Financial Management Software

I am trying to find some software to help me manage my finances.

I have a Mac, so Microsoft Money isn't an option. Quicken seemed like the best idea and my uncle, who is a financial planner, recommended it, but I read the reviews on the Apple Web site and it freaks me out a bit to spend $70 on something that so many people do not find user-friendly.  Because if it isn't easy to use, intuitive, and doesn't have enough user support, I don't know that it will get used and I will have wasted money and not have gotten any closer to managing my finances.

I'm interested in something that does sync up to online accounts. Does anybody know of any or use any particular programs, on a Mac, that you find easy to use, helpful for budgeting and also sync to your accounts? Or are you a huge fan of Qucken and can reassure me?

I am not interested in using Excel, tried that and I get too distracted playing with it and also prefer something that will bring up reports and show me patterns etc without requiring intensive training and programming in the program itself.

Thanks so much for any input!
