YNAB (otherwise known as You Need A Budget) is a popular budgeting app. The latest version is now an online service and can sync with your bank accounts. However, it lacks all of the bells and whistles that Personal Capital and Mint have.
CountAbout is the only budgeting app that allows you to import from Quicken or Mint. The service allows you to easily sync your personal finances in one location, and with reporting. The downside is CountAbout lacks any advanced financial planning features.
