1 out of 5 eggs SlowHard 02/26/2013

This review is from: Intuit Quicken Deluxe 2013

Pros: It still works(I think). Still downloads banking/investing info.

Cons: I've had this product since there was no Windows and there was no version number. Their motto used to be "Quicken - It's quick and easy"; if they were honest, they'd change their name to SlowHard. This is the slooooooooowwwwwweeeesssttt version yet and each new version I'm forced to buy to keep access to banking info takes away more of the features I found it useful for. Now it takes two clicks in different places AND an intentional save of the transaction to mark it cleared by hand. Used to be able to double-click on the field and move on to the next one to get a series of transactions marked in quick order. Shortcut keys are routinely dropped from support and replaced with multi-step arcane procedures to do the same thing (viz Print Checks). Toggling between a web browser and this "thing" is excruciating, especially if you're stupid enough to use keyboard shortcut keys. What can I say - quick, (formerly) efficient operational habits are hard to break, especially for just one app. Do it at your risk and go get a cup - no, make that a glass, and make it a triple - you'll need it. And what's with "Class" being changed to "Tag" just to be "hip" AND taking up it's own fixed width chunk of the transaction line, leaving even less for memo, category, ...!

Other Thoughts: The last reason I still have one Windows machine (the rest are *NIX) is strongly encouraging me to dump the whole mess.
