Mint

Mint is one of the oldest and best-known budgeting apps. Owned by Intuit, the same company that makes Quickbooks and TurboTax, Mint offers an array of features to help you track and manage your money from a giant list of banks, credit card issuers, brokerages, lenders and other financial institutions. It comes with a wide range of features, but its most useful has always been its budget tools, which lie front and center when you log in. Mint automatically categorizes transactions from linked credit and debit cards and tracks them against a budget you can tweak and customize to your needs. Get alerts when you go over budget, and track by category or look at your overall cash flow to get a well-rounded picture of where your money goes each month.
