I’ve used Quickbooks for 7+ years. Despite not having regular Mac updates, It has served me well. So for a 30 day free trial, I thought I would try the online version. And of course, they offererd the Mac app to wokr “like you are used to on a Macintosh”. ABSOLUTELY NOT at all like the stand alone app. Trying to launch more often than not get connections errors. Even thru the browser there is about a 50-50 chance that it will not connect. I need access ON DEMAND, not when it wants to try and work. Then the accounts were totally screwed up. I would have to go back over 7 years of entries to re-reconcile to get back to correct. NEVER AGAIN for me!

Buggy Enough to called Microsoft Books!
The current version 2.4.5 will not work
I’ve been using Quickbooks Online now for a few years and it’s been very good. They’ve added new features and the iPad app has been a great addition to my business. HOWEVER… the most current version of the Desktop App for QB Online lets me log in, but fails to get company information and sends me back to the log in landing page. Very frustrating. What’s more frustrating is the lack of support. Trying to get in contact with someone is a PITA. You can post in the community, but I’m not looking for accoutning help. Give me a phone number I can call that isn’t time limited (to times that I cannot call) or give me an email address I can send in my concerns. Quickbooks Online website DOES work fine with my login though. No issues there.
Buggy Buggy Buggy….
Connection is sketchy at best. Not the end of the world but when you are busy really trying to lots done little speed bumps can be a real buzzkill. Also many little glitches during Reconciliation processes. Get rid of the bugs and I would probably rate higher, but have multiple suggestions to Intuit and no response. Not a unique experience, big company unresponsive to little guy stuck within a platform.
I was using QB online and switched to the app and it has been horrible. It consistently crashes and says it is "working to bring my company information up. This may take a few minutes” or something of the sort. I have contacted support and they said they have been having issues and to uninstall and reinstall. I am tired of doing that. I had to go back to using it online which is better but not great. Very frustrating.
WARNING: DO NOT UPDATE TO THE LATEST VERSION YET. This latest version doesn’t work. I’m used to having to restart when I leave it open too long because it times out or whatever the buggy reason was, but now I can’t even log in. I’ve tried restarting the app, my computer, etc. I don’t have time to spend looking into this kind of stuff, it’s why I downloaded the app in the first place - my time is valuable! QuickBooks, get it together. If you’re going to support Mac and provide an app, then it should work. Your app hasn’t worked right since the day I downloaded it, and this latest update is very frustrating.
Awful Awful App. After taking 5 minutes to log me in, this is the buggiest app I’ve ever seen. Doesn’t update the transactions list on its own so you’re always having to manually refresh. Bunch of crap.
Waste of time and energy
The app is supposed to be faster than the internet version of Quickbooks online. Maybe it is, if you can ever get it to launch, which it doesn’t. This version is TERRIBLE! One of the previous versions worked for awhile until it didn’t. This one doesn’t work AT ALL. Don’t waste your time and energy on it.
