What’s it supposed to do? Aggregate all your accounts in one place, allowing you to pay your bills quickly and avoid late fees.

Ease of use (4/5): Mint Bills, formerly known as Check, does most of the grunt work for you. The most effort users have to exert is setting up all the accounts. But even that isn’t a painstaking process. Once your accounts are set up, you can easily pay bills from the app using a bank account or credit card. Paying with a bank account is free; paying with a credit card or debit card includes a transaction fee.

Features (4/5): Mint Bills makes it nearly impossible to miss a payment. You can set up reminders to alert you when bills are due. The app gives you the option to pay the bill now or schedule a payment later.

Additionally, you can sync your bank and investment accounts, and the app will track your expenses and split your spending into categories, showing you where your money is going.

If security is a concern, the app boasts three layers of security: bank-level security, in-app security and real-time alerts that notify you if the app notices unusual purchases or account changes.

Effectiveness (5/5): It can be difficult to keep up with all your bills, especially if every one is with a different company — but not when you’re using Mint Bills. The app alerts you of when your bills are due and lets you know when your account balance is running low.

Value (5/5): Mint Bills helps keep money in your pocket by ensuring you never miss a payment or overdraft an account. And, the app essentially does all the work for you.

Verdict (18/20): Mint Bills is the crown jewel of bill-pay apps, with some excellent bonus features thrown in for good measure. Download this app to get rid of any anxiety when it comes to paying bills and keeping track of your money.
