  1. I like Yodlee because yo can have access to your data via their API. I have tried Mint but I'm not sure they allow you to do that. the average Joe then Mint can be for you but if you are a developer or you want to automate your business tracking then you should use Yodlee.

  2. That sounds pretty cool, although I haven't heard about Yoodle yet. I think I should give it a try, it seems to be a really useful service. Thanks for this great review and for the inspiration!

  3. This was a really lame article. It mentioned a lot of good thigns about mint and mentioned a couple minor annoyances with miny. However it didn’t mention anything about Yodlee at all. Like how everyone hates the version 10 interface and all of its other shortcomings.

    Is Mint perfect? Heck no. But it’s the best option out there once you learn to work around it shortfalls. There are a few minor things that Mint could fix (if they had anyone actually working on their system) to make it a home run. For now it’s probably a double. Sucks that they don’t care to update it or fix the bugs any more.

    I actually started a blog to compare the two but never really got very far into it.

      I have another article dedicated 100% to Yodlee and why best article. It's included in the relevant posts. You should site the reasons you feel mint is better (in the comments section)

  4. Mint is hands-down best tool IMHO. But, I now will check Yodlee. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I have used Mint and Yodlee. Everything in this article is spot on. The problem with Yodlee for me has been how extremely slow the interface is. It does appear to be more accurate. The best thing which I have now resorted to is mvelopes. The reports aren't quite as nice but it is quick and easy. The support is instant when you need it which makes the 10.00 a month I pay worth it to me.

  6. We' d love to join the conversation on this, .. one of our partners (a not for profit credit counseling agency) did a video comparing us (Planwise) to mint a few months back. Check it out here .. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ztqh8G97V0g – while we are not trying to compete as a 'budgeting tool' we think our approach gets around a lot of the issues cited here (complex, time consuming)

    We're about to implement a whole new range of capability so keen to know more about the cons of existing tools and the gaps from guys at the front line

    I've used mint before. I liked it at first, but then it was too complicated for me. Not the actions itself, but the things I had to do in order for it to work for me. When I used it, you couldn't even budget months in advance, which was too bad.
