The easiest, fastest bill manager in the App Store. A universal app for Mac, iPhone & iPad and iPad. Use Chronicle Cloud sync to see your bills Mac on all your devices, plus even share them with a partner if you want.
If you pay bills, you need Chronicle.
Here's why: A single late payment can cost you $30 or more and cause your credit score to plummet by up to 100 points.
Chronicle reminds you to pay your bills, so you can just enter them once, and never have to worry about them again.
In addition to reminding you to pay your bills, Chronicle keeps track of all your payment history, including confirmation numbers, so you always have proof of payments.
On the Mac, the free version allows you to manage up to 5 bills.
Chronicle Pro takes things even further. Available as an in-app purchase, Chronicle Pro gives you access to all new features of Chronicle as they are updated, on Mac, iPhone and iPad. It allows you to track an unlimited number of bills, plus much more.
Here's what is currently available features in Chronicle Pro:
Forecast View & Amount to Save: See the future—see what will be due every month for a year in advance, including how much to save every month for bills that repeat less often. For example, you may have an auto insurance bill of $500 that is due every 6 months. Chronicle will calculate that you need to set aside $83.33 each month in order to have enough to pay the bill each time it is due.
Intelligent Estimated Amount Due: Helps you know how much will be due for bills that vary. Using the type of bill, your payment history, and the time of year, Chronicle will intelligently calculate an estimate of how much is due. For example, Chronicle will be able to learn if your electric bills are higher or lower in the winter, and estimate accordingly.
Monthly History & Annual Reports: See your spending month by month, and compare year-over-year spending for each month. On the Mac, you can also see spending for each month.
Chronicle Cloud: Backup your bills to the cloud, sync across all your devices, and share with a partner, spouse or business associate.
Custom Repeat Intervals: Custom repeat intervals allow you to manage bills with less common repeat intervals, and even some irregular intervals, like US Estimated Income Tax Schedules.
- New: Option to control what Chronicle does when a bill ends. The default behavior now changes a bill to never due, instead of archving.
- Fixes a potential crash when viewing “Paid Recently” section.
Ratings and Reviews
An essential app
Have used chronicle for many years. The new Chronicle Cloud is a huge advantage to avoid issues sharing info between different iCloud accounts and being able to sync much faster and accurately. The calendar integration sends me reminders and I have never missed a bill! One of my favorite things is the amazing support provided by the developer. Over the years I have emailed questions and EVERY one has been answered PROMPTLY, accurately and with honesty (a feature not yet available but coming and IT COMES). The explanation to solve any problem (though problems have been rare) is also clear, concise and has always worked. One of my two most essential apps (1Password is the other).
Love this app! It is perfect for brains like mine!
Update as of 2021: Notifications for any bills created before this year seem to no longer provide notifications?
Here is the thing...I am impatient with bells and whistles. I like things to look nice, but when something starts getting multiple moving parts that are necessary in order to have the basic function that I need, I get annoyed. I tried so many financial apps before Chronicle. All I wanted was to enter the date bills are due, be reminded when they are, and keep a logical historical record of when they were paid and how much was paid. Mint, Quickbooks, Microsoft Money, etc., etc. all are just too much for my purposes. And, having to connect my bank account to an app, especially to some of the apps whose developers I have never heard of, is NOT ok. That is never going to happen. So, Chronicle is easy to look at, simple enough to navigate, backs itself up like apps should (many do not), and keeps me on schedule for monitoring both my and my elderly mom's bills. I can even look at just her bills or my bills thanks to tags. This app is perfect. If features are added in the future, maybe those would be a great addition, but for now, I am a totally satisfied customer. The customer service has been top-notch every time I had a question as well. How many apps can boast about those last two items with their customers?
Developer Response ,
Sorry to hear about the trouble you are having with notifications. They should certainly still be working. If you're still seeing trouble, please contact us at email@example.com so we can sort out what's going wrong!
Simplicity is Best
Chronicle checks all the boxes. The only thing I wish it had was the ability to specify which checking account paid the bill.
Other than that, this is the only bill reminder app that I have found that actually keeps a historical record of when and how much was paid and if a partial payment is made, it subtracts it from the current due amount with the option to not advance the date to the next month. Perfect.
