For those of who are too lazy to keep track of our finances, Mint was a godsend when it hit iOS and Android. Now Windows 8 users can finally keep track of their finances the easy way as well.
Mint announced today that its personal finance app is now available on Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 starting today. Much like the apps on iOS and Android, you'll be able to connect Mint with your bank account to keep track of all your purchases. It's also handy at chastising you for spending more money on video games than on food.
“More than 13 million users rely on Mint to help them save toward their financial goals and guide them to a better financial future,” said Vince Maniago, group product manager for Mint. “By expanding our mobile personal finance offerings, we’re providing Windows and Windows Phone users with a custom-built Mint experience that helps them take control and manage their money anywhere, anytime.”
Here's what the app on Windows 8 looks like:
Aside from the basic app functionality that you will find in any version of Mint, the app on Windows 8 supports unique Windows functionality, like LiveTiles. That means you'll be able to see select financial information from the app on your homescreen without ever having to open said app.Windows Store]
