For as long as I can remember, I've been using Mint to manage my personal finances. It syncs with all my accounts/credit cards, and the mobile app is pretty fantastic. Today, the Mint team pushed a pretty major update to the app in the Play Store, which brings a whole slew of new features to both the phone and tablet interfaces:

Phone Enhancements:
- Edit Budgets
- Create New Budgets
- Split Transactions
- Updated UI based on Android 4.0 Guidelines
- Updated Widget
- Squished Bugs
Tablet Enhancements:
- Split Transactions
- Net Income Over Time Trend
- Updated Widget
- Squished Bugs

With additions like the ability to edit/create budgets and split transactions (!), I can almost completely abandon the Mint website and manage all my finances completely from a phone or tablet. That's pretty incredible.

Unfortunately, the only feature it's still missing is the ability to toggle the available/current balance on the tablet app - something that simply baffles me. The website shows both balances, and it can easily be toggled simply by tapping the balance on the phone. Why this same functionality isn't also available on the tablet makes absolutely no sense to me.

Either way, the update is live in the Store, so hit the widget to check it out.

    My problem with Mint is that it's not available in Mexico. If it let me use the app without accessing my bank accounts (as a simple, beautiful ledger) I'd toss money in their direction, but even if it were available here, I wouldn't trust them with my bank account info.

    Anybody who knows an international alternative to this? I am from Denmark BTW.

      PageOnce? I've never actually used and and not sure if it's availble outside of the States, but you can look into that.

        Thanks for the suggestion, but went with Toshl instead as it looks closer to what I need.

        • Dipish

          Ended up using Toshl too and love it :)

        isn't pageonce a travel app? am I missing something?

        • ddpacino

          I implore you to just Google the name. You'll see "Bill Pay, Personal Finance..." in the title.

            Funny, they're not on Play Store but I was able to find the app you're talking about, thanks

          • ddpacino

            Ok now I see. It's unavailable for my country that's why it wasn't showing up in the results!

  • Derek Traini

    It looks great! Except it still has the Gingerbread circle icon when loading something, not the one from ICS.

  • Stephan

    Unfortunately unavailable in Germany :/ Only for US customers?

  • Simone Summer

    for everyone who lives outside USA i suggest toshl.com it has a free plan and a paid one (20$ a year) but i am using it free since 2010

    YNAB is a great alternative outside the US (and inside for that matter)
