Palm / Blackberry w/ Quicken software

5 posts in this topic

I know there are alot of guys here that run their own business.

Do any of you run either a Palm or Blackberry with Quicken or comparable software??

I'm looking to upgrade my phone, and would like to find someone that's been running a setup like this, to be able to sync receipts and such on the fly, rather than sit down at the end of the year, week, month, whatever.

I know they don't instantly sync, but to enter gas, parts, etc., purchases onto the handset, then when I get home, for them to sync into the proper categories.

Anyone??

Thanks.

They all use the Pocket Quicken which will work with Quicken on the PC.

Yes, I know they all work with each other, I'm wondering how useful it is.

If it's streamlined enough to where it would be feasible to put the extra $500 into the purchase of the phone + software. There's other options as well with the phone, so it wouldn't be like I was dumping the whole amount to the phone.

I have a Palm Treo 700p with Sprint. I use it to about 5% of its total capability, but it is still very useful me and my business. The Palm desktop software by itself is a pretty handy program. It has a calender, tasks, memos, and other features. I can be out of my office and check email and view pdf's and stay in contact about as well as I can actually being in my office. Like I said, I am way under-utilizing all of its potential, but I would buy it again in a minute. I love my phone. In fact I am typing this with it right now!

It won't cost you $500 to do it. Intuit now offers Quicken online so you don't have to buy the actual program if you don't want to. But im no sure how that would sync without the actual program itself installed on the computer.

The Pocket Quicken will sync with the computer when you hooked it up and it will put it into the correct categories as long as you know what your doing.

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.
