Snappy name, snappy looking app, this expense tracker has all of the functions you’d expect to get those bills organized. What’s more if you happen to be in a house-share situation you need never have those monthly rent debates again.

Loading bills is a breeze and the very clear dashboard gives you access to your bill information in a variety of ways through clearly headed sections. Your first glance at the screen will show you a list of bills for any time period you choose and those listed are colour coded so that you can easily see which ones are pressing and those giving you a little more breathing space.

Recurring bills can be handled smoothly under the schedule feature which is obviously a great way for groups of people with shared financial obligations to stay on top of things. The group creator can invite members to join and the issue of splitting bills can be smoothed out with each member’s screen showing the total due and their share of it.

Correct recording of expenses, especially in a group situation, is obviously of paramount importance but numbers on their own often don’t illustrate the position clearly enough. In this respect the report function of is comprehensive enough to make sense to everyone involved whilst being straightforward and user friendly.

Bar graphs and pie charts can help map out your spending habits over any period of time allowing you to go back over months if necessary. You can also drill down into any individual bill and view its entire payment history which is surely an improvement on rummaging through ring binders! If you’re forgetful by nature as well then don’t worry, you can arrange for email and SMS reminders to nudge you when a bill is due.

The free plan available should have enough functionality on it for most situations although the reporting capability is more limited than the paid version which comes in at $5 a month.

If you’re still struggling with endless bits of paper and particularly if you share a house or apartment with crowd that’s slightly less financially aware than you, will make your life a whole lot easier.
