The Mint mobile app is rarely updated with new features, but it’s not like it has been abandoned — it receives maintenance updates every few months. Today, though, Mint has pushed version 2.7 to the App Store which does bring more than just bug fixes.

The app’s design has been overhauled updated to harmonize with the iOS 7 motif and colour palette. The block color of the charts contrasts beautifully with the baby blue accents of the toolbar controls.

Unfortunately, the icon looks less than stellar on your home screen. It doesn’t do justice to the design of the app itself. The update also adds the ability to tweak pending transactions and brings Mint’s Trends feature to mobile for the first time. Trends plots relationships (such as spending over time) as easy-to-parse charts to portray a general overview of your spending habits.

The Mint app can be downloaded for free from the App Store.

  1. The icon for this app is so horrifically ugly (and black!), that I wouldn’t even consider downloading it.

    I don’t know why so many app designers forget about the icon. It’s the doorway to the app and probably the single most important visual element.

    It’s not just small developers too, eBay, Evernote, ComicZeal, and lots of other high profile companies have intensely ugly, jarring, high contrast icons for their apps. The biggest mystery to me is why in an all pastel, mostly light or white UI, would anyone go for an all black icon?

    • I agree. The mint looks weird. Not to mention the name of the app it mint.com lmao that is terrible, just call it mint. Geez. So it’s gonna be sitting in a folder because of this reason.

  2. This is pretty awesome for ipad. I wish it was just a bit smarter in the in the uncatagorized pie chart. But it knows how much I spent during the month and that’s pretty awesome. I just had to get over the fact you have to give them your bank password. That’s a little crazy.

  3. I’ve been begging for a new icon for at least a year. Typical, they replace ugly with uglier.
