Whether the complexity of a full on accounting system, or the popular iBank or Quicken, or any of the simple check writing apps, choices abound. Some of us just don’t have that much money. But we do have bills. For that, there’s Bills To Pay.
It’s the app that simply reminds you when to pay a bill.
Pay The Piper. Now!
I like apps with a comfortable learning curve which makes the app instantly usable. That pretty much sums up what you get with Bills To Pay.
You could put a list of your bills to pay in Calendar (formerly known as iCal), but there’s just no fun in having a nagging reminder follow you all over the planet.
Bills To Pay resides in the Mac’s Menubar. Click it to reveal what’s due, how much, and when.
If you’re late on a bill payment, Bills To Pay displays that in red. When you’ve paid a bill, simply click the Paid button.
There’s no accounting system to learn. No entries or calculations. It’s all automagical.
Simple enough, right?
Bills To Pay has only a few features but they’re exactly what you need to get bills paid on time (except for the money).
Bills to Pay uses iCloud so it can sync reminders nicely between a desktop iMac and a MacBook.
Adding a bill to pay is as easy as clicking the Menubar icon, giving the bill a name, selecting a day, and you’re done.
However, it’s smart enough to know how to track weekly and monthly bills.
Notifications for overdue bills, or bills due soon, can be customized and pop up onscreen Notification Center style.
Bills To Pay won’t keep track of your money or your stocks and bonds, and won’t double as a checkbook, but it does remind you to pay what you need to pay before the bill is due and will nag you a bit if payment is late.
