Receipt Donkey is designed to keep your personal and business receipts completely in the cloud and off your device. Great for individuals and small businesses trying to stay organized, getting ready for tax filings, audits and going paperless.
Current version uses Dropbox as an exclusive storage solution. One click and all your receipts live on the Internets, safely and securely in your own Dropbox folder! No more needing to manually sort through your family and vacation photos, while trying to find that one receipt that you took months ago.
Accounts and CPAs would love you for going paperless and for having all the receipts stored in one place, sharable, on the cloud. Get everything when you need it, but keep it off your mind and off your phone otherwise.
We fed the donkey some organic apples from Wester Washington and now she is ready to go again. Dropbox connectivity has also been restored. Both Swift and Dropbox are updated to the latest version so the app should function quite well for a while without further updates. Much thanks to Canna Wen (cannawen.com) for helping; you are a star!
Ratings and Reviews
Snap-snap and done!
I don’t always care to collect receipts, but when I do, Donkey is still the only app I use. Click it and forget it, that’s how I like my accounting.
Easy to use and nice idea
The application is easy to use, and I love the idea of just taking a photo and keeping all my receipts in dropbox, if I get audited at anytime I can just point them to the dropbox folder and thats it :)
Some advices on how to improve the application:
1) It should let me setup the quality of the images, by default my iPhone takes pictures at 1.4mb, eventually that will take a lot of space on dropbox and I don’t really need that level of quality for my receipts. When I send a mail it asks me what kind of quality I would like to use for the photo being sent, I would love to setup a medium/low quality photo for this application.
2) It should let me setup different categories for the receipt, its not the same to have a computer purchase receipt than a meal receipt, and if all the receipts are under customized categories the accountant can make his job 1000x faster, so I would like to setup categories for the receipts being taken.
As simple as possible, but not simpler
This app does exactly what I need, and nothing more. Situation: I’m talking with a client and I’ve just paid the bill. I want to capture the receipt without disrupting my conversion. Receipt Donkey makes it possible to do this in a few seconds. Everything else I’ve tried requires too many steps, or crashes frequently (I’m talking to you, Evernote) or requires I do work later (e.g. if i take a regular photo, I’d later have to go and fish out all my receipts…no thanks). Receipt Donkey snaps the photo instantly and puts them all in a single folder in Drop Box. Perfect.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
