Simple and well done
This app is very handy when you're someone like myself, who does little jobs for people, and would like to keep the jobs all organized.
If there was a feature that would allow you to add photos to projects, that would be very useful.
Less useful than expected
The help tips are very limited and don't cover everything I hoped for. That was extremely disappointing. The app needs to include drawing tools or include photos you can add to help design and plan each room. This is definitely not everything I need.
Great and usefully app
Works great for me. But I'd like to see an iPad version and I'd be totally happy. Still 5 stars for me.
