On Thursday, Intuit notified users that it is working on a remastered version of Quicken for Mac 2007 capable of working with OS X 10.7 Lion, the latest version of Mac operating system. The Lion-compatible software should arrive by early spring, as Aaron Forth, the general manager of Intuit Personal Finance Group, stated.
In his note to customers, Forth apologized for not always living up to the company’s promise to provide them with best Mac products. He also expressed his concern with the delay of Lion-friendly version of Quicken and assured that this frustrating oversight will be cleared up in some months.
Users can learn about the upcoming release on Intuit’s support site that has been recently updated with new questions and answers. To be informed when more details are available, customers can leave a request on the page.
The change isn’t going to affect the Mac owners in any way, since their data files from earlier Quicken versions will be migrated to work with OS X 10.7 Lion, including any information entered in Quicken Essentials.
The rebuilt Quicken for Mac 2007 was said to be “just a first step” in fixing the company’s reputation. Intuit’s development team is also being expanded to provide better support for Mac users.
The software was last updated with Quicken Essentials, issued in early 2010. However, Intuit’s latest goal is to support the legacy customers, who haven’t been able to use Quicken for Mac 2007 since Lion was released in July.
