Mint cashes in on Android’s popularity

Android users can now manage their money on the go with a free application from, 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 website and then immobilize the app.

Android specific features include:

  • OS Search: Easily search for and find recent transactions, anytime, anywhere.
  • 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 application.

Be on the lookout for a full review coming soon.

    Downloaded and very satisfied with it. Great add-on to the internet platform.

    Works fairly slick; has a nice widget running on the home screen of my N1. The one issue I seemed to have is that hitting refresh went and re-polled information from Mint’s servers, but didn’t tell the Mint servers to refresh info from my bank’s servers. After I logged in from the web, Mint went about its update.

    Might just be user error though.

      Yea, I am having the same issue. Hopefully they resolve it.

    Finally! I have been waiting quite some time now for Mint to roll out with an Android app.

  • http://Website AEM

    It crashes every single time on me while trying to log in (Cliq/1.5).

    • Taylor Wimberly

      Looks like several users with Android 1.5 are having issues. Expect a fix soon.

  • http://Website Jaymoon

    Yay, I was just thinking the other day about emailing them asking for an Android app!

    Works great on my Hero… Boy am I glad I flashed a 2.1 rom onto it!

    • @darifresh

    I only wish their international support was better. Being an Australian resident my bank is yet-to-be supported by them. :(

    Such, a shame because this service looks really promising…

    Nice apps, but only taking care of US zone fans.

  • hollyw0od

    Woohoo! Now if they only sponsored the Mint 400 a certain doctor of journalism and myself could use this app to track our finances there…

  • Taylor

    Prior to merging with Mint, Quicken had support for CAD banks though now any new accounts are locked into only US institutions.
    I’d love you play around with this and shame myself into spending less but until they support my bank I’ll have to be content with.. Not spending less money.

    Has some issues on myTouch 3G. The home screen bar graphs are not colored and the Cash Flow screen is blank on both taps. Sounds like their charting engine doesn’t work on my phone for some reason.

  • David Shellabarger

    Also I enabled Global search and it doesn’t seem to work either.
    I do like what I see though, can’t wait for the fully working version :)
