I’ve been using mint.com for years now but every month I hate it a little bit more. It’s too big, too slow, and too buggy. But it’s solving a problem that I need solved which is a comprehensive cloud based personal finance tool that covers banking, investments, credit cards, reporting and analysis. I can’t say that their decline corresponded exactly with when Inuit bought them but… it didn’t help either.
I’ve wondered why no one is tackling this space. I try them all and they all are lacking in one key way or another. Here’s a review from the New York Times From those, I’ve been test driving BillGuard and it seems to have potential but I am not ready to switch yet. So when I read about NerdWallet I thought, based on the name, that I had another candidate. I had to search their web site high and low before I could find a summary of what they do:

Nope. Keep looking.
