Quicken 2016 for Mac 3.5.1
Quicken Inc. has released Quicken 2016 for Mac 3.5.1 with an improved Reconcile feature, performance improvements in the Portfolio View, and dramatic file size reduction for those with lots of historical data. The update also changes the database structure to support future development. Once you open your database file in version 3.5.1, you won’t be able to use it in an earlier version, but the update automatically saves a backup file in the old database format that’s compatible with version 3.4.
The new Reconcile feature emulates the functionality found in Quicken for Windows and Quicken 2007 by calculating the beginning balance based on all uncleared transactions, which should result in a more accurate reconcile experience. The update also makes several improvements to 12-month budgets, fixes issues with the Portfolio View (including speed bumps and a display change that shows the number of shares up to six decimal places), and adds the capability to create Quick Category and Tag reports by right-clicking. ($74.99 new, free update, release notes, 10.10+)
Does it have all the features of Quicken 2007 for Mac? What does one lose by upgrading from 2007 to 2016 v3.5.1?
Not yet but they're gradually getting there. Good to see that some fresh life is being breathed into Quicken.
It looks like now that Intuit doesn't own Quicken they're making some good progress on the Mac version. Now that they have bill pay it might be time to take the plunge. Although the lack of an investment performance report gives me pause.
I am looking for a good application for portfolio management in different currencies. I recently bought Investoscope, but I am not satisfied, as it is, at least at present, lacking basic management functions. Quicken for Mac is as yet unavailable in Europe and I read some rather bad reviews. Are there any other possibilities?
Oh man, I HOPE devoutly you're correct! I maintain a PC laptop, a 100 GB Bootcamp partition (on my Mac Pro's drive), TWO Windows apps (Quicken and Quick Books 2016) and devote maddening hours to this ridiculous setup. If only tge new owner of Intuit would bring the Mac versions up to speed, I might save A WEEK OUT OF EVERY YEAR --what a great vacation!
