Budgeting is easier with a mobile app.
Budget apps make managing finances a lot easier. While budget software for your home computer relieved the burden of keeping track of everything on paper, budget apps make the software portable. Now you don't have to be home to see your monthly budget and all of your accounts at a glance.
There are many features that make Mint.com's budget mobile app handy, but here are four of the most beneficial.
Mint's apps work simultaneously with smartphones and tablets
Do you know what's great about a budget app on your smartphone or tablet? Portability. Never lose sight of your money with Mint.com's budget mobile app and you will find fewer surprises every month. Better yet, how about one app on a phone and another on a tablet? They all work together.
You don't have to be on the go for the mobile app to be useful. Personal finances are of course essential for a shopping spree, but you can also monitor your accounts from the comfort of a hammock in the back yard. Wherever your mobile device goes, so does your budget.
Notifications let you know what is happening with your money
Is the invoice due? You never have to worry about missing or late making a payment because you forgot that Mint.com notifications are once set up and ready to use. You can set an alert for almost anything you need to remember, and you can also get notifications for things that you weren't aware of at all.
Notifications let you know when an account balance gets too low (or too high), when you've spent more than you budgeted, when bills are due, when one of your accounts is charging, or when there is ever anything unusual activity on an account .
Stay organized while you shop and never go over budget.
Cash transactions are not excluded from the budget party
Credit card transactions are easy to track. Shop with a card and your accounts will automatically reflect this in Mint.com software. But what if you use cash sometimes? Mint.com is smart. Cash transactions are also easy to track, but they take some time.
When spending cash, keeping your budget up to date is quick and easy by entering the transaction on-site via the mobile app. Since everything is connected, what you type in on your smartphone is instantly shown on your home computer.
Experiment to see how decisions can affect your budget
Are you thinking of making a big purchase or putting more money into the savings? Mint.com lets you experiment with decisions to see how they affect the rest of your budget. This is a no-obligation method of moving money. This can help you decide if it's a good idea.
With the help of graphs on Mint.com, you can see how the monthly savings would add up at the end of the year and what your budget would be if you bought a big ticket item to keep track of.
Know that your finances are safe with Mint.com
Your budget contains a lot of personal information. Account numbers and balances, investments, and virtually anything related to your finances can be included. However, there is no need to worry about safety. Mint.com has thought of that too.
