    I'm trying to use Mint.com, I would use Pageonce if they supported my bank. Without at app for Mint on WP8, I'm trying to use the website but am getting the full version of the website. Does anyone know if there is a mobile web version of Mint.com?

    Nope, just web and apps, you should contact the developer and tell them you want a Windows Phone 8 app, it's the only way the app situation aka "app gap" is going to change, we have to change it. Best way is to bug them, somewhere public, like fb or twitter

    Thanks, I'll do that. I have already contacted them via this site as well.

    Yeah, they said this summer that they'd be coming, but a couple weeks ago I asked them, and the response was that it's no longer on their short term roadmap. Rattle the cage....

    Looks like they are working on it, but do not have a timeframe yet. This is what they told me.


    Me: Do you plan on providing a App for Windows Phone
    8? I would like to start using Mint, but my wife and I both have WP8 phones and
    it would be much easier to use if we have an app to use.


    Mint: And thanks for your interest in seeing Mint.com on mobile platforms besides iOS
    and Android. We periodically review the marketplace and consider support for
    any mobile platform adopted by a significant percentage of our users specially
    with Windows Phone 8. In the meantime you can access Mint.com on any mobile browser, or via SMS
    text-message: Just text ‘bal’ to shortcode ‘MYMINT (696468).

    Me: Can you please provide a time frame of when an
    app will be available? Is there a team already working on a app or is Mint
    really in the phase of just considering an app? Is there supposed to be a mobile web version of
    Mint? When I log in to the site from my Nokia Lumia 920, all I see is the full
    site which is pretty hard to use from the phone.


    Mint: I just personally did a follow up with your
    request into our engineers. They are now currently working on it and
    formulating the best resolution towards this issue. Unfortunately we cannot
    provide an ETA due to the reason that our production team is experiencing also
    a high traffic volume of inquiries and requests. Please extend your patience us we work together to add a Mint app at windows.

    Sounds like they're looking into making the mobile website compatible with WP8 rather than building a dedicated WP8 app. I guess it's still progress!

    The way I understood it was they are building an app. I'll follow up with them and ask.

    I wonder how they know when a mobile platform is "mobile platform adopted by a significant percentage of our users "...............
    And what "significant percentage" means............

    Good question. Just as poster Kevin2577 suggested it would probably help them realize if everyone would post something on the following sites.

    I would imagine it comes from various sources - direct requests through their support channels, sales (and usage) reports from the news media, and possibly even logs for mobile browsers using the Mint website.

    Here's another response.

    Good day!

    Yes our Product Team are currently working on to have an app for Windows 8 mobile platform, in line with the request of our users to have an app for Windows phone 8, however, we cannot provide you the ETA.

    Thank you very much.

    Best,
