Overall rating: 4/5 starsIf you’re looking for an app to help you budget your finances and keep track of your expenses, look no further than Mint. This app has helped me track all of my transactions and categorize them so I could easily see where my money was spent. It also offers tips on how to raise your credit score and where to find deals and offers for credit cards.

Another useful thing Mint does is track all your upcoming bills. In very few, simple steps, you can add a bill automatically or manually, and it will send you reminders to pay the bill in either push notifications or an email. You’ll also receive notifications for when your balance is low or if a transaction doesn’t seem quite right in your account. Mint is very efficient in making sure it takes care of its users, their money, and safety.

You can also set goals in the app. For example, if I only want to spend $30 in the food category one month, I can set that, and it will let me know when I get close to that limit. It also gives you an easy-to-read trend graph that sorts out your transactions.

Overall, Mint is a simple and easy app to use. All you do is link your bank account to the app, and it gathers the data it needs. The app is very secure, using fingerprints, codes, and passwords to access it, so you know your info is well protected.

I like this app because, as a teenager in high school, it gives me a different perspective on where I spend my money. I could do without the many offers to apply for more credit cards, though!
