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.

MACWORLD gives Chronicle 4.5 out of 5 mice:
"Chronicle is one of the slickest finance apps available for the Mac. It’s easy to use and easy on the eyes, and it’s worthy of a spot on anyone’s dock."

Syncing is built in:
You can sync Chronicle data with multiple Macs using Dropbox or iCloud, details below:

Version 7.0.2 fixes two issues:
- Fixed periodic crashing in some cases.
- Fixed an issue where the days until due would not update after Mac went to sleep.

If you have problems opening version 7 on macOS 10.9, see our help page here:

NEW: Improved repeat intervals. Chronicle now includes repeat intervals for specific days of the week (like 2nd Wednesday of the month, etc), plus a special custom repeat interval for paying estimated taxes in the U.S. The new repeat intervals can be accessed by selecting "Custom" on the repeat interval field.

NEW: Improved Tag Behavior: You can now search for tags using the search field. In addition, you can now use the search field to further narrow down bills due soon or due in the current month. For example, you can select click "Due This Month" on the sidebar, and then select a tag in the search field to show only bills matching that tag due in the current month.

NEW: Refined, improved design. More information and options for how information is displayed on the Overview. In addition, the design has been improved so that information is easier to sort and access. Search can now be accessed from anywhere, not just the overview.

NEW: More icons. Icons for cloud drive services, clubs & organizations, food, jewelry and savings have been added.

NEW: CSV Export. You can now export all of your payment history for any bill.

IMPROVED: iCloud sync reliability has been improved, and several sync-related crashes have been fixed.

Review by Jelsert

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.

Version 5.5.0
Review by nicholas042893

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.

Review by Rick Nagore

Stopped Working In Version 7.0.2 - After the new update it stopped working. Everything was working great now can’t open the app. Same thing happened on my iPad Pro but I uninstalled then reinstalled and it is working. Tried to do it on my MacBook Pro and nothing. Time to look for another app. *****I Edit My Review to 5 Stars.****** I let my frustrations get the best of me and wrote my first review before giving the support team at littleFin LLC (Mike👍🏼) a chance too figure it out. It took 3 days to get this app going again but it’s working GREAT! again thanks to MIke in support. I could tell mike was working on this in the background because he was the one to reach out too me to get this resolved. I just coulnd't figure out why it worked on my iPhone and iPad but not my MacBook Pro. All I can say is they have a good support team so give them a chance before you write a bad review like I did. It may take a few days but it’s worth the wait. This is a Great app. Thanks again to Mike in support.👍🏼

Version 7.0.2
Review by mtnwalker

I give up! - I have had Chronicle now for several years and had no issues. Then awhile back, I started having synch issues and the Mac app freezing up. I deleted it and went with another app. I saw the receent update and thought I would give it another try. I give up. I reinstalled with the lastest update and NOTHING. I click and nothing happens. I delete and reinstall and still nothing. Really, it should not be this way after paying good money to put up with an app not working straight out of the box. So, I will delete once again and continue my current bill management app which is totally functional and none of these headaches.

Review by dbm009

not working; steer clear - I’ve had the same issues others have referenced. I used this app for several years. Loved it, but then it just stopped working. I installed the update to 7.0.2; customer service said that this should fix any problems. It didn’t. I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling. I’ve contacted support and gave them the information they requested. They gave me a suggestion on how to correct the issue. I did as instructed; again, didn’t work. Told them it didn’t work, and haven’t heard back. I was also told on 6/12/17 that I was the only one experiencing this problem - this is either disengenous or the problem has all of sudden blossomed and is affecting other customers. Regardless, I would steer clear of Chronicle until there is a clear fix.

Garbage! Sync stopped working! Developer doesn’t care - Contacted developer about iCloud sync issue and was told to do the usual troubleshooting steps. Still doesn’t work. Do not waster your money! Won’t even sync with Dropbox!
