    "This software is a joke!"

    February 26, 2010  |   By eriknokc

    Pros

    Extremely Basic

    Cons

    Not worth $70, no way to customize or turn off features

    Summary

    This is such a basic program, it should be a free web based program. It shows upcoming transactions in your register that you have not entered and there is no way to turn this feature off. You really don't know how much money you have in your bank account with your currently paid bills because of this. There is no way to customize any of the features in this software. This is the biggest joke of personal finance software ever! Quicken should pull it off the shelf, finish making this program and then put a complete product on the market. I would even settle for going back to Microsoft Money, if it was still made.
