Mint.com Personal Finance App

This one consistently makes tech writers Best Of and Editor’s Choice lists, and for good reason; it does the most without being confusing or accident prone.

It even has bill alerts. Mint Personal Finance also allows you to track investments, 401k info and more. See some screenshots and download it here.
