It’s safe, secure and easy to keep your personal finances organized. You can easily synch across all your devices—smartphone, tablet, and computer.

How to use it:

Mint allows an easy way to keep track of all your personal finances, even if you have multiple accounts. Many people struggle with keeping to their budget and this app gives you in the moment access to all your information so you don’t overspend. Individuals with ADHD struggle with most detailed tasks, including managing their money, which can lead to expensive consequences. Through the use of new technology, like the ubiquitous smartphone, people who struggle to manage their money will always have access to crucial account information and easy budget planning tools. Adolescents and young adults should be encouraged to use personal finance tools, such as smartphone apps, in order to form strong habits for later adulthood when they will need to manage more complex and varied financial accounts.
