Reviewer T. Levesque “The “Kindle Queen” says,
Initially, I wasn’t going to bother downloading this app after reading the couple of reviews complaining of errors & difficultly entering their income entries. However, because I was in need of an app to where I could at least schedule all of my many (ridiculously!) numerous bills into one simple program. I’m glad I’d ignored a couple negative reviews or I’d have missed out on a really good app.
I was able to easily input my bills, create bill names or categories, give each bill or bill category a color for easy recognition, input the bill amounts, assign dates due, assign a reminders of my choice for days in advance. I especially like the added note feature. This allows me an unlimited amount of space to write for any bill. For example: I have one bill coming up to pay for work on repair to my Jeep at the end of this month. But, I have questions about those repairs before I finish paying. I wrote those questions into the app so I wouldn’t forget all of them [when] that time comes.
