Bills for iPad
You always need a simple tool to control how much you want to spend this month. Essentially you need a big calendar to track how much money you have spent compared to how much you wanted to spend. You also need to generate lists of overdue payments, planned payments and check what has already been paid off. Bills for iPad are made to help those needs! Make your ongoing monthly financial planning an easy and pleasant task!
The way you work with the application:
Set a figure indicating how much you want to spend this month. Mark days on the big calendar when you need to pay for anything or buy anything. Then when you actually have a transaction, approve it quickly (you may also approve it partially and reschedule the rest of the payment). Easily filter your bills and payments via the calendar and special boxes to show your planned, overdue and paid expenses & bills. If you spend too much, the green bar above the calendar will help you to understand it. Extra features: export to HTML and CSV (Excel), and set up a PIN code to protect your entries!

And at any point, just turn the iPhone or Touch sideways to see the simplest number of payments for everyone to get even.
