The new version is a universal app that allows it to run natively on Apple's M1-powered machines for a faster and more seamless user experience, while the interface builds on Apple's new UI design signature for macOS Big Sur.

"Quicken made a name for itself as the first personal finance solution to be used and trusted by millions of users," said Quicken CEO Eric Dunn. "As the market leader, we are proud to be on the cutting edge with this announcement of our support for Apple Silicon and Big Sur, featuring an upgraded yet familiar user experience and significantly improved performance. Quicken's reports run twice as fast on Apple Silicon, demonstrating the power of Apple Silicon's new CPU."

This version promises to make it easier for users to manage all of their financial accounts in one place, with new tabs and icons that can be used to display all transactions across accounts with one click.

New features offer a more seamless experience around account settings and payments, according to the company, and in addition to updates in the Bills & Income section, the update also offers deeper analysis in New Worth Drill-Down Reports.

Quicken for Mac is available from the company's website. There are several price plans available for Quicken for Mac starting at $35.99 per year, which includes phone and chat support along with a 30-day risk-free guarantee.

Ok, <insert random app> runs x times faster on M1, I get it. And I think it is perfectly fine to post such things as the M1 is completely new and we're all excited.

But why add marketing BS and pricing details? Is this a paid post? I think MacRumors lacks transparency sometimes.
It's not a paid post. Quicken is a popular app, hence we made an editorial decision to highlight the update for M1 Macs.

If anything was published on MR as a "paid" article, we would always be up front about it. Likewise, if affiliate links exist in a post, we always highlight the fact.

In my four years at MR, I've never been asked to run an "advertorial". Not once.

With so many positive articles coming out. I wouldn’t be surprised if more companies try to get their product on M1 Macs as fast as possible.

So, it will take one-half second instead of one second to generate a report. Nice, but I'd rather Quicken's reliability and troubleshooting ease with downloading transactions improve. Also, give me the ability to disappear features I don't use.
