Quicken Mobile is designed to show your most recent account information to help you spend within your monthly budget, review current transactions or make changes while on the go, allowing for optimal application performance and saving valuable space on your mobile device. The desktop application is much larger and robust, so you will find more features on there than on your Quicken mobile app.
Budget items can only be added or deleted using Quicken desktop, which are then synchronized to the mobile device.
Quicken mobile does not support budget items that have a negative value which some customers use for cash flow tracking and planning. The budget on the mobile device is best used for tracking spending so you can stay within your monthly budget.
Quicken desktop incorporates scheduled transactions into it’s budget item calculations. Currently these virtual transactions are not sent to Quicken mobile and can’t be displayed in the budget charts on the mobile device leading to different totals.
Quicken Mobile does not support budget items with negative values so these do not appear in the Quicken mobile product. In some very rare cases this creates a situation where sibling budget items can’t be edited. Edit the budget on Quicken desktop if this happens.
Quicken Mobile’s rollover totals come from the data stored in the Quicken Cloud so if the cloud has a subset of data compared to Quicken desktop, the rollover amounts will be different.

Yes, transfers are considered categories on Quicken mobile and are not special transactions where money is moved from one account to another like on Quicken desktop. Quicken mobile does not support investment or loan accounts and therefore a “true” transfer can’t take place.
Alerts are defined using Quicken desktop. Go to the Mobile & Alerts tab and click on Alert Settings to define the items that will trigger alerts.
In Quicken mobile, slide your finger from left to right or right to left on the alert you want to delete. Tap the Delete button to delete the alert.
You can deactivate your Quicken mobile application on the lost or stolen device by going to Quicken desktop and clicking on the Mobile & Alerts Tab and then clicking on the Quicken Cloud Edit Profile button.

Since your information is stored locally and on Quicken's cloud, your information will not be erased.
