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.

The Update looks nice, but very poor functionality

I've used the pervious version, as well as the new one, and it just plain needs work. I love Wave and really need this app to stay on top of business expenses, but the app is slow, freezes, does not process as well as it used to and even sometimes loses the stuff I'm adding.

When you save a receipt that has trouble processing, it can post to accounting without any warning. The problem is, it has trouble processing A LOT. I have to spend extra hours trying to clean it up.

The typing keyboard feature when leaving notes on receipts routinely skips and jumps while typing, making it very difficult and tedious to leave simple notes.

The new design is great. It looks fresh. I just wish it worked as good as it did prior to the major overhaul they did. I'll still be a customer of Wave, but this app really needs more work and QA.

Used to work great not anymore

Been using wave for several years but recently the receipts would take forever to upload and when they did a transaction would not appear even when I posted the receipt which means when I threw my receipt away there was no worry because it was conveniently attached to the transaction...not anymore the free apps are great when they work but why are they free...I think you get what you pay for...the concept is great but when I'm dealing with my money I think I am going to a paid app....
