Mint, which Intuit bought for $170 million in 2009, is designed to help users keep track of spending and budgeting. It automatically imports data from bank, credit card and investment websites, but does not actually control anything -- it only downloads transactions, to lower the risk of security breaches.
Amongst the new features in version 2.0:
NEW FEATURES FOR IPAD
● Easy-to-understand, multi-touch graphs show you where your money is going so you get a clear picture of your spending and your net worth.
● Redesigned overview screen, so you get a quick snapshot of your finances and latest alerts, bill reminders and advice.
● Enter cash and pending transactions so you have the most accurate view of your spending.
● Get a detailed view of your transactions.
● View your data even without a wireless connection.
For the security conscious, the Mint app can be locked separately from the iPad or iPhone, and if the device is lost, access can be disabled from the Mint website.
