Intuit issued an email to their customers today announcing that they are developing a re-engineered Lion-compatible version of Quicken for Mac 2007 after numerous customers voiced their frustration.
According to Intuit general manager Aaron Forth, the company is currently working on a way to make Quicken for Mac 2007 compatible with OS X Lion, and plans to have a solution ready by early spring.
As you may know, Quicken for Mac 2007 does not currently work on Apple’s latest operating system, Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion). I understand the frustration this may have caused you and have put a team in place to address this issue. I am happy to announce that we will have a solution that makes Quicken 2007 for Mac “Lion-compatible” by early spring. There are still details to be worked out, so I ask your continued patience as we work through these.
Forth considers this to be just the first step in winning back customers who were disappointed at Quicken for Mac 2007’s lack of Lion compatibility.
The company has published a FAQ on their support website containing details on the upcoming release, as well as answer to common questions that customers might have, as well as a notification system for letting customers know when it becomes available.
