Quicken releases 2017 updates for Mac & iOS personal finance apps

Quicken on Thursday announced the 2017 editions of its personal finance apps for Mac and iOS, which include a variety of enhancements, particularly in the core Mac suite.

The Mac app has been been updated with a new interface, said to be easier and more visually appealing without forcing users to learn new commands. Likewise Quicken has made it simpler to upgrade, whether from an older Mac release or from Windows.

New custom reports let users compare income and spending, filtered by account(s) and a specified time period. Finally, Quicken Bill Pay lets users handle bills from within the app, though enrolling costs $9.95.

The companion iOS app now offers better search functions, and lets users track their investments without returning to the desktop software. Transactions, meanwhile, can be entered manually without an internet connection.

Quicken for Mac 2017 costs $74.99, and runs on Macs with OS X 10.10 or later. The iOS app is a free download for any device running at least iOS 8, but requires the Mac or Windows desktop software.
