Quicken 2013 is transferred fine. I'm experimenting with new features. I like my Android smartphone and use it for lots of things on the web. So I decided to try the new Quicken App which means that you go to "the Cloud."

Everything actually worked fine getting the info to "the Cloud" UNTIL I went to the "Google Store" to download the App. I read the evaluations. They almost universally trashed the App as being worse than useless. I've never see evaluations that bad!

Perhaps similar to the early Q2013 experiences here, Quicken support was answering the critics, and some came back to admit that it had improved with the fixes. But I still didn't get a warm and fuzzy feeling about it.

1. Anyone use it?

2. I resisted having my information on "the Cloud" for programs like Mint for fear of security. I like having control on my laptop. Is that now unreasonable? I guess if I were to get "hacked" they could do it just as easily through my internet connections, bank or elsewhere. Every one of my major retirement accounts wants me to enter the data from other external accounts so they can serve me better.

But having the "Keys to the Kingdom" ALL in one place on someone's server still concerns me.

Should I upgrade from my comfortable stone tablets and chisels?
