"Not There Yet"1.5 starson by Rigmeister
Pros: Getting There
Cons: Still Needs Work
Summary: Over 4000 financial institutions and still not any that I use. There are about 5 choices for Wells Fargo and yet I can't access my Mortgage with Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. I also bank with a credit union that isn't among the 4K institutions. The interface is sloppy and the opening window doesn't fit on my 19" monitor. I guess they've built this one for the new 20+ inch flat panel widescreens.
Anyone who pays any attention to their finances doesn't need to see an IN - OUT = WHAT'S LEFT to know what's going on with their finances. The Budget section is another crutch that's been around since at least the 2004 version. An old quote comes to mind when I think "Budget". A Budget is a plan for going broke methodically.
There's a new "Rate" button that they stuck into the Checking Register that links to their new Zipingo website that is a rip-off of angieslist.com
I'll consider my $40 upgrade payment for the new Quicken 2007 Deluxe as a contribution to the development of Quicken 2008 or 2009 and hope they get that one right. Until then I'll stick with Quicken Deluxe 2004.
If you're running an earlier version of Quicken save you money and give them another year or so to get this product up to snuff or at least buy yourself a new widescreen monitor.
