My favorite personal finance website, Mint.com, has made some pretty cool updates. The new planning tab looks pretty neat. Click on any screen-shot to enlarge it. Here are a few:
The budget screen has been totally reformatted. It also allows you to create a multi-month budget. For example, if you spend $500 per year on movies and DVDs, you can set that budget to start over annually, rather than $83 per month. You can also add a “catch all” everything else budget category.
The site also offers multi-step authentication. This will correct many of the connection errors people have had with Capital One 360 (formerly ING Direct), US Bank, and others. (This was pre-written and this feature may be rolled out in a few days) Here is what the new screen looks like:
Finally, the homepage no longer houses the budget controls, those moved to the new planning tab. The new budgeting feature still rolls out to the homepage in a nice, compact widget:
Congrats to the Mint team for another great update. They are slowly fulfilling all of the requests of their users. I am running out of things to complain about!
