Phenomenal App! (2.7.7)
6/20/2017 3:07:13 PM 5/5 By ProCleaner
I was an early adopter of this app and have nothing but the HIGHEST of praises and accolades. Easy to use and adaptable to my business type (cleaning). Simple invoicing which tracks "when" customers open/view their invoices. There's no more "I didn't get your invoice via email." "Yes you did, you opened and viewed it on XX date"...LOL. Truly great, easy to use, compatible with Air Printers, and quarterly invoicing reports are a cinch. Get it now. @RealFaithLife.

A great addition to my small business (2.7.7)
