Manilla: Written & Video iPhone App Review
The iPhone App Review takes on Manilla – a new bills and account manager. Developed by Manilla LLC and featured on ABC News, this financial organization app has been making some serious waves online. Stick with us as we take a look at this app in our review!
Here is the basic idea of Manilla: It keeps your financial accounts in one place, send you emails and text message reminders when bills are due, and also includes travel rewards and subscription manager options. For those who hate keeping track of multiple billing accounts, rewards and other accounts online, Manilla aims to fix that.
No more having to log in to various websites all across the ‘Net to keep track of your finances. Instead, Manilla keeps it all in one place. Imagine being able to see all of your possible bills due for each month: Cellphone, wireless, gas, electricity, water, etc-and then receive a reminder before each payment is due. That’s it! You will need to put in your account login once for each account for Manilla to function properly.Once you’ve set it up, you can even download, print, and email these documents for each bill whenever you load up the app. Now, Manilla, doesn’t work with every single account provider under the sun-however, it does work with over 3000 different account services with more on the horizon.
Now, one of our major concerns with any ‘total’ financial account app is the app security. It’s always a little disconcerting to know that one app has accces to a large amount of your financial data, potentially putting that info in danger should your device fall into the wrong hands. However, Manilla is owned by the large Hearst corporation and the publisher states, “Manilla’s practices are verified by TRUSTe, VeriSign, McAfee, and other leading security agencies.”
Manilla looks great on the iOS. The professional layout absolutely screams of slickness. It’s easy to setup new accounts from the start. Furthermore, setting up the ever-helpful alerts and reminder system (a real life-saver!) is also quite easy and works really.The quick browse format allows you to easily skim through the various bills you owe and see just how much you will need to pay and the due date, all on one handy page. The developers have gone above and beyond in making Manilla look and act as sharp as it purports to be!
Manilla is a very useful app. For those of us (and who doesn’t?) have multiple bills to pay each month for telephone, internet, gas, water and more-Manilla is a real time saver. The helpful reminder options and other neat features help save you money from the start of each monthly billing cycle.
Furthermore, the intuitive design and impressive layout sweeten the package on this free app put out by Hearst. Manilla has received rave reviews online and in-print and we were quite impressed with it at The iPhone App Review as well! If you are looking for a slick bills and account management app on the iOS, Manilla is a must-try!
Manilla iPhone app requires iOS 5.1 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad devices. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
