For years now, autumn brings more than the new school year and Halloween. It also signals Intuit’s annual update of its QuickBooks for Mac bookkeeping software. This year’s version sports a few new features and—for the first time—upgrade pricing, but the stand-out addition is multiple-user support. Windows users have long collaborated on a single company file with up to five simultaneous users, and Mac owners are finally able to do the same. But we’re not all invited to the same party. Your QuickBooks sharing can be all-Mac or all-PC (using the PC version), but never the twain shall meet. Sigh.
If you’ve been looking for a better way to accept credit cards with your iPhone, Intuit and Mophie have teamed up and may just have the perfect solution for you -- assuming you’re still rockin’ an older iPhone 3G or 3GS, that is (for now).
A new entry in Intuit’s venerable line of financial software, Quicken Essentials is all about keeping track of your cash. Load it with your bank accounts, credit cards, assets, and loans, and it’ll show you where the money is going.
