Founders of Mint.com and the highly popular mobile phone app Mint recently announced their debut with the Windows Phone. Previously only available on iPhones and Androids, this pocket-friendly money management service is expanding its reach.
What is Mint?
Despite its huge popularity in both the App Store and Google Play Store, many people still aren’t familiar with Mint. Essentially, Mint is a money management mobile app that uses transaction data from linked bank accounts to deliver detailed and accurate financial statements. Users can setup budgets, warnings, and even itemize spending.
Mint boasts a large array of different users, probably because of the useful features offered. Typical users include those looking to get smarter about money management, families trying to budget more accurately, people with a history of bankruptcy, people trying to understand their bankruptcy, and more. Users enjoy the app for its easy setup, sleek interface, and impressive customization features.
The Leap to Windows
While Mint will be bringing many of the same features and design over to the Windows platform, there will be some fresh changes and unique features. The Mint app team had this to say about the expansion, “Mint for Windows may have a whole new look and feel, but it’s still the Mint you know and love.”
The official release from the Mint blog described the newly placed app like this: “The Mint apps for Windows and Windows Phone provide users with live, up-to-date information about their financial accounts, bill reminders and personalized money advice right from their Start screen.” This no-doubt reassures users who have interacted with the app in the past and enjoyed its functionality.
