FreshBooks is a nifty accounting tool for iOS

Sarah Jacobsson Purewal | Feb. 4, 2013
FreshBooks is a free cloud-based accounting app that helps you manage clients and projects, send invoices, and track time, expenses, and estimates right from your iPhone. The app is compatible with the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 4.3 or later.

The estimates feature prepares quotes for you to offer your clients. Creating an estimate is similar to creating an invoice--it needs to be created with a client in mind-- but customers can accept them or return them with changes if need be. You can convert estimates into invoices once you've settled on a price.

The reports tab isn't really a feature--because reports "look best on your computer," according to FreshBooks, you can email reports to yourself to view them on a larger screen later.

Bottom line

FreshBooks is a convenient accounting app, especially if your business happens to be the right fit for what the app offers. While you can pick and choose specific parts of the app to suit your needs, FreshBooks really works best if you're running a business in which you have specific projects for different clients that involve billable hours. The first three clients are free; after that you'll have to pay between $20 (for 25 clients) and $30 (for unlimited clients) per month.
