I've been using joist for my construction business and it has helped me immensely. I like the way I can keep track of all my reimbursable purchases by adding them on the fly. It makes it so you don't have to forget your receipts and makes the invoicing very simple. I wouldn't mind paying for it.

Works great so far! Makes everything easier to track and invoice all together. Also works great online. Much better if you have to write a large estimate or invoice.

Excellent for my small business (2.7.2)
3/5/2017 7:53:00 AM 5/5 By Peanutbutter58
I started using this app when I started up my business a couple years ago. It saves a lot of time and running around knowing that my customers can sign for an estimate and you don't have to go back-and-forth with a piece of paper. There are just a few features that it doesn't have that would make it perfect for my business, but I work around those. But overall this app is outstanding.

A+ (2.7.2)

I love this app, I use it constantly to bid out my jobs and to invoice out. Plus it's great to see that the client has opened it so I know they received it. And for those pesky clients that want to say they didn't get it ha ha I see you! I only wish that I could use it offline and then when I got back to a wifi connection it would save. That's really my only beef is I can't use it with out a connection to internet.

Awesome App!! (2.7.1)
3/1/2017 1:43:00 PM 5/5 By TmacAir
Never written a review before... but this app save me so much time instead of creating hundreds of estimate by hand a year. It looks professional and helps me stay organize.

Dream app for contractors like me. (2.7.1)
3/1/2017 7:18:00 AM 5/5 By AVF youth
I absolutely love this. It does everything from saving my items to generating a contract. The e-signature is a nice feature as well. Keeps track of what payments have been made. The only thing that I wish it could do was connect to my bank/credit card and itemize purchases made for the particular job. If that happens I'll would give this 10 out of 5 stars

Great app so far (2.7.1)
2/28/2017 9:38:00 PM 5/5 By Fla30
Honestly I did use this app only for a week now. I did use probably three apps like this and this one is the one that I like so for the most. I would love for this app to have a percentage of profit that's the only thing I see that this app needs to improve, besides that this app is great!!

App isn't working (2.7.1)

Joist has saved me so much time and paperwork I love it. Joist was recommended to me by another contractor and I have been raving about it ever since! (2.7.1)
2/27/2017 7:01:00 AM 5/5 By Egraves&esposa
I have my estimator use a system that we paid an arm and a leg for, it's very in depth and takes a while to create the estimate. However it is a great system. I keep Joist for myself and whenever I have personally done an estimate it's the only system I use. I give an estimate on-site each time I have used Joist and won each bid for that reason. Great app if you have the experience in your trade to bid on the job!

This app is great for my business, I love it and my Invoices are very professional THANK YOU.

The best. (2.7.1)
2/26/2017 7:14:00 AM 5/5 By Tilemedallion
I have been using this app for awhile now. It is simply the best. I can start an invoice at home on the desktop then adjust & finish it on the job with the iPhone. Then email it instantly to the customer when the job is complete. It has made invoicing and estimating a breeze. Thank you!!!

Great App! (2.7.1)

Allows you to put your business # on your invoices, send to you and customer and lots of minor details that other apps don't have...
