Good but the app is laggy

This app is super helpful, the main issue I have while using it is the lag. When inputting information the character count for it is super slow/delayed to where it forces me to stay on a certain page until it registers that information has been inputted. After inputting information and trying to click done at the bottom it will not register unless I swipe the keyboard away. Clicking done in the top right corner works half the time, with it also glitching and forcing me to start over everything by taking me back to whatever page I was on prior to creating a new contact or new invoice. The import from contacts button does not work at all and the layout to get to customers invoice is great after learning where it is. Not being able to see or input the expenses unless I pay for the quick receipt plan in app is kind of a bummer. I’m glad the option is still available online and the system works great and the amount of different charts available is super helpful.

Amazing App and service

I am a small electrical contractor In California. I have no employees so I don’t need any payroll type service but this app is great for everything else I need. Sending estimates, converting them to invoices, recording payments, bank and credit card transactions, etc... it’s made running my small busy super easy and clean. Two things I’d like to see improved:
1) When your bank account is connected and it tracks your transactions, it double records the money collected from jobs. For instance, if I have a job for $500, when I collect the money and record a payment from the invoice it adds that to my transactions. Then when I deposit the money in the bank from the job, it records it again which essentially makes it seem like I made $1,000 instead of $500. We usually just go in and delete the deposit transaction and keep the invoice deposit. Not a huge deal, just an extra step we have to take.
2) You can pre-fill what your estimates and invoices say so you don’t have to do it every time. However, when I write an estimate, the wording is different than my invoice. When converting the estimate to an invoice, it doesn’t automatically change the pre-filled wording from the estimate to the invoice. I have to do it manually and I always forget :D. Again, not a huge deal but would be a big help. Thanks wave team!

Fantastic mobile companion for Wave users

I use Wave for invoicing. This app has been incredibly helpful for times when I’ve been away from my desk but needed to refer to an invoice, check on payment status, record a payment, or any other of a number of additional tasks. For me, it isn’t a replacement for the full suite of tools and data available when accessing Wave from a computer. But isn’t trying to be — and that’s what makes the app great. In other words, the app seems to have been developed as a tool for accessing specific data or completing common tasks when you’re not at a computer. That clarity is evident when you use the app: it does what it’s supposed to do, and it does it well.

One more thing: I’m a freelancer who does work in two separate fields, and I manage the invoicing separately (a neat feature offered by Wave, where you can configure sub-accounts within one Wave account). I was very pleasantly surprised to see that the app supports switching between my two sub-accounts. That kind of functionality — the little stuff that’d be easy for them to overlook — is how you know this is a thoughtfully-developed app from a company that knows what it’s doing.
