    "Horrible! Embarrassing."

    March 12, 2015  |   By castelg

    Version: Quicken 2015 2.3.1

    Pros

    Getting a refund is the only possible pro with this product.

    Cons

    The fact that a company of Intuit's reputation would actually charge money for this dreck is embarrassing.

    Summary

    Wasted my time, and the time of lots of folks who were hoping for a product that worked work. I went back to using Quicken for Mac2007. How sad is that?

    "Lots of bugs - terrible customer support"

    February 21, 2015  |  

    Version: Quicken 2015 2.3.1

    Pros

    Transfer data from Quicken Essentials

    Cons

    Poor software design
    Lots of bugs
    Absolutely terrible tech support

    Summary

    I tried switching from Quicken Essentials for Mac - a program I have used and liked since it came out. I had a totally different experience with Quicken for Mac 2015. The software is poorly designed, full of bugs and the only option for tech support is via chat, which would be fine if the folks on the other end could be helpful, but becomes problematic when they aren't. I chatted with two tech support reps both of whom didn't seem to be actually reading my submissions and didn't seem to know the product. After wasting a good amount of time I ended up asking for a refund. It's understandable that new software will have glitches but the lack of access to support makes the poor functionality of the software untenable.

    "Missing expected features"

    February 16, 2015  |   By srn_mpls

    Version: Quicken 2015 2.3.1

    Pros

    Downloads from financial institutions. Easy to set up and maintain categories and accounts.

    Cons

    After using this for a couple of months, went to generate some simple reports. I couldn't even create a report that had opening and closing balances for a specified period of time. Useless.

    Summary

    A company that used to own the financial software market cannot even provide the services available in their own 10 year old software. Cannot hope to compete with other software now available at $50 to $60.

    "Doesn't work"

    February 3, 2015  |   By shakeyjake3023

    Version: Quicken 2015 2.3.1

    Pros

    Cannot really think of any.

    Cons

    After spending several day's trying to get it to work, using Live Community and Intuit Chat, this software package could not update either price or share/unit quantity correctly in any 401k, 403b, IRA or brokerage accounts. It always got something wrong.

    Summary

    Till someone makes something that works, I guess I'll go back to pen and ledger.

    "Worse program every! Don't buy"

    January 27, 2015  |   By timcpowell

    Version: Quicken 2015 2.3.1

    Pros

    I can't think of anything good to say about this program.

    Cons

    Mac2015 Quicken program does not allow you to budget a full year by month which is a standard for budgeting / planning. This program only allows you to do present month only. Clearly Quicken does not have any financial skills.

    Summary

    I would not waste your money on this product!

    "THIS PRODUCT IS TRASH"

    January 6, 2015  |   By siwein

    Version: Quicken 2015 2.2

    Pros

    It didn't cost $500.

    Cons

    Doesn't properly convert files. Cannot enter transactions without endless hourglass delays. Does not print checks. QUICKEN PROVIDES NO CUSTOMER SUPPORT - IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO GET HELP.

    Summary

    Intuit obviously cares only about one thing - taking $75 for a product that doesn't work. Don't waste your money.

    "WORST QUICKEN EVER (from a 20 year quicken mac user)"

    October 25, 2014  |   By cmdred1

    Version: Quicken 2015 2015

    Pros

    pretty interface

    Cons

    no online bill pay; when synching with bank accounts it double bookkeeps transactions, doesn't recognized memorized ones, and pre-marks them as reconciled them as they come in so to fully reconcile you have to de-mark each one. no home and business stuff, very poor reporting capabilities, on and on and on. Very sad.

    Summary

    I've used quicken for the mac since it came out in the 80's. Always loved it. This is absolutely the worst; almost unusable and lacking features of the one from the 80's.
    I really really really wish I hadn't wasted the money. We have a saying in engineering: "BETTER IS THE ENEMY OF GOOD ENOUGH". This product is neither.

    "Incomplete, don't buy"

    August 28, 2014  |   By trebuin

    Version: Quicken 2015 2015

    Pros

    Quicken brought full software to Mac

    Cons

    The software is incomplete with major bugs still present, missing features, and it doesn't display like it should. Not worth the money for the poor quality. Looks like corporate was pushing this out the door too hard.

    "DON'T BUY THIS GARBAGE"

    June 20, 2014  |   By jgerards

    Version: Quicken 2015 2010

    Pros

    None over previous versions

    Cons

    No net worth reports or customizable graphs. More timely to enter transactions. no calculators at the amount entry.

    Summary

    I have used Quicken in different versions since 1998 starting with quicken 6 for windows PC. This simp first time with Mac and quicken essentials is so bad that we are going to use our laptop (windows PC )with Quicken 2004 deluxe ( which is a free version on the intuit website)- if you like Quicken you will soon revert. I can't believe the editors would give this trashy, cheap program 3 stars.

    "Used Quicken PC for years. Quicken for Mac is useless."

    April 6, 2014  |   By aericks

    Version: Quicken 2015 2010

    Pros

    I don't know of any.

    Cons

    Not user friendly. Not able to generate reports. Total waste of money.

    Summary

    Don't buy it. Seriously, who designed this and who thought it was ready to be marketed? Hopefully we will all get a free software update that works as well, if not better than, the PC version. Very frustrating.
