Mint, the web-based personal finance manager, has finally come to the iPad.
Mint for iPad, now available in the iOS App Store, brings most of the website’s bill tracking and analytics features to the tablet. The app lets users access their financial data, analyze spending trends, get budget alerts and read tips for better managing finances.
The app’s home screen allows users to dig deeper into their spending by moving through the charts. The iPad is especially suited for this type of consumption experience, Intuit’s GM for Mint Aaron Forth says. It also includes a simple feature for searching through spending history.
The Mint iPad app also lets users add their expenses on-the-go. Purchases made with cash can’t be tracked automatically by Mint, but the app has a section for typing in these expenses so users can really get a full picture of their finances.
Mint, acquired by Intuit in 2009, boasts nearly 7 million users. It now tracks approximately $1 trillion in financial transactions and another half a trillion in loans and assets. Intuit also recently released a new version of its Quicken personal finance software that integrates many of the design principles that defined Mint.
