DUPLICATE BILLS HATE IT

DONT KNOW WHY MY BILLS SHOWS UP EVERY MONTH DUPLICATE AND SOMETIMES TRIPLICATED. I HAVE TO DELETE MY BILLS MANUALLY EVERY MONTH. HOPE THEY WILL SOLVE THIS PROBLEM, PLEASE.

My favorite to keep track of bills!!

I was really pleased to discover this app after all the reports of the incompatibility of BM3 with iOS 11. I loved BM3! This is a little different in presentation, and renders better on my iPhone in my opinion (or if I hold my iPad in a vertical position). Not a fan of the “dashboard” thing.....a little too prominent and perhaps the least desirable feature for me. Useful yes, but why should it take up half of the page? Would rather see the “calendar” rendered more prominently (as in BM3)....perhaps a version specific for the iPad might correct this? Let’s hope so! Regardless, still the best app of its kind out there. Highly recommend! UPDATE (11/04/17)...BM4 is still working great on my iPhone. But not so much on my iPad. In fact it has stopped working entirely on my iPad! However, my “BM3 for iPad” which I’ve had for years is back working all of a sudden. I always liked it so I’m not complaining, but the weird thing is that data entries there are not forward compatible with the new BM4 on my iPhone. In other words, new entries on my iPad (version “3 for iPad”) do not show up on my iPhone (version BM4). Fortunately, BM4 on my iPhone is backwards compatible with my old “BM3 for iPad“ app. Go figure. Entries in my iPhone version 4 automatically show up in my old iPad version 3. I’m guessing that at some point this company will come out with a specific “BM4 for iPad”, just like they did for version 3. A little confusing perhaps, but still the best app around. UPDATE (Jan, 2018).... still loving on this app but it may need some developer tweaking. I have been a loyal user for years and in all that time I have never missed or been late with paying a bill! All thanks to BM. The new dashboard however says I have an “on time” rate of only 87%. (When I upgraded last Fall to BM4, it initially showed a rate of 96%.) I don’t understand why, since I always pay on time!! It’s annoying, and the app doesn’t allow me to reset this number or understand the cause of this misinformation!

Glad the app is back but

The dashboard is nice but I wish it was customizable because I would prefer the calendar. Please consider making the dashboard customizable so we could have a nice big calendar next to the bills due

Pocketmoney is not working!

Pocketmoney is no longer working with the new version. Is this going to be fixed to avoid double keying? Apart from that everything else is great. I love this app.

Sync issues and crashes

I am a BillMinder user from way back. I had stop using the old version because Apple would pop up a dialog saying essentially it was incompatible with the new iOS and would slow down my phone! I like the interface on this new version; clean, vibrant and a great UX (most notably the new calendar view). I would have rated much higher, but the APP crashed 4 times in my 1st use entering about 15 - 20 bills. My wife has the APP on her iPhone, and we share the same account because we split the bill paying responsibilities between the two of us. The sync work seamlessly when entering just one or two bills. But then after marking 5 to 7 bills is paid, some of the transactions were not syncing to the other phone. I also saw 3 to 4 times a duplicate entry on one phone that was not on the other. Hopefully these issues will get fixed, and if so I would rate the app five stars if the stability improves!

Old version worked better

It works, sometimes, but the old layout and web functionality is what made it great and different from the rest. I will have to find something else because I need the big calendar layout. The dashboard is in the way and a waste of space. If the calendar could be screen maximized and you could click on the bill and have it take you to the website that would be great aka older version. Please fix this, please!

Missing 1 thing

Just got this and it’s a great app. It would be better if it had an option to add paydays. For example I get paid every 2 weeks so it would be nice I there was a blue section bar in the upcoming tab so see when payday is and see which bills need to be paid with that check.

Apple keeps losing this review.

Ok, for the umpteen time I'm writing this review over, again. The quality of this app just keeps dropping but at least this developer has finally started replying at least to 'other' customers. The iPhone app rarely agrees with the iPad app. Sync'ing is spotty. Over the last two years I have found Billminder to be less and less reliable. Sync'ing with my iPad Air never worked well. My iPad Pro is better but it is poor on my iPhone. NOW I just discovered that Billminder has apparently lost my entire payment history for ALL of my bills. That cuts it. I'm deleting Billminder and looking for an app that I can depend on.

Crash

I spent over a hour imputing all my bills and the information that goes with them. Just as I finished the last one the app crashed. It looked as if I’d lost all my information but three bills. But looking in the categories everything was still there. But none of them show up on the calendar or the upcoming bills except the three that remained after the crash. Useless for reminding me when my bills are due.

Add a widget!

I’ve been using BillMinder for years and I really love the new version. The only thing that would make it better is if they added a widget! A widget would be sooooo invaluable to seeing upcoming bills quickly without having to open the app. Definite 5 stars if this option was added. But even so, it’s a fantastic app.

HATE the new version

New version is less intuitive, so many more steps to enter a bill. Extremely annoying. Makes me angry every time I use it. Only good new feature is sharing between devices.

Does The Job

I had and older version and liked it but Apple kept notifying mean that the app had to be updated since it could slow down IOS as new versions were downloaded. I reluctantly began to try other reminder apps but I didn’t find any that were as simple to use as BillMinder. Although I wasn’t all that enthusiastic about the price for this version of BillMinder I downloaded it and I am happy to have it once again. I guess it’s the price of progress. Maybe I haven’t stumbled on it yet but for the price of the app it would be helpful to have more categories to choose from when classifying the bill type I’m paying.

Good start but...

12/8/17 ...pretty bug-riden.

Where’s your support????

I upgraded to Billminder 4 and paid for the change and now no support? What’s up with that? When switching from List over to Calendar mode the app closes and I can’t view the calendar layout. Come on guys, don’t go dark on us!!!!!

COME ON!!

I been using the older version for years. I would of paid double the price if you guys had a “balance” section. You guys had it on the old version but wasn’t active. That’s all I asked for in the new version was a balance category. Might me asking for a refund.

Notifications will not work

I really enjoy this app, and I hate to have to give it a low review like this, but I am unable to find a way to contact support about it. I can only get one of the notification features to work, and that is the badge icon. I would really like to utilize the other notification options like banners and sounds.

Can't Log In

Had no issues until today when it won't let me log in. Won't read my fingerprint (shingled part of the house and scratched up my fingertips so the phone won't read my print) and when I try to enter my password it tells me that I need authentication even before I try to enter the password. Liked it before, but I'm pretty bummed at this moment. Hopefully when fingers heal, it will be fine. How about some way to contact the developer?????

Syncing nightmares

When you email yourself a backup and restore in second device, it duplicates past due in both devices. Why not sync with iCloud, Dropbox or some cloud instead? Still no reports, except now you can export in csv format. Are you working to improve upon this. How can version 3 be better than version 4?

Lost of money

I had the free software from Bill Minder. So when the company offered the new version, there was a purchase to be made, and I did. It also said that it will merge with older version. However, after paying for it and going to instructions, it never merged and I'm still using the older version. Is needs work because, it's imposible to work it out to merged the two. Is very disappointed.

Won’t notify

I have all my bills on the app but it won’t notify me when they are due. The app shows them due and I have it enabled to notify me but it doesn’t. I can’t find a way to ask the developer to help.

Good

Good and useful app. Wish it had a widget.

Fix Authentication Issue!!

Have used Billminder for years and have loved it...until the update. I used it Saturday just fine. Go to use it today and get a message it Requires Authentication, but it isn’t accepting Touch ID Authentication which seems to be working just fine with every other app. Went to the FAQ page which stated I could turn this off in the app Settings tab.....Which, um, DUH, I would certainly DO IF I COULD GET BACK IN THE APP... and the other reviewer is correct, no Developer contact. Have tried turning off passcode and restarting with no success...Suggestions?

Love the app, but needs slight adjustment

Would be five star, but would like the ability to assign a color to each category and/or bill. I like my bills to show up red and income to show up as green. I don’t use the app for budgeting but to keep track of mine and my boyfriends paychecks and child support coming in along with the bills for the household. Other apps offer the color ability but they don’t offer the sync with account. Only iCloud or drop box. We have separate i clouds for work purposes etc. and the drop box is useless when two people are adding and deleting. Your app is by far the best app.

Happy to see an update however...

Update pocket money sync no longer working! Frustrating! Also reoccurring bills not working! Are these being fixed! Now there seems to be a problem with reoccurring bills, they seem to be skipping a month for monthly reoccurrence. I have to go in and edit the next due date. Not sure if it happens when you enter a payment late? Original rating: I’ve been searching for a replacement for awhile once I saw it would not be compatible with update. I happened across the update in the App Store and was so excited to download I didn't care about paying for the app again. I've been using BillMinder for several years and nothing has quite lived up. I especially liked the integration with Pocket Money, so I was quiet disappointed to see it no longer exists. Please bring this feature back!

0 stars

I used BillMinder 3 and upgraded and paid for 4 and all of a sudden it tells me it needs authentication to try again but it won’t let me! I depend on this to pay my bills and can’t get in!! Nor can I find out how to contact the developer 😡

Income

Please include income especially for people that get paid from multiple jobs

Ok but like the previous better

If I have to move to this due to updates I can live with it but like the old format better. Liked the list to left and big calendar to right on Dashboard. Don't like new dashboard. All my info crossed over. I'll try to live with it but will continue to use current version until I have no choice. Update... what happens to my “Repeat Forever” it only repeats for three months out....maybe...by March most of my bills don’t show! Does it only project three months out? Toooooo bright! You supposedly fixed the doubles....not... still does it. All I can say, again, is I’ll stick with the update 3 version til I have no choice cause it still works the way I like it.

Waste of my time and money!

I purchased this app because of the capabilities to sync over multiple devices without having to upload my bank info, which I’m not a fan of. I spent over an hour entering in all of my bill info only to find this morning that there are no due dates on my bills! It lists the accounts and amounts due, but now I have to find when all of my bills are due again! Messed up that I wasted my time and money on this app, which has no support from the app developer.

I don't like 4

The calendar is to small. That is where you would want to start from when you first open the app. Then the side panel gives you the break down.

Epic

I’ve been using Billminder since the original. Nothing else even comes close!!! Also, first day iPhone X support!!!!

Great app, and improvement suggestion.

I’ve been using for a long time, so I know this is just a little bug. If other categories are created they don’t link to the overall graph that displays all categorical expenses. Please ensure the new categories are correctly linked then will be accurate again. Also a small request: it’s very helpful to have a category that will help with short term and temporary expense planning that gets accounted for in the monthly total (great addition- thank you!). I’m not talking grocery’s but as an example: one time concert expense. Or airline ticket in 2 months kind of expense.

Love this app

So happy to have a new version that works with ios11; now I can update my software without worrying about losing this app! Great new look and feel and still as wonderfully useful as the pro version. Upgrading was easy and everything transferred over with no issues or duplication of bills. If Return7 can update the debt minder app too, that would be even better...

Capabilities Removed

Had a previous version of BillMinder that allowed tracking of each account and gave idea of balances and progress made toward eliminating debt. Miss those features terribly!

This has been keeping my life on track for a decade

Love this app, got it on my first iPhone. Never miss a payment, always know how to plan my paychecks. Not enough good things to say about it.

Still love this app

I have been using this app for years and it’s still the best! Support is quick to respond and always takes the time to explain any issues I’ve had! Thanks for a great app!! Send To PocketMoney has been added yayyyy!!!

Sync

I’d give it a 5 star review except my husband and I cannot sync this app together onto one account.

What happened??

I have used BillMinder 3 for some years and loved it! This version does not match up! All of a sudden the app started to pull up information from 2016..Old car loans and bills that I previously closed out. I really want to like the app cause I’m familiar with the #3 version. Please make it as similar as possible to the 3rd version.

App does not even work

I just purchased this and upon opening the app - everything I touch does absolutely nothing. I tap settings and the app does nothing....absolutely nothing. I paid $5 bucks for absolutely nothing. Go to the developer’s website and you can’t even find a support link. Something seriously wrong with this.

Much Improved from Original Version

It seems like I’ve been using this app’s first version for years, even despite not being updated for the last two years. Now, I love this app and apps like it as I don’t really care for giving out access to my credit card accounts and bank account logins that most other apps like PRISM and MINT ask for and use to track your bills for you. That is FAR too invasive for my liking. So I prefer simpler apps I can manually add account info to, with due dates and amounts, and when to alert me that the bill is due, etc. so this app was one of my most useful of all apps on my entire phone. Maybe THE most useful. And this app specifically was my favorite for this type of bill tracking. Then came iOS 11. Apple decided to make older, un-updated apps almost obsolete unless the creators updated them to be compliant with iOS 11, which brought about this version of the app. And THANK GOD THEY DID! This new version of the app (Version 4-mind you I never knew there were even versions 2 or 3), is more robust and better looking than the original I loved for so many years. Things like editing payments for accounts, either a single payment or for the entire account going forward, is so much easier and without glitches (you got used to the glitches in the old version). There are more features that can be customized also. Just a great update. Overall a MUCH better version of the original that was already one of the best apps in the entire app store. NICELY DONE! 🎉

Very disappointed-Updated not as disappointed

Since posting this the developer did add in the pocket money feature. Still disappointed in their lack of communication. Since the pocket money sync has been added back in I have updated my stars as this was a huge reason for me using this product. Original Review I have been a faithful bill minder user since bill minder 1. I have purchased this app 4 times now. This latest purchase was a waste of $5. I can no longer sync with pocket money. The calendar portion is small. And the dashboard is useless. I would have preferred to toggle between the dashboard and calendar. I have emailed support with no response if I could give no stars I would! Don’t waste your money!

Missing some worthwhile features

I do not like the new interface. In my opinion, the old Billminder interface was better. I cannot find a way to export or print "bills due" in this version, at least not without having to awkwardly do a Screen snapshot and print. Thanks for finally updating but don't take away features, especially when you are wanting us to pay again! Thanks for bringing back “Export to CSV File”. Bring back “Reports” and I will add more stars.

Still posting duplicate payments !

Still posting duplicate payments !thus doubling amou t paid - old version never did this - latest update for iOS 11 said it was fixed - I am afraid if I erase one of the dups it will elm ate payment? Should I logout each time or just adjust o e of the dup payments posted to .05 cents?

Repeating Accounts

I pay bills to the same companies every month.. with this new version is there a way I don't have to enter the company name each time? The previous version brought up existing accounts so you could just choose the company.. don't see any way to do that with this version... is there a way that I don't see?

Great as always

Love this app. By far the best bill reminder and tracker out there. Didn’t mind paying the $5 for the new version. I’m paying for a service and platform that I enjoy. The design is clean and user friendly. Mostly, I use it on my iPhone but the app is also very nice on my iPad. It’s very easy to track pills and see pertinent information at a glance. Now, if I only had the money to pay the bills...😉

Could be better

I have always loved BillMinder but since this update it's not been the easiest to use. And WHY would you remove the option to go to the websites for my accounts. That was one of the best things about this app. Definitely put that back. Then maybe I can give you a four star. No app is a five because I believe there's always room for improvement.

No access code

The “access code” is not available in this version of BillMinder. Also, the interface is not in Spanish, just in English

need help

I had purchased the new app. So I need to change my email address can you Please tell me a who to contact to get help?? I like the old app better..like every one else where is the web sites to go to to Bills??

Missing from BM3

I am glad version 4 is here and it works great, however, I have a few suggestions. I tried finding an email or some way to contact support but there isn’t an address anywhere I see. The thing I am missing is the ability to refresh the bills from the server. If I make a change in BM3 it doesn’t show up in BM4 unless I logout and back in. The reason I am still using BM3 is the ability to “send to pocket money”. That is a HUGE loss from 3->4 for me and I hope you bring it back to 4 in a update soon. (Server sync and send to pocket money needed back) Thanks!

Please add the website link back

Just up graded to 4 because I had to with the iOS but you removed the website link feature which really made this app good please put it back in there as an update thank you. This is the reason for my three star rating it really is that important.

New Version VS Old Version

I was super glad to see a new Bill Minder App. I quickly paid for it and Bill Minder is by far my go to Bill App. While Version 4 is functional - i must say that I REALLY prefer the Version 3. I like the larger calendar size - i do not like the dashboard. It takes up a lot of space for info you do not need to view all of the time. Please consider enlarging the calendar and making the view similar to Version 3. I bet that would make a lot of folks happy. I am always happy to support the developers bring us new and well rounded products and do not expect updates for free for the rest of my life.
