Intuit says the new version of Quicken carries over the features from previous versions and introduces new capabilities as well.
This includes the ability to view and manage financial statements from “14,500 different banks, credit cards, loan and investment accounts” to assist with tracking money spent as well as creating and managing budgets and scheduling bill pay. Below you can see what’s new in the latest version of Quicken for Mac.
Quicken 2015 for Mac lets users:
Make smart financial decisions on the go: The free mobile companion app syncs customer data across desktop and mobile devices, including iPhone, iPad and Android. Quicken users can check account balances, transactions and household budgets anywhere at any time, and snap a photo to store receipts to keep track of important purchases.
Easily track portfolios and plan for taxes: Detailed investment tracking allows users to view and track portfolio value, investment transactions, cost basis, unrealized and realized gains, and create Schedule D tax reports for capital gains. The product simplifies tax time by tracking deductions and creating tax reports.
View and understand finances in a flash: A refreshed interface optimized for OS X makes it easy for users to see where they stand with their finances.
As for product commitment (you probably recall Intuit’s history with keeping Quicken up-to-date with the Mac’s move from Intel and OS X Lion’s support drop for Rosetta), Intuit’s Consumer Ecosystem Group SVP and general manager Barry Saik said in a press release:
“With Quicken 2015 for Mac, we’re reaffirming our commitment to serving our loyal Apple customers and delivering the dependable, easy-to-use solutions they’ve come to expect.”
In addition to the those features, Intuit says it expects to release new features and capabilities regularly through the year to continue making Quicken a better product.
For now, Quicken users can pick up the new version of Intuit’s finance software digitally from the Mac App Store or Amazon for $74.99, and the company says a boxed version will be available in retail stores later this fall starting in October. As for the mobile Quicken users, those can be downloaded for free from the App Store on iOS and Play Store on Android.
