Intuit has begun offering its entry-level financial management software Quicken Essentials for Mac on the Mac App Store. This is the standard edition of Essentials that has been on sale for quite a while, not a new version -- something Intuit is quick to point out in the description for the software. It's merely a new distribution point.

Quicken Essentials for Mac, a basic starter edition, helps you manage all of your personal finance in one place, so you can see where you’re spending and where you can save. Quicken automatically categorizes your financial transactions, stay on top of bills and helps you set goals so you can save more.

**For Quicken Essentials for Mac users: Please note, this is not a new release of Quicken Essentials for Mac. **

Quicken Essentials does work under OS X Lion, but it is a far cry from Quicken for Mac 2007, which was the last fully-featured version of Quicken released for the Mac platform. Intuit promised last month that a Lion-compatible version of Quicken 2007 would be available for customers by "early spring."

Quicken Essentials for Mac is available for $49.99 on the Mac App Store. [Direct Link]

Thanks Ahan!

Intuit is Apple's Adobe of financial software. Both companies treat Mac users like fools.

Just use Mint.com or iBank it's not worth waiting for a company that can't keep it's products up to date. 2007 was 5 years ago and they haven't updated since. They obviously don't care about their customers.

"Entry level" != "feature parity".

William V. Campbell is an embarrassment to the Apple board of directors.

I'll chime in as well as to Quicken Essentials being too basic. I've been using Quicken for Windows under Parallels on a server system (so my wife and I can access the program from multiple systems). Used Microsoft Money before that until they left the market. Looked at other applications on the Mac -- none come close to Quicken (or the former Money), unfortunately.

Intuit can pound sand. They've crapped on Mac users for years. I'm done with them.
