Intuit today announced the availability of Pocket Quicken® 2.0 for the Pocket PC platform. This new software release delivers the same features and enhancements as the award-winning Palm OS version. Pocket Quicken’s excellent connectivity to the desktop instantly mobilizes consumers’ financial data with a single ActiveSync.
“With Pocket Quicken, millions of Quicken users can now take advantage of the full range of Pocket PC devices,” said Mark Spain, director of the Mobile Devices Division at Microsoft Corp. “We are thrilled to have Quicken join the growing list of popular PC applications that are now available on the Pocket PC.”
Pocket Quicken is the true mobile companion to Quicken desktop software. Using the built-in ActiveSync, Pocket Quicken seamlessly transfers Quicken information to the Pocket PC device.
