I love looking for new mobile apps. A recent favorite of mine is Mint for financial organization. Using Mint, you can keep track of your checking and savings accounts, set budgets, get alerts, categorize your finances, track your investments, and see your credit score. You make one account and it syncs between all of your devices.
Mint is awesome because it has a simple layout that makes it easy to check all your financial information at once. I used to hate checking and organizing my finances. It was always an overwhelming process. When I got Mint, everything became a lot quicker and less intimidating.
I think Mint is an especially good resource for college students. A lot of us are just starting to get serious about our finances and Mint walks you through that process. It comes with a blog that gives financial advice of all sorts. For example, they had a post a few days ago called, “An Education in College Savings” that talks about some of their resources for students. A couple of weeks before that, they had a post highlighting the best finance books for college students.
I find Mint extremely helpful and I love that I can keep it on my phone. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get more organized financially. It helped me a lot.
As a student athlete it can be difficult to get a job during school. So coming into school i only have a set amount of money to live on, with no income coming in. So this app sounds like it could be a useful tool to budget what money i have. Nice find.
This would absolutely be a great app for college students, especially because it walks you through the processes and encourages it’s users to get more involved in finance or at least know more about their own personal finances. This would also be great for a new business owner in keeping up with payments and such.
College is a busy time in our lives, and financials being in correct order and a simple drawn out way is essential. There is no reason to waste hours hunting financials and understanding its complex structures. A simple access app like this would be a great download for all college students.
Mint is simple, easy to use, and especially helpful for the entrepreneur. The pain of managing finances is something nobody wants to endure, especially if you’re a busy college student or businessman/businesswoman. I think it’s awesome how we have access to this amazing technology that turns something so tedious such as personal finance into a simple and easy task.
As a busy college student, I can see how using this app would be extremely beneficial! I don’t feel that I have time to pay attention to all of my finances on top of my busy class schedule. This app would not only save time but also keep all of my records organized. I am going to look into this. Great find!
Fantastic concept! I’ve always hated organizing money but after taking a look at mint I see the simplicity and potential fun in keeping track of my finances. Ill be sure to download and start using mint to run my finances from here on out. Thanks for a great post!
Eventually I will pick one of the many great financial management apps available for entrepreneurs to take control of my budget. I will certainly consider this one. Do you know if it has the ability to link itself to my online bank account?
It does! In my opinion, that’s the best thing about it. It keeps all of your online accounts in one place.
