Editors' Review

+

Trying to stick within your budget is no easy task when you're guessing at your balance. Mint.com's free credit-card and budget tracker for Android phones may change that.

After going online and giving Mint.com access to your bank, credit card, and investment accounts, the passcode-protected Mint.com app can monitor your accounts, your budget, and even your cash flow. The app presents your money matters in summary form, with the capability to drill down to the item level of a purchase. Follow the trail to the end to edit an item's transaction details or jot down notes or tags. Apart from those modest editing allowances, Mint is largely read-only. You'll need to set up and manage budgets and alerts online.

Mint takes advantage of the Android platform's home screen widget and Live Folder features so you can view your assets without opening the app--assuming you're not shy about keeping financial details within eyeshot of others.

Still, Mint's Android app lacks some of the Web site's best features--such as suggestions on ways to save dough and visual charts and graphs that drive the distribution of your spending habits home. These are the same missing features we've been pining over since Mint released its iPhone app in 2008 and we were frankly hoping for more. That shouldn't detract from the monitoring you can do on Mint, but this app is a supplement and not a replacement to the full-fledged Mint.com site.

"Don't Waste *Any* of your Time on Mint.com"

January 28, 2011  |  By backscatter

 |  Version: Mint.com Personal Finance for Android 1.0

Pros

Great Idea
Zero Dollar Cloud based $ Management

Cons

It is VERY Unreliable
Support is Non-Existent
Company Hides from Users -- No Way to Talk to Anyone

Summary

Mint.com had a great idea, but has taken its money from the recent acquistion -- enriched itself and its founders, apparently -- and has left its users without any support. Transactions randomly disappear, making your investment in time to set the system up along with your budgets -- basically worthless. If the transactions are not there, your information is not accurate.

Don't try to get support. The company hides behind web based support -- no phone number -- no street address -- nothing -- zip -- zilch.

Run away from this as fast as you can and save yourself much time and aggravation. (I've tried many competing solutions, and this is, by far the worst for support)

"Great Idea, Horrible Delivery"

January 04, 2011  |  By hammer285

 |  Version: Mint.com Personal Finance for Android 1.0

Pros

Looks sleek and has some nice budgeting functions/dashboards.

Cons

NO customer service support. Account lockouts occur at random, password resets are requested, and no reset links or emails are sent.

Summary

Beware this product. It seems great, but there are many, many flaws. After entering all of your financial account login information, and having your accounts link up....you might be locked out for no reason. Using a password manager, there should be no reason for a "Incorrect Password" message from this site. Downloading the Mint app on my iPod and entering in my email and password allowed me to get into the account via the app...but still not the website. After a dozen password reset requests, and 5 direct email messages to their customer service, I have received no response. Not only can I not login, now I cannot even delete my account with Mint. I will be forced to change the login information for all my financial accounts and worry about identity theft and fraud.
