I just wanted to point out there is a pretty good Quicken alternative for M
ac and Windows called Moneyspire. Lots of Quicken users have been switching
over to Moneyspire because they have been dissatisfied with Quicken and th
e direction it has been heading over the years. Check Moneyspire out and gi
ve it a try if you are interested. Their website is http://www.moneyspire.c
Does Moneyspire download transactions from all the FIs that Quicken
does, especially FIs such as Vanguard, Fidelity, Schwab, etc? Does it
provide the toolset that Q does such as Asset Allocation modeling and
rebalancing values, modeling, etc?
I haven't looked at Moneyspire for a while, but at that time, it was
deemed by me and others as a very poor alternative. Maybe they changed
Lastly, the statement that users have changed "because they have been
dissatisfied with Quicken and the direction it has been heading over the
years" to me is not even a valid comment now since Intuit recently sold
Q, and we have yet to see what the new owners of the product have in mind.

That is one of the silliest ways to pay a bill that I can
think of...other than writing out a check, putting it
in an envelope, then mailing it, of course.

months. I pay
I pay all my bills through Quicken's sending the payments, or for
utilities, credit cards, etc. though auto-pay from my bank. But I have
a few service people (maid, gardener, etc.) that I write a check to
when they are here; they don't want to wait for a check to arrive in
the mail. So I probably write some 40 or so paper checks a year
Getting back to Moneyspire (the philosophy of why some people pay bills
via Quicken and calling it 'silly' is not what this thread is about),
I'm waiting for George to get back to us with any updates and feature
capabilities of Moneyspire.
