Money, money, mon-ey. Mo-ney. (on a Mac and iPhone?)

I’m looking for a money management app for Mac that also syncs with iPhone. What do you use and why? (I’ve looked here on Metafilter and found little to nothing that’s recent).

I’m a former Quicken user. Intuit has borked Quicken for Mac making it ridiculously basic and the iPhone app only works with Quicken for Windows. I suppose I could always run Quicken Deluxe for Premier for Windows through Parallels though I’d much rather avoid that.
Mint, more often than not, has trouble connecting with my credit union. Manilla, obviously, isn’t quite robust enough to be a full on money management system. Besides, I feel a little skeeved out by the amount of data I’d be giving them.
I’ve read up on potential apps (Money (from Jumsoft), Moneywiz (Silverwiz), iBank (IGG Software). You Need a Budget (You Need a Budget). I’ve read a lot and just can’t decide as none seem to hold much over the others.
Syncing between a Mac OS X client and an iPhone app is a must. Billpay would be a nice plus (Intuit suggests those Mac users who want that should find and use Quicken 2007 which looks like hell on a modern Mac and doesn’t sync with an iPhone app - thx guys).
What do we want to track? We have a credit union with savings and checking, a mortgage at another credit union, the (almost) usual credit cards, and some retirement accounts.
What do you use and why? What do you manage with it? Any workflow suggestions?
