Hi there, @mazin-m-sharif.

 

I'd like to help and address your concern. Are you referring to QuickBooks Online (QBO) desktop app or QBO mobile app? If so, QBO and QuickBooks Desktop (Windows and Mac) have their own platforms that work independently.

 

However, if you're referring to an app and connect it to your QBDT software. You can go to the Apps Center from the menu and search for an app from there.

For additional reference, you can also check our QuickBooks Apps page.

 

Also, in case you want to learn some tips on managing your QBDT software, you can visit our Help articles page for reference.

Which app? Do you want to access your data file of QB Enteprise edition by an internet connection?

Hi there, mazin-m-sharif.

 

Thanks for coming back to this thread.

 

The mobile app version for QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise is unavailable. Since you've mentioned that you want to manage your account using your mobile device. You'll want to use the Intuit Hosting Program.

 

This program allows you to run your QuickBooks Desktop and store your data files on a service provider's servers so that you'll be able to use your QuickBooks securely, anywhere and anytime. With this, we can access your company file via a web browser. We'll just have to find the best hosting provider that supports mobile web browser.

 

I've also listed the QuickBooks Desktop versions that hosting providers can host :

  • QuickBooks Desktop Pro
  • QuickBooks Desktop Premier
  • QuickBooks Accountant Desktop
  • QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise Solutions
  • QuickBooks Desktop Point of Sale

I encourage you to visit these articles to learn more about this program and the Intuit-Authorized Hosting Providers:

Should you need additional help in managing your QuickBooks account, you can find me here. As always, assistance is just one post away.

Consider deploying a private cloud solution. Your mobile users may access your local data file on their mobile devices (i.e Android and iOS).

Another option, you may utilize a 3rd party app to manage a certain function (e.g mobile sales management app) and integrate it with your QB Desktop.. Users only have access to the app, not directly to your QB data file in host/server. You don't need to assign any QB license seat to these users.

  

Hope it helps.

I'm researching this now for clients and while I like all of these answers, I don't find anyone one conclusive. I'm assuming in this post we're talking about invoicing customers in the field primarily, (and not the receipts function). 

 

QB Desktop: Intuit used to have a mobile app for QB Enterprise (all the desktop products) in 2018, but they pulled that in favor of the App store app for QB Online only. I'm looking at the QB Desktop Apps section another poster pointed to and there is an app called Invoice Tracker that syncs with desktop, not by Intuit, but by a 3rd party. I have not tried it myself. 

 

QB Desktop Hosted: This is when you pay someone to host your QuickBooks Desktop software so as many users as you pay for can get anywhere, anytime access, the way one would with online, only with the advantage of the better quality QB Desktop software (including Enterprise). One client uses a host that we access using RDC (remote data connection). I can get access on my PC and my Mac, but does that lend itself to access by an iPhone? Another client is using a host that uses Citrix. I can access that one directly through Chrome, but does Citrix work well with the iPhone and Safari? When researching a host if iPhone (Android) invoicing is important, I would make that a primary question, and test it before committing everyone in accounting to that host?

 

QB Online. This is the product Intuit wants to sell because of the profit margins. When one goes to the App store and see QB Accountant, this connects with QB Online. I was at a client's last week for whom it was a big deal and he was super happy with how it worked. But then in my opinion QB Online is overpriced, slow, and buggy software so it's a trade off. For example, that same client has been overpaying salestax because the salestax feature & reports don't work for love or money. 

 

I'm having a wave of clients ask about this, so I'm just starting research, and looking for better information? Once I get it, I will write a blog article on this whole deal and add it to my white paper on remote access options for QB. Plus, the input so far has been good, and hopefully there will be more. This is an important topic. Thanks everyone.

You may explore these options to run QBD file on your MacOS, IOS, or Android.

or you may consider a specific app to integrate with your QBD and run on multi platforms. e.g time tracker, field service, construction management.
