    Pros

    Is not free is a trap, a catch to attract customer, is only a trial
    they are a bunch of cheaters starting with CNET, this is how they sells their products,don't fall in this trap.Then CNET get a big profit. I see these types of baits all over the Internet but I never fall to these baits

    Cons

    0000000000

    Summary

    Nothing but a bait

    "Simple, limited, but does what I need."

    May 13, 2012   |   By jplfly

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Intuitive interface makes it easy to set up and run if you have even limited accounting skills. It is really a super check register and more. Great bang for $0. And will prepare you for the next step as your company grows.

    Cons

    Don't try to run your entire manufacturing or distribution business with the free edition. Pony up a few bucks to go for the next level. A sole proprietor service company will find all you need with Free edition, but if you are an LLC or especially a Corporation (sub s or c) that has inventory, heavy billing, and lots of customers will be better off with the paid edition.

    "Is it really worth it?"

    April 26, 2012   |   By alo91

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Free software good for beginners.

    Cons

    Software took too long to download. Don't think it's worth the wait after reading some of the reviews while downloading it.

    "Disappointed in intuit"

    April 12, 2012   |   By beemmeer

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Quickbooks has a lot of nice features that I like. Easy to set up, create invoices, ETC.

    Cons

    Very disappointed that Intuit doesn't created the desktop version in simple start anymore. Also they took away the Estimates unless you pay more.
    Also what about importing the old data from older versions of quickbook?

    Summary

    They should not have taken away the estimate option and they really messed up when they took away the desktop version of simple start. Sorry, Intuit, you lost a costumer with me. I went back to Excel spreedsheet and am looking for free versions of accounting software.

    ""Nice product, great for small business"

    August 08, 2011   |   By jkmcelroy

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    As always intuit has really nice features and is simple to use.

    Cons

    I'm not a big fan of software I have to download to my PC. Web Based Saas is going to be the future for software that does billing, accounting, invoicing etc.

    Summary

    If you're looking for Windows base software that is very basic and easy to use I suggest this product. If your looking for a free web based solution to do the same things checkout GratisLite by Agilx.
