First major Mac update of Quicken in seven years
Intuit has officially released Quicken 2015 for Mac, a long-awaited update of its personal finance software. Some improvements include a new UI design, matched to OS X Yosemite, and support for syncing data with a companion iOS app, which can also be used to snap photos of receipts to record purchases. New investment tools update quotes continuously, and track factors like cost basis and capital gains.
Some features have actually been stripped, however. These include direct bill payment, 12-month budgets, and loan amortization display. Intuit has also yet to carry over a number of features from Windows, such as more sophisticated investment functions, but Intuit is letting people vote on what to add next in a planned series of free updates.
Quicken 2015 costs $80. The iOS app is a free download, and requires iOS 7.
