Mint.com optimizes app for Android tablets
Financial service Mint.com have announced a new, tablet-friendly version of their Android application. Designed with 9 and 10 inch tablets in mind, the app takes advantage of the fragments (separate panels) within Android 3.0 and above. It’s said that the app will work on smaller tablets like the Kindle Fire and Galaxy Tab (7) however it’s not going to look as good as it truly can. According to TechCrunch the new tablet client is almost all superficial stuff and not much has been done to the functionality of the app. Most notably the Mint.com application has some usability tweaks and font changes, or, the stuff that makes tablet apps look great.
