Quicken 2002 Deluxe Adds Mac OS X Compatibility

Send Article to a Friend

Quicken 2002 Deluxe Adds Mac OS X Compatibility -- Intuit has begun shipping Quicken 2002 Deluxe for Macintosh, adding Mac OS X compatibility and a number of online features for managing your finances. Considering that Intuit at one point scrapped the product entirely, it's encouraging to see a new version that runs natively under Mac OS X as well as Mac OS 9. Intuit's efforts to capitalize on online banking are apparent in Quicken 2002, which offers the capability to download brokerage transactions, update all online accounts in one step, and reconcile accounts with transactions downloaded from the bank. To help you navigate the rough waters of the stock market, you can also run a number of "what-if" scenarios for estimating and optimizing capital gains. Quicken 2002 Deluxe for Macintosh costs $60, which includes a $20 mail-in rebate for previous Quicken users. [JLC]
