Keeping an eye on
the flow of green

Based on its popular Web service, Mint’s app gives users at-a-glance summaries of their cash flow and spending habits. Log in to your online banking, investment and loan accounts through the app to get started. Although the app doesn’t have the full functionality of the Web site, it’s still great for people trying to get a handle on their finances.

Not sure if you should treat yourself to a night out? A few taps will show your purchases by category or vendor to let you know if you’ve spent too much on restaurants that month. The same goes for shopping, gifts and just about anything else you want to track.

Free, for iOS and Android.
