Mint.com is a free web-based personal financial management service for the US and Canada. Mint brings all your financial accounts together online, automatically categorizes your transactions, lets you set budgets and helps you achieve your savings goals.
- Online only. Nothing near the fuller accounting functions of good bookkeeping software. Use a spreadsheet or even a ledger book for better features. Generally, stay away from Intuit's monopoly of US financial software if you can.
- Mint has no double ledger functionality, it's too easy for account totals to disagree.
- It only works in the US and Canada and offers very little functionality outside online banking, e.g. it doesn't support cash accounting or other, more advanced functionality.
