Today, we released a major, free update to Chronicle for iOS with a number of updates, including multitasking support on iPad, ability to search for bills from the Siri search screen and much more. Read on for a description of the new features.

Multitasking

Chronicle now supports all orientations on all devices, and supports all orientations on iPhone and iPad. On iPhone 6+, this means you now can get a split view in landscape more. On iPad, Chronicle now fully supports multitasking (iOS 9 required for multitasking). You can have Chronicle open right next to Safari, and make a payment and log it in Chronicle seamlessly, for example.

Multitasking on iPad makes it easy to pay bills and log them in Chronicle.

Universal Search

Finding bills is easy with Chronicle for iOS 9.

Another new iOS 9 feature is support for universal search. Now, you can search for bills directly from your iPhone’s universal search, just like searching for apps or anything else. For example, from the search screen on your iPhone or iPad, search for your “Car Payment” bill, and it will find it. Tapping it takes you directly to the bill.

Partial Payments

Chronicle now supports partial payments. When you have a bill with a variable amount due, logging a partial payment reduces the amount due, but doesn’t change the due date.

iPhone Stats and Graphs

Chronicle 6 brings many features that were previously iPad only to the iPhone. Full statistics, including payment history graphs, are now available on iPhone as well as iPad. Graphs have been updated to show more detail and load with beautiful animations.

Other Improvements

Chronicle 6 includes many other changes, improvements and bug fixes, including support for Touch ID and an improved internal browser. Chronicle 6 is a free update that requires iOS 8 (some features require iOS 9). It is $4.99, but if you already own a previous version, the update is free.
