Quicken Mac 2007 released
Intuit today released Quicken Mac 2007, introducing comprehensive paycheck management, 401(k) investment management, and a QuickEntry dashboard widget. The software's 401(k) feature allows users to download and track accounts, investments, share holdings, and daily prices from within Quicken. Users can also download, track, and verify the accuracy of information contained in paychecks via an easy-to-use interface. The QuickEntry widget enables Mac users to enter details of expenses without running the application. Quicken Mac 2007 is available for $70, and requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.
Managing daily finances
Quicken Mac 2007 features payment scheduling and payment of recurring items; reminders for irregular payments such as insurance premiums and estimated quarterly tax payments; a big picture view of overall finances; the ability to find answers to archival or forward-looking questions; and .Mac backup functionality.
"With the signature ease of use and unique style of the Macintosh, Quicken Mac 2007 is the personal finance software package that will accommodate your needs from next payday until you begin drawing down funds from your 401(k) plan," said Glenn Tom, director and offering leader for Quicken consumer products. "Managing personal finances has never been easier for Macintosh owners."
