Mint Personal Finance gives you access to all of your finances on your mobile device, so you can check balances and verify transactions on the go. You need to set up an account on Mint.com and enter all of your financial information in order to use the app.

Pros

Budgeting tools: Through this app, you can categorize your transactions to see how much you're spending in different areas like Groceries, Utilities, Clothing, Entertainment, and more. With this information entered in, you can begin to set budgets for different categories based on your past spending trends and your current financial goals. Once you have budgeted amounts in place for each category, you can see at a glance how much you have left available to spend in each category for the month.

Visual presentation: This app presents financial information in different ways to make it easy to process and understand. You can see pie charts and bar graphs of your spending, as well as color-coded budget categories to let you know when you're approaching your limits and when you've gone over.

Alert options: You can also set up email alerts for things like a low account balance or a budget limit exceeded, so you don't even have to worry about obsessively checking your accounts or the app. This is a great tool to help you avoid overdraft charges, as well as to help you keep on track spending-wise each month.

Cons

One month only: While the budgeting tools are great, they only let you set the budget for the current month. It would be nice if you could plan things out a few months ahead to get a better sense of the bigger picture.

Bottom Line

Mint Personal Finance runs smoothly and provides easy access to all features through an intuitive and attractive interface. It's a great way to check in on your finances on the go, especially if you want to see how much you have left to spend on certain types of items while you're out and about. The app is free, and you can set a passcode to restrict access to it in case your phone is lost or stolen.

"Mint not ready for prime time..."

July 05, 2014  |  By curtislharris

 |  Version: Mint Personal Finance 3.2.0

Pros

Easy to use...

Cons

Numerous errors with many duplicates...

Summary

Have spent a few months with Mint now and feel I can give it an honest overview? In general the idea is great and it started out so? After awhile, my accounts were now showing with the correct data? Thought this would be an easy fix and I reached out to customer support to resolve? And that's when th drama started? Customer service seemed to know less about the app than I did and I don't know much! My investment page was showing something completely different than the investment overview page with numerous errors? A large amount of duplicate entries were showing which may, or may not, have had something to do with the problem? In short, customer service seemed to not have a clue as to what was going on, didn't seem to be intellectually curious enough to help me troubleshoot the issue, and quite frankly didn't seemed to be interested at all? Sense the idea of managing my accounts from a holistic perspective is great, I plan to try one of the other financial account programs like Personal Capital or the like...

"Not as promised"

January 12, 2012  |  By tnmedic1

 |  Version: Mint.com Personal Finance 2.0

Pros

Will import from outside sources, Can itemize transactions into specific categories

Cons

Won't synch with a lot of banks, does not synch well with USAA or other institutions. I get multiple duplicate transactions which must be cancelled individually. This has been a noted problem with Mint.com for at least a year with apparently no effort on Mint's behalf to fix this. Also, you cannot separate transactions into trends for more than one month. NOT helpful for year-end or tax purposes. You can sort the transactions when they happen, but if they are only occasional, then you have to manually search all transactions. Also if you close an account, you cannot delete any payment reminder alerts without deleting the entire account. NOT helpful at year-end time, either.

Summary

Good for newbies, folks who have one or two accounts, folks that don't do business with USAA, folks that can keep up with aggregate transactions some other way, folks that keep accounts open for years without closing them. IMO, this site is HIGHLY advertised but just doesn't measure up to all its hype.
