    Pros: 

    Clean design

    Cons: 

    You have to manually enter subscriptions, the app doesn't find them for you

    You have to pay .99 if you want to add more than 5 subscriptions

    I don't think many users will build the habit of entering subscriptions every time they sign up for something. Services like Trim are easier and more effective since they automatically find your subscriptions after linking your accounts.

    Karthik Patil has used this product for one day.

@etienne_lamotte Makers really need to mention up front what platform their apps are available on. This assumption, so common on PH, that everyone uses iOS, is getting annoying.

@etienne_lamotte @cacarr Sorry you feel that way. For now we're focussing on the iOS app, but maybe in the future.

@etienne_lamotte @nilshoenson I can understand that for 6 months or so, but much after that, it becomes hard to take an app seriously.

@treggify I second that. I LOVE Ignite and use it on a daily basis. Glad I've now found this other gem.

Awesome design :) Some really nice details: search field shaking when not entry found, fade in/out of bottom border of navigation controller, rounded corners on the view etc. :=)

Mark as paid is still missing. Many times it happens that I am getting notified for the bill which is already paid.

@nilsej Thanks for using Bobby! If you are tracking bills that don't last forever, set the 'Duration' property of the bill to a non-indefinite time (i.e. 1 year). Let me know if that helps!
nilsej@nilsej
@sdrzn my concern is either bill keep showing even I paid or just go away after due date. It is not practical. In real life you pay that. That’s the reason why most of the people use todo list for bills to remind at time and mark them paid once paid.

@nilsej Watch out for the next update version 2.2.2 - it has this feature implemented!
