Quicken is a personal finance management tool developed by Intuit, Inc. Quicken runs on Windows and Macintosh systems. Previous versions ran on DOS. An online version is also available. There are several versions of Quicken, such as Quicken New User, Quicken Basic, Quicken Deluxe, Quicken Rental Property Manager, Quicken Premier, and Quicken Home & Business. Each version of Quicken also tends to have the release year in the product name (e.g., Quicken Basic 2008).
Most versions of Quicken are primarily provided and specialized for the US and Canadian marketplace and user base. However the core functions can often be used more widely regardless of country. Development of the UK-specific version of Quicken was discontinued in January 2005, with sales and support following shortly after.
The last version of Quicken for Macintosh computers was Quicken Essentials for Mac released in February 2010. Some of the features of Quicken are not present in Quicken Essentials for Mac, such as the ability to track investment buys and sells, to export data to TurboTax, or to pay bills online from the application. For these features, the Quicken web site recommends Quicken Mac 2007.
