Mint is a juggernaut among budgeting programs. It’s been around since 2006, which makes it an old-timer in the world of financial apps. And it’s free to use. I’ve used Mint for several years, and it was instrumental in helping me learn the basics of budgeting.
Quicken is one of the oldest and most recognized personal finance programs available, with more than three decades of history behind it. But for many users, Quicken just doesn’t cut it.
Quicken is currently the most comprehensive personal finance software on the market. Look no further for a comprehensive and up-to-date list of Quicken coupons to save when purchasing this software.
To put it simply, Quicken stinks! I’ve been a longtime user of the accounting program, as I’ve mentioned in my Quicken reviews. In fact, I’ve been using Quicken since it was a Microsoft MS-DOS product (now over 25 years ago). But due to the lack of new features, no customer service, getting tired of the constant updates, bugs and somewhat uncertain future — it’s, unfortunately, time for me to say good-bye to Quicken.
If you had to think of two personal finance applications, more than likely you would think of Quicken first, followed by Mint. If you want to better manage your personal finances, both are extremely popular. The question, then, in this ultimate battle of personal finance apps is: Which one is better?
Running Quicken on a Mac has been a frustrating experience. I’m a longtime Windows user and, in fact, started using Quicken back when it was an MS-DOS application. When I upgraded to Windows, I upgraded Quicken as well to run native under Windows. Now that I use an Apple Macintosh, I still use Quicken for Windows.
I just read the news that Quicken is now for sale by Intuit. According to Intuit, they are still committed to supporting Quicken while it’s for sale. What does this mean for the service and how will this affect you?
