Quicken iPhone app coming
Intuit is preparing a dedicated iPhone application to complement some of its existing platforms, a product manager for the company says. The app is based on the company's Quicken Online service, and provides simpler financial tracking than the conventional desktop versions of Quicken. Users can browse a chart showing the progress of their finances over time, and zoom in using touch controls to see specific transactions.
Users can also see the money remaining in their accounts, and how much is projected to be available during the next 30 days after expenses are factored in. Cash purchases can be recorded and uploaded to Quicken Online, and an iPhone's GPS receiver can be used to locate nearby ATMs and sort them by fees charged, if any. No price or release date for the app has been suggested.
