Budget App Research

I’m going to design a budgeting app that’s targeted towards recent college graduates trying to repay student loans and keep track of expenses. I kind of also want to include a way to use a visual tool like a pie chart to help the user construct their own budget. Or find a way to make budgeting in general more visual and easy to understand.


The top competitor I’ve been looking at is Mint, one of the few apps that actually connects to the user’s bank account to track spending and categories. This app is known as being the all-encompassing personal budgeting app, and I’d like to draw some functionality from it while paring a lot of things down to make it easier to navigate.





I want the aesthetics to be really simple, minimal, and friendly. I want it to be easy to use and I really don’t want it to look too “budgety”.
