help anyone who wants to handle their funds better. Unfortunately the site is missing a few important items. Without a price, it is hard to tell which specific group of users it is geared towards.
