New Mobile Offering Lets Consumers Track Spending, View Account Balances Anywhere, Anytime

Mountain View, Calif., May 3, 2010 – Android mobile phone users can now manage their money on the go with a new, free application from Mint.com (www.mint.com), the leading online personal finance service. The application, available for immediate download from the Android Market, lets Mint.com users access a complete snapshot of their financial picture and manage their finances anytime, anywhere.

“We’ve built a great financial tool for Android users, which expands our mobile solutions to even more users,” said Aaron Patzer, general manager and vice president of Intuit Inc.’s (Nasdaq: INTU) Personal Finance Group and founder of Mint.com. “Mobile users check their account information frequently to make informed spending decisions. Expanding the number of Mint mobile apps means more people are armed with the budgeting and account information they need to save and do more with their money.”

The new application is the latest in a series of mobile offerings that give Mint.com’s more than 3 million users complete and convenient on-the-go access to their personal finances. The application joins the award-winning iPhone app and Mint’s mobile messaging features.

Android-Specific Features

Consumers can simply create a free account at www.mint.com, or use their existing account to access the new Android operating system features. These include:

  • OS Search: Easily search for and find recent transactions, anytime, anywhere.
  • Mint.com widget: Access a snapshot of overall cash flow in real-time.
  • Android Live folders: Get financial updates on the phone’s home screen without launching the Mint.com application.

In addition to the new Android-specific features, users will have access to the key features that have made Mint.com’s iPhone application a favorite. These features let consumers see real-time account balances, check recent transactions; compare their spending against their monthly budgets, and edit transaction details.

The password-protected application provides exceptional data security. If an Android phone is lost or stolen, users can immediately disable access from the Mint.com website.

The Mint.com application is available for Android OS versions 1.5, 1.6, 2.0 and 2.1. More information about the Mint.com Android application is available at www.mint.com/features/android.
