Finally fixed the mobile app

I have had quicken for years and when the app first came out it was really useless. I had to do everything on my desktop. I have had the app on my phone but haven’t used it in a couple of years. About a month ago I synced it with my account and noticed it would download my new transactions directly from my accounts to the app everytime I opened it. I was interested. I updated some catagories on the new transactions and also cleared some overdue reminders. To get these changes to sync I just open quicken on my pc and sync with mobile app and everything is there and updated. I no longer have to download the transactions from my bank on my pc. This helps me a lot because I’m always on my phone and I can update transactions using the app instead of having to spend more time on my pc. Sometimes in the past I would go over a month before opening the pc and I would have tons of transactions to catagorize. Now when I open the pc quicken I just sync and it’s all done. The only reason I gave only 4 stars is I would like the balance forecast on the app. I don’t open the pc version much anymore. Much improved over old versions.

Much better, and then...

Problem with viewing Quicken Mobile in landscape mode on iPad quickly fixed by very responsive developer.

Just updated to version 5.20.0 and noticed that I can no longer view Quicken in landscape mode on my iPad.

In the past I have been critical of Quicken on my iMac and the mobile apps for my iPhone and iPad. I was a bit miffed when Quicken went to a subscription service but I have to say that Quicken is now much improved on all of my devices and is very helpful with planning and managing my checking accounts and other finances. I don’t have complex finances, gratefully, and the current state of Quicken is meeting my needs. A while back I had an ID/Password issue that I could not resolve on my own. A call to Support had me back in business after an hour on the phone. The rep was excellent. So, let’s hope they don’t keep “refining” Quicken to the point where they mess it up.

Bad App

The application continues to ask for a numeric passcode I did not set. Only was around this is for me to enter random numbers in until the application asks me to sign-in, which then lets me log in as normal and view my accounts. But then the passcode issue returns a few minutes later and if I try to disable the passcode, it asks me for the passcode, which again I did not set to begin with.

After spending two days with Quicken phone support, they just gave up on the issue. First they did not even know what I was talking about, which tells me they don’t care much about this app. The next representative actually knew about their own app but could not find any documentation on how to reset the passcode on their end. After that it was basically a line of representatives all throwing an idea at the wall before they just gave up and said they would put in a help ticket with the application development team. Never heard back and the issue still exists 5 updates later.

Then the beautiful thing is when the app does work, it locks out my banking accounts. Quicken has an issue with certain companies where their account sync does not properly understand how to pass verification codes, so it ends up in locked out accounts. I would stay far away from this app.
