Quicken 2018 for Mac debuts, switches to subscription-only model
Quicken on Monday released the 2018 Mac edition of its personal finance software, making upgrades in areas like bill payments and investments, but primarily transitioning to a subscription-only model with Starter, Deluxe, and Premier packages.
Each tier scales up included features. The Starter package is aimed at "short-term financial goals," while Deluxe offers a more conventional featureset. Premier, finally, lets people "maximize...investments by improving portfolio performance and minimizing taxes," Quicken said. A Home, Business & Rental Property subscription is reserved for Windows users.
Each Mac subscription also comes with 5 gigabytes of Dropbox data for backups.
The new bill payment system introduces a streamlined workflow, with the ability to pay over 11,000 billers. Investment functions offer specific lot tracking and a customizable portfolio view, while loan tracking has been expanded with things like "what if" scenarios.
One-year Quicken subscriptions cost $34.99, $49.99, and $74.99, respectively. Two-year subscriptions are available only at retail, and cost $49.99, $79.99, and $119.99.
