Quicken is a personal finance management tool for tracking and categorizing income and expenditures. The software connects to financial institutions to download banking and credit card transactions, which it automatically categorizes. Quicken can help users create budgets, manage investments, pay bills and plan for taxes. The platform also provides visual representations of an individual's financial situation through graphs and reports. Designed primarily for Windows in the 1980s by Intuit Inc., Quicken has seen many versions with improved features over the years, including cloud storage options that allow mobile device syncing with data safety backups on servers or locally stored computers.
