    Amen to that.

     

    After many, many years with Quicken, I switched to iBank at the end of last year (2011) - see earlier posts.

     

    Best move I have made in a long time.

     

    It's a great program with a few glitches.

     

    But, unlike Quicken, they seem committed to working out the Mac wrinkles.

     

    The above posts raise the hairs on the back of my neck...sounds like Quicken once again with the limited Mac support..always reluctant!

     

    I do love iBank!

    I would agree that if iBank pleases you, stay with it but this change is as simple as anything I've done. It works very well also. I have no idea how a transfer of data from iBank back to Quicken would work. I tried iBank for a while keeping Quicken also working at the same time. I hated iBank and stopped using it, so I guess it's each his own.

    I agree and even at only 15 dollars it is time to put Intuit to rest the way they done to us on the Mac with Quickbooks and Quicken

    iBank is just a diferent interface so it took a bit to get used to but it serves all of my needs.

    Switching back to quicken would require iBank: File > Export > to QIF and use quicken to import the QIF into a blank file.

     

    You would then have to validate that the transfer process didn't screw up the data as badly as the Quicken to iBank process screwed it up.  My transfer to iBank dealt very poorly with split transaactions involving transfers from my checking to 401k.

    Thanks for posting. I'm kindof upset they didn't send an email to registered users to let them know it was available.

     

    Has anyone tried switching back to this version after changing to Quicken Essentials? I already upgraded to QEM on my Mac when I switched to Lion, now I'm wondering if this upgrade will recognize QEM files.

    Nevermind, I found the answer- it's right on their FAQ page (guess I haven't had enought coffee yet this morning).

    I was not able to open the new Lion-compatible Quicken file in Snow Leopard, so I went ahead an upgraded to Lion.  Unfortunately my file still did not opent (spinning beach ball).  I spent several hours with Quicken technical support and they concluded that although my file worked fine in the previous Quicken for Mac 2007 version, it had somehow gotten corrupted.  I had to send technical support my data file, they fixed it in a few minutes and sent it back.

     

    Now everything is working.  I did have to update historical security prices, as no quotes carried over with the migration.  A long arduous process and no going back now, but I finally have the new OS and can use iCloud.

    What method did you use to contact them?  I've been emailing them because the Lion version crashes right after I enter my data file password, but they keep asking me for quicken connect log files and things, they think I"m having trouble downloading from banks or something.  Rediculous, like a human isn't even reading my emails.

    Go to Quicken support http://quicken.intuit.com/support/ and click blue "Contact Us" box and fill in the requesed information.  You'll get a case number sent to your email that you need to use when you call them.

    Has anyone successfully used the Quicken for Mac 2007 online bank bill pay after updating to the Lion version?

     

    I have found no reference to this service, and it is critically important to me.  No mention on the Intuit web site or in the Intuit forum.

     

    Also, I have not found any other of the current consumer finance programs that supports this.  Has anyone been successful with it?

     

    Thanks!

    William,

     

    I too find the bill pay from within Quicken to be of primary value--in fact, it's the main reason I never switched programs. That, and the imprcise conversion of data that streches back into the 1980's. iBank certainly doesn't, and my favorite of the also-rans, SEE Finance didn't and developers said it was not a priority.

     

    I did successfuly use the bill pay feature from within Quicken after conversion.

    Thanks for your reply, Frank.  I feel encouraged enough to cautiously proceed with the update. 

     

    But I will save a copy of my original data file. 

     

    I don't trust this company. 

     

    They have demonstrated a remarkable callousness toward the Mac customer for some years now, and they clearly have not had their customers' interests at heart. 

     

    I looked at Mac Essentials when it came out, and was appalled at what a useless piece of software it was, and how much of a downgrade from Quicken for Mac 2007. 

     

    The online bill pay kept me from moving to any other program, as there were none which provided the bill pay functionality as effectively as Quicken for Mac 2007.  I have even maintained an old 12" PowerBook G4 running OSX 10.5, kept for the exclusive purpose of running Quicken for Mac 2007, which it does very effectively.  I hope that I can now finally retire this antique notebook.

     

    Best,

     

    Bill

    I upgraded to the "new" Lion-compatible Quicken 2007 today (for the past nine months I'd been running Quicken 2007 in a virtual machine under Parallels Desktop.)  I think Intuit is a lousy company that has treated users poorly for many, many years, but I was not able to find another financial package that met all of my needs.

     

    Since moving to the Lion version of Q-2007, I am unable to transmit bill payments to Quicken Bill Pay.  I get a message stating that the server is unavailable or my account information is incorrect.  Since the account information isn't wrong, and I have no reason to think the server isn't up, I think this feature may be broken.

     

    ANyone else having this problem?
