“I used Mint prior to Tiller, and I love the flexibility of Tiller far more. My favorite part is the way I can make my own categories and groups. I don’t have to keep ‘mandatory’ categories I don’t use. Also, no ads is a major plus. I highly recommend Tiller to anyone who doesn’t like how Mint puts you in a box.”
