How long have us Android users been waiting for Mint.com to release their popular personal finance app for our handsets? Well it doesn’t really matter anymore because this one is live in the market now. It has all of what you’d expect from its iPhone brethren (account balances, recent transactions, and budgeting tools), and throws in a few awesome Android exclusive features such as transaction searching, a Mint.com widget, and live folders for quick access to financial information.

The app provides password-protection to help keep your now-centralized financial info safe, and if your phone is lost or stolen access to your sensitive data through the app can be disabled remotely via Mint’s website.

If you are a Mint user or have been waiting for a killer personal finance app for your Android phone, this app is definitely one you’ll want to check out. I’ll remain cautious and rely on old fashioned ways of tracking my money, however. You’ll need a Mint.com account if you don’t have one already.
