Pocket Quicken 2.01

May 2002

Day-to-day expenditures really add up: the business lunch, the Father's Day gift, the ATM withdrawal, and so on. Intuit Quicken helps keep tabs on credit cards and checking accounts, but who wants to sit down with a pile of receipts and type in all those purchases? Enter Pocket Quicken, a Palm OS-based Quicken 2002 companion that lets you quickly and easily record your transactions as they happen. When you pop your Palm into its cradle at the end of the day, all of your charges, payments, and even balance transfers synchronize straight to your desktop version of Quicken.Day-to-day expenditures really add up: the business lunch, the Father's Day gift, the ATM withdrawal, and so on.

Helpful support; Quicken classics
After you install the $39.95 Pocket Quicken--a simple download and double-click--just HotSync twice: once to load the software on your Palm and once more to sync it with your desktop Quicken accounts, assuming that you have them set up.

In addition to capturing transactions, Pocket Quicken lets you view lists of your accounts, investments, assets, and balances. It supports foreign currencies; categories and classes; and, perhaps most importantly, Quicken's venerable QuickFill and Memorized Transaction features. As a result, you can record, say, a gas station fill-up in about the time it takes to read this sentence. The software takes only mild advantage of color screens, using red text to show negative balances, but the overall interface is clean and easy to navigate.
