BillMinder 4 App Reviews

Lost original app with no warning

I’ve been using the original app since 2009 and love, love, love it. I begrudgingly updated my phone to iOS 11 because my bank app wouldn’t work if I didn’t. Went to see what bills I needed to pay and low and behold it is not supported by iOS 11. I have lost 9 years of bill history, not to mention I don’t know what bills are coming due. One reviewer mentioned that by buying the latest version her original version reloaded and updated once the original email and password was entered and she is able to use it. So, I bought the new version and no such luck. I am so sick I can just not put into words. I have even emailed the developer and nothing. Bad business return7. Just bad business.

DebtMinder

I love the Bill Minder. It would sync with Debt Minder. We you be update the Debt Minder soon? These are wonderful apps.

Great

This app works great so far. Simple, to the point. Easy to input and easy to use. One thing that would be nice is a way to keep track on income coming in as well.

Just lost everything

Update: Ok maybe it just took a while to repopulate the data. Except for cleaning up a few things, everything seems to be back. Long time user of this indispensable app. I used it exclusively on an iPad pro with no account. Well I just decided to put it on my iphone as well and it seems to have lost nearly everything except for some bills that I haven’t had for years. Moral of the story, back up often! Even the most trusted stable app can catastrophically fail without warning.

Face ID

The app need some improvement... Face ID doesn’t work very well.

CRASHES!!!

I like this app and believe it could be an app I use frequently. Out of the gate I have discovered that when I go to calendar view and click on list, the app crashes and closes. Please fix and if there are no other glitches, I will be glad to re-rate with 5 stars. Thanks!

Where did all the due dates go?

I like this app; I want to love it. But I changed the setting to not move dates if a bill is due on a weekend, and now none of my bills have due dates at all – they all say “due on (null).” I’d say BillMinder is not reliable until this bug can be resolved.

It doubles my bill list please help

I really love your app but when I sync my old tablet (old billminder )to my iPhone 8 plus (billminder 4) everything doubles and if I delete something the whole bill will be erase and now I’m confused...😔 Thanks for the fix guys . I restart my account then walla it’s like magic I love your app so much😊

Good app

Thanks

Indispensable app

This app does just enough to keep your bills paid on time and help you budget. Information is displayed graphically for easy trend tracking.

Helpful App, but....

This app has been very helpful when it comes to tracking my monthly bill payments. Now, if the developer would update the companion app DebtMinder, that would be great. I keep getting reminders, from the DebtMinder app, stating I haven’t synced the two apps lately but the DebtMinder app still does not work with iOS 11.

Poor

Bought thinking this would be the one 4 stars and 1/2 does nothing ! Does not work as advertised might be user error but I doubt that.

Mine has web site feature

It definitely takes getting used to the changes. I think the old version was a little simpler. The little globe icon up at the top takes me to the correct web site for the account displayed. Overall I am happy with having this app functional again.

HORRIBLE! Update useless

Old app saved & kept track of every payment & I had a few years worth of detailed info for every bill. This “update” saves NOTHING. Keeps no payment history. Each time I record making a payment, it is as if I’ve never made a payment before. I’ve tried getting app assistance & the link takes you to a page w no help at all. A dead end. I am very upset. I lost years worth of records that originally imported & then disappeared & now it saves nothing. I spent hours & hours setting all my bill info up in that app. The new version is USELESS. If someone wants to help me fix this issue, I’d appreciate it bc I’m about to just buy a different one & stop messing w this one. Deserves ZERO stars. The older version I rated FIVE STARS.

Deposit accounts

Need to add a way to track deposits as well as bills with real-time cash flow forecast.

Wow! Seriously the BEST!!

I have always loved having an app to help remind me when and what payments are due so that I am on time. And I have had the free app until just recently I upgraded to the Billminder 4 and I am so truly impressed and absolutely love it!!! A purchase that was extremely worth every cent! I love the features and layout, so simple and maybe even with perfect for what I use!

Security issues & non-responsive

I loved Billminder 3 so I upgraded to V4. There is no longer passcode on the application which is disappointing. I sent an email to support but received no response.

BillMinder 4

I just don’t look the layout of the new version. I prefer a large calendar instead of this small one to the left. Until they provide an option to use the old layout I will continue to use old version.

Lo ve the app

My only suggestion for improvement is to be able to set up for bills due the same day each month- so you don’t have to constantly adjust the due dates

CONTROL

I hated not being in control of my bills. Either a bill was late or a shut off. This app is the best, never miss a bill again and I sleep well.

Decent App

But not having a way to transfer my old data over from the old version was a misstep and the fact that it constantly duplicates bill entries is annoying

Duplicate entries

I am now getting duplicate entries for upcoming bills! When I delete one of the duplicates, they all disappear! I couldn’t find a way to contact. Thus question here!

Version 4

Not a fan of this version. Loved 3 but this one crashes a lot or opens with a blank screen. For some reason, it placed my bills as next due date in March, so I had to reschedule them for January. Considering changing to another app, this one has so many frustrations.

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.

Love The Bill Pay App!

Keeps me on track with my bills. Easy to enter the bill information. Haven’t missed a payment since using this app!

DebtMinder

I can’t find another place to ask this question. Is there a update coming for DebtMinder? I can’t access any information I had saved on the app.

My BillMinder 4 Review

Great App!!!!! Highly recommended..Quick question will Return7 be releasing a new version of DebtMinder anytime soon?

Really like it. Here’s a suggestion

I’ve used BillMinder for a couple of years and really like it. Helpful to see what’s coming up and swipe it away once it’s paid. It has a view of what’s upcoming in the next 7 days. I’d love it if the 7 day view gave a dollar subtotal. I have to do the math to know how much I need in the bank over the next week.

Good app could be a little better

Over all it is a good app but it could be better if the upcoming dills had a grand total

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.

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?
