Mint.com has upgraded its iPhone app to free users from the tyranny of needing a desktop computer to organize their finances—but it is leaving users of older iOS operating systems behind.
The downside for some users is that the upgrade comes with a tradeoff: Mint.com will no longer support iPhones running iOS 3. The company said in its announcement the decision will make it “easier for us to utilize the latest iOS technology.”
The app continues to let users connect to their online banking accounts—more than 18,000 banks are in the Mint.com network—to track their transactions and overall financial health.
Mint.com is free, and compatible with devices running iOS 4.0 or later.
