Quicken vs Buxfer

See why Buxfer is the best alternative to Quicken

Thinking of switching away from Quicken? You have come to the right place. Thousands of users have happily made the switch to Buxfer and here's why.
Why Quicken might not be the right choice for you
  • Quicken is an old school desktop software, which can't be accessed using your mobile device or a web browser.
  • Quicken's user interface is outdated, unintuitive (yeah, despite being built by Intuit!) and not very easy to use.
  • Quicken is no longer in active development. It's usage has been declining and it has been sold off by Intuit to an private equity firm, which usually is not good news for any product.
Why people are switching from Quicken to Buxfer
  • I am a long time quicken user, but have grown increasing frustrated over the lack of improvements and constant issues with syncing. To be honest I had the subscription last year but rarely used cause of initial issues with syncing.
  • Impossibly kludgy outdated interface. Each update brings new bugs introduced.
  • For at least the past 5–6 years Quicken has been piecemealed together, and this is what led them to where they are now.
