Chronicle stands out amidst a sea of overly complex financial applications by doing only one thing, but doing it very well … 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.

In this day and age of bills sent and paid electronically it is easy to let one slip by if you are busy — it happened to me over the holidays. If used properly, Chronicle can help anyone avoid that kind of problem and it is very easy to use it properly.

I wasn’t even looking for this product, but the moment I found it I knew it’s what I’ve been needing for years. Chronicle is so elegant in its simplicity, yet it gives me the information I need … to find this useful little gem in a sea of other options was truly a gift

The best app I have downloaded to date. I just installed [Chronicle] on my Dad’s computer. He recently went in the hospital for surgery and at 85 years old paying bills has been an issue and he has been paying them late so I installed it on his computer so I can access it remotely and he will know when I paid his bills for him.

In a world where too many programs fancy themselves as Swiss Army knives, Chronicle is exactly the opposite: simple, focused and highly effective. We liked the attractive interface … the clarity of the bar chart that show bills paid over time, and the fact that you can learn how to use it in about 10 minutes.

I just wanted to take a second to thank you for the AMAZING app! Just bought CHRONICLE last night and so glad I did. We are drowning in bills and this software is already helping us see the light and I KNOW will enable us to finally keep our heads above water. Sometimes the key to getting things done is just being ORGANIZED, and CHRONICLE is definitely going to be helping in that category

If, like me, you have a near-pathological aversion to accountancy software then this app is for you. Easy to use, with a clean and simple interface. … Chronicle has just the right amount of functionality. Love it.

I just bought Chronicle, and it is brilliant. It has everything I want, and, more important, nothing I don’t. It’s easy enough for me so I can concentrate on the bills and not on the software. G.V., Chronicle User

Case Study: Using Chronicle to Pay Bills Prevent Late Fees

Manuel L. found his bills a mess before installing Chronicle. Since installing the app three years ago, he’s eliminated late fees, and used Chronicle to help resolve a dispute with his bank. See what he has to say in his own words:

I just wanted to drop you a few words of thanks for creating Chronicle. It’s been three years since I first installed it and my usual bills ‘mess’ has been solved for good. Honestly, I am grateful every single time I open the program (which is almost daily) and am able to visually survey my situation at a glance — in reds, oranges and greens. It has given me peace of mind and a sense of control, and has saved me a few bucks (in late fees) along the way.

I love how I can see how much I’ve paid in loans so far, and what the balance is. This actually helped me with a dispute with the bank. I felt I had the upper hand in saying ‘nope, this is what I’ve paid so far’ without having to go over the online bank transfers one by one and adding it up. Once I tried to keep up with my bills on an excel sheet and it was just too complicated, or rather, not specialized enough for the task. If something is a bit too tedious and offers any degree of mental resistance, you end up not using it. Chronicle, on the other hand, is fast, easy and intuitive and I am actually excited every time I use it. I particularly like how one can choose the frequency of bill payments: I have monthly, bimonthly, trimonthly, and yearly bills/payments and Chronicle keeps me ready and alert for them. No more out of the blue surprises.

I can’t thank you enough for developing this baby. It has become one of my main tools. I can’t thank you enough for developing this baby. It has become one of my main tools.
