Editors' Review

by   / October 23, 2014

Mint offers business news, editorials, and market info. The app is focused on India and Asia, but provides a good cross-section of international news as well. The app is easy to use and provides excellent content.

Pros

Mix of stories: The app seems to provide a good cross-section of stories from across the globe. There is also a good mixture of international affairs news along with business stories. For instance, when reviewing the app, stories about the Chevrolet Spark recall were right beside a story about China test-firing new missiles.

Multimedia content: The app also features good multimedia content as well as the text-based stories. A good mix of videos and slideshows are available under the "multimedia" tab in the navigation.

Cons

Difficult to read: The text is quite difficult to read from the navigation screens. It is cramped and in a narrow font, and at a glance it is difficult to tell what a story is about due to long headlines.

Slow to load: The multimedia content through this app seemed to load very slowly. It was also slower when loading text stories than other news apps that we've tested.

Bottom Line

If you're looking for a good news source to keep you up to date on what's happening in Asia and around the world, Mint could be a good choice. It has a good mix of content that should help keep anyone informed. However, the app doesn't work quite as well as some of the competitor's products and is difficult to read quickly.
