New july 2017 version - do not update!

UPDATED - processing of receipts is super slow -- if it even works. I've waited a day for it to finish reading the receipt only to be forced to manually input all the data myself which defeats the whole purpose of the app. Understand the developer is trying but the previous version (as bad as it was) at least had an accuracy of about 60% when reading receipts. This is more like 20% now.

If I could go back to the previous inept version I would -- at least it could scan your receipts!

Based on this app, there's no way I'd use their software to invoice my clients. Just too inept to trust.

Double Time

The app used to import info much faster, even if it was slightly inaccurate. Now, it takes days to process and there’s still no info imported from the scanned image. I just deleted 16 receipts that I took pictures of 2-3 days ago. None of them had any info in the fields. I’m retaking photos with and w/o the flash on and still end up typing in the info myself. It’s definitely taking double the time for what I’d hoped would be a seamless process.

Works fantastic!

These wave apps are absolutely awesome! Takes the picture. Processes it and boom you categorize it and your done. It just works and that's what I like about it! Fan forever!
