An Effective App To Track and Review Your Subscriptions

Have you been charged for a subscription because you forgot to cancel before the trial period ended? Or have you been paying for a service that you rarely used and not known about it for a year?

From Netflix to software packages to even our makeup, it is a daunting task to keep track of all our paid subscriptions. Well, there’s an app that allows you to easily track and review your subscriptions.

SubscriptMe can serve as your handy dandy secretary and will track all your subscriptions, help you with your bills, and give you visibility on other people’s ratings and reviews to aid you in deciding which ones to subscribe to, as well as sharing your own feedback with others.

Upon installing the app, SubscriptMe auto-detects subscriptions based on the apps on your phone. You then swipe left on all the services that you’d like to monitor. Then you can customize bill rates, cycles, and set bill reminders.

    The app will present a breakdown of your usage and spending per subscription in a monthly, yearly or lifetime basis. This report will give you a view and insight on the services, including spending habits and which ones you might want to reconsider staying on. Through the app, you can also tailor-fit bill rates and cycles and set reminders on when payments are due and when trials are ending.

    There is also a featured section which shows a list of popular apps and their corresponding reviews. This is useful during times that you are pondering whether or not sign on to something.

      One disadvantage of the app is the manual setting of the bill rates and cycles. I’d love to see that be auto-set through APIs. You can download SubscriptMe for free in the App Store. Enjoy!

      Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

      Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

      Does technology have all the answers?

      This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

      Creating technological solutions transparently

      This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

      Technology as the connecting tool

      Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

      “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
