    1.6.7 Update

    It looks like I've skipped a few blog entries. 1.6.7 is now available in the Android Market. I'm continually getting email suggestions and feedback. I appreciate the emails and conversation.

    1.6.7 introduced 2 new frequencies: FirstMiddle and SemiAnnual. I think Semi Annual is self explanatory. FirstMiddle will create a bill schedule with due dates on the 1st and 15th of the month.

    Android 2.3 calendar support was added. At the time of this writing only l device currently hosts 2.3 but some customers are using it.

    Some UI changes were added around the app to give it a more consistent feel.Finally, the introduction of status icons. This may be better described with a picture.

    See below:

    Icons in use:

    Easy Bills 1.6.4

    A new update of easy bills has been pushed to the market. This update mainly focused on the interface. There have been many requests/suggestions for adding a filter or way to view paid/unpaid/or all bills for the month. I'm glad to say this feature is now available.

    You'll notice the filter button in the upper left hand of the main screen. Just press it for options.

    I've also moved the Add Bill button the main screen as well as the navigation buttons for moving between months.

    Easy Bills Update 1.6.2

     I don't like publishing updates this close together but it was necessary. Someone sent in an issue that needed to be resolved. Just so you don't feel left out, I've fixed my poor spelling of "reoccuring" and added "BiMonthly" to the app.

    Again if you find something with the app, please let me know. If you have any suggestions, email me.

    Easy Bills Update 1.6.1

    This update added note fields. You're now able to attach a note for the bill series and individual notes for each payment. Why would you want that? If you want to record a transaction or check number for the payment, then you'll save that in the bill notes. If you had to call customer service for some reason about a bill, log it in the notes.

    If you want to store your account number or some other miscellaneous information about the bill then save that in the series notes. Then it will follow each payment and that information will be at hand when you need it. This setup can be very powerful and useful.

    The other addition is selecting the payment date. Previously you weren't able to do this. If the bill has been paid the choose, "Save Paid". This will change the status and save any notes. "Save UnPaid" flags the bill as unpaid and saves any notes. "Save Note" just saves the note without changing the paid status.

    The screen that you interact with looks like this

    v1.6 Easy Bills Update

    This update involved calendar sync and bill options. Now when you select the calendar, you'll be able to choose which one to sync with. This also allows you to create a custom "bills" calendar.

    Biweekly and Quarterly have been included in the "Add Bill" screen. Also, introduced is the reoccurring option. This was added for the bills that happen every month and don't follow a payment schedule.

    Thanks again for your interest in Easy Bills. If you have comments, question or complaints please email me and we'll discuss.
