Mint Arrives On Android

Mint.com has release and Android version of their smartphone app. One of the two apps I really wanted on my phone has finally arrived.

Mint.com has released an Android version of their Smartphone app, joining the iPhone version. I use it on my iPod Touch and now on my iPad. (On the iPad it’s just a iPhone formatted app able to expand to 2X).

The Android feature set is similar to the iPhone app features. The Android apps adds a widget that can be used to show your total cash and debt. You can tap the widget to go to the full app.

It’s up to you whether you trust your financial info to a website but I eventually gave in to Mint and figure it’s as secure (or not) than my online banking. I do like Mint’s attention to security. The ability to communicate with the widget, have a live folder or have transactions available to global search are all off by default and have to be enabled.

I’d been using Mint on my iPad because it’s been handier than my iPod Touch these days. Now it’s nice to have it on Android with my always on connection. The only thing on my wish list is the ability to add pending transactions but that’s not on the iPhone version either.
