Chronicle - Bill Management
By LittleFin LLC
Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
If you pay bills, you need Chronicle. It gives you the peace of mind of never having to worry about whether you paid a bill again.
*** Syncs with iOS via iCloud ***
Even if you use another finance application for general finance, you need Chronicle. One late payment can wreak havoc on your credit score, leading to higher interest rates and denied loans-- in short, completely affecting your financial life.
That's why you need Chronicle. Chronicle will remind you when your bills are due, even when it isn't running. And in just a few minutes a month, you can handle everything related to paying your bills.
• Never forget a bill -- get reminded when your bills are due with alerts that can be synced to your iPhone and across all your Macs, even when Chronicle isn't running.
• Easily pay your bills online using Chronicle's integrated browser, or your default browser.
• Keep proof of all your payments -- store confirmation numbers and receipts right in Chronicle, so you always have proof of your payments.
• Get reminders in your notification center and put bills on your calendar. Chronicle can remind you via notification center on Mountain Lion, and on all Macs, can add your bills to your calendar so you can visually see when they are due.

- Fixes a bug in the display of February calendar, where February appeared missing a week.
Very simple, very productive
I don’t even use it for everything for which I could. I simply have my core bills like my mortgage, car, insurance, anything quarterly, credit cards, and anything annually. It has more function within each bill, like keeping up with the balance, but I don’t even get to that detail. I use it along with YNAB (You Need a Budget) and the two together go hand-in-hand very well. Today, January 26, 2015, with all the first of February bills coming due soon, it became very evident to me the value of Chronicle. Having budgeting software like YNAB is vital for me, I have the bad habit of having my eye on my budget for a few days and then getting my eye off of it; Chronicle has proven to be very, very effective on helping me refocuse quickly.
Chronicle works, but needs some work
I was an early adopter of Chronicle years ago and its nice to see the many improvements in the overall design, features, sync, etc. It had a lot of problems early on with frequent crashes, losing information, etc. so after reading the reviews I thought I would give it another try.
I’ve had minor problems on my Mac saving the settings or preferences like due dates, reminders, available income, etc. So I have to quit out of Chronicle, then redo the settings or preferences again in order for them to be saved. I also had another problem with archived bills. When a bill was archived, the sync worked and no longer showed the bill on my iOS devices, but when the bill was unarchived, it no longer synced or reappeared on my iOS devices, which forced me to reset the sync on my Mac.
It would also be a nice feature if Chronicle could extend the available income beyond just the current month. Some of us have fluctuating cash flows and Chronicle would be a good way for me to see realistic balances based on my projected inflows and outflows for extended months.
If the developers can work out the minor flaws, streamline the UI (too many to mention), and add some features, this would be a five star app.
This is the kind of app I want
I originally bought this app directly from the developer and I’ve had the opportunity to contact him from time to time. His response has always been super rapid and very helpful. I liked when LittleFin introduced Dropbox syncing to the iOS version and now that their App Store version has iCloud synching, I decided to buy it again. I’ve never done that before. For me, the functionality of Chronicle and the super support from LittleFin makes this the kind of app that I want.
