On an Android device, is there a way to directly add a new cash transaction without opening the Mint app?

Some android apps provide quick ways to perform certain activities without having to open the entire app.  For example:

  • From the Evernote Widget, I can pop up a small window that lets me create a new note
  • Evernote has an Intent that can be used to create a note.  A savvy user can use a tool such as Tasker to automatically populate and send that Intent to generate a note.
  • Remember The Milk's widget has a couple of different ways to create a new task via popups - one to type in the task, and one to speak it

When I spend cash or receive cash from someone, I'd like to be able to pop open a quick window to type in the amount, indicate whether it's income or an expense, enter a description, select a category, hit OK, and be done with it, without ever going fully into the Mint app.

See the attached image for an example of what I mean.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
