4.0 out of 5 stars Great for the new small biz owner November 8, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download
I don't review products very often, but all of the bad reviews for QB for Mac 2013 have caused me to want to clear the air a bit. It appears that there are a lot of problems with QB for Mac 2013 for two groups of users -- those that formerly used QB on Windows and those that are what I would call Advanced Users. If you fall into these categories, chances are you're going to be a hater. However, if you are like me and you have never used QB before and you have a new service business that your are operating out of your home or small office, this is a great product. Really it is. You're going to be able to figure out how to set it up pretty easily and within a month, you'll be comfortable and not afraid that you're going to screw things up as soon as you enter in a new purchase or invoice. Your accountant will also appreciate you choosing QB because that's the software most of them prefer. Oh and the IRS will appreciate it too because the QB for Mac 2013 version now has a handy attachment feature that allows you to attach a digital copy of your receipts. The IRS is cool with you having only digital receipts (and tossing all your paper) so long as they are in a searchable index, and this version qualifies as such.

Another myth that needs to be dispelled is that Intuit is made up of a bunch of evil hackers hell-bent on making their products the bane of your existence and ignoring all suggestions for improvement and ease of use. I don't know anyone who works for Intuit, but with their extensive Q&A community on their website (which has answered every one of my many many questions), web forms for submitting suggestions for new additions, tutorial videos, and easily accessed customer service, they show all the hallmarks of a company working pretty hard to get things right and keep you happy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Improved? Not really... October 12, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download
I upgraded to Quickbooks for Mac 2013 from the 2012 version because I am a sucker for software updates. One of the main features was 'improved reconciliation' but it should have said 'reconcile your accounts in twice the time it used to take'. I reconcile my accounts daily and with the 2012 version you can easily scroll through the register in the reconcile window with your up and down arrows using your spacebar to quickly check and uncheck each transaction. Now you have you use the mouse, it takes a ridiculous amount of time for the check to appear and you can't move on to check another until the check has actually appeared. What used to take 60 seconds now takes 6 minutes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Crash, Crash, Crash November 1, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Disc
Purchased the latest version of this program and running on my brand new MacBook Pro running the latest OS (10.8.2). Imported data - no problem. Looks great. Start entering invoices....crash. Restart. 2 more invoices. Crash. So on and so forth. Called tech support and had to pay either $49 for one phone call or $85 for 3 months. I did it. As tech takes temporary control over your computer, they saw it crash 5 times. Tried all of the help steps together. Crash. Sent file in for repair. They said nothing was wrong with the file or the program. In the end, they said it must be a problem with my operating system. I asked if this does indeed work with the latest Mac operating system and they said yes. So how can it be the operating system? Told me there must be a conflict - maybe some strange customer file, or template (I have used the standard template and also one of my own and still - crash). There is no other help beyond this. So I have paid for the software I cannot use, the $85 for tech support, countless hours and... I'm about to crash. If Intuit does reply to this email, I would love more than the standard corporate response. This is a big problem for me - my entire business runs on Quickbooks - and now looks like I have to resurrect my old computer and go back to Quickbooks for Mac 2009 (will this work on my new computer?) and ask for a refund (is that possible - downloaded about 7 days ago)?

1.0 out of 5 stars Product is buggy. Intuit is horrible. October 12, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Disc|Verified Purchase
Although I didn't want new features, I was forced to upgrade from 2010 Mac because I upgraded to OS X 10.8.

I thought all of my time sheet information was gone, but it turns out the first line of time sheets doesn't display until I refresh the window by reentering the employee name.

I called support to see if there is a fix, but they want cash in order to file a bug report, and see if there is a fix. Apparently I'm not doing it right.

I have stopped using Quicken for my personal books, looks like it's time to find a QuickBooks replacement and return this product.

QuickBooks Customer Care saysOctober 17, 2012
Michael,

Thank you for your feedback regarding your experience with QuickBooks 2013. I'm sorry to hear about your issues with your timesheets. I am not familiar with a product defect in this area. In order to view a timesheet, a name must be chosen for QuickBooks to know what to display. If you would like to display a report specific for timesheets, you can use the time reports under Jobs/Time and Mileage.

Please feel free to provide us with your feedback on how we can improve the software. If you our software can be improved in any way we encourage you to submit feedback from within the software by going to QuickBooks/QuickBooks Feedback. We do not charge our users to report to us a possible software defect. We encourage and appreciate the feedback. Please be specific in your reports so that we can look into a possible defect.

We want you to feel confident in your new purchase. I sincerely hope QuickBooks is the right product for you and your business.

Thank you,
Andrea Rahn, QuickBooks Customer Care

1.0 out of 5 stars Intuit. Platform parity is a must. November 12, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download
Without platform parity where you can work on it across platforms without problems, where you can export to the windows file version for your accountant, then this program is and always be a non starter.

It's a joke.

1.0 out of 5 stars New icons, but a big disappointment October 7, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download
Once again this upgrade falls short to address the bugs from years past. For me, the biggest disappointment is that Intuit STILL hasn't fixed QB2013 for Mac's inability to class the balance sheet (unlike the Windows version) and is still incompatible with Windows versions.

Given the lack of new useful **accounting** features, I'm not sure why anyone would want to upgrade (unless they think they need new icons)!

QuickBooks Customer Care saysOctober 9, 2012
Frederick,

I'm sorry to hear you feel our upgrade has fallen short from your expectations. The technology between the Mac version of QuickBooks and the windows version is very different. We have a dedicated team of engineers to ensure QuickBooks for Mac is comparable with QuickBooks Pro for Windows. There are reports available in the QuickBooks Premier version on Windows that are not available in QuickBooks Pro for Mac and windows. The ability to run a balance sheet by class report falls in this category. That option is only available in our QuickBooks Premier version for Windows.

The ability to transfer data from Mac to Windows and vise versa is supported. We refer to it as round tripping. Round tripping between Mac and Windows is supported when both programs are of the same year (Mac 2013 to Windows 2013). With the difference in technology and the two platforms, there are differences and it is not 100% the same.

We focused on adding features our users have been asking for. Many users who use the Mac version are not accountants. This year, our focus was ease of use of the core accounting features already in the product and the following...

Get set up faster by bringing in your contacts and items directly from Address Book or a spreadsheet
Understand how QuickBooks works with videos and contextual help in the expanded Guide Me
Get and stay organized with all your info in one place, by attaching documents (contracts, photos, receipts, etc.) to contacts and transactions
Invoice groups of customers at one time
Get paid faster with Intuit PaymentNetwork integration
Reconcile your QuickBooks file and bank accounts/credit statements more easily
Plus... performance enhancements and improved backup

Thank you for your feedback,
Andrea Rahn, QuickBooks Customer Care
