by Reads (14,309)

Intuit and LandWare have just announced the long-awaited release of Pocket Quicken 2.0 for the Pocket PC platform. This includes the same features as the award-winning Palm OS version.

Using the ActiveSync, this app transfers Quicken information to the Pocket PC device. Full account details, transactions, categories, classes, currencies, and memorized payees are all available on Pocket Quicken.

Of course data synchronization is two-way. Upon synching data, consumers who open desktop Quicken will see the new Pocket Quicken transactions, and can approve the entire list of new transactions for any particular account or approve transactions one at a time.

Users can decide which accounts to sync between Pocket Quicken and the desktop version, and they can chose how many days, weeks, or months of transactions they would like to have on the handhelds. Special attention has been paid to minimizing the space required by transactions stored on the handheld. LandWare says users will be able to store several years of financial activity without filling up their handhelds.

This app has been designed to eliminate the need to type up monthly receipts. Instead, users can save everyday transactions directly on their handhelds. Pocket Quicken uses Quicken’s QuickFill and Memorized payee list to record day-to-day transactions with as little as three strokes of the stylus. Just start writing the payee’s name and a new transaction is automatically created with all the details filled out. Consumers can assign up to ten categories for each transaction

This app requires Pocket PC 2000 or later and ActiveSync 3.5 or later. It requires approximately 400K of RAM on the handheld. Pocket Quicken supports all Windows-based US/Canadian versions of Quicken (99 and later).

Pocket Quicken 2.0 for the Pocket PC is available now from LandWare for $30.
