  • I much prefer Quicken over Inuit’s Mint, because it can handle much more complex financial scenarios and it isn’t read only. Quicken can definitely grow with you as your finances become more complex — Mint on the other hand cannot.Intuit’s Quicken 2014 still remains the gold standard of personal finance applications — locally installed or in the cloud.

  • Quicken Starter Edition is great personal finance software if you're looking for the basics. The free mobile app is convenient. Email and text alerts allow you to monitor changes so that you can quickly intervene if necessary.
    If you need to track investments, you can upgrade to Quicken Deluxe.

  • Quicken Deluxe is great for your budgeting and general finances but if you have more complex investing needs (like comparing mutual funds or tracking cost basis) then Quicken Premier will work better for you. Quicken Home & Business might suit you better if you want to track your business as well.

    We have been using Quicken for a decade and a half to track our personal finances and our business finances. Our business is managing our rental properties.andnbsp; I cannot imagine keeping track of our spending without Quicken.

    We have an account set up for each bank account, each credit card account, and each loan. We also have a “pocket money” account to track out cash spending. Over the years we have built an elaborate structure of categories and sub-categories to cover all types of personal and business spend.andnbsp; Each rental property has its own category, with identical sub-categories that correspond to the Internal Revenue Service categories for reporting rental property expenses. Adjusting dates with the plus and minus keys is usually faster than direct data entry of the full date. The values for all of the fields in the record being entered are available through drop down lists.andnbsp; If you start typing into a field the drop down list values are filtered dynamically as you type. If your typed entry has not been used before, Quicken will ask you to confirm that you are adding a new value.andnbsp; I like this, as it catches typos and prevents the adding of bad values into you saved lists.

    Connecting with banks and credit card companies is a breeze. Quicken has a password vault that securely saves your login credentials for various institutions.andnbsp; We use this feature regularly for our checking account and our credit card account. In case you are like most people who put off backing up your files, Quicken can help you deal with that bad habit. The software keeps track of your activity vis a vis your last backup.andnbsp; If a backup is due and you exit without backing up, you will get a reminder dialogue box. At that point backing up is just a click away.andnbsp; The backup will be to your hard drive, a disc, or whatever removable storage you choose.

    We have upgraded several times through the years. The process is easy.andnbsp; Your data and account/category structure move to the new version without a problem.

    Pros :

    • The accounts/categories structure in Quicken is very flexible.
    • Data entry is made easier by several features in Quicken.

    Cons :

    • There's a lot to learn about this software, but the learning curve pays off. andnbsp;

    I've been using Quicken for over ten years to track our family's personal financials and our family's various side businesses. It's easy to enter and track income, expenses, investments, loans, invoicing to clients and reporting. At year end, I drop a Quicken report into Excel to categorize and report everything for taxes. The mobile app makes it easy to record transactions as they happen instead of facing a pile of receipts at every end of the week.

    Pros :

    • I love the ability to set up the automatic entry of transactions, so I don't forget about them later. I have Quicken automatically enter recurring transactions or one-time entries 90 days in advance so I can forecast our financial position three months ahead of time.
    • This has been a great tool to avoid surprises (if I make this expenditure today, how will it affect my financial position in two months?). Automatic updates that update all my transactions from my mobile app entry and my banks make regular reconciliations a breeze.
    • It's very easy to find transactions using a universal search bar.
    • The charts make it easy to see my net worth and trends in income and expenses. In addition to tracking things with categories, you can also track with tags.
    • I’m an accountant, so I love the options.andnbsp; The system makes it easy to input new assets (like a car or house) and set up the related loans quickly and easily.
    • There’s a debt reduction planner that helps you plan for how to get out of debt.
    • The loan amortization schedules let you see the effect of adding different amounts to your payments.
    • On the business side, you can set up custom invoice templates and use those to generate new invoices that you can either print or email in pdf format.
    • You can track receivables and manage all business expenses separately.

    Cons :

    • The mobile app doesn't keep accurate running balances. Its main benefit is the ability to enter transactions quickly that sync with the PC version.
