In this article lets learn how to keep track of all your subscriptions in one place with Billey.
Opinion: Though the app solves a major purpose, it lacks required dynamism yet. We understand it’s version 1 of the app and hope things would become more dynamic in the future. One of the most required features would be the ability to automatically find any upgrades in the subscription prices and update them in their respective accounts.
So what is Billey? According to maker Dario Lelardi “Billey is a dead-simple tool to keep track of all your subscriptions and stay relaxed”. The app lets you keep track of all the subscription-based services you have signed up for in one place.
As advertised, the app has a no-fuss interface and is quite easy to use. With no prior experience using the Billey android app, I was able to find my way around the app.
Billey has three important features:
1. Subscription Tracker
Subscription tracker lets you add all your subscriptions with a label, the cost, duration, and other details. Once you have added, the app displays it on the dashboard. The subscription tracker displays how many days are left for you to renew the subscription.
Reminder functionality keeps track and notifies you promptly at the times you’ve set. You could also set multiple reminders across different intervals to notify you and the app seamlessly alerts.
3. Overall Expense Analyzer
The other important feature of Billey is the Overall Spend Analyzer. The feature displays a break down of how much you spend on your subscriptions per week, month, quarter, and in a year. Depending on the statistics, you could decide “Do I really need to signup for another streaming service?” 😛
These three features work well and that’s all that matters, but I do hope they add a way to even unsubscribe for some of the services right from the Billey app.
Okay, let’s learn How to Keep track of all your subscriptions in one place with Billey?
Step 2: Install and signup for an account on the Billey app. You could even choose to use the app without an account, but your account data will not be synced to the server.
Step 3: Once logged in to the Billey app, by default you land on the subscription section. Tap on the ‘+’ icon to add a new subscription.
Step 4: A form to add more details about the subscription pops up. Fill in the name of the subscription, the amount you will have to pay, choose monthly/ yearly and add a special note about this subscription if any.
Step 5: Set a reminder to get notified before the date of payment. You could choose how early you want to get notified.
Step 6: After reviewing, Tap on the ‘Save’ button. The subscription details will appear on the app’s home screen.
To know how much you’re spending overall on your subscriptions, tap on the ‘Statistics’ option at the bottom of the menu. The app will display a visual breakdown via Pie chart.
