Intuit ships Quicken Mac 2007

updated 01:05 pm EDT, Tue August 1, 2006

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."

    What's missing?

    Still waiting for these guys to achieve 100% feature parity between the Mac and Windows versions. Have they managed that yet?

    re: what's missing

    Nope - apparently there is still no support for stock options in the mac version - its been there since forever in the windows version.

    What's missing?

    What? Are you kidding? Feature parity? The only way feature parity will be gained is when 10.5 is released with that whole Parrallels-like functionality, and Intuit finally dumps Quicken for mac and just tells you to get the windows version. They are, to say the least, one sucky Mac software company. I'm sure if someone had the tenacity to find the "what's new" lists for both the windows and mac versions, they'd also find that a lot more new stuff was added to the windows version as well. (h***, I remember one version of Quicken added such hot stuff as .Mac backup and iCal integration, and maybe one new 'financial' feature).

    It must be so nice not to have any competition.

    Multiple currencies

    I agree 100% feature parity between Mac and Windows versions would be nice, I'd be happy for now if they'd just add the support for multiple currencies to the Mac version.

    Checkout iBank

    This is a plug, but checkout iBank (universal binary, multiple currencies, cocoa, etc.), www.iggsoftware.com/ibank/

    mult. curr. NOT in Q2007

    I've heard back from Quicken support - still no proper multiple currency support. They asked me to submit it as a feature request -- seems they've responded the same way the last three years when I've asked the same question.

    I'll be checking out iBank.

    No excuses, but . . .

    For some features in the Windows' version it is not possible for Intuit to provide a Mac version. This is because Quicken in many ways relies on the cooperation of third party financial institutions which are not Mac friendly.

    Is this a universal binar

    The answer is a BIG no.

    "Thank you for contacting Quicken Customer Care. What I understand is that you want to know whether Quicken 2007 supports Universal Binary. Intuit has started beta testing Quicken 2007, code-named MindTheGap, but like previous upgrades to the financial management software the new version will deliver more marginal improvements than its version number might imply. Quicken 2007 will remain a PowerPC-only application, although it will run on Intel-based systems under Rosetta. Intuit is instead said to be targeting the 2008 version for transition to a universal binary. Among the more notable improvements the new version will pack are increased support for 401(k) accounts and regular paycheck tracking.
