Once we release an update to MoneyWiz, we encourage everyone to install it as soon as possible to take advantage of the new improvements, fixes and features. This is especially important with special updates that involve data migration. In case of such updates, you need to update MoneyWiz on all devices in order to avoid “You are using a newer version of MoneyWiz…” error.

The guide below provides instructions on how to install the latest update of MoneyWiz on your device.

Which version of MoneyWiz for Mac do I have now?

Your version of MoneyWiz for Mac might have been updated automatically or perhaps you forgot that you updated already. Therefore it might be worthwhile to check what version you have installed now.

Updating MoneyWiz from Mac App Store

Please launch Mac App Store on your Mac (it can be launched by clicking on the Apple logo in the top left corner of the screen -> App Store) then head to Updates tab. Install all MoneyWiz updates you see there.

If you don’t see any updates, please try these in order:

  • launch Mac App Store and search for MoneyWiz, then access the version you have installed. Usually within a second you'll see the button change from "Open" to "Update". It's currently the most common issue preventing updates and it's further explained in the animation below,
  • make sure that you are signed in to your Apple ID,
  • reboot your Mac,
  • check for updates again in an hour or two.

Apple is responsible for delivering the updates to you through the Mac App Store as Mac App Store is their creation, however we found that the above usually helps resolving any issues you might encounter.

Updating MoneyWiz for iOS

Please launch App Store.app on your iOS device and head to Updates tab (iOS 12 and older) or tap on your avatar in the top-right and check available updates for your profile (iOS 13 and newer). Install all MoneyWiz updates you see there.

If you were a TestFlight beta tester, you'll need to remove the beta version you have and install the official release again if you want to switch back to stable channel.

Updating MoneyWiz from our website

Please launch MoneyWiz on your Mac, enter your 4-digit PIN code if required then click on MoneyWiz menubar item in the top left of the screen (near Apple logo) then click “Check for Updates”.

If you don’t see this item in that menu it means you did not download MoneyWiz from our website but either from Mac App Store or Setapp.

Please launch the Google Play Store app on your Android device and head to Updates tab. Install all MoneyWiz updates you see there.
