Most Helpful Positive User Review
A reviewer from Software Advice said that he hasn’t used a paper check register in many years because he’s been managing all his finances on Quicken. He said Quicken makes it easy to track both his business and personal finances and to upload and download transactions to and from his bank. He also shared that even though he doesn’t use Quicken’s investment-tracking features, he’s played with them in the past and they work well.
Most Helpful Negative User Review
A reviewer from Software Advice didn’t like the need to update yearly and the cost that comes with it. He feels that updates should be free or perhaps major changes can come at an increase in cost if the user wants to implement those changes. He said updating annually is required for him to be able to continue using the software with no issues. He claims that if he misses a few updates, he runs the risk of it not being able to access his data anymore.
