Wow, I was pissed off last night when I got their cd in the mail and was told I have to upgrade for $60 or else lose my online functionality. They one upped Micro$oft on that deal. At least MS doesn't disable features on their old products, they just stop supporting them. What a rip-off.
I've also been using Quicken since 90s and QuickBooks since '08, but f-cking hate Intuit's planned 3 year obsolesce business model and 'in-app' advertisements. I'll take a serious look at the alternatives this year only because my 2010 version gets crippled in April. Hate to admit it, but $30 doesn't sound too bad.
Agreed...the 3 year obsolescence is irritating...you have to get the Premier or Home and Business version if you want online functionality (transaction downloads, etc.). I just bought the 2011 Premier version on ebay for $15. That will keep me online for another year.
I dumped Quicken when they released an update that stopped all of my sync's from working. Support had me hack a text (cfg) file to get it working again and then tried to charge me $70 for the support call!
I usually upgrade every year. However this year I am holding off. I was really looking forward to the mobile part of this product. However according to all the reviews I read it is really buggy. The PC version is fine by itself. It is when you link it to the mobile application that it becomes buggy.
