I travel a lot for work and while most of my bills are setup for auto-pay, there are a few that I need to keep track of....cough cough Verizon LOL. I use to end up paying my bill at the last minute because I would forget about it. A colleague of mine introduced me to this app because he had the same issue with his cell bill and I'm grateful he did. Manilla has become my go to app.

The first thing you need to do is download the Manilla app from the App Store. You also need to have online accounts setup with your creditors in order for this app to work.

When the app is opened, you have the option to create an account or sign in if you have an existing account.

Once your account is created, you can manually add an account or you can choose one of the companies from the list provided.

Now that your account is added, Manilla will display each account along with the account balance. To add additional accounts, just click the plus sign in the upper righthand corner of the accounts screen.

If you click on the account, it will give you details on what your current balance is and how much you paid previously.

Within the app there's a place to see reminders and you can also set the app to send push notifications. Manilla will automatically send you email reminders of when your bill is due.

You also have an option to setup a four digit passcode, so you don't have to enter your email & password every time.

I really like this app because it's simple to setup and very easy to use. Hopefully, this helps someone get a little more organized!!

How accurate is the app at updating accounts .. Like say your bank account balance ? Also when you make a payment does it react the same as a bill pay or the same as paying from the collectors site ?

I've been using the app for about a year and haven't had one issue with the accuracy. Right now, you can't make payments from the account but I see this becoming a feature in the near future. In just a year, I've seen definite improvements.

So I downloaded and added pretty much all my account still have to add a couple manually but overall very cool app and I think it will come in handy .. I thought it had a way to pay bills also but basically is tracks your accounts has balance and due dates and reminds you of them .. Then you can use the app for that said bill or pay the bill however that may be.
Currently I had bill do dates in my calendar but this is way easier .. Thanks for sharing this little gem .. Btw the other app I tried was mint .. It does not refresh data very quick

Dear Manilla User,

We are announcing today that Manilla will be closing on July 1, 2014.

However, we were unable to achieve the scale necessary to make the economics of the business viable.

What you need to know:

Existing users will have access to the Manilla service through June 30, 2014.

On July 1, 2014 the Manilla service will cease ongoing operation.

What actions you should take:

We urge you to download any documents you wish to retain and deactivate your Manilla account prior to July 1, 2014.

To deactivate your account, please click here and select "Delete your Manilla account" at the bottom of the page.

Manilla will retain user documents through September 30, 2014. You will be able to retrieve your documents (no other aspect of the service will be operating) from the Manilla website through September 30, 2014. After that date, any remaining documents will be destroyed.

Please refer to our FAQ for more details.

Nikki did you read the post in the iOS apps and games forum about the post on Manilla although I can't confirm it but thought you might be interested in it since your guide.

I just got caught up on my emails & saw this...I'm so sad because this was a great app!!! I was looking in the forums a little while ago & someone suggested Mobilligy. So far it's very similar to Manilla & you can make payments within the app. Plus it's free so it doesn't hurt to try it out.
