Quicken Online Mobile

July 7, 2009

Quicken Online was developed with the goal of helping people live within their means.  In my conversation with Barron, he discussed how many people only have a little bit of money left over each month and can’t afford to pay late fees or bounced check fees and need to watch their money carefully.

Since Quicken Online is available from anywhere via a mobile device it’s setup to help consumers make quick buying decisions when they’re at the store.  You can set it up so you can check your bank balance on the go so you know before you buy something what your balance is and whether you can afford it.

If you use your phone to record checks written in Quicken Online you can take a quick look at how much is in your account and what checks are still outstanding before you spend money that you don’t have.  Mobile access is available on all phones at m.quicken.com, using the WAP protocol to give you access to Quicken Online.  In addition to checking your balance the software also has an ATM list, to help you find your bank’s ATM and avoid fees when you need money.

Intuit has also created an iPhone app that makes the ATM feature more intelligent.  The iPhone app for Quicken Online will find ATM’s near your current location and highlight those that belong to your bank.  You can also check your credit card balances from Quicken Online mobile so you have a dashboard of all the money you have in the bank and all the money you’ve spent.

Next post we’ll talk about the trends page that helps analyze your spending patterns and suggests ways to cut spending and save money.
