Take a look around you when you are on the way to work tomorrow morning. If where you live is anything like where I live, you’ll see that retail stores are sadly dying a death. The online world is gradually taking over from the Main Street world and, more and more, we are doing much of our purchasing online. In many cases we use subscriptions to ensure that we'll never run out of stuff. It used to be just newspapers and magazines that we sign up for but these days we subscribe to everything from shavers, diapers, movies and music to our gym membership. The fact is, because it's so simple to do, we will subscribe to more and more as the years roll by.

So, it's vitally important that we keep a track on these subscriptions to ensure we are not wasting money by continuing to be billed for things we don't need or have a use for anymore. Truebill is a clever new free app for Android and iOS that finds, tracks and manages your paid subscriptions and recurring bills while keeping your financial details totally safe and secure. Simply sign up to the app and connect your credit card or bank statement and the app will scan for subscriptions and show you everything you're paying for on a recurring basis. Not only are you alerted instantly when new charges turn up on your account but you can also set monitors to watch for any price increases that may occur. You now have total control over your subscriptions and billing and it's easy to cancel any that aren't needed anymore with just a few clicks

You could argue, of course, that all it takes is a phone call to cancel a subscription. Well, I don't know if you've tried that recently but chances are, you'll be put on hold and in a queue - waiting for someone to deal with your enquiry. Truebill let's you cancel in a matter of seconds saving you precious time as well as saving you money. According to the developers, the average Truebill user saves US$512 per year by cancelling unwanted subscriptions. That's a huge amount. The app continues to monitor your statements while you get on with your life and sends you out a monthly report informing you of any changes that might have occurred.

We've all been surprised at some point by a random charge on our credit card or bank statement. The worst ones are those free trials that you've forgotten about and that kick in after 14 or 30 days. Truebill gives you back total control over your accounts and lets you choose which services you want to continue to be billed for. Once your accounts are connected, Truebill lets you track your subscriptions over time, helping you identify and catch rate hikes and extra fees. You won't have to worry about security either. The developers use the most up to date industry protocols for storing your account data including 256-bit SSL encryption. When requesting statements from your financial institutions, bank-level security with read only access is utilized. This means your login credentials are never stored on their servers and Truebill never has access and cannot make any changes to your accounts.  What's more, they will never sell or share your data with any third party.

Truebill is one of those apps that makes perfect sense. It uses sophisticated algorithms to identify our subscriptions and recurring bills and lets us have complete control over them. It's not so bad when you have one or two subscriptions to keep track of but, the thing is, there are going to be more and more as the years roll on. Whether its the gym membership, Netflix or Spotify or the myriad of others that are going to crop up in future years, it's best to get a handle on them now because subscribing to a service rather than owning stuff is the way the world is heading.  Truebill is very easy to use and will save a lot of time and money as well as giving you an element of control over those bills that might slip under the radar. Its available for free right now for Android and iOS mobiles and tablets.
