Using Quicken Web and mobile app

edited February 24 in Using Quicken on the Web
I currently use Quicken for Mac and the mobile app on my iPad. Everything else I do and don't do leaves me with a strong desire to cease having a computer at all and using only mobile devices. If I instead had a subscription to Quicken Web and the mobile app would I be able to perform all functions of Quicken? I am a very simplistic user; I do not track any investment info. I use Quicken only to reconcile the credits and debits from my bank accounts and credit cards and categorization tools to help me set up my next years budgets. Could I do all that with just Quicken web (instead of Quicken for Mac, and the mobile app. Thank You

    The Mobile app and Quicken on the Web strictly are companion apps to Quicken on Windows or Mac. You still need to have Quicken Windows or Mac as the cornerstone of your financial records. The desktop computer is the only place where your complete financial records are kept. Web and mobile only have a limited amount of accounts and transactions available.

    Have you looked at the new Quicken - web only product - https://www.quicken.com/simplifi/
    Unfortunately, it is not integrated with Quicken data files, and you would have to start all over...

    I have. In fact I used Simplifi for almost a year before I switched over to regular Quicken because it didn't provide the granularity I desired for reconciling and categorizing transactions. Thanks
