If you pay bills, you need Chronicle. It gives you the peace of mind of never having to worry about whether you paid a bill again.
*** Syncs with iOS via iCloud ***
Even if you use another finance application for general finance, you need Chronicle. One late payment can wreak havoc on your credit score, leading to higher interest rates and denied loans-- in short, completely affecting your financial life.
Chronicle will remind you when your bills are due, even when it isn't running. And in just a few minutes a month, you can handle everything related to paying your bills.
• Never forget a bill -- get reminded when your bills are due with alerts that can be synced to your iPhone and across all your Macs, even when Chronicle isn't running.
• Easily pay your bills online using Chronicle's integrated browser, or your default browser.
• Keep proof of all your payments -- store confirmation numbers and receipts right in Chronicle, so you always have proof of your payments.
• Get reminders in your notification center and put bills on your calendar. Chronicle can remind you via notification center and can add your bills to your calendar so you can visually see when they are due.

What Others Are Saying:
"Chronicle is an excellent App that has enabled me, once and for all to control my Bills and no longer have any surprises."
--MacUpdate User Review
"Simple yet powerful, with all the features I need and a very good interface" --MacStories
6.7.3 fixes two bugs related to income. One bug caused income not to rollover at the start of a new year. Another bug caused a maximum of two income entries per month to appear, so, for example, weekly income sources would not appear on all weeks.
Chronicle 6.7 adds two major new features to Chronicle:
NEW: A totally new, improved notification center widget that shows the next three upcoming bills & more details.
NEW: Support for the Touch Bar on the new MacBook Pro. For more information on Chronicle's new Touch Bar features, read our blog post at http://chronicleapp.com/touchbar/
Most Helpful Reviews
Simple and Useful Concept, Excellent Execution - While this piece of software may initally strike users as unusally ‘one-task’ (i.e., bill management), the experience of using Chronicle will prove its value. I have long wanted an easy to use application to help me manage and track my monthly bills, but have often been overwhelmend (YNAB) or unimpressed (Koku) with the applications that have attempted to serve this role. Chronicle is a refreshingly simple, well executed application that provides a bill managment system worth every penny. The best thing about the application is its dedicated purpose. This is not a task manager that will become cluttered with other projects and to-dos, it is not a calendar application that will be filled with birthdays and appointments; it provides a seperate, automatically organized location to manage bills and collect payment records (which answers the question of what to do with those “Print this page for your records” documents). The $15 price tage is ½ of the cost of a late-payment fee, so if you’re on the fence about purchasing consider the possibility that if this application helps you avoid a single late-payment fee it has already paid for itself.
I loved this little program until the visual change... - I loved using Chronicle! I really didn’t expect the update to make it harder to use… Changing the “buttons” in the main window to just text on a background makes it more difficult to use. Before, my eyes could just glance at the bottom to “Log Payment” and I knew to just click inside the button. NOW, I have to look for the black text on a white background and my eye-hand coordination obviously leads me to click directly ON the text, making it more cumbersome. Having a defined button with a border and shade different than the background is traditional, but functional. It was designed that way, way back in the day, for a reason. I’m only 21…so give me a break! My eye sight is fine…but I’m getting so fed up with this “modern” look of simpleness that sacrifices true natural functionality I’ve grown accustomed to over my life span! Disappointed with the visual change, however still a good program to use to manage bills.

HALF BAKED PROGRAM WITH TONS OF SYNCING ERRORS AND LOUSY SUPPORT - Wish I could say I had a good experience. I’ve come to depend on this buggy software which doesn’t sync properly - my error
Due soon is confusing - You need to addd the category “Today” for the bills. “Due soon” is not enough for bills that need o be paid that very day. One may overlook receipts that need to be urgently paid that same very day in banking hours. Sync is still loopy and no way to sync with a budget program.
