Quicken contains a sunset provision that stops online features and any QFX formatted files from working after a certain amount of time,1213 requiring users to first buy a new Quicken license, and then to learn a new, often different interface from the more recent Quicken version

Intuit stopped supporting its Quicken software in the United Kingdom in 2005, leaving many thousands of users with only partly functional software14

In 2008 and 2009, Quicken users reported an unusually large number of software bugs for a commercial product151617 A review of Quicken 2010 suggests that quality and user interface in that product year is dramatically improved18

Existing Quicken Online users' data is not transferable/importable into Mintcom This is in direct contrast to VP Aaron Patzer's promise, made on April 27, 2010: "Until the merger with Mintcom is complete, you can continue to use Quicken Online just like you have Once we have completed integrating all features to Mint, you will be able to easily transfer your information and data to ensure the smoothest transition possible"19

Quicken for the Mac lacks some of the features of the Windows version2021 Furthermore, to migrate to Lion, users must pay $15 for an updated version of Quicken 2007; it has no new features22 The only way to obtain this version now is to contact Intuit Support directly via live chat23

Many features of Quicken 2007 for Lion do not work eg stock split transactions in investment accounts, and Intuit's support is limited Intuit continue to release updates to maintain and address online connectivity issues for their Stock Quotes/Pricing download and Billpay features2425 There is no common, inter-operable file format used between Windows and Mac see History below

History of Quicken and the absence of a common cross-platform file formatedit

Quicken uses a database file structure Since Quicken started on MS-DOS and the Apple II back in 1983 before the Macintosh appeared in 1984, the database structure of choicewhich did not exist for the Macintosh, nor has there really been a good common database structure developed that was cross-platform compatible created in the early days So, when Mac development started, it had to take an independent path, and the DOS version transitioned onto Windows

Then when Mac OS X came out in 1999 server and 2001 desktop, a new platform emerged Apple developed backward compatibility for OS 9 and predecessors, so Quicken for Mac development continued in an older platform database structure PowerPC based Apple continued to support PowerPC-based apps via Rosetta onto their Intel-based Macs in Aug 2009 via Mac OS X 106 Rosetta was a temporary measure to support the eventual transition to Intel-Only based Macs achieved in March 2011 with the release of OS X 107 Lion

In 2009, faced with the eventual retirement of the PowerPC, it was deemed that the structure for Quicken for Mac 2007 was not suited for the direction of the Mac intel and OS Xcitation needed Though they got Quicken for Mac 2007 to run on Intel in 2012,26 Intuit decided to start from scratch and Quicken Essentials for Mac QEM was created in 201027 Quicken 2015 for Mac, released in August 2014, and later versions for Mac are built on the Quicken Essentials for Mac foundation
