"Very incomplete, NOT free"

September 07, 2009  |  By best_edward

 |  Version: QuickBooks Simple Start Free Edition 2009

Pros

Nice interface like QuickBooks usually provides, decent for the very beginner.

Cons

Not really free if you want to do ANYTHING at all.

Summary

This is more of a "preview" package showing what's available in their real (PAY) package. I will keep looking for a good free acctg system!!!

"Definitely NOT Free"

August 14, 2009  |  By gerald_c

 |  Version: QuickBooks Simple Start Free Edition 2009

Pros

Nice clean interface, especially if you're an existing QB user

Cons

If you want something truly without cost, KEEP looking. Substantial limitations that you have to upgrade (see $$$) for. Truly a disappointment.

Summary

A sneaky program to get your money, which I resent. Will work only for the most basic of functions and even then you'll be paying if your business ever expends.

"Product never worked well, back to MS Money"

June 04, 2009  |  By drew489

 |  Version: QuickBooks Simple Start Free Edition 2009

Pros

None that I can think of at this time.

Cons

Doesn't sync well or at all, interface is very confusing. Updates don't work. It's just a very very messy and non-intuitive interface.

Summary

Please don't buy this, trust me. I'm a smart guy, I can figure out software and I can deal with nuances but this software is horrid. I do not honestly know why anyone would use it.

The interface is a garbled mess. It needs to be cleaned and simplified.

"Too limited to be useful."

April 14, 2009  |  By WelcomedRain

 |  Version: QuickBooks Simple Start Free Edition 2009

Pros

Nice looking and fairly intuitive; more so than other accounting applications I've used.

Cons

The restrictions of this program really makes it unusable in any practical way. You cannot enter bills for future payments. You are forced to enter payments only. You are also limited to 20 customers.

Summary

I was just looking for a really simple and basic accounting package to handle a few sales and expenses for a side business. This can't even manage that because of its limitations. This is just another way to float a trail software. Although it doesn't limit you on time, it limits you in too many ways to make it practical for use. It would be easier to just use an excel spread sheet if the business is small.
