Intuit delays Quicken for Mac until 2010

Quicken for Mac delayed

A long-delayed update for the Mac version of Quicken has been delayed yet again, says Quicken PR manager Scott Gulbransen. The software is now expected in February 2010, having originally been announced for sometime in 2008. As recently as the last Macworld Expo, the company was forecasting a 2009 launch.

The software is expected to become Quicken Financial Life, but Intuit has not yet cemented a name. It should also finally take advantage of technologies native to Mac OS X Leopard, and gain an interface more distinct from that of its flagship Windows counterpart. Other planned features include a reconcile mode to go with a new register, and a Windows-to-Mac transfer option. Pre-orders are scheduled to open at the Quicken website on October 12th of this year.

    Home & Business version?

    ...this company continues to mystify me with the lack of parallel platform development, sunset download support & baffling omissions such as accurate reporting for year end stock transactions... Yet I still sense it has potential. Moneyworks was impressive out of the box, although it serves a different target...

    Quicken alternative

    I have recently switched to Moneywell thanks to a macnn forum post. I must say after using Quicken for almost 10 years on our macs, I really love moneywell and won't go back.

    ...Quicken!

    Please explain to me why the Apple board has a guy from Intuit on it. What is he there for? To tout their Windows products and slap the face of the Mac Community?

    This is a Company that should NOT EVER be supported again by the Mac community!

    Quicken

    I don't understand Quicken. It's like Mac is a complete afterthought. They go do this weird tags thing, and try to make it look like itunes. I'm not trying to play a transaction. How hard is it to make this software for Mac? I mean so many much more complicated software suites do so well on Mac. It can't be technical.

    Moneyworks

    This program has a steep learning curve... but excellent customer support. I bought it this year and they have been quite helpful even though I used MacP&L for years (OS9).
    I too agree that Apple should dump Intuit from their board. I specifically did not update my Quicken program because the company is so aggravating. Even their customer posts SAY THIS!
    Get rid of him.

    Past Time to Dump Intuit

    Intuit is the model for how not to run a company. I've never seen a company with as strong a franchise as they once had, work so hard to marginalize their customers (ok - well, besides Microsoft).

    My Quicken for Mac-2007 is so buggy and unstable that I dare not use it any longer. Suggestions for alternatives would be much appreciated. Has anyone tried Mint?

    Leopard Technologies

    By the time they get around releasing this piece of garbage, and supposedly using Leopard technologies, Apple will have released a new OS with new technologies ..... oh oh ... back to the drawing board .... delayed until further notice :-)

    "Quick"en???

    Quicken-The Duke Nukem of financial software! I'm sure writing code for a financial program that adds and subtracts and gets on-line is really difficult!!!
