Goodbye Quicken 2007 – Hello SEE Finance!

Conferences that Work

I have switched my personal finance software from Quicken 2007 to SEE Finance. For twelve years, I used the venerable Quicken 2007 to manage my personal finances; a lifetime for software these days. Later Quicken versions never matched the functionality of the 2007 version, which has consequently remained extremely popular. If you don’t upgrade macOS (or keep a machine to run Mohave or an older version) Quicken 2007 can still be used.
