It’s hard to argue with 7 million people. I mean, you can argue and disagree with them if you want, but you’ll just end up on the losing side of an argument that you probably should have looked a little differently anyway. Mint.com’s FREE money app for Android has been going strong for quite a while now and you’ll be hard pressed to find a user that doesn’t think highly of it.
Simply put: The Mint money app for Android is one of the best, if not the best, FREE way to manage your money from your phone or tablet.

“App works great and the new tablet features are awesome! Best financial app, no doubt.”
“Love this app very simple to use and shows things in detail…. I love it on my PC but on my tablet it could use some improvement like adding the bill payment alerts adding a category for income other types of loans. I also tried to add an account and couldn’t do it. I had to do it on my PC. It also closes unexpectedly some times.”
We keep going back to this point on this blog; we love apps that advertise a function and do it near flawlessly, especially if that app is FREE. Android has a lot of Finance and Money apps in its coffers but as far as “FREE”, Mint takes the cake. Does the app have hang-ups? Sure it does, but those are constantly being worked out by the developer. It’s free and works great 99% of the time. Great app for Android devices and your desktop.
