Mint.com coming to Windows Phone 8
80

It's official as Mint.com plans on Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 apps later this year

Good news for all of those who have been waiting for an official Mint.com app, as it looks like the popular Quicken-like service is coming to both Windows Phone and Windows later this year. The announcement comes via their support forums from an “official” responder earlier today.

Mint.com is considered by many to be the foremost financial planner service and with apps on iOS and Android, Windows Phone was left holding the bag. Indeed last we checked, back in March, Mint.com was filed under “no plans yet”, despite a constant barrage of users requesting it.

However now, the company seems to have had a change of mind as a representative named Jami has posted the following in their forums:

“We heard you loud and clear, and now it’s official, Mint will be available for both Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 later this year, just in time for the holidays!  Stay tuned for more details!”

Not a bad deal and although we’re sure many of you would prefer the app to come out sooner than later, at least it is now officially on the roadmap for our respective platforms. Hopefully other services who are still no-shows will also have a change of heart.

Woot! Did not expect this at all. Thank you Windows 8 for allowing wp8 to ride in your coattails. :)

One more official app inthe bag 

89caps says:

I would rejoice, but I was so unhappy with their "not enough demand" responses that I say "ABOUT TIME!"

Jeffrey Fox says:

True true, I made it a habit of pushing for a WP8 app with Mint on a somewhat regular basis. Hell, I was pushing for WP7 when I got my first HTC Trophy. I am very excited though, its going to be awesome to be able to access Mint on my Lumia 928, the Mint.com website is godaaawfuuul to use on a mobile phone.

Daylife says:

Hell yes!!!!!

Tyradius says:

The only app I've actively wanted. Sure other apps are good n all, but this is the one I needed/really wanted.

PittaMan says:

About goddamn time...

PeterFnet says:

FANTASTIC! Better late that never, but still a bitter taste in my mouth.

MrDiamondJ says:

It definitely feels like the release of Windows 8 was the milestone that everybody was waiting for. Lo and behold, eight months after its official release we're seeing a deluge of WP8 apps. This is exactly why sharing the WP8 kernel was a smart move.

doomtuba says:

YES YES YES!

Nice unexpected surprise.

cool8man says:

They announced this and a ton of other apps at the BUILD keynote today. Was surprised WPCentral and other sites didn't report it. Guess only devs were watching today.

cbshd says:

Yeah, I wanted to see if someone had a list, since most of them, they specifically mentioned Win8 AND WP8.
 

cashcar1979 says:

Nice...hopefully Wells Fargo gets off their lazy asses now too

RyanAMG says:

Time to start bugging Wells Fargo again. I will call email and tweet. I bug them about once a month. Maybe it should be every week :)

Stevied1991 says:

I've been emailing them also, although I do not tweet, so I cannot do that.

DWTrump says:

Ain't that the truth. Time Warner Cable needs to get their ish in gear, too.

. . . . And by holidays, I am sure they mean US Independence Day ;]

stardog1978 says:

With this we now need the local banking apps.

jmshub says:

This is a step in the right direction. Many local banks (including mine) web portals and online banking apps are built by Intuit, the makers of Mint. If Intuit finally hops on the WinPhone train, we can see Mint, Square, and many online banking presense systems.

RyanAMG says:

Square is owned by the guy that made twitter. Do you mean GoPayment?

jMawl says:

I just want USAA banking.

I miss my USAA app.

MethodGT says:

USAA didn't even need to pull their app. Who cares if you had to go into your camera roll later and manually delete the photos of the check you were depositing. I'm still angry with them.

Darkwolf70 says:

+1!!!! Now USAA!

THE_Lawnboy says:

Hear! Hear! Come on USAA.

Mine still works. Just don't uninstall I guess.

jMawl says:

I never had a chance to uninstall...because I never had a chance to install :(

Mikey Quix says:

Yes! So this is all we need to do! I sent them two e-mails requesting the app on wp8. And they answered so incredibly and nicely! And now this article officially announcing the app! This week cannot get any better lol.

wolfgangjr says:

Hell just froze over.

this is one of the few apps i have been waiting for, awesome, thanks mint.

jonathanrn says:

Good one getting Mint! But "just in time for the holidays"?!? Sorry to complain, but I'm fairly certain they could get it done faster than that!

spaulagain says:

Company's (like mine) usually plan and schedule projects over a years period. So while they may decide to do it today, it may not fit in the schedule/budget for six more months.

At least they got on board.

jonathanrn says:

That's good to know. Thanks for the info! I too am glad they are on board.

Graven Pshya says:

YESSSSS! This is the one app I really really want on WP!

tribexx says:

This was my number one app request.
Now on to beg the others:
PNC Bank
US Bank
SouthWest Airlines
 

Shad0wguy says:

This makes me happy. All that's needed now is a capital one app and I won't be missing anything from android.

With the growth in Windows 8 devices, I am sure it will be here soon enough

Or switch banks ;-)

RyanAMG says:

There is still hope for intuit :)

stephen_az says:

Do you realize how silly it sounds to refer to.a service offered by Intuit as a Quicken like servuce? That is the equivlent of refering to Skydrive as a Microsoft like service....
 

frett says:

I thought the same thing, although a lot of people don't know that Intuit bought them a few years ago.
I was actually kind of bummed when that happened. Intuit sucks.  I also felt the same way when CapitalOne took over ING Direct.  Products and services almost ALWAYS get worse when they're assimilated.

The "apps" thing is rapidly becoming a non-issue. Exciting time to be in the Windows ecosystem.

safesax2002 says:

Now if Fiserv would develop an WP8 app....

bbennett40 says:

Wow! I really thought this would never happen. I am truly impressed.

dlrohm says:

What a bunch of dbags...

Fantastic! One of the two apps I really want on WP. I'm happy Mint that they changed their mind on WP support, and it's nice to see a Windows 8 version coming as well.

buggyglint says:

Cool, I'm really happy to see these big apps finally being brought over to our OS! Now all I need is a TD Canada Trust app!

aceoforder says:

YES!!! Finally hahaha

blackfire says:

Great! I've been waiting for this since day one of WP7. Been a user of Mint for a long time and hated having to try the web version on the phone or tablet. Even wrote them a few times asking for WP support. I tried other services, and they were not as complete as Mint, so this is just great news to me. Don't care if it took a while, this is another sign of Windows Phone's momentum. So many companies said they were going to support Windows Phone when there were enough users, and seeing many of these official apps coming to WP makes me feel we are getting there.

RayWP7 says:

Wow, I like pageonce or check-whatever-it-is now but the functionality just isnt the same. This will be something to look out for...

iGeorge23 says:

THIS IS HOW WE DO IT.....this is how we do it...na NA NA NA...this is how we do it!

pjsaggie says:

Too late. Already deleted my account with them and pageonce/check. Mobilligy for account/bill mgmt.

cnshenj says:

Last time I used Mint (a year ago?) it didn't have the ability to get bill information from utility companies and show the actual payment due. Both Manilla.com and Check.me (formerly PageOnce) do that. Check.me has an app for WP (still named PageOnce and hasn't been updated since it was released) that I've been using.
Does Mint now support real bill info? Or it still asks you to manually set a reminder date for each different type of bill?

mab664 says:

I love pageonce (check) but they need to update this f*%king app!

trmnrs says:

Finally! I've used Pageonce and I really wasn't too fond of the experience...just all over the place and really unorganized. Hopefully Mint.com delivers.

donebrasko says:

Is there a mint alternative

lubbalots says:

They've seen its popularity. Now its time for them to get on the wagon.

jlynnm350z says:

All them people who doubted now want to jump on board. I feel like saying "piss off " but we need the big names. Just leaves a bitter taste in your mouth, doesn't it? To forgive is to forget I guess. Just remember who was on board from the start, that's all.its like winning the lottery, now all of a sudden everyone comes out of the woodwork. They all will follow, except Instagram. They will always have a bug up there ass. . .

Yaaaayy!!!! :) finally!

isnoozu says:

Thank you Intuit. My family's financial health thanks you.

atkulp says:

So happy!!!

Zer0fluX says:

I'm so happy about this! Excellent news!

THE_Lawnboy says:

Glad Mint is coming, but I liked the Pageonce (now Check) iOS app better. It had matured very nicely - the billing function was superb. I would really like to see a WP8 version of the Check app of the same caliber as iOS's.

jevrock says:

Next on my list is a Directv update, Amazon Prime Video and Flixster Ultraviolet and I'm a Happy Man!!!
 

swizzlerz says:

Can't wait. Ill start to take it seriously. I use quicken. The parent company..

NOt available in INDIA :(

mprebich says:

Too late! I was happy using Mint online and the beta Money Thyme on WP. But unfortunately, that never was released officially. Since I have switched to Pageonce (Check) online and WP. Account login and access is much more stable than mint.

Chris_Kez says:

Brace yourselves for all the complaints about how this app offers fewer features than the iOS version.

Witness says:

About time. Okay, I will finally create an account on Mint when it is released.
