3.0 out of 5 stars Not Happy October 6, 2011
Platform for Display:Mac Download
I just upgraded to QB 2011 for Mac in January...because I was forced to. After working on my previous 2007 version a few times in Snow Leopard, I started getting dialogue boxes saying I needed to register my QB, which I ignored because it was already registered. What the dialogue box did not say was that all of my data would begin corrupting after a set number of openings. OK. I didn't like it. I felt connived as did an overwhelming # of reviewers when 2011 came out.

I've rationalized Intuit's strategy and moved on...until now. Less than 10 months later, no free upgrade, not even a moderately priced upgrade. No, Intuit wants another $200 in less than a year for a few more goodies, which, by the way, would be nice improvements.

I like the program! It functions well! I hate this company! BTW, are the posts prior to mine real? They sound more like company generated commercials than real customers. I'm willing to be wrong on this.

I don't doubt this version is actually really good. But I resent being herded into constantly shelling out full price...in less than a year!

5 stars for the product minus 2 stars for economic ethics.

****************UPDATE 3/11/14****************

Intuit upholds its stellar customer-gouging reputation as a money-sucking black hole with my latest email notification from them:

Intuit writes:
"Our records show that you are currently using QuickBooks for Mac 2011. As of May 31, 2014, Online Banking, Live Technical Support and other QuickBooks Services for this version will be discontinued.

Our policy is to offer support for the current version of QuickBooks, plus two versions back. If you want to use these Services or access Live Support you have two options.

Hi Magikchef,
I apologize for the experience you had running QuickBooks 2007 for Mac on Snow Leopard. As you note, there were a number of compatibility issues between QuickBooks 2007 and Snow Leopard, including the fact that registration didn't work on the new operating system. But we haven't seen data corruption; this could be a one-off problem with your file. If you haven't resolved the problems with your file, let me know, I can help.

I understand you're frustrated with the frequency and price of upgrades. We're constantly improving our products based on customer feedback and like to get new features out as fast as possible to make small businesses more productive. Many customers we talk to appreciate the improvements and choose to upgrade. Also, we offer a discounted price for customers upgrading from a prior version. That said, you can always choose to hold off until the next release.

Platform for Display:Mac Disc|Verified Purchase
I am a small business farm owner who owns QuickBooks for the Mac 2009. When Lion came out, instead of upgrading its software to work with Lion like ALL my other software makers, Intuit chose to force me to buy a new copy of their software. On their website, where the cost of their software is so much higher than on Amazon, they offer a $30 upgrade discount that brings the cost of the new product to a sum still higher than I can buy a new copy on Amazon. Because my accountant uses QuickBooks, they have me over a barrel and are using that advantage to extort me to buy another copy rather than supporting 2 year software, a fact that infuriates me. On top of that, my wife uses Quicken for the Mac 2007. She tried to upgrade to a more recent version but found the new versions don't offer bill-pay integrated into the accounting registers like the old software. Why? Because Intuit now offers a $9.95 PER MONTH service that does bill pay. Clearly being able to force users to pay $119.40 a year for that service plus for new software to use that service is an extraordinary money maker for them but extortion to me. I had to buy Quickbooks this time but am moving to MoneyDance instead of Quicken and hope for a better alternative when Intuit stops supporting my recent purchase in 2 years. Richard Wilson

1.0 out of 5 stars Hopeless pathetic loser of a company October 25, 2011
Platform for Display:Mac Disc|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Quicken is the personal finance program and QuickBooks the business program. People who rely on either one are entrusting their most sensitive data to a software company. Unfortunately, as Mac users of Quicken know by now, Intuit has basically discontinued the product and betrayed their longtime Mac user base. For the new, Lion compatible version of Quicken (called Essentials), key capabilities such as online Bill Pay are no longer supported. This is a huge problem for me. I have had a smooth system in place for a number of years paying bills with a click through my financial institution online via Quicken Bill Pay - and by the way paying $10 per month for this service, or $120 per year, every year. I would be happy to continue - but this problem is preventing me from upgrading my main desktop iMac to Lion from Snow Leopard.

When QuickBooks for Mac 2012 came out, I thought I might see a way to work around the problem. Surely they must support online billpay for business users! I would just accept the extra, unneeded complexity of using a business as opposed to a personal finance program, import my files into QuickBooks, and be able to use online billpay with a Lion compatible product. Thus I secured a copy of QuickBooks for Mac 2012.

Unfortunately, no. I now have delivery of QuickBooks for Mac 2012 and have more carefully studied what it does and does not do. Online Bill Pay is not found in the Mac version of Quickbooks either! It is astonishing that Intuit would fail to include this essential feature in all its current Mac products leaving its loyal customers high and dry. What a bizarre "marketing strategy," to continue to offer Mac products, but with downgraded functionality which causes customers to lose facilities they have depended on. I am extremely annoyed.

Hi Doctor.Generosity,
Thank you for your review. As you note, QuickBooks for Mac does not offer online bill payment capability. (To clarify, this was not removed from QuickBooks for Mac; it has never been offered in QuickBooks for Mac.) This is one of several key differences between Quicken and QuickBooks, including:
-QuickBooks maintains double-entry accounting behind the scenes (the standard for business accounting)
-QuickBooks offers forms like invoices and purchase orders that can be emailed to your customers and vendors
-Quicken offers purpose-built features for tracking investment transactions and holdings

We're disappointed that you would undermine the words of other users and entrepreneurs as fake. We assure you, we will NEVER write our own reviews. It's against who we are as a company. Instead, we're heads down on improving the product and will look into Online Bill Pay in future releases. Thanks for your feedback on this. Feel free to reach out if you want to discuss any other ideas with us. Email me at quickbooksmac at intuit dot com.

1.0 out of 5 stars The software is buggy, but the company is user hostile! January 24, 2012
By Tiferet
Platform for Display:Mac Disc
ThiS is what I have t sayt to will Lynes:


Your company - Intuit - is dishonest in the extreme. I have unfortunately used Quickbooks and its predecessor to manage the accounting for my two companies for EIGHTEEN years now.

Among my companies, I owned "Internet" one of the early Macintosh software developers. We created the industry standard for electronic mail for Macs and PCs, which we sold to Microsoft in 1990. so I have plenty of experience as a software developer, and know what I am looking at...

I lived through Intuit's 6 year exile - wherein they refused to provide ANY support whatsoever for Macintosh customers, and have since been FORCED to pay FULL RETAIL price for EVERY upgrade - up through QuickBooks Pro 2007, and several of its updates. (I am now on the last 2007 version issued - v.9.0.6R7) This version has quite a number of serious bugs, which long ago your technical people admitted to, and repeatedly promised that I would receive -- free -- an upgrade to correct the problems. And to add insult to injury, I also experience the program periodically deciding that I am NOT a registered user and putting me into trial mode, and ultimately deliberately corrupting my datafile after a certain number of uses. This is beyond disgusting behavior for a big company like this. Makes me understand why some people are driven to firebomb buildings...! (laughter) This all is especially disgusting as the program is intentionally built to act this way.

Ultimately the Intuit tech people admitted that they would not be EVER sending out the promised upgrade, that they were too busy finishing the "next" version of the software, and they would sent THAT one to me FREE as a fix.
