New Version of Quicken Released


Intuit this week announced the availability of Quicken Deluxe ’98 and Quicken Basic ’98 for Macintosh and Windows. The press release notes few features but does give pricing: the Deluxe version costs $59.98 and comes with a coupon worth $20 to those who upgrade. The Basic version costs $39.95 and comes with a $10 coupon for upgraders. Although we are pleased that Intuit continues to release Macintosh versions, we hope that in future years the company will also release Macintosh versions of products such as QuickBooks and Quicken Home & Business. Additionally, it seems that Mac Quicken users won’t have access to some Internet communications capabilities of the Windows versions; an Intuit sales rep provided contradictory information when queried, and we hope to post more information soon. An older press release details new features, including easier account reconciliation and QuickEntry, a separate component of Quicken Deluxe, that streamlines entering routine daily expenses.
