    Bills for iPad lets you take charge of your life by getting a better handle on the bills you need to pay. It may not make paying bills fun, but it should make the process a lot less painful.

    Bills are just one of those things in life from which we cannot seem to get away. Once you leave childhood behind, bills are one of the few guarantees in life. Depending on your lifestyle and the size of your family, you may have so many bills that it's hard to keep track of what is due and when. This is why organization is so important when managing and paying your bills. 

    You could take the task by the horns and manage bills with an old-fashioned notebook, or you could take advantage of your iPad's capabilities and download the Bills for iPad app. Bills for iPad is an excellent example of how the tablet device can help you with productivity and keeping your life under control.

    As stated, bills are unavoidable, which could explain why the Bills for iPad app has been ranked so high on the device's download charts. The fact that some may consider an app that helps with bill management a necessity is just one reason why Bills for iPad is popular, however. Besides being a necessity, Bills for iPad is a great app within itself, not only due to its design, but also its functionality and user-friendly interface.

    Perhaps the most impressive aspect of Bills for iPad is its design. The app's developers, iBear, hit a home run with its aesthetic qualities. The app looks like an actual office, with virtual pieces of furniture and supplies dotting its landscape. The virtual furniture and supplies are not just for show. In fact, each represents a different function of the app. 

    What looks like a projector display is the app's calendar that lists bills to pay. Beneath the calendar is a virtual desk, complete with books and file folders that represent Help and other features. Virtual file cabinets are actually bill filters that you can use to sort through bills. Last, but not least, is a large chalk board. It shows detailed bills data, such as the bills you have paid, overdue bills, and more.

    You will have to tinker with the app for a bit to get accustomed to it, but after a little practice, it's a breeze to use. The app's overall flow is logical and intuitive. You can use the large calendar to mark when your bills are due, as well as any anticipated dates when you expect to spend money for other things, such as large purchases. Since bills and budgeting go hand in hand, you can enter a monthly budget that will go at the top of the calendar. Expenses will be deducted from the original budget figure so that you see your status as days go by. 

    Filtering and searching through bills is very simple. You can sort through bills to see what you have already paid, what you plan on paying, and what you have neglected to pay. If you prefer to see the data on your computer, you can export the app's data to HTML or CSV files. There's also a protective PIN feature to keep your data out of the hands of others. 

    Nobody said that paying bills was fun, but you can make the task a bit easier with Bills for iPad. The app costs $3.99, which is a small price to pay considering all it does.
