In the race to release app for iPad, the four giants – Facebook, Google Docs, Mint and LinkedIn were in the running. Out of these Facebook was the quickest to release it’s very own app for iPad. Following in the footsteps of Facebook, Mint has decided to release its very own app for iPad.
For all those who don’t know what Mint is, Mint is by far the BEST finance managing service available! If you haven’t used it yet, there no better time than now to start!
In a tweet posted October 11th, Mint mobile designer Jaanus Kase said “the Mint iPad app is nearly done and will be out very shortly.” He also stated on Mint’s satisfaction forums that the next Mint app will be universal (both for iPhone and iPad) and that it will require iOS 5, which is one of the reasons the company could not release it until now.
People with iPhone 3G units, the new Mint app will not work since the maximum iOS on that device is 4.2.1. However, Kase states that Mint will continue to support its current iOS app for those running iOS 4.
Now, LinkedIn and Google Docs must get your acts together, “ball is in your court!!”
