I just started using Mint today and have to say that I am very impressed. It is not an Android stand-alone, as it began as a web-based financial tool. The app is very handy to have and puts all of my account in one quick view.
I have been playing with the web version today and love it.

The best app depends on what you want it to do. I need an app that can simply keep track of my checkbook. I don't need fancy reports or budgets. I do need repeating transactions and the ability to see where my balance will be during the month as my bills are paid from my account. For my needs, I like Pocket Money. It doesn't yet have all the features of the iPhone version, but even so it is working great for me. I reconcile every day or so using Mobile Banking to know what has cleared. Anyway, what works best really depends on how you want to track your finances and what features are "must-haves" for you.

Mint is a good app. I think Quicken owns Mint. And what they really need to do is Make a Quicken app that integrates with your PC Quicken, for Android. I have Quicken to and my best option of using it is using PocketCloud and using it from my PC lol. But honestly, I have Mint and PageOnce. I think pageonce is better and more on point.
But could Still get Better. Mint sent out a survey for people to find out how they can improve on what they do. So Im pretty sure soon its gonna be a better app.Just swapped out the Xoom Tablet for an IPhone. I never ever thought I would get an IPhone. Im currently eating my words. Apple has a lot going on here....Im loving both platforms.

I'm sure Mint is top notch when it comes to real-time current information. I haven't used it personally but I hear nothing but good things about it. But I need something that will allow me to plan and project future expenditures. That's what I use Quicken for.
I don't need a mobile app to be on parity with Quicken, but I would like something that is a decent companion. It would need to support importing and exporting quicken data so I can keep them both up to date. I'm fine with making it a manual process. Maybe I'd use dropbox to transfer the data back and forth.
There are a ton of Apps in the market. I"m wondering if anyone has found an app that works with a use case similar to mine. It would save me going through the entire list.
At this juncture a register app that allows me to keep it synchronized with my desktop Quicken would suffice as a basic need.
Some that I've found that advertise Quicken interaction
