Ignored Requests Since 2013!
This app has potential but not with the current developers. Since 2013, the review for the quicken mobile app has been 2 stars. They say to provide requests for changes to the app on their satisfaction website which I have done. In the 2013 app, they first didn't have the ability to tag transactions (which they later added), they didn't have the ability to split transactions, (which when they added didn't all to then tag the split transactions). The idea of having a mobile app is to be able to enter transactions when mobile. What is the point if you don't provide a basic entry function such as splitting transactions or tagging them? They say you can then go to your desktop version and make the modifications. What's the point then? You may as well enter the transactions in the desktop in the first place. Not very customer focused developers or reasonable developers either. Get some new ones and make this mobile app right! BTW Mint doesn't cut it for the features that are built in on the desktop version of Quicken. Mint doesn't have tags for example. Great for some users, but not for advanced users. If I were rating the desktop version of Quicken (Windows) I would give it 5 stars!! Amazing the difference between the desktop version and this app. Very poorly executed and written.
If you have used Mint, then you know how this app works. The difference is that it doesn't download transactions for you in the app like Mint does. So far, it seems to download cleared transactions only just like Quicken. Mint also includes pending transactions. With Quicken, the only pending transactions you get are those you enter yourself. The app also has the cool benefit of taking a picture of your receipt and saving it with the transaction entry.
You must accept this app for exactly what it is. It is an extension of the desktop client. It lets you view what has been entered from Quicken on your PC. It also lets you manually enter transactions while on the go to be synced with Quicken on your PC later. If you intend to manually enter transactions from a mobile device, it would be best to setup your Quicken client on your PC to update and cloud sync upon opening. You must cloud sync again when closing Quicken on your PC. If you skip these steps, you will experience issues!! I think most people who have issues with this app may just not understand the principles of how cloud sync was intended to be used with Quicken.
Quicken has no incentive to improve
January 2015 Update:
After having spent at least 8 hours with support to find out my QDF file was corrupted and countless variations to try to get it to import both to Mac and to PC, and failing, I have just let go of years worth of data and reports and started a new file. My new Quicken 2015 desktop software is fine but I cannot sync one of my bank’s accounts on Quicken mobile, even though that bank’s own mobile application works fine and the desktop version syncs well. Online chat support was friendly but ultimately couldn’t resolve my issue. Quicken has refunded my money on the desktop software due to the first debacle (see ‘Original Post’ below) but I still can’t use the mobile software yet with the new versions.
(Original Post) — Frequently fails to link to banks with correct log in information and doesn't offer possible reasons for the failure. Solutions require the user to have knowledge enough to delete and reinstall, then reset the software up multiple times. Updating too frequently and unnecessarily causes the user to have to sit and wait to use their device. Closing the app mid update potentially causes sync problems with your desktop Quicken.
