mint2, Bank Account Management, Android App Review

May 21, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

App Name: Personal Finance developed by

Description: The official app/rom description and what the app/rom does.

How it works: Simply log into and create your account, add you bank/credit card accounts, download the app from the market, and log in to the app.

Opinion: It is a good app, makes it very easy to keep of track of balances on accounts while on the road.

Ratings :

· Speed (5/5) I have used several different account apps and this app syncs very quickly and responds very quickly as well. I experienced no slowness in any portion of the app.

· Features (4/5) Loads of little features throughout the app. You can go all the way from an overview of all accounts down to the greatest detail of a single transaction, and even edit those details. The only thing it doesn’t seem top do is allow you to go back thorough other months and view budgets, or cash-flow. Though that could be because I haven’t been using it long enough to have all of that data available.

· Theme (4/5)Nice clean theme. not cluttered at all. I’m not a fan of the mint color but it goes with their branding very well.

· Overall (4/5) Over all this is a great app. Fast, clean, well designed. Again the only thing that seems to be missing for me at the moment is the ability to look through previous months.

Pro: The app is fast. Deciding if you can afford that new motorcycle? This app gives you an easy overview of your finances and may be what you need to make that decision. And again it is very easy to use.

Cons: historical data seems to be lacking for me right now.

Conclusion: You can, at a glance, see balances, cash flow, categories, and details of transactions. no more logging into many sites to get the info you need while in the store, on the road, at the airport, or just sitting around. All of the info is right in your hand and just a couple of taps away.
