Chronicle - Bill Organizer 4+
Track bills & subscriptions
- Offers In-App Purchases
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.
- Improvements to Chronicle Cloud sync. Note: this update may sign you out of your Chronicle Cloud account. Be sure to double check and sign back in, if so.
- Improved: Toolbar will now show whether your Chronicle Cloud account is signed in our not. When not signed in, it will show a cloud with a slash through it.
- Fixed: Amount due might not appear correctly when first editing a bill, and might not reset to zero on the edit screen for bills with a variable amount due.
Ratings and Reviews
Nice bill reminder app.
I’ve been using this app for several years. I’m an old stubborn guy that still has his bills come in the mail. Hey, I’m old. I do pay them online but like the paper bills as a reminder. Sometimes my email bill notices go into my junk folder. So I like using the good old USPS as a backup. However, every now and then, even the USPS loses a bill or it’s delivered late. Such was the situation last month when they tried to forward my car payment. While the payment notice went again in my spam folder. The letter was finally delivered 10 days after the payment was due with a yellow sticker stating “unable to forward, return for carrier review”. You would think they would pull the sticker off. Anyway. I use this app to insure I am aware of when all my bills are due.
It Works perfectly.
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?

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 firstname.lastname@example.org so we can sort out what's going wrong!
EDIT: Nope. The iCloud sync stopped working right after the paid “optional” subscription came out. No thanks.
I was waiting for Apple Watch support and also the Touch ID support for quite some time. Apple Watch app could be native for faster updating and access which is a slight negative but some progress is better than no progress. My biggest want for the longest time for the iOS version was getting the Touch ID entry support. This was literally the last app I had that didn’t see that update, it took an entire year to get it, but its here and I love it. Syncing is clunky at times, however it’s better than nothing. I’ve switched between Dropbox and iCloud frequently because eventually one stops working and there’s really not a notification this has stopped working unless you see that bills you have paid have gone “unpaid” on another version even after restarting the app or hitting the sync button and nothing happens. Stocking with them though as this app keeps me on top of my bill pay game an works well with my workflow of making sure I don’t fall behind with a payment. Makes that grueling task a little more bearable.

Sorry about the trouble you are having. iCloud sync has not been changed or disabled, it is still used by many thousands of people. If you're having trouble, please contact our support, we'd be happy to help.
