Screenshots of official Mint.com app for Windows Phone revealed
In what is probably the biggest non-secret of the night, Mint.com has officially launched…their public beta for Windows Phone. Sure it’s not the app-app for the public to go use and manage their finances with, but it’s a sure sign that it’s coming soon. And even though people are required to sign an NDA to enter the beta, some of you folks are so darn excited you’re sending in screenshots.
Truth be told, there’s not a whole lot to the app. In the images below you can sections for your accounts, budgets, transactions, location info and even push notifications. There’s even a swanky pass-code lock to keep people from prying into your biz, should you leave your phone unattended.
A few of you seem highly impressed with the app, noting that it seems fast and your accounts all seem to be syncing up well enough.
Mint.com is a fairly popular financial management service. It was announced as coming to Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 back in June. Expected at the "end of the year", it looks like the team is keeping to their word as they will squeak it out in a few weeks. Our bet? This won’t be a long beta. This seems to be more or less some final testing before general release. Stay tuned.
Thanks, Tim, for the screenshots

I don't know how any company these days practically expects NDAs to function.
Too much social currency being handed out to others who, half the time, only want to be the first and not actually improve a service.
Anyway thanks for the knowledge
Thanks for contacting Mint. We're pleased to announce that it’s official, Mint will be available for both Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 later this year, just in time for the holidays! I understand that you wanted to test our app for Windows 8 beta. However, we haven't made a release for Beta, and currently don't know if we will have a Beta mode for Windows app. No worries, once we get some updates, we'll make sure to keep you posted. Our sincere apologies for the meantime. Best,
