Great once you figure it out

I just made a very complicated rental contract for cameras, lights, rigs, and other gear. I used all the bells and whistles - custom checkboxes, custom roller wheels, etc.

In operation, I create a client record and take a picture of their driver's license for their photo. Then, I'm presented with a template where I pick and choose what piece of gear they are renting, for how long, rental rates, deadline for returns, etc, etc. It prints out a beautiful custom contract that once it is signed gets emailed to both of us.

The only bug is with photos put in the contract and the signatures (which are just photos). It does not handle those elegantly. At the bottom of the contract it leaves huge amounts of space around each signature. Our logo took up half the page. So that is my only complaint besides the interface design.

It's really powerful but unfortunately it has a very non-intuitive interface. It's very confusing. For example, to edit a custom text box you select [edit] at the top, then [edit] again but it's at the bottom this time, then select what to edit back at the top. Or custom text boxes - you create them in one place, but then have to go into system settings to give a logical name for that field. Once you figure it out you'll be ok and will have a powerful contract maker.

Great app but needs a couple of things

This app is fairly easy to use, but it could be a bit more user friendly in the design area. It's kind of like writing HTML rather than a simple word processor. It can backup and restore your contracts and settings to iCloud but it's missing the ability to automatically synchronize. If you have to remember and take the time to back up, it's not really a "cloud" solution. Also if you go between an iPhone and iPad like I do, you have to use the clunky backup and restore to sync between devices which is a recipe for disaster. All in all, I like the customizability and flexibility. I'm a little annoyed by the pricing tiers to get more custom fields etc... And it has crashed on me a couple of times already though. I recommend it, but it's not a slam dunk for me. Hopefully, the developers will continue to improve it. I have one wedding contract template ready to go now that turned out nicely once I figured out what I was doing.

Support seems to have fizzled

I have this and I'm pretty satisfied, but early this year was hearing a new version. App hasn't been updated since last September.
There are a couple of needed features, such as multiple signatures, ability to copy a client to create a new client and change (such as to create a contact entry for the spouse and children if I want to do model releases for everyone in the family), more than 3 images. Would like to create a model release for a full family, enter each person's info and take an image for each one.

Oh, forgot to also be able to create a draft contract. Could fill out the contract ahead of meeting the client and then spend little or no time completing it and signing.
