  • Receipt scanning is awesome, other things mediocre

    By Zarb Ebner
    To start, I will say that scanning receipts is extremely easy and time efficient. Now that I’ve had it for half of a year I can see that my habit of documenting all my business expenses has improved tenfold. I would recommend this app for that alone. HOWEVER… how do I export & add up the total amount of money I spent on, say, equipment alone? I don’t see a way to easily get numbers like that, meaning even though I scanned hundreds of receipts to be recorded digitally, I’m going to have to go back in 1 by 1 and add up all of those… not looking forward to that for tax season. If there’s a way to do this someone please let me know. My other suggestions for this app would just be to add a dark mode, and resolve some of the bugs such as items not always being saved when you add them to an invoice.
  • Limits accounting functionality available

    By AtDendel
    Can only access sales/invoicing or paid functionality. No access to transaction details/data, making the app useless for us. We’ll have to continue utilizing the browser instead.
  • Trash

    By Mouse918603
    Don’t waste your time. Customer Service is horrible. If you have an issue without a payout or refund you can go ahead and count that as a loss to your business. Please read the Better Business Bureau reviews before using this software for your company. Free ain’t always free. Only rated 1 star because I couldn’t rate 0.
  • Update made app worse

    By User 45609
    Ever since updating the app I’m running into more bug issues than ever what’s going on with the update? Can I reinstall the older version ?
  • Recent update fails - app doesn’t open

    By Katushka09
    I use this app on a weekly basis for my business. Never really had issues. Was forced to update to the last update and now the app doesn’t even open. Restarted phone. Reinstalled the app. Doesn’t open.
  • Subscription required for uploading receipts

    By FUNK09
    This is a service that used to be free then was taken away only to be readded but only with a paid subscription?!? Useless app without this functionality.
  • Review of recent pushed update

    By Ninja Nerdle
    The app as a whole is serviceable and a decent alternative to intuit’s unintuitive, and quite pricey, product lineup. That said, the recent update keeps crashing the app, overheating my phone and lagging enough to make it all but unusable. It’ll work fine enough to let me type a million things, but when i go to hit done or save the invoice, it’ll drag it’s feet until it either quits or speeds through catching up and all the random button presses i hit in the meantime will jack up my service notes. I really wish i could downgrade. Let sleeping dogs lie. I’m not sure what you were trying to accomplish with the recent updates but i don’t think you squashed any bugs.
  • No native iPad support

    By Emeraldayotte
    Hard to give this app anything more than 2 stars since this is just a port. Seriously it’s 2024; how do we not have an iPad native app for true business owners to use?
  • Only an invoicing app

    By limey01879
    I’ve been using wave accounting online for about 12 years. It has served my small nonprofit well. I just use it for bookkeeping. Sadly the app doesn’t have any of the book keeping features I use. I can’t see my bank information or balance. Cannot categorize transactions. So I’m disappointed because this app is nothing like the web version in any way I use it so I guess I’m back to the web version. Just let us know if there are any plans to introduce bookkeeping to this app or if there’s another app for that use.
