I like how the app lets you save receipts for your bill payments. That was a big reason I bought the app. So, I went back and added all the receipts I've kept from paying my bills in the past. This is when I ran into some things I think could be improved. Everytime I went to add a payment, the due date would change a month. There was no way not to have this happen. If you're adding a batch of old payments like me, you don't want this to happen. Also, if I set a bill to never due, the app would set the due date as today. Logging a new payment, then deleting it, resolves the issue. However, that doesn't seem right. Otherwise, I have had a pretty good experience with the app.
I've been using Chronicle (MacOS and iOS) for years now and rely on it completely to make sure bills get paid and in helping me budget my finances. The developer is very responsive and helpful and the cloud subscription costs are reasonable (if you decide to extend the functionality). All of that makes Chronicle Pro easy to recommend for anyone who wants to take the stress out of payng bills on time.
This app does exactly what it is supposed to do, works well. A version update introduced a problem. I contacted the developer, he fixed the problem quickly and released a new version with the fix. Developer is very responsive. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
To the developer, the new update 9.7.1 crashes on startup under Mac OS X (10.11.6). Please fix. The app has been great and I am a long time user. Thanks.
Just updated to Chronicle Pro v 9.7.1, and this app just keeps getting better and better with each update. I've been using Chronicle since 2012, and I consider Chronicle to be one of my most essential Mac & iPhone apps. It helps me track all of my bills, payments, income, etc. and has truly allowed me to get a much better handle on my personal finances. I really don't know what I would do without this app - I'm currently tracking 70 entries (and counting). Also, the app's developer is very quick to respond to any questions or issues. And if you haven't heard of the dev's latest app, don't forget to check out Directive on the iOS and Mac app stores. It's a great app for keeping track of all kinds of recurring tasks.
I wrote the review below and still stand by what I wrote about Chronicle previously. I would be lost concerning keeping track of my bills. I still own two houses and Chronicle Pro helps me keep all my bills paid on time. The reminders work great and being able to see the history of each bill is a real help for planning and projecting what seasonal bills will look like. My wife oftern asks what bill is due, or if we paid such and such and I can be anywhere that I can connect to the Internet to tell her the status of a bill. Chronicle Pro is a great time saving utility and one that I rely upon almost daily. I have been using Chronicle in some form or another for the past five years and I am completely satisified with the application. Since 2002 I owned three houses over two Western states. For years the only way I could keep track of my bills was by using a spreadsheet and hardcopy of bills as receipts that I had devised for tracking purposes. In 2014 I saw a review of Chronicle in Macworld and decided to give it a try. I loaded it to all my Apple devices so I could track the more than 30 bills and payments that came due each month from any device and in any state. Chronicle has certainly made my bill tracking much easier. I would recommend Chronicle to anyone needing a straight forward tracking program for their bills.
I use to have this app without purchasing the iOS app and sync across devices. Now since I've purchased the iOS app, have had issues several times. I've used all the help suggestions/recommendations that were listed, but still not resolved anything. It doesn't update when submitting a payment, the automatic bills show up as past due when they are setup as automatic and previously were autologged, now the issue is some how all my due dates were changed. I have to go in and re-edit them all to make sure I make my payments correctly. Message to DEVELOPER: You need to fix this
I've been using this app for about a week and am in love with it already. It does exactly what it says. It works well with macOS Catalina. I used to use Claris Filemaker Pro Advanced for keeping track of my bills & income, but this does a better job at an incredibly low price. I have no cons just pros and recommend it completely.
Had major issues with the software before the update. However, the same issues persisted after the update. I restarted my mac after the recent update and now it works. Thank you!!!
I was using Apple Notes to keep track of all my bills before this. Chronicle makes it so much easier. Buy it on iOS and macOS for the best experience. I love how you can add your income using the macOS app. It makes it easy to know how much you'll have for spending on bills. I wholeheartedly recommend this app.
