I have had to use the quicken software for a PC for use to pay my bills. Some years ago I tried to switch to Quicken for Mac. It was really bad so I switched back and only use my PC laptop for this one application.
Has anyone out there used newer versions of Quicken for MAC? Any success?
Thx

They haven't done anything to the latest version to make it equivalent to the PC version.

Have a read of this article, its a total rant but summarises Quicken's pathetic attempts to create Mac software and is an amusing read - and it answers yourquestion and recommends alternatives

In addition to what louishen already said about Intuit's laughable attempts to create a decent version of Quicken for the Mac, be aware that the Mac software development community has worked hard to address this gap. There are a number of great finance managers out there that match or even exceed Quicken's capabilities. One in particular that seems to get a lot of positive reviews is iBank.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
