Customer Reviews

  • Vise pres

    by Anthony j Rodriguez

    I love this app

  • Great app!

    by boardinsocal

    The Quickbook app is so convenient! Works great, very easy interface!

  • Nice program with familiarity

    by Marco Doug Sr

    QB Online is a definate step up in acctng, beyond the desktop. If you use QB desktop, you can master this version with a little help from the qbo support staff. They are very helpful. Give it a chance; access to your information from anywhere is very handy. :-)

  • Boss

    by God's Child 3⃣1⃣7⃣

    GREAT!! You can conduct Business in the Palm of your Hand!! No need to sit in office all day!!


    by LBOOKER

    I absolutely love this app! I have online Quickbooks that I use with this app. Every time I make a transaction I update my books write at the point of the transaction. This way I don't have to remember at a later time what I did! I love that u can take a pic inside the transaction as well! GREAT JOB!!

  • Biz App

    by Carl Alleyne

    Love it!

  • Simple and powerful

    by Dbalbi

    Saving me a great deal of time. I can keep up with my bookkeeping on the fly rather than waiting till I get home. Integration with my bank account and credit card processor means that I always have an up to date picture of my finances.

  • Finally, this app is usable!

    by matt-parker

    I used to stay completely frustrated with this app and only used it when it was absolutely necessary. Now with the last few rounds of updates the app is usable and doesn't give you a headache trying to enter data. I look forward to more improvements.

  • Getting there...

    by MrAw-some

    Intuit has certainly made vast improvements with their app but have a ways to go yet. You MUST add basic reporting.

  • Quickbooks!

    by Mr Mambo!

    I absolutely love this app!

  • Great app must have

    by STI2014

    If u run a business you most have this app. This is the best way to manage your company & have all your data on demand

  • Would like expense capabilities

    by _ValleGirl

    Comparing this to others like freshbooks it is not as intuitive to use, is very cumbersome, not as elegant, and lacks any sort of expensing feature. May only be worth using for account overview you can see online.

  • Nice and simple app

    by Mkwong

    I just start using it , I like the mobile version on the go to combine with the desktop version. I like to be able to add pictures to my product as well when invoice my customer. The import file feature is good direction,but still needs some adjustment for transferring the exact data over.

  • Quick books - best way to organize my business !

    by Yolanda Ruano

    It made my life much easier ! I can look up my clients anywhere I go and make invoices or estimates right from my phone and send them instantly ! Love it

  • I love it

    by MpcMpc

    It saves me a lot of time by having the ability to take pictures of the receipt and not having a pile to scan by the end of the week! That alone makes it well worth it.

  • Nice...with one flaw

    by Klmsilver

    It's very simple to use, but please make it so we can enter a payment other than swiping a card on the same day an invoice is due. It's silly to have to wait until the next day to input a check or cash. The desktop version allows this.

  • So far so good

    by Dayrocket

    I really enjoy working on my laptop using quickbooks- and being able to simultaneously be using my phone to take pictures of receipts and having them update instantly... It's magical-

  • Good alternative to fresh books

    by Bmanner

    Has great features, iPhone app is rich

  • Good alternative to fresh books

    by Bmanner

    Has great features, iPhone app is rich

  • Everything I need

    by Very small business owner

    It works great! I can add transactions with ease on the go: estimates, expenses, bill paid, and more. I can enter a new client or subcontractor or supplier while sitting in my mobile office (my truck). I do wish it had a home page that gave overall balance info though.

  • Always getting "Your Session Expired" error

    by Terence Patrick

    For over a week I cannot login to the app because it says "Your Session Expired" every single time I try to sign in to my account. I tried rebooting, hard restarting, deleting the app, restarting, then reinstalling, and still cannot log in. I can access my QBO account from my MacBook Pro via safari just fine. But not on my iPhone. Total waste.

  • Need P&L and Balance Sheet!!!!!!!

    by Veroherr12

    I don't understand why you can't add that? That would make this app much better

  • This app stinks!

    by C-Scout

    Quick books is awesome! This app is crap, how they put their name on this is amazing. I hope they update soon!!!!

  • Not Ready For Primetime

    by MccoyMeyer

    I have been having repeated issues with the program crashing, and no one at QuickBooks' support seems to know how to help. The program is still new and it's kind of buggy. Looking forward to revisions.

  • Useless

    by John #939

    I can deal with my customer accounts when I'm at my PC. When I'm in meetings on the go, I need to pull reports. This function is not on here? That would be the whole point of this app for me. My time writing this review to voice this to other potential users was more valuable than the time it took me to download this app.

  • Terrible

    by Jk4545

    This app is so slow. Maybe it is because we had 1500 customers, but it was virtually useless. Also, the search feature only allows search of names not of addresses, account numbers or any other criteria. If you just need access to your customer information… Create a report in your QuickBooks and email it as a PDF... Then copy it and past into your notes in your iPhone. The new iOS has a search so you can find phone numbers, customer names, addresses etc. works much better for what we needed. Also, I have successfully used logmein on my iPhone for over two years now so with that you can have full access to your file by tapping into your computer remotely. I had to wait 20 minutes on the phone to cancel this quickbooks mobile subscription. It did not even giving me the option to cancel online… What an aggravation. Typical intuit fashion.

  • Worthless

    by LeeLeeduh

    Everytime I open this app up to do something, I realize this app doesn't do it.

  • Half way there

    by Colablanca

    It lacks of the ability to see vendors, that is a bad for my needs

  • Expenses is US only

    by Andy_tt

    My main goal for the app would be for employees to enter their expenses directly into quickbooks. However, the mobile app does not allow expenses for any country other than the US so it is entirely useless for me.

  • Michelle

    by Favorite girl 12435

    Everything is good so far, hopefully we can create a purchase order from our iPad or iPhone soon

  • Great app!

    by duffGeiger

    Would like to see direct integration with the card reader instead of going to a different app and re typing the items. Time entry would be nice too.

  • Awesome!

    by JediNightStalker

    Wonderful App!

  • Would like more features

    by FritzAmmer

    What this app does, it does well. I am in love with the ability to snap a photo of my receipt and save it with the expense entry. This would be a 5-star app if it had all the same features as the website, especially the ability to see account balances.

  • For the road

    by Joe A P 89

    I like it because wend you are out of the office and you need to send and estimate or an invoice you can do so in your smart phone, I like that convenience. I recommend it if you are self employed.

  • Great

    by Schenker77

    I want to be able to take a picture of receipts and add them instantly.

  • Owner operator

    by Moes cleaning service llc

    App is great life saver if you run mobile service and need to make invoices on go just get a air printer with direct printing you have it made beats hand writing invoices and it keeps track what you do, However I do have small issue when I go to invoices it scrambled all invoices paid overdue and current they should be in groups not all over place. Few more functions wouldn't hurt If invoice issue gets fixed I will give it five out five This is good app to have at least for me and my business.

  • It's ok

    by wilfredo nunez

    I don't like that online or on app you can't move through invoices or estimates or even checks like you could on software version. That needs to be improved.

  • Wow. Great for mobile access!

    by Treeman54

    I have been waiting for someone to develop a great app to work with my QuickBooks. Great job and it seems to be getting better and better!

  • CEO

    by Av custom design

    Best App in my iPhone. Don't even need to be in the office at all. Great job Quickbooks!!!!!!

  • Intuit Mobil app

    by David Sands

    Wish I could capture signatures on invoices. Other than that it is a very user friendly, easy to use software with a lot of functionality.

  • Great

    by B-rent11

    Great so far. Easy to use and great tools

  • Fantastic app!!

    by LoverofHispresence2013

    This makes keeping track of my business so much easier. Very organized and I can use it on the go. No more double entry. So excited about the time it's already saving me!

  • No profit and loss statement.

    by fci Florence

    This would be a great app, best out there....if they would add profit and loss reports. Just stupid to leave that part out.

  • Invaluable

    by boblmartens

    An invaluable app for our small farming operation. Highly recommended.

  • Best App Ever

    by hillcountryhotshots

    I have had the app since day one and has been good. Every update has been even better. This is a must have for anyone whether you have a Buisness or just want to keep up with your money and taxes. Keep up with the good updates.

  • Big help to my small business

    by TooCoolNP

    Really love it. It makes my small business really manageable. It is always a challenge come tax time. My New Years resolution is to be more organized. This app helps a lot

  • Big help to my small business

    by TooCoolNP

    Really love it. It makes my small business really manageable. It is always a challenge come tax time. My New Years resolution is to be more organized. This app helps a lot

  • Great

    by NTPaint

    Big help in the field and on the go!

  • iPhone Quick Book App


    Very convenient App to have when your away from your computer. Hopefully more functionality such as: creating invoices, viewing P&L reports and making changes to employer payroll. Great App!

  • Great App!!!!!

    by Mobolaji Oke

    Working on my iPhone is very easy. I can process invoice, estimate and many more on the go. I don't have to wait till I get it office to process transactions. I love this app. Great job!

  • Not for management

    by mrjamesmartin

    The app will work for a bookkeeper or someone sending invoices and receipts but with no financial statements or reports it won't work for management. They appear to have pulled down their iPhone friendly site with the release of this app which is unfortunate. I'll try again when they catch up this app with that sites functionality and update this review accordingly.

  • Awesome

    by Aloacrl

    Best addition to my business yet!

  • Might be alright if GoPayment worked

    by VY kicker

    Overall process too confusing, too many steps ended up creating three accounts, two Non-functioning merchant svs accts and is still not resolved after two weeks. I guess that's the price for change.

  • Love this app!!

    by Tha Original Mistaluv

    So easy to use and fast at getting out quotes or estimates...without the computer!!

  • Would be better

    by Guy Bachar

    I really love the whole idea of this app but it would be nice if I can see inventory levels of products and also if I can give the sales people access to inventory without having to give them access to everything. Make this app able to be used as a sales took as well. Otherwise it works good for what it has now.

  • One of my best app

    by EPOK USVI

    Very functional app I can work from any where.

  • Pointless

    by Sam Smeadley

    I don't invoice people. All I want is to access my books, see a snapshot of my accounts and look at my register. This is useless for me. I can't even see a basic report?

  • Great app.

    by Finishtiming

    Helps me keep track of everything. Especially useful now that expenses can be put in with pictures.

  • Needs to put work "into it"

    by Agdkfkorjfr

    Still needs a lot of work. Time tracking, expense tracking, and reporting. Time sheet approval. Intuit is falling behind Xero. Intuit will be soon be Microsoft and Blackberry, slow to innovate, and will always trying to play catch up.

  • Thanks

    by Timothy Hoffman

    Great app for a small business.

  • Operations

    by Fashion Church Suits

    So far so good...

  • Great app! QBO in your pocket

    by D Cable Guy

    I made the switch from QuickBooks desktop to QuickBooks online and now use the QuickBooks iOS apps extensively. They have been very user-friendly. I'm also happy with the updates that come frequently. Overall they have done a very good job with the app.

  • Lack of function

    by Oneislandboy

    To limited!

  • AWESOME!!!

    by Games2003

    Works great n keeps things well organized. Great on the go!!!

  • Display issues

    by pperrinjan

    Just signed up and I can't even enter my company info because the form is too large for the iPhone--no scrolling, can't navigate to another screen, just annoying. Functionality is probably great if you are on a computer, but I need a mobile app.

  • Update is worse

    by puzy

    Cannot see dates of payments without clicking on them. Use to before latest update. When I stated using this app, there was no way to enter expenses. Had to mark them as "customer payments". Didn't want to change my format mid year, hope it's easier to use 2014. Also, it's uglier, I think.

  • Best!

    by EMU Pro

    Love it.

  • Awesome App

    by Mckynzyy

    Love it!!! Just wish it had the option to add more lines when editing an existing invoice. Otherwise, it's a great app.

  • Excelente app

    by Jimmy6214

    Recomendado full

  • Just Basic Reports, Please

    by JJunk

    I love this app. Intuit has done a great job recently of updating it and significantly improving the interface. Please, though, please provide the ability to run profit / loss and balance sheet reports. Just these most basic of reports would instantly make this app way more usable for me. The iPad app is similar in use but features this ability which I appreciate. Also, the mobile website to login and run these reports on the go is absolutely hideous - so if that is improved I'll be more forgiving of the app's lack of any reporting. Otherwise, this app is a huge improvement over past efforts, works really well, and looks sharp. Thank you for staying on top of the big fixes.
