Recession or no, you should always be trying to save money. Enter Mint. The popular online money-budgeting tool is now available on the smaller touchscreen, so you can check and manage all your linked financial accounts on the go. The app will also send you an e-mail, text message or real-time alert in case of suspicious activity or if you go over your budget. Rest assured, security measures are in place to deactivate access to your accounts if your iPhone is lost or stolen. The best thing about Mint is its budget-friendly cost: free.
