    Should hit your phones soon -- we're soooo excited about this release!

    http://itunes.com/app/BillMinder

    Changes in 2.0:
    - BEAUTIFUL AND EASIER TO USE NEW INTERFACE!
    - BEAUTIFUL New Icon!
    - Status icons
    - Account icons
    - 1-tap to mark bills paid
    - Improved calendar
    - Email a backup
    - More informative errors on restoring a backup (e.g. wrong file type)
    - Ask to change future bills or just current one
    - Collectors are now accounts
    - Improved performance
    - Ability to set negative bill amount has been restored (by popular demand!)
    - Alert count is now shown on the Bills tab
    - Bug fixes

    We're going to raise the price back up later tonight, most likely, so you might want to grab it if you want it! <3 you all, MR!

    EDIT: Thank you all so very much for your support on the App Store!!!

    Sure, I'll try to remember to do that. The App has been consistently reliable. I use it almost every day.

    This app is great, the support from Return7 is great. It's well worth the money based on the savings from non-existent late fees. Thanks, look forward to the update.

    You're most welcome. By the way, if you guys go to the BillMinder page on the App Store and download the app, it'll update your current installation even if it isn't showing the update yet. :)

    Thanks. We sort of feel damned if we do, damned it we don't, at this point. Some folks don't like the look, for whatever reason. One (and probably more soon)left a negative review saying we ruined the app. Of course, this person left no rationale so we could actually try to address their concerns. And we didn't just want to leave existing users out in the cold by releasing 2.0 as separate paid application either. I guess we can't please everyone, but it's pretty frustrating to work so long on something and have such a negative response. C'est la vie. :(

    In my opinion, anyone who thinks this app looks worse after the update just has poor taste. I realize different people like different things, but to me this update is a very clear step forward. As far as saying the update 'ruined' the app, I don't see how that's possible, as it still does the same things it did yesterday, and does so in a (yes, in my opinion) more attractive, polished way. Again, this is all MY opinion, so please keep any flaming to a minimum. I will say that green is my favorite color, so maybe that has something to do with it......

    A few people here keep raving about this app, and it's always been among the top twenty or thirty apps in Japan iTunes, so at ¥115, and with PocketMoney integration, I thought I'd at least download it and see what it does. I'm not sure if I'll actually use it, but then I've downloaded apps on a whim before and they've become mainstays.

    I'll leave an honest (not harsh review) of it in Japan iTunes if it turns out I use it.
