Any suggestions for a "proper" bookkeeping app for personal finances?

I'd like to add bookkeeping to my modest list of skills. In the future I'm planning to be struck with an ingenious business idea, so to prepare for this I'd like to learn how small businesses manage their finances. A totally intended side-effect of my bookkeeper plan is that I sort out my own finances and get my savings in order.
I'm happy put some time in studying (and would be interested to hear about any globally recognised bookkeeping certification) but what I'm really looking for is a program that allows me to apply basic bookkeeping practice to my personal finances.
Ideally, this would be an iphone app. Obviously there are loads of money management type apps already available, but I want one that applies bookkeeping standards with the aim of giving me practical experience of bookkeeping standards in business.
