    This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Will new mobile app support non-USD cash accounts?.


    Current mobile app is not useful for people who travel or live outside the USA.  Please add support for non-USD cash accounts in the new mobile app.  Thank you.

    Anything being done about this or is Quicken ignoring us?

    This is indeed frustrating as not having multi-currently support renders the app useless for people that manages more than USD only. It has been quite some time ( over 2 years) since this concern has been raised.

    I posted this issue on Amazon five and a half years ago - May 2013 - see below - https://www.amazon.com/review/R30UC4AJGJJ6CW

    Quicken expects us to upgrade every year or two, but can't even do something basic like this to make the mobile app somewhat useful.  I was hoping that the situation would improve after Quicken became independent and left Intuit, but it seems not.

    Only possible answer after this amount of time is that Quicken are completely ignoring us.  They can't be bothered with non-US users!

    It is NOT just non-US users who need this. Many users nowadays hold accounts (cash, investments, etc) in foreign currencies.

    In my opinion it comes down to priorities.  One person's must have feature is another person's I don't care feature.  And the majority of Quicken users (yes US users) don't use multiple currencies and as such want different features first.

    But from what I understand of the history it even as clear cut as that.
    The initial reason given to only support one currency is that the system tied into the Express Web Connect system to get transactions, and it only supported downloading transactions in one currency (USD/financial institutions for the US version and CAD/financial institutions for the Canadian version).

    Now of course Intuit sold Quicken, but Express Web Connect is still supplied by them.
    I know that there was a BIG conversion of Quicken Mobile about a year after the sell to get at least some of this process on Quicken servers instead of Intuit servers.  It is not clear to me what is controlled by what company at this point in reference to the currency.  I do know that this conversion took a lot of work, and it is even why the budgets were removed from Quicken mobile for a long time.  Not only were they transferring some of this to Quicken servers, they also did a major rewrite on Quicken mobile.

    All of this has taken a lot of time out of being able to put in ANY bew feature.

    I just discovered on a trip to the US that my US accounts were missing from my mobile version.  After reading through this thread there is no committed date to add this feature to mobile.  The lack of commitment is frustrating.

    Hi Alex, any update on the ability to use multi-cuurency for the quicken App? It ould be VERY VERY helpful to have, as it would allow us (the unwashed multi-currency users!) the ability to correctly engage the budgeting function on the app, which is a major drawcard to using the app. Look forward to hearing back. Regards
    Rick
