If manual flash (yn560) convinient for a noob?

I don't have much experience on how to use the flashgun, but sometimes I need to shoot low-light photo. So I think maybe I need a flashgun. All I need is just the bounce capability. Metz 44 seems good, but it is expensive. I not sure will I change to DSLR, so I don't want to buy an expensive flash, as it will be hard to sell it. All the Samsung flashguns can't turn left or right. Then I found a cheap flash - yn560. The only problem is, I have to use it manually. I wonder if I can use it effiently? Or I'd better buy something with ttl?

btw, does anyone know if the ttl function can let the exposure proper when bounce from the ceiling or the wall?
