This is a great app and I don't understand how you guys keep it free to the public. I've been using it since it was introduced and the continual improvements are impressive. I have not tried linking Quickbooks as of yet, but plan to do so in the near future. For those of you interested in this, Quickbooks for small business is offered to you free of charge if you purchase TurboTax for small business when tax time comes. I'm hoping this will make my tax season a better experience. Keep up the good work guys! I couldn't rate it as a 5 because how would that give you any incentive to only get better! Thank you.
I have been estimating and invoicing with this app for 2+ years. I love the auto pay feature. I enjoy being able to flip estimate to invoice on the fly. I like to review my monthly income at anytime during the year. I never loose that small invoiced job that pays 30 days out. It also enables me to make a courtesy call as a reminder. Easy to use app for your on the go professional.
This app has been with Wonderful for my small business and really adds a professional touch for my customers! I would highly recommend this to anyone starting a business!! Plus it gives you the ability to track sales by month/year so I'm all in!!
