Great app, I use all the time, so easy to use,nothing complicated about it, unlike Quick Books, you don't need a accountant to use it, it does what most businesses need at least sevice based business, and the staff is super friendly and helpful I've used this for years it's perfect for what I need, I'm going to upgrade to the pro version soon. Best invoicing and estimate app out there love it.

Joist has been very helpful in creating and sending estimates and invoices quickly. It does lack some essential features however, two major ones that I've encountered so far are: 1) not being able to add markups to individual line items, you have to add your mark-up to the entire bid. 2) not being able to hide the tax on the invoice/estimate.

I like the app from the contractor side, but not from the customer's. Clients have to close ad on their phone to see the button to expand the document. After scrolling thru the document, they have scroll back to the top and click on ... to find the sign button. Not intuitive at all. I don't need to be tech support.

Hey Pete, thanks very much for this feedback. There's definitely room for improvement here and we'll take this under advisement. We always want the customer side of the app to be as fast and easy to use as the contractor side of the app and I assure you we're continuing to develop and improve both sides of the app.
