Mint.com’s Personal Finance App Comes to the iPad

by Marianne Schultz
 

Mint, a company that offers online personal finance tools and services through Mint.com, has released a universal update to its iOS app that adds an iPad-specific interface. Mint, a subsidiary of Intuit, offers its services for free to users in the U.S. and Canada, earning money from referrals made to users from participating companies and banks.

  • Easy-to-understand, multi-touch graphs show you where your money is going so you get a clear picture of your spending and your net worth.
  • Redesigned overview screen, so you get a quick snapshot of your finances and latest alerts, bill reminders and advice.
  • Enter cash and pending transactions so you have the most accurate view of your spending.
  • Get a detailed view of your transactions.
  • View your data even without a wireless connection.

The Mint iOS app offers many of the features available through its website, including an overview of all accounts, alerts, and spending and budget tracking. On the iPhone, the interface is a bit spare but it’s now fully gussied up on the iPad with charts and other graphics to more clearly show income, spending, and more.




I use Mint and find it to be very useful to get a bird’s-eye view of all of my accounts (I use Balance Forecasting to do detailed tracking and forecasting for my checking account). If you’re worried about security, Mint promises strong encryption and the same security practices that banks use. Additionally, the account access available through Mint does not allow any transactions to be carried out, so money can’t be moved out of your accounts even if someone else does get a hold of your Mint.com password.

    I saw your Mint.com’s Personal Finance App and liked it a lot. I’d be grateful to be shown a way to buy it for my iPad (I’m not lucky enough to be an American citizen.)
