    Is there anyway to get Pocket Quicken to support the Goal Accounts from Quicken. At least I think that is what they are called.

    Basically it is an account that is not associated with any real bank account. It's just a virtual account that you can transfer money into and out of.

    I have one defined for my budget. When I deposit my salary I transfer money from the checking to the budget account. It's still in my checking account but Quicken doesn't include it in the balance. Then when I make a payment that comes out of the budget I transfer the money from the budget account to the checking account. When a reconcile is done those transactions don't appear since they didn't involve real money movement.

    The way it is now I can enter the transactions in Pocket Quicken but then when I sync I have to go into Quicken to perform the budget transfer. I'd really like to do it in PQ and not have to worry a whole lot about Quicken.

    I don't know about "goal accounts", but Pocket Quicken 2.0 will support budgeting. PQ2 is due to be released next month. You can get a free upgrade to PQ2 if you purchased PQ1 after May 15th.

    Here is the link to the PQ2 demo:

    Clintonlogan, where are you? What's the word on "goal accounts"?

    From the help of Quicken the function I use is actually Savings Goals. It creates the Saving Goal Account for you.

    The question still remains, will they be available to PQ2.0?

    And the answer is Yes!, Savings Goal Accounts are in PQ 2.0.

    Thanks!
