Review by Joaquin A. Aguilar

This is app works!!! - I bought this app some months ago…I did not understand it at first so I bought YNAB; but after trying it again, I got to understand the way it works. I hava organized a Small Business with this app and I have found this app to be full of good surprises. I can take pics of all my receipts and place them as attachments on every log + I can add invoces directly from my Numbers templates on the entries I make. I also like the way I make invoices and track time. I am not an accountant; but this app has helped me to see my cash flow and understand my operation expenses and earnings better. I can say that I have made more money as a result of organizing my business with this app…Thanks..:-). The graphics and report charts are not pretty…I think a real accountant thought of this app; it reflects on its looks… it goes to the point in a very monochromatic style and without any textures..ha..ha..:-) Thanks for the has helped me a lot..I can't wait to see the future versions.

Review by MacShanghai

Not user friendly and no tutorials - I am struggling to get this software to work for me. So far I haven't been able to set it up to create a project and generate an invoice. I regret my purchase. The Help manual is woefully inadequate and there are no tutorials to be found anywhere. I have written the developer to ask for help and will amend my review if they get back to me.
