I tried it on FireFox and IE and it freezes half the time. Especially when I am adding a new bill or updating one. It takes about 15 seconds once I click the "Add" button after I have entered all the info. I have also experience Rails error. I don't think the problem is with Ruby On Rails, but the server processing the information. I'm a developer myself and I know that posting small info such as a new bill should not take that long. I hope this is resolved because I like it. BillQ is a wonerful idea, but the application fails most of the time. I tried it on FireFox and IE and it freezes half the time.

While we definetly agree bank integration is ideal, maybe some form of PayPal or Credit Card process would be helpful. We'll continue to think about it as we improve billQ. Thanks again for the suggestions. Interesting Idea Abhishek. While we definetly agree bank integration is ideal, maybe some form of PayPal or Credit Card process would be helpful.

How about enabling payments via PayPal instead of integrating with Banks. Also banks may not be interested in hooking up with you as at some level you compete with part of their offering. I am sure you can enable PayPal or credit card payment of bills. These payments can result in you electronically submitting the money to the merchant or mailing a physical check. Abhishek Nick,

Right now, bill payment is a completely different animal for us. We would have to get banks to open up their service and allow us to integrate. Not to mention how many banks this would have to happen with. While this has definetly something that we have talked about, it isn't plausible right now. We do have some other plans to expand this app into more of a personal finance suite, so billQ is just the tip of the iceberg. We hope you stay tuned. Hey Abhishek,

Alas it was only a reminder service. Now I am thinking as why I would use this service ever. Bank of America and Wells Fargo do a great job of bill tracking and payment online. They have great notifications and e-bills cpability. I just dont know why anyone would use this if they have a checking account with any of these banks. I seriously recommend adding the bill payment feature. Abhishek I signed up for this hoping the service would also let me pay my bills online. Alas it was only a reminder service.

Yes it costs money, but the time, postage and late fee avoidance more than makes up for it. Plus even your paper bills can be automatically paid.

For version 1.0 we wanted to just get the service out there, and being that over 80% of our audience uses $, that was all we decided to support at that time. But, we are actually going to be making a major update (which will include this feature plus much much more) to billQ in the coming week. Hopefully the updates will be more helpful. Hey Rob,
