Alternative to Quicken

Well Intuit has progressively been making it harder for long-term, loyal users of Quicken(~12yrs for me)to stick with them.  They show little regard for their users with useless changes and new looks with new releases. It seems to me that those at Intuit development don't use the product. And the Quicken quotes and Quicken Online new release debacle seems to be the last straw for us all.  Problem is MS Money is a worse bet, so where do we all turn?Check out Moneydance.  It has been getting excellent reviews.  Based on my research so far, I am going to give it a try.  They offer a free download for trial with easy licensed version turn-on.  I am going to run them in parallel for a while and see how good it is.Intuit, I think we all hate being forced to criticize and abandon you, but you have left us with no choice other than to continue to live with a deteriorting product quality.

Unfortunately I would have to agree. I have been using Quicken for over 10 years and no matter how loyal users want to be it is just impossible to use a product that simply does not work. Amazing to see a good name turn into a shoddy fly by night operation. Must be the outcome of greed and outsourcing.We need to support software that cares about IMPROVING it's product.

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
