Quicken 2016 for Mac 3.0.3
In November 2015, Intuit released Quicken 2016 for Mac (version 3.0) with a couple of handy new features — the capability to pay bills directly within Quicken as well as transfer funds between different accounts from within your bank. Intuit notes that bill payment is available only if you have Quicken Bill Pay (Windows) or if your bank offers Bill Pay with Quicken (Windows or Mac). Additionally, Intuit offers free phone support for Quicken 2016 (Monday through Friday from 5 AM through 5 PM PST, though online chat is available 24 hours a day).
During the festive period, Intuit released Quicken 2016 for Mac 3.0.3 with a number of fixes for the personal accounting software. The update resolves an issue where sending a Direct Connect Bill Pay payment could show an error, fixes a bug where opening a Quicken 2015 file in Quicken 2016 could show duplicate transactions in Direct Connect accounts that support Bill Pay, and rectifies a problem with new accounts that caused Quicken to recalculate the opening balance adjustment if transactions were added with the same date as the date on which the initial download occurred. Note that the Mac App Store edition is currently stuck at version 3.0.1.
($74.99 new, free update, release notes, 10.10+)
After the 2015 experience with Quicken in which I lost all banking data from September through November because of an "upgrade" I am most interested in whether you have suggestions for a good substitute.
A loyal Quicken user for 25 yrs, I'm done! Q2007 (16.2.3) served me well a long time, in spite of Intuit's foolish abandonment of Macs. But I feared upgrading to El Capitan—couldn't find clear answers to my compatibility concerns on Q forums or FAQs. I did get enough partial answers to make me fear an El Capitan upgrade might result in disaster. But I took a chance, and sure enough, disaster ensued—e.g., downloaded transactions from VISA descended into chaos—100s of duplicate transactions appeared, and scores more DISappeared. I had hopes for Q2016, but I'm not paying for an upgrade that sounds iffy and inferior to Q2007. In Oct, I spent 30 minutes on hold at Intuit so I could talk to a human. I finally got a nice person who gave me an honest answer to my question: "Are there Q2016 compatibility issues with El Capitan?" Answer: "Probably." TidBITS' great financial app reviews led me to iBank5. There's a steep learning curve, and it's no Q2007, but at least there's no more chaos.
FWIW, I'm using Quicken 2007 on El Capitan with no issues. I download checking transactions from Wells Fargo, credit card from Chase, and multiple investment accounts from TD Ameritrade. I have many, many years of data. I know that doesn't help you, but I wanted to offer this up for other readers.
Ditto here though I'm still on ML. However, if you need to use a mobile app, then I suggest looking at iCompta.
BTW, there are two different Quicken for Mac 2007 applications: Quicken for Mac 2007 for PPC machines (and users of Rosetta) and Quicken for Mac 2007 Lion Compatible for Intel machines with Mac OS 10.7 through the current version of 10.11.
I ordered this and was charge $54.99 and could not get it to credit me the $49 price. Then I get it and discover they still did not fix the update problem. It wants to update the software, but it fails EVERY TIME on my iMac 10.11.2 install. Same as the prior crap. This app has gotten only worse as the decades roll on. :(
Intuit has been trying to unload Quicken for months. They've had no luck so far. Perhaps if they find a new owner, and that new owner actually cares to make the product solid, I'll buy. http://www.cnbc.com/2015/08/21/intuit-to-sell-its-quicken-personal-finance-program.html
Quicken 2007 for Mac has much better interface than the cheapo looking successors and 2007 meets my needs for a simple bank account & checkbook manager. That's all I need and I will not "update" until 2007 "breaks." Give us basic users what we need and no more, Intuit.
Have been a Quicken user for years (10+). Never had a problem with Quicken 2007 and the previous Rosetta version. I have tested all other Quicken Mac versions: Total failures.
Believe that Quicken has lost the original programmers. A sad story....Regards to all
