Who uses Micro Money or Quicken?

Recommended Posts

I picked up Quicken first and had issues getting the software to get online and update my info. Now I have Money and I get the same issue. It let me originally put in the accounts and they initially updated, but they wont anymore.

Do you get yours to update regularly? I havent been able to use as much of the software as I would like because of this.

I do like the fact that it can even calculate your interest if you enter it even if it doesnt update though.

I love money! I have money 2007. I can access my money info anywhere I can find a computer with a web browser. great if I can't remember something. I do question how well MSN/Microsoft locks up my info. but I figure if someone hacks in and wants to drain my checking account of the 2.32 that is currently in it. let um..

I also like the update with bank feature. Most of my creditors are listed. it's cool to be able to download what I owe on my credit cards. It even works with creditonebank.

Does it actually work to update everything when you click the update button?

Short answer, yes. it depends on if the bank is a "partner" - listed in the list of financial institutions when setting up the account. If not, you'll have to download your transactions manually.

I started out with MS Money way back in the day and enjoyed it. Then I gave quicken a shot and used both at the same time for a while there. In the end I stuck with Quicken. Quicken was a bit more powerful with reports and graphs and allowing a mix of business and personal finances and kept track seemlessly, but Money was simpler to use with less options and an attractive interface.

I don't think you could go wrong either way as I imagine recent versions of MS Money are way better than what I used to have.
