The easiest, fastest bill manager in the App Store. A universal app for iPhone & iPad, with multitasking on iPad. Cloud sync works across all iOS devices plus Mac with the available Mac version.
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, and forget about them.
Plus, Chronicle syncs with the available Mac version, so you can view and pay your bills everywhere.
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.
New to Chronicle is the Pro version. Available as an in-app purchase, Chronicle Pro gives you access to all new features of Chronicle as they are updated.
Currently available features in Chronicle Pro:
Forecast View: See the future—see what will be due every month for a year in advance.
Amount to Save: Stop bills from sneaking up on you. Many bills don’t repeat every month: for these bills, Chronicle will calculate how much you need to set aside each month so that you have enough to pay it when it comes due. 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.
Chronicle Cloud: Backup your bills to the cloud, sync across all your iOS devices, and share with a partner, spouse or business associate.
This build contains lots of bugfixes, plus improvements for the widget. Bugs fixed include:
- Fixes a bug where notifications might appear at midnight instead of the scheduled time
- Fixes a bug where notifications might say “Pay Today” instead of “Pay Soon” for bills due soon
- Fixes a bug where notifications might appear for paydays
- Fixes a bug where Chronicle might create multiple calendars with bills
- iCloud is now disabled when Chronicle Cloud is enabled, to prevent sync conflicts
Ratings and Reviews
Best App I’ve used for Budgeting
This is a great app and has helped me stay on top of my bills as well as budget for saving and other essentials like groceries. My biggest issue right now is that it has been showing multiples of the same payment when I look in history. For instance, it is showing right now that I paid groceries 4 times. Doesn’t make the app unusable, but it is an annoyance. The other more minor issue is that it is sometimes inaccurate when it tells me how much to save for bills that are less than monthly. For instance, I have my car registration due in June, but the amount to save shows how much it would be in exactly a year rather than in 8 months.
Other than that it is a great app and has allowed me for the first time to track my bills without having to do too much legwork once everything is in it. Thanks for the app!
Love this app! It is perfect for brains like mine!
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. It), 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?
Won’t automatically mark bills as paid
I use this app in conjunction with Bills Monitor Because I like the view of Bills Monitor better (it’s so much simpler and less busy) but as a paranoid person I enjoy having a back up app. I only use this to keep myself on track with bills and not to actually integrate with accounts and pay the bills. However, in the past month, all of my bills in this app that are set to pay automatically simply won’t do so. They are all now showing up as 20 days late even though when I click on the bills, they are specifically set to pay automatically.
This is completely ruining the experience for me and rendering this app useless. I can’t delete the bills and re-enter them because then I would lose the entire history of them that I have tracked for the past few years and that is not acceptable. Because all of these allegedly unpaid bills are showing up at the top of my list, I cannot quickly open this app to see when my next actual bill is due.
Within the app, there is no easy way to contact help or support. I am finding a common theme amongst developers where they issue glitchy apps and then make it exceptionally difficult for you to actually communicate with anyone about it. I was actually considering upgrading to the pro version of this app but given the major flaws already and the inability to actually get support, I will not be wasting my money.
Developer Response ,
The auto-logging feature still works just fine, it is just off by default. All you have to do is enable it. Go to Chronicle's settings, under the general section, and turn on the "Auto Log Automatic Payments" feature.
In addition, if you ever need help, just email us at email@example.com. We usually respond within hours.
