This is a must if you are like me, we are a small building maintenance business with the need to estimate and invoice on the go, I run the joist app on my phone my iPad and also on any computer that’s got a internet connection where I just go into any browser and log in , with just the single account they all sync and see the same thing making it an awesome app, it looks, feels and works with a truly professional result with the simplest Of interfaces, it sends my customers a beautifully presented emailed estimate then when ready a top notch invoice, records payments full or part of and I can return to any previous to update make new or print for accounts..LIKE I SAID UNBELIEVABLE...Stephen Sparkes property maintenance Ipswich..

Was recommended the App by a fellow trades person.
I’ve found this App a really useful tool for my company. It easily allows me to carry out quotations and invoicing on my phone. It’s easy to use, prints directly from my phone to printer and when emailing quotes and invoice notify me when there opened.
A extremely useful App which is used almost daily.
One little thing I would like is if there was a way to layout my invoices in columns, as some of my work is sub contract and I have to layout gross amount, materials, labour, tax etc.
But apart from that 5* App keep up the good work Joist😃

For me this app is perfect for a sub contractor and is so easy to use and keep track of what payments are due I would recommend it to everyone. The only feature that would improve for me was if you could take 20% tax of as you need to do working for a lot of companies. You can do this under discount but if this could be changed to tax It would be perfect
