Christmas is here and tax season is not far behind. Quicken has a new Christmas gift that many Mac users will love.
The company has sent e-mails to its users that it will begin to offer a new version of Quicken that will run under Lion and Snow Leopard.
Aaron Forth of the Inuit Personal Finance Group sent the following mail to users, recently:
“I understand the frustration this may have caused you and have put a team in place to address this issue. I am happy to announce that we will have a solution that makes Quicken 2007 for Mac ‘Lion-compatible’ by early spring.”
With the growing popularity of Apple products and the Mac OS X products over the years, Intuit has lost a lot of customers because Quicken is not compatible with many products. Intuit has created a page with more details about the update on its website. The page also hosts a link where customers can be notified when the new version ships.
For general information, we would like to tell our readers that Bill Campbell, the former CEO of Quicken parent company, Intuit, is a member of the Apple Board of Directors. Thus, the software that can make the software made by Intuit, compatible with Apple products.
After the release of Lion, Intuit mentioned they had no plans to release a Lion-friendly version of its application. Not only that, it has been 5 years since Quicken has been updated. Though, Intuit has offered Quicken Essentials for Mac, it would not load Quicken 2007 files and the software is is not able to perform online bill paying.
