Customer Reviews

Very basic and definatly not the best app in its field

It's a very simple application. You take a picture of a receipt and it lets you fill out fields and uses OCR to insert the receipt total. It would be nice it had auto crop and scanned and generated all the fields listed on the receipt like the amount taxable, the tax rate, maybe self categorization using a data base of merchants. Each time a user categorizes a receipt it records the merchant category field into a data base that over time allows for an educated guess on receipt categories. I also don't like how the receipt cannot be moved or edited after you verify it. You have to delete the receipt and start over. It's also much slower than other apps. I just wish their was one simple app that tracked spending and earnings, filed my reciepts, generated customer invoices, tracked and calculated my quarterly taxes and helped me figure out what to put aside per each incoming transaction in pre selected categories each month: and also help generate a weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly budget and earnings or loss projetions.

Functional but simple; desperately needs updating

The app works for what it’s supposed to do, but it’s very basic. For one, the UI is very outdated and looks to be designed for iOS 6. It’s alarming that the app hasn’t seen more attention since then. It also needs better image processing; I’d prefer it processed (rotate, crop, monochrome, etc) images into PDFs like Scanner Pro. Processing should be faster, too.

All of that said, it really does do what it needs to, if only the minimum: it lets me handle business expense receipts and interfaces with the Wave accounting site/software. If you’re in the Wave ecosystem, it works. It’s just not great a great experience and deserves some attention.

Slow and problematic

Slow to open, slow to take pictures of receipts, slow to upload and then you have to be very diligent since it often gets the details wrong - as in inputting negative balances or changing the date of a transaction from 2016 to 1620. Hadn't been updated in over a year so clearly it's been abandoned.

Also - the categories you have established in your account are not the same as the ones the app has available so you have to upload to wrong categories and then adjust manually when you are back at a computer and logged into your account. Makes using waveApps in general useless. Looking for a better platform now for my business accounting needs.
