Good news for money savvy Honeycomb or ICS tablet owners: Mint.com has launched its financial management app for 9 and 10 inch models. If you own a 7 inch tablet, you’re not quite out of luck — the app will work, though keep in mind it hasn’t been optimized for the screen size. Mint.com’s app keeps your finances – as logged from your financial accounts – at your fingertips, offering personalized budgeting options and financial tracking. What I personally like most about the app is that it automatically sends you monthly summaries of your accounts.
Although apart from some tiny adjustments to the usability of the app, it will appear practically unchanged to those familiar with it. However, it does bear good news for all tablet users. Developers are right on top of the growing Android tablet user base.
“In the next few months, Android tablets are expected to hold more than 40 percent of the market share,” said Aaron Forth, general manager of Intuit Inc.’s (Nasdaq: INTU) Personal Finance Group. “As tablet use rises, more mobile-savvy people will look for ways to manage their lives across multiple devices, so we developed our Android tablet app to bring simple money management tools to their fingertips.”
This can be read as good news for all tablet users, as the foreshadowing of developers turning their eyes towards the increasing numbers of tablet users running Android.
Surprisingly, the app is free to download (thanks Intuit!) though only currently available for users in Canada or the USA. If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to keep track of your finances, visit the Android Market via your web browser or hit up the QR below.
