Intuit (INTU - Get Report), the longtime tax prep software provider to small businesses, continues to push into mobile for new customer growth. Mint, which allows users to manage each aspect of their finances from their smartphone, is a big part of that strategy.
Once Mint users download their bank, credit card and other account information at Mint.com (the site uses bank-level encryption), the app displays expenses in categories like restaurants, groceries, and health and fitness. While it's a little weird seeing the entirety of your household income and every cent spent in the palm of your hand, we liked going to one place to set up bill due-date alerts.
You can also set spending goals and receive notifications if you're over-budget for the month. The only functions missing on the app are the ability to display data in pie charts and custom graphs and suggestions about how to save your money, which are all offered on Mint's website.
