Intuit just announced a new QuickBooks app for Mac, offering a native desktop experience for Mac-using small businesses, which takes advantage of QuickBooks' cloud offerings.
“Small business owners who use a Mac can now access the power of the QuickBooks Online ecosystem while working with the operating system they know and love,” said Dan Wernikoff, SVP and GM of Intuit’s Small Business Group. “This is another example of how we’ve turned QuickBooks into an open ecosystem of business management solutions that can be accessed from any device.”
It lets users track sales and expenses, create estimates, manage customers, collaborate with accountants, create invoices, and let customers pay by credit card or bank transfer.
The app was designed to work with QuickBooks Online mobile apps for iPhone, iPad, and even Android phones and tablets though not all of its features are available on mobile devices.
It's designed specifically for Mac, and lets you keep an eye on things with QuickView in the Mac's menu bar. It also lets you use multiple windows and keyboard shortcuts.
"Elegantly designed dashboards and feeds instantly show you the health of your business and your next action steps," the company says. "That’s the beauty of the new QuickBooks homepage."
The app requires Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks or later. Apple, as you may know, recently unveiled the next version - Yosemite. You have to be connected to the Internet to use the app.
