Editors' review

While Mint.com for iPhone won't bring you the entire range of financial information available on Mint's Web site, the updated app does come closer than its predecessor. If you sign up for Mint to send you alerts for significant financial events, such as going over your allotted budget, Mint will now push notifications to your phone. The app also opens up to viewing its recently added budgeting tools. New editing fields are the single best addition, and they turn Mint.com's iPhone app from a read-only summary of your finances into a tool that begins to let you update and change your settings and preferences from the phone. Right now this means assigning a spending category from the iPhone, tagging a transaction, and adding notes. An additional four-digit security passcode tops off the new features.

Without refined tools to manage investments or real-time cash purchases (some OCR software would fit in nicely here), does the update offer enough? With the exception of a slightly slower start-up, it doesn't backtrack. And since we haven't seen third-party software that one-ups this app, there's little choice for Minties. Dissatisfied users will need to scoot over to Mint.com from the Safari browser to access the site's spectrum of financial tools. Or, pressure the developer for more.

    "As mentioned above Run from this app Don't even bother"

    August 12, 2012   |   By Tiberian_07

    Version: Mint.com Personal Finance for iPhone 1.3

    Pros

    None don't waste your time

    Cons

    Had I read the reviews here before I would have downloaded the app I guess the an bad reviews are burried under the roughly 4 thousand reviews. I guess those people didn't have same problems I have. For more details see the Summary.

    Bottom line is Intuit should go back to the drawing board. For me I'm about ready to back to a spread sheet.

    Summary

    Given my experiance with Quicken 2011 on my laptop need a way to kep track of things I turned to CNET and read the Article "This is what dying software looks like." it looked like Intuit was or is moving from Quicken to Mint. I've sent several emails to both customer service of Quicken and Mint and since this deals with Mint, I stay with that one.

    I downloaded the app located my financial institution wouldn't connect, I went to the Mint web site to see if I could get information, nothing. I noticed the URL they have is not the same as what I use to log into so I included that in my email to customer service they responded back saying my error was not being ablet to connect to the server. I then clicke on the url link and got a page not found message so I've sent off another email that I still can't connect, and included again the URL I use to log in with. Still waiting to hear back from them.

    Now given what I've read here and my experience with both Mint and Quicken I'm at a point I'll just go back to Microsoft Excel Spread sheet.

    I myself given Intuit's Customer service or lack there of Mint and Quicken I think I'd rather not even trust Turbo Tax any more. Next year I'm going to Accountant to do my taxes. No more Intuit for me.

    "Run Away Quickly"

    January 28, 2011   |   By backscatter

    Version: Mint.com Personal Finance for iPhone 1.3

    Pros

    Cloud Based Financial Mgmt
    Zero Software fee

    Cons

    It doesn't Work As Advertised
    Support is Basically Non-Existent
    Company "Hides" from its users

    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)

    "Not a Quicken Online replacement!!"

    September 10, 2010   |   By socalmama

    Version: Mint.com Personal Finance for iPhone 1.3

    Pros

    Great budgeting tools

    Cons

    No balance projections and it takes forever to update balances. Can't seem to catagorize bills and delete them if needed.

    Summary

    Loved Quicken online now I am looking for something else to fill its place.
