Money management alternatives to Quicken

dianed143@comcast.net
(you knew this was coming)

Has it been a year since Tidbits did a roundup? Maybe it’s time for another ;)

It also appears Q2017 doesn’t do loans well unless I’ve missed something. Their support document is laughable.

I quickly looked at IGGs offering but since they abandoned iBiz, which has been critical to my 1099 self, I am hesitant to invest in them. It’s the only software they have at this point and when I bought iBiz I seem to remember them having more than that and iBank.

Right now I have SEE finance in my browser and will be looking at others in the last Tidbits roundup.

And seriously - is there a stand alone program that does investments better? While it’s great to have everything in one program I’m not opposed to multiples if they do a better job. I downloaded Stock + the other day but I think I need the Pro version to see what I’m looking for. I’d really like something that does “what if’s” better, has to download and handle transfers, dividends, sales etc.

I *do* like the charts Q2017 uses when you click on one of your investments. Very visual and great to see on a larger screen (if they are going up hah!)

Wow Randy - that list of stock programs is impressive! I looked last week and thing I found 3, guess I should’ve dug deeper.

Thanks :)
