App missing online banking, cross-compatibility
MacNN has reviewed QuickBooks 2010, the latest Mac edition of Intuit's Windows-based accounting software. A variety of upgrades have been made, including a New Company Setup Assistant, processing for debit and credit card payments, and sync with Address Book. Some improvement areas include search, and better invoicing, estimates and purchase orders.
The program is commended for its additions, which include an optional time-tracking module. The suite is however said to be missing critical features, like online banking, as well as cross-platform file compatibility. It is in fact described as a "second-class citizen" compared to its Windows sibling, which has been given more attention in terms of look and functionality. Intuit is selling the Mac edition of QuickBooks for $200.
