Yep I was getting tired of Mint‘s iPhone app on my iPad. Hitting the 2x button and seeing it all pixelated, wishing they would come out with an app for just the iPad. Well they read my mind and came out with one just for me!
Ok it is available for everyone and if you haven’t upgraded or installed it you really should. While I planed on doing a cool review and such it seems some one else read my mind and did it already. So I didn’t want to steal her thunder and do another so soon so best bet is to head on over to Carrie at Carefulcents.com and read her post Mint.com New App for iPad Guide She does a great job with her write up (probably better than i would have done… hmmm nah)
I will say I really do like the new graphs and overview it does right there when you open it. As well as the reminders it gives you on the opening screen. With that being said there are some minor items I wish they would change or add to it.
For instance on the site I like the fact that it shows me my income budget, but neither of the apps do this, just expense items. I also liked on the iPhone app the Cashflow box. In the iPad app it is now ‘Net Income’ and you have to scroll to find it then tap to get it. Something like this is important to me and should be more readily available. On that note I would like to see a Net Worth overview somewhere as well.
Lastly it did take me awhile to find the Account balances as I typically view my iPad horizontally and by default it is then hidden in the lower right corner. I didn’t know to scroll that lower box as there is no indication for this. I finally figured it out when I turned the iPad vertical and there it was. I was cursing mint until then (sorry mint)
Overall though it is a vast improvement over the iPhone app on the iPad and I welcome upgrades as I know they will happen. If you haven’t tried mint.com you can read my review at Tracking your Financial Status with Mint.com i highly recommend them!

Have you tried the new min.com iPad app? What do you think?
