Editors' review

Keeping track of your bills is the foundation of a healthy financial life; not knowing when things are due can lead to late fees, increased interest rates, service interruption, and unneeded stress. R6 Bill Tracker is a basic program that can help you remember when things are due, provided that you remember to use it.

The program's interface is plain and easy to navigate, though it's not immediately clear how one is supposed to get started. It turns out that you have to go to the File menu and create a new file before you can do anything. This is kind of an awkward setup, though it does allow users to keep track of finances for multiple people or for personal and business purposes. Next, start entering your bills, selecting the payee, amount, description, and whether or not they're recurring. Once you have everything entered, the program displays a summary screen that shows the amounts past due, due in seven days, due in the current month, and the total amount due. Beneath the summary there's an itemized list of upcoming and past due bills; to mark one paid, simply click on it and enter the amount of the payment. Although the program has a Help menu, clicking on it takes users to a Web page with a 404 error. Still, the program is pretty easy to figure out without assistance, as long as you get past the first step. Unlike many such programs, it doesn't have a reminder feature, so you'll have to take an active role in remembering to look at it. Overall, there's nothing about R6 Bill Tracker that particularly impressed us; it works just fine, but none of its features are things we haven't seen many times before.

R6 Bill Tracker installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly.

    "I think i figured it out"

    April 18, 2010   |   By nikothestripper

    Version: R6 Bill Tracker 1.5

    Pros

    seems simple

    Cons

    havent played with it enough, still going

    Summary

    I agree it was confusing, none of the functions or options were lit up and you cant do anything or click on anything. So I clicked on "file", "new", then just saved as "hello" on the desktop, now all the options are available to make payees, add bills, make payments...... opened it all up, I guess it saves it all to this file to work. Hope this helps anyone testing it out!

    "Can't Get It To Work - Can Only Guess Why"

    September 06, 2009

    Version: R6 Bill Tracker 1.5

    Pros

    If I could get it to work, I think it would be just what I may be looking for.

    Cons

    Can't get it to work. Help button offers no real help.
    I can only guess but I think the problem may be that it is not compatible with my 64 bit operating system? Perhaps it would work fine with a 32 bit system??? I don't really know!

    "Great idea but needs work."

    December 17, 2007   |   By poppyseed0054

    Version: R6 Bill Tracker 1.4

    Pros

    It's simple and installed fine for me (XP).

    Cons

    I added the payees fine. I added some one-off bills first and they appeared in the overview list. Then I added a re-occurring bill, but it didn't appear. I did this a couple of times with no sucess. So I decided to just use one-offs. Then I have no idea what happened, but one of the bills switched to recurring, and I couldn't edit it or change it (buttons blanked out). Then the couple of bills I had entered, all disappeared from the overview (note: all bills are due this week).
