I'm so grateful to come across this app. I run my entire painting company off this app and software. It's very user friendly and many of my clients and customers have raved about Joist as well.

Great App. Room for Improvements (2.6.0)

This is definitely a five star application with what it currently offers, Specifically considering it's free. There is room for the addition of options and operation, However; considering what it offers at the cost, I highly recommend this app. Especially if your a small paperless Company trying to stay up to date and organized. I'll continue to use this app unless they discontinue it.

This app is extremely convenient for invoicing on the spot. It's easy, transfer the data quickly, and enables me to collect funds immediately rather than mailing an invoice. Love it.

I entered my password 5 times, and it's a long password, and I already wrote a review, but that's seriously how I feel about this app. You guys are helping me big time and I think you deserve a darn good review. I needed this, and so, you shall receive an excellent review: Guys, it's good. And free. And the notifications when someone opens the email, beautiful. Just beautiful. Cheers.
