    Thanks Branden for the feedback – there’s a bunch of nice software out there that we find useful for keeping track of finances, we just listed some of the common choices for 2013

    Quicken is probably amongst the best – not sure if there’s an English version but StarMoney is also very good. There are other alternatives, but those are quite popular

    What do you intend do use?

    If you intend to start brokering and manage a portfolio of shares we recommend Interactive Brokers – probably one of the market leaders too

    Quicken is the most prevalent package but by sun-setting its software and changing the download format every 3 years or so the force an upgrade even if you current version works perfectly well. Many of the enhancements – and I use that term loosely – are useless to the average home user. This process is purely a cash cow for Intuit who try to buy up competitors much like Microsoft tried but failed to buy them years ago. Any evaluation of Quicken that omits the fact that they want more money every few years or you won’t be able to have your financial data updated automatically is incomplete.
