App Review – BillMinder

This application was released on September 23, 2009 into the App Store.  I have been using BillMinder for about a month now.  The initial setup was a breeze entering categories that I wanted, the account information, and the bills that we have (TOO MANY!).  I did go ahead and sign up for the push notifications through iTunes as well for the small fee of $0.99.  This application allows you to setup the bills you have automatically drafted from your account and will also notify via push that it was been auto payed just as a reminder to take it out of your checkbook, if you haven’t already.  The badge updates with any bills you have due within a number of days that you set in the settings and it also sends the push notifications based on this number of days as well.  One of the other cool features is that it allows you to integrate with the PocketMoney application to allow you to have your checkbook/accounts setup.  This has been a real life saver for me as I’m not one to carry around a checkbook all the time.  Will post a full review of PocketMoney next.  BillMinder has been a great addition to my apps that I use on a daily basis and the development company is great about listening to feedback and getting the application updated.  Below is the applications description.  Head on over to the App Store and download BillMinder today!

*Push is a very cheap, premium, optional feature that is billed annually through iTunes and does not automatically renew.  Charging a very small amount for push helps us cover server costs.  Thanks for understanding that we aim to provide a quality service.*
