Mint is the best because it forces you to see how much money you spend on what. I recently moved out on my own and used to be so irresponsible with my finances. Since getting Mint I've been able to add a little but to my savings account and actually have some prospects to buy a new car! Since Mint forced me to see where my money was actually being spent, I've been able to cut back on the small unimportant purchases, which have really added up.

I used to use Mint daily but ever since the upgrade, it has gone way down hill. Every time I go to open the app now, it needs to update my accounts before it can open. This can take quite a bit of time. Also, it is not compatible with my banks SafePass. I'm not sure if this occurred before or after the update since I just tried to add it, but it is really annoying. I'm hoping that Mint does another upgrade that fixes these issues so I can ... go back to them again. More Less

Mint is a great app, but there are still a few kinks that need to be worked out. For example, when categorizing purchases, I feel like sometimes Mint plays a guessing game and hopes the transactions are thrown into the correct category. I mean, if a purchase is very obviously food and it doesn't end up there, it can be frustrating because you have to manually fix it. I also have some problems connecting at times, but all in all, Mint is getting better by the minute.

I'm a fan of Mint, but I am a wee frustrated with the restrictions that are placed on the app. For one, there is no possible way to edit the things you have on the app in bulk. You have to use precious time out of your day to change them, one by one. Also, I'm a bit irritated that the programmers came out with Mint Bills. I have yet to use it, but why would I need to keep track of my bills, when they are one in the ... same with my general finances? More Less

I'm always amazed how many companies and startups can get away with putting crap apps out there for download, but Mint is not one of them. For the last couple months, this app has been an integral part of my financial life. The user interface is very neat and easy to use, even for beginners. The best parts of the app are probably the budgeting and bill pay reminder features. Life is busy, and Mint makes it easy for you to remember things.

I've always said I needed an accountant or financial advisor to help me with my money, and that is exactly what Mint is. Well, not exactly, but it helps you better organize everything in one spot. You have the budgeting tool that helps prevent overspending, you have the bill pay feature which alerts you when upcoming bills are do, and you have the general accounts which show your transactions. Everything is there, and Mint organizes it to make it the easiest thing in the world.

If Mint could recognize more of the transactions, it would be fantastic. Right now, I have to go through and categorize the transactions that it doesn't recognize, and it's a bit of a pain. But I do really like Mint for everything else. It easily connects to all of your accounts so you have everything in one spot. It also sends you alerts about your bills due dates, which is really helpful for us who tend to forget.

I haven't missed any bill payments since using Mint! I used to be late here and there, but Mint sends you notifications when a bills due date is coming up. It also tracks budget limits you set, so you always know where you stand financially. It's a great little app that allows you to be in control of your finances. It's also a nice feature that it connects to your bank accounts automatically, instead of having you put in everything manually.

If you are one to budget your families expenses, this is the app for you. Mint puts everything right in front of you and makes it as easy as can be. My one complaint comes from the fact that you have to wait so long for checks to be processed in order for them to be accounted for in Mint. I get paid by checks, so this takes a while every week. Other than that, it's been a great asset to me while I budget my money for myself and ... my family. More Less

Mint shows you your credit score, which is awesome!! I used to have to sign into my credit card account (which I only do to get my credit score) but now I have it on an app that I look at on a daily basis. I love that it brings everything together. I used to have three separate apps to manage my bills, transactions, and savings goals - but Mint has all that and more in one place! This app is fantastic.

After years of searching for a financial management tool that actually works for my family, we've finally found one. My wife and I have been using Mint for a month now, and it is the most helpful thing we have ever found. The best part about it is that you can make your accounts and information available to your spouse or significant other. That way you both can manage the finances, instead of just one person taking charge.

Budgeting used to be a huge chore for me because I'm really not good with organization. Mint changed all that because it shows you where your money is really going. It also shows you your transactions immediately. It's kind of like a wake up call seeing it all in front of you. It also alerts you of charges to your cards that you probably wouldn't have noticed otherwise. It's helped me save a few bucks within the past couple months!

This app takes forever to update! When you first open it, it probably takes five minutes or so just to update your account information. I know it's not my phone because none of my other apps are this slow. I have also turned my notifications on for this app, and haven't received any notifications even though there has been account activity. I've checked to make sure it was on, and still nothing. I don't know what to do.

I was so hesitant to get an app that housed all of my financial information, but my friend pushed me into downloading Mint. Actually, I'm so happy that I did. Intel is the pushing force behind this little financial app, which makes me feel much more secure than I did before. I've had it for two months and haven't had any issues with security. For a free app, this guy does a lot. It's definitely helped me and will probably help you, too.

In my quest for better financial management, I've used sooo many different apps. I've been struggling with another popular one-that I've paid for-when I eventually had enough and got Mint. Even for a free app, this one is soo much more reliable and much better than the one I had before. I haven't experienced any kinks or glitches, and it shows all of your transactions right before your eyes. Great app- I'd recommend it.

Mint needs to work on categorizing the transactions on my accounts better. I make a bunch of small daily purchases and they are usually uncategorized. Every day, I have to go through and put them into the correct category. I enjoy Mint so much that I manage to find the time to do this every day. But it's starting to be a daunting chore. It'd be a great feature if you could categorize one transaction and have all the same ones go in the same direction.

I'm a newer Mint app user and thus far I'm satisfied. I've used other apps that aren't as user friendly as this one. I did have to take one star off because my transactions are not always placed into the correct category, and it is really time consuming to go back and fix them. This is really my only complaint. It doesn't seem like a tough fix, so when they are put into the right category, Mint just may be the perfect app.

Mint is an absolute must if you are interested in managing your finances. I love that you can even include things like your 401(k) on there. I also love the fact that I'm able to actually see everything in one place. Before I would have to jump from site to site or read hard copy documents to get my numbers, but Mint puts your personal net worth right in front of you on your smart phone. An absolute necessity if you care about your money and assets.

This app has changed my life! I used to be the person that never had money to go out because I'd spend it all, but now it's all different thanks to Mint. It would be wonderful, though, if I didn't get so many dang bill pay reminder prompts. I have selected to opt out of the bill pay reminder various times and I keep getting prompts from them! It's very annoying, but not enough where I would stop using Mint.

I love Mint! I've been using this app for a few years now and I can tell you, it's tops when it comes to financial responsibility. I know Mint recently look over the Check app and created Mint Bills, and I'm really really hoping that they bring Mint and Mint Bills together. That would be like the ultimate power app! Until then, I am using Mint and Mint Bills separately and am loving every minute of it!

Mint is the first financial app I have ever used and will probably ever use. A friend of mine told me to check it out after I mentioned I wanted to start paying more attention to my finances. It has so many great attributes that it's hard to put it down at all. My only concern would be the categorization- sometimes it's great, sometimes not so much. But I would definitely recommend Mint and have gotten my friends to use it with me.

If the app had as many features as the website, it would have gotten 5 stars. The website is so much more efficient because you can do more things, but the app is more convenient since it is on your phone. On the app, you cannot add categories or split specific transactions between categories. I find myself going back and forth between the app and the website. If they could integrate it all into the app, it would be amazing.

I have used Mint to keep track of my finances for about 2 years. I have tried other sites/apps but none have been as user friendly as Mint. First of all, they hook up directly to your bank account so you don't have to enter individual transactions. It automatically categorizes each transaction and will remember custom settings. They will email you and let you know when you've been assessed bank fees and make recommendations when it recognizes that you're paying more for something than you should be. The only thing ... I'd like to see it do that it doesn't already (at least I don't think it does) is to have it project future payments and warn of potential hiccups so I can plan a bit better for the future. I know it has budgeting options already but I'd like to have a better outlook on the future. Such as... Christmas is coming up, help me prepare for it in advance. Overall I do think this is a great site/app and I'm going to continue to use it as my money manager. More Less

I have been using mint for about 6 months now and couldn't be happier with my choice. It is so easy to use, fast, and helpful. I love making my own personal budget with the app, custom to me. There is even an alert feature if you exceed your budget, have a low balance, receive an ATM fee, large purchases or large deposits made. The weekly summary that I receive via email each week is a quick overview of where my money went, my budget, and my ... accounts...perfect for me. I can join all of my accounts together and get an idea of what my cash flow looks like. Its efficient for my money management needs, which is a fast, understandable and effective. I love mint and I recommend it to all of my friends. More Less

I've taken advantage of Mint for the last several years and have always been happy with the results. Yes, there are some companies that may be ahead of Mint, but Mint is one of the forerunners, and for that reason I think I find it easier to use. Mint has had time to figure out what Mint is and what Mint isn't and that shows in how user friendly it is. It does make managing your accounts easier, and when I've wanted to pay particularly close attention—such as when I've ... wanted to tighten my budget belt—Mint has been a very helpful financial tool.

I use Mint on my personal computer. The app looks great and operates smoothly, but I am wary about conducting personal business on a mobile device. I also don't feel entirely comfortable conducting my banking business on a third-party program, so I am not really concerned with being able to pay bills, etc. through the program. I basically use Mint as a centralized location to take a quick look at my financial accounts to determine if I need to take further action within the individual institutional websites or on the ... phone with customer service.

Once you set up your accounts, Mint keeps track of your accounts reasonably well. But the categories could be much more user friendly. I have also found it necessary to manually update accounts on more than one occasion. The alerts are also only marginally useful to me, since they often recommend purchasing other products and services. I guess they need to have some way of generating revenue, but the upsell attempts are a bit annoying.

I am sticking with Mint for now, but may be in the market for another financial management platform that is more user friendly.

I've been a long time Mint user (since 2008).

Mint was probably the catalyst in igniting my interest in personal finance management. All my accounts organized in one easy to use experience? It was a revolutionary concept when they launched back in the day.

In recent years, other apps have come to the market with some game changing features like bill payments (Check). Mint will need to play some catchup if they want to maintain market leadership.

Mint is an outstanding website and app. It's hand down the most powerful and comprehensive personal finance manager around. It certainly has the coolest graphics! It can make your credit card transaction history look like the desktop of a NASDAQ stockbroker. I used it for a year, but then got tired of micromanaging my accounts. I personally prefer a combination of BillGuard and Manilla, but Mint is also a perfectly good option for managing your accounts.

I like the online site and mobile app. They provide useful tools to help you keep track of your money and run a budget. They do have a lack of investment tools, which Personal Capital provides, but all-in-all, a good money management website.

I've used Mint for over a year and found it to be very useful. With no work on my part, it aggregates everything from my bank accounts to my credit cards to my loans. Mint organizes my spending and purchases so I understand where my money is going, as well as get an overhead view of my finances at any time. Their mobile app is very useful on the go.

I also appreciate the alerts for account balances or when I go over budget in a spending category. I recommend Mint ... to anyone who wants an easy way to keep track of their finances. More Less
