Quicken is a software application that you can download onto your computer to personally manage your finances. Once you have the program downloaded on a laptop or desktop computer, you can sync your financial information with your iPad through Quicken's mobile application.

Different Mobile Versions

As of November 2013, there are two versions of the Quicken app for the iPad: Quicken 2013 and Quicken 2014. According to Intuit, the company which produced and released the personal finance app, the Quicken 2013 mobile app syncs with the desktop information from Quicken 2013 for Windows while the Quicken 2014 mobile app does the same for Quicken 2014 for Windows. Both apps can be downloaded for free from the App Store, so verify you download the appropriate app based on your desktop application.
