Mint, one of my personal favorite finance apps, has gotten a pretty useful upgrade in the Google Play Store. New features have been added for both phones and tablets, with the former receiving a much needed boost in its ability to manage budgets. Specifically, adding and editing budgets has now been enhanced on the phone side of things. It’s something that should have been done a long time ago but, as usual, it’s better late than never.

Another big change for phones is an upgraded UI. The UI now fits Android 4.0’s new design guidelines so those of us on modern versions of Android will have a prettier, faster and more efficient experience. The tablet app already had these changes so there was no need to do anything on that front.

Other changes include an updated widget for the phone version, the ability to split transactions for both versions, and the ability to see your net income over time in the tablet version. This 6.2 megabyte upgrade is waiting for you in the Google Play Store now, so be sure to head over there to get the goods. And if you’re wondering what this Mint business is all about be sure to head to the company’s website to see how it aims to help you keep tabs on the status of your finances.
