Mint discontinues its Windows Phone app

There's some bad news today if you're a fan of using the Mint app to keep track of your finances. The company has confirmed that it has discontinued its Windows Phone app, marking the final nail in the coffin. Here's the explanation from the Mint team:

We will be discontinuing support and development for the Mint Windows Phone mobile app.We've promised to hold ourselves to the highest standard of quality in our products, and strongly believe that shifting our efforts to the Mint Web, iOS and Android applications will help us deliver above and beyond that promise. There's so much about the Windows Phone app that we love - and it's hard for us to say goodbye to it - but we are confident that this change will help you get even more out of Mint.

Oddly enough, the Mint app just went universal across Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.1 in July, so it's odd that it's being discontinued just a few months later. If you're still planning on being a Mint faithful however, the Mint team is quick to point out that you can keep using the service on the web.

Thanks to @jshed79, @erchew, and everyone else for the oodles of tips!
