Anyone tried Quicken Canada 2018 (For Win or MAC) yet?

Noticed the trend where all these budgeting/financial software are going subscription model so there's no way around it.

Quicken Canada now has both MAC & WIN versions for 2018 available for 60$ per year (53 first year). Any reviews?

I'm staying away from Mint.com as I don't want to hookup my financial site credentials to it.

I heard the actual upgrade is minimal so I’m sticking with my non-sub version for as long as I can.

I am using Home and Business 2018. It looks much better on my screen than prior versions, but other than that there's not a huge difference.

How valuable are these softwares? Especially if your self-employed income is minimal?
My income is mostly working for a government (local). Other income is self-employed + child support income (very minimal) + CCTB.

Since almost everything is subscription now, I went with Pocketsmith. I'm really enjoying it so far. Lots of forecasting, organization, and much less annoying than mint for me.

So I spent the weekend on Quicken for MAC and decided this morning to request a refund.

Two of my main providers don't play well with it:
-Questrade (non-existant)
-Tangerine (Manual imports of OFX files not supported)

Sorry to dig up the old thread but I had a question about the different versions of Quicken specifically about tracking your investments. I'm using the Home & Business 2015 version and I manually put in my investments and get updates to their prices to see how much my portfolio is worth. Would Quicken 2018 Deluxe accomplish the same thing or do I have to go to the H&B version? Their site is not 100% clear on it.

Thanks.

Wow them too on a subscription plan, huh... looks like I’ll ride my YNAB 4 into the rocks (like when Apple stops supporting 32-bit software, which is the version after next).

They care so much about your budget that they want to take some of your money from it!
