Manilla closing on July 1, 2014

I just opened an email from Manilla with a sad announcement:

Manilla will be closing on July 1, 2014

Manilla will be closing on July 1, 2014. This was a hard decision given that, over the past three years, Manilla has won many awards and has been well supported by its valued user base but was unable to achieve the scale necessary to make the economics of the business viable.

You can read more details about this announcement here.

I’ve previously written about my experience with Manilla.  It really was the best way that I found to track my bills.   As a Manilla user for most of the last year, I’m sad to see this service being discontinued.  From a business standpoint, I can see how this service wasn’t very profitable for the company: they provided too much free service without good ways of monetizing.
