Pretty Pleased with App/Q2016 Combo
I installed Q 2016 on a new computer, restored a backup from Q 2009, and reorganized my accounts... Adding Cash Accounts for categories I need to keep better track of and deleting old accounts that just cluttered things up (I'm retaining the backup file as well as Q 2009 on the old computer). Then, I installed this Quicken App, enabled Mobile Sharing and started to play. So far, after 3 days of play, I am able to (and was instantly able to) enter accurate spending info into my new Cash Accounts as well as ATM, online banking and transfers on the go... No more waiting for a Credit Card Statement to reconcile against a wallet full of receipts at the end of the month... My spending data will be far more accurate. Once I return to the desktop, pressing Mobile Synch adds all data to all devices.
I am not using Quicken for Bill Pay (my bank is easier and free) nor am I downloading Credit Card or Investment data. While this may seem rather old fashioned, I believe it will work quite well as long as I input accurate data to this Quicken App on a timely basis. Q 2016 will still be used to generate year end tax reports. My spending reports will be far more accurate.
Being able to do this accounting work on the fly is a wonderful thing!
Decent mobile app
I use Quicken on my Mac & like the iOS app quite a bit. It’s handy for entering expenses on the go. The recent update seems to have fixed an issue where the prior version of the app kept logging me out. I’d have to re-enter my login info & redownload my data about every 4-5 times I opened the app. So far I haven’t had that happen on the new app at all.
One change I don’t like is that it now opens to the Overview tab (the prior version opened to the Updates tab). I like to the use the app to enter transactions on the go. But now when I open it, the first thing that shows up is my bank account balances. I’m not crazy about showing that in public. So instead of using the app like I used to, now I have to wait until I’m somewhere more private to open it, which takes away some of the benefit of using the app in the first place. If I have to get a receipt, then put it in my pocket, it’s just as easy to wait until I get home and enter it into my Mac as it is to pull out my phone later & enter the transaction. I wish quicken would at least give us the option of setting our default startup screen, so that those of us who want some privacy can still use the app while out & about.
Having just upgraded Quicken on my PC, I thought I'd find the mobile app very useful. In my opinion, unless you intend to use it to stay with-in budget, it is virtually useless. The one singular feature that I was hoping and expecting it to provide was notification of upcoming bills that are due. I enter all known future bills in Quicken and when it opens on my desktop, I view the bills tab showing the "Stack" that are due in the next 30 days. When my PC boots it loads the Bill Minder screen that (although imperfect - but that's another story) shows me what is due within the next several days. I pay the vast majority of my bills online, so my hope for the mobile app was that it would at least provide the same information as the Bill Minder. No such usefulness. It only shows what you have actually spent and paid. Like I said - great - if your only objective is to stay in budget, or see what an account balance is, but not if you want to know what's due. I was hoping that I could count on this if I was away to allow me to see what has come due, and to go online and pay it. Not pay it thru the app, but just pay it at the payee's website. So now with the big disappointment, I may uninstall it or not. It is of no particular use to me.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
