Previously the Account Settings were displayed in a lightbox-style overlay. We started to outgrow this, and overall it was a bit clunky. So we've created a dedicated Account section located at From this new section... Read More

Experimenting With Banner Ads Again

Backstory: Even though we planned on having the Free version of billQ be ad-supported, we've been struggling with a good way to handle the ads.

Update: Additional Reminder Settings

We just made an update to the Reminder Settings that some of you should find useful. Previously when choosing a date in advance of your due date to receive your reminder, it was a start date.
