Mint cashes in on Android’s popularity

Android users can now manage their money on the go with a free application from Mint.com, the leading online personal finance service (acquired by Intuit last year). You read out preview of the beta and now anyone can download it from the Market (yes, even Android 1.5).

Mint allows consumers to see real-time account balances, check recent transactions, compare their spending against their monthly budgets, and edit transaction details all from their mobile device. More than 3 million users have access the iPhone app and now Mint is expanding their services to cover all the major mobile platforms.

The password-protected Mint also allows users to disable access if their phone is lost or stolen. Users just login to the Mint.com website and then immobilize the app.

Android specific features include:

  • OS Search: Easily search for and find recent transactions, anytime, anywhere.
  • Mint.com widget: Access a snapshot of overall cash flow in real-time.
  • Android Live folders: Get financial updates on the phone’s home screen without launching the Mint.com application.

Be on the lookout for a full review coming soon.
