Great financial software, highly recommended for anybody without similar software

This review is from: Quicken Starter Edition 2013 [OLD VERSION] (Software)
I'll start by saying that I've never used Quicken before. Most the negative reviews of this product are from people who have used previous versions of Quicken, and has issues with the upgrade from the old version. I've never used Quicken, so I can't comment on those types of issues, but I can comment on this version in itself. The software is great. The thing that shocked me the most was the ability of the software to connect to all of my banks, credit card companies, etc, and pull information into one screen. I do business with some fairly small banks, so I'm not sure how they manage to pull this off, but its super nice. While I prefer to charge everything rather than pay cash, sometimes it does make it easy to lose track of how much money you are spending on eating out, or a particular category. Quicken shows you graphs of the categories you are spending your money, which can be a real wake-up call.
This software probably isn't for everybody. If you're pretty good at budgeting your money, then you will probably have a hard time justifying spending $40 on this product. For other people, it will end up saving them way more than $40. While I am probably in the first category, the review is on the software itself, and Intuit has done a great job with the software. The user interface is well designed, and easy to use, and all of the included features are very helpful. Whether or not the product is worth the price is a decision you'll have to make yourself, but rest assured that the software works great if you do decide to buy it.
