  • Awful support. Quick to take your money

    Terrible service

  • One suggestion...

    By Kmalbrecht
    App makes things easier to keep track of small details that come along with running a business. I would suggest to add the ability of adding notes to an invoice when manually marking it paid. I would like to document on there how the invoice was paid i.e., check no., Venmo, PayPal, etc..
  • Will not let me unsubscribe.

    By Dryn Ball
    I’m trying to unsubscribe and the cancel account link is just far enough below my screen that it doesn’t let me scroll up and hit the button. They designed the final cancel subscription button to not be accessible. Funny thing is that I was OK with the company just didn’t need the service anymore and could have become a customer again in future. Now I dislike this company and will never return as a customer.
  • Terrible interface

    By JolieJean
    Cannot see all information on phone due to newer reconfiguration. The bold text makes it impossible to see current estimated tax figure. This same issue occurs in other areas as well with no ability to change font size. Terrible interface.
  • Suggestion

    By Toni Christofaro
    Not calculating all my trips but calculating trips I never went on. Some are in the middle of the night.
  • Doesn’t login

    By Imaginari
    Well, trying to use the app again and it’s not working at all. Attempting to login results in an error that says “Sorry, something went wrong.” Duh!
  • Beautiful interface

    By Dbanks89
    Great ease of use
  • Worth Every Penny

    By Parkerohana
    Many great features. Super convenient and very easy to use. Highly recommended
  • Do not miss out on this app

    By rachelleksb
    I’m a self employed cosmetologist (Sole Proprietor) and a mom of a toddler. This app essentially runs my business for me. My time is valuable, the reason I chose to work for myself was so I could work on my terms and quickbooks makes that super easy. It tracks EVERYTHING I need.
  • Not reliable and clunky design

    By Amarillomakeup
    My miles are not being tracked correctly, when I go in to correct it manually, it still displays add the wrong distance. Only a small portion of last years transactions were showing up. I could import them over from my bank but how can I be sure once I do that there aren’t some that are repeated. I’m having to double check everything. What a head ache. Will be canceling and finding something that doesn’t create more work and stress.
  • Terrible update

    By hates update 246
    The update to that app killed all functionality. I had quite a lot of information I used daily to run my business on the dashboard and that is all gone now. Now there is a stupid QB assistant where you have to guess what to type in to get reports that aren’t what you could get before. Now if I want to compare months (I could see this immediately before) I literally have to run reports for each month and hand right it down. It’s the only way to know if I’m on my targets. For a small business owner every dollar counts and every second is valuable. Whoever designed this new version is very very very out of touch with what the customers need. Plus it won’t remember how you prefer viewing the dashboard. You also can’t see a total of your mileage anymore. Everything is big and ugly. Just terrible!!
  • This app used to be great

    By dando1215
    Not sure exactly why they changed the app. It used to be great and now it looks like it’s for children and not business professionals.
  • Lame

    By vagstar
    Why is the mileage not working like every other day? I just subscribed to this but I can keep track of my miles myself and save the $120 a year.
  • Self-Employed

    Just not sync between my phone and iPad which causes a lot of extra work!
  • Amazing

    By Smokedogg310
    It’s been helping out so much
  • Best tax app

    By JustAGuyFrom330
    This is the best tax app. I'm getting a refund and I never get a refund. This is my 1st year as a home busines.
  • Mileage tracker

    By Jeshrs
    The mileage tracker needs improvement. I travel somewhere and if I stop for the slightest amount of time it ends the trip and starts a new one. This is a pain considering most anywhere I go I may stop at a store and get gas or food. Just adds more work to something that is to take away from working so much.
  • Exactly what I needed.

    By charlietoon92
    The mileage tracker and expense sorting features are absolute must-haves for self employed freelancers. Plus it just feels so good to swipe those purchases toward expenses! Like tinder for taxes. Thanks quickbooks.
  • Stealing your money

    By krush nu u2
    I’ve been getting charged monthly by QuickBooks but haven’t had access to my receipts/ lcontent. For the past 4-5 months In app it says my subscriptions has expired keeps trying to make me select a new subscription plan MORE EXPENSIVE than the one Theyre STILL CHARGING me for. No! refund me my money. No one has gotten back to me on either Apple or Intuit’s side and I’m STILL being billed monthly. This app is trash.
  • Milage

    By Mak's Cleaning LLC
    When entering a milage record manually, it would be efficient to NOT have to look up the distance. This app should automatically pull in the distance from start to end point - since the map is already powered by Google.
  • Great for business

    By Amym979
    Nice way to track income, expenses for business. I just wish you could track volunteer mileage or expenses the same way
  • Don’t get this app

    By SharonSauer
    Very hard to use I am trying to unsubscribe
  • Awesome map but it's a GPS killer making it a no go

    By vortex44
    One of the best things about this application is its ability to track your location and let you quickly classify driving miles. Of course this takes GPS. But I'd like some applications that simply check to see if you're in motion and then how much how far etc. and decide whether not there going to drain your battery LOL this is always on always using it and can kill an iPhone 7 Plus battery in less than eight hours. That's just not acceptable. it was extremely disappointing and totally killed one of the best features of this application. It is not practical to have to go into settings privacy locate the application and change the GPS use from never do you always every time you're going to make a business related trip. If you turn it on and forget to turn it off you'll quickly notice that because it only if you hours your battery will be drained.
  • Would be great to speak with a person.

    By doggievangogh
    Had some issues. Cancelled the subscription in haste. Have been trying to renew the subscription but there is no one to speak with.
  • Drain

    By drpeppapig
    This app was good but latest version is sucking battery faster than a Tesla model S at full throttle in ludicrous mode! Please fix
  • App has changed

    By kelseykincaid
    I used to love using this app to keep track of my mileage....but now I can’t even access my mileage from the past year for taxes. I called one support number and they tried to get me to pay $200 for technical support, called a different customer service number and the only option was to talk to a robot. Well, none of the five things she’s programmed to help with are my issue. Just trying to get my mileage so I can do my taxes..should be simple right? Not anymore. Definitely won’t be using this app in the future.
  • App won’t work on my iPhone

    By D637
    This app seems to work ok on my computer but not on my iPhone so in turn it won’t track my miles. Every time I tap the icon to open it my screen goes black and it just shuts off the app. I have no problems with any other apps and my phone is only 1 year old so I’m not sure what the issue is.
  • Business from your palm

    By Prakashro
    You can run your whole business from the palm of your hand
  • not good anymore

    By CoffeeRocks
    yeah i liked the old setup way better. the new update blows
  • Love it

    By QMS events
    Keeps my buisness financial part organized. Less work for me. Tax invoices at the end of the year. Just print and go. Clients invoices created by the fingertips. Love love love it. 😊
  • Should I come back?

    By Emeril01
    I used to really like this app a couple years ago but found out it was double tagging my income when they came thru in pending status. I want to come back because my accountant likes quickbooks format better the other one I was using. It looks like you have done tons of updating—- please assure me this isn’t going to happen again :) I really don’t need all the bells and whistles of traditional quickbooks.
  • Quick-Rundown

    By 19Jacob84
    I like the app for sure. I get complacent with keeping up with my receipts and have issues with them fading come tax time. Taking a quick picture and having the ability to categorize quickly by swiping is great. The one thing I would suggest to set this app over the top is the ability to add receipts onto your profile offline. I spend a lot of time out of service or some of the places I visit, my reception is bad. Unless you have 4G LTE, you will struggle with accessing your profile. If it would allow you to add expenses offline then auto update your profile when you get back to civilization, that would be GREAT!!!

    By slizzerandhiss
    All of my materials and supplies expense transactions from the last quarter are GONE. I have yet to have anyone connect with me about this issue. Hiring an accountant instead, because the taxes I’ll be paying from not having those deductions and the piece of mind of having a flesh and blood human are well WORTH IT.
  • Not Enough

    By jprodgr
    If you need a COGS category they don’t have it, if you need a philanthropic donation category they don’t have that either. I just installed this app and that’s all I’ve found so far, I’m sure there are more things this app is lacking and I think I’m going to need to cancel and try something else. This is the third Intuit product I’ve tried and I’ve had to cancel and get a refund on all of them. I keep thinking they’ll have something that works but I’m now beginning to think I need to get away from all Intuit products.
  • Dont like it only one good feature.

    By kalvin66
    Better if you use your bank account
  • New user

    By StlKaren
    Learning a little bit more each day. Can’t believe I waited this long to try this out.
  • Road warrior

    By Highwayhank61
    It’s supposed to be for self employed and yet when you attempt to do your taxes it wants W2 info no place for 1099 info which is what you get for being self employed it’s a waste of money if you have to do everything manually why pay a monthly fee when there are other programs that do the same thing for free disappointed to say the least ready to do my taxes now I’m scrambling because of this app
  • great app

    By delta charlie sod
    love it
  • No thanks

    By imortant info
    No thanks
  • Do not trust

    By dbuttzz
    Does not sync with Turbo Tax. When following the chat persons instructions I lost all data including all I needed for 2018.
  • Keeping track of expenses and mileage

    By Goodness shall follow me
    Very nice work. First time to use this app. I like it
  • Kenneth Lame/ Owner:Lame Farms Inc

    By Land Management Specialist
    This app has been a blessing to have available to my business. I have had a lot of problems with keeping up with my business information and invoices. I downloaded this app and it has never been easier for me to keep up with my business
  • Minor complaint

    By widhfbcb29387:!.?:!
    It was difficult to delete old checking info.
  • Yuck

    By ColeReed2389
    Pretty crappy and keeps charging me even though I cancelled my subscription.
  • Camera option causes seizures

    By beebreethisoptionisstupid
    well it could, because it is spastic and makes me want to delete the app after uploading three receipts. the old normal quikbooks app is far superior
  • New Update is horrible!

    By GianlucAudio
    I’ve been a long time user of this app and the recent update is horrible and ugly. I liked to view my expense and profit per month on a graph and now they replaced that graph. I was able to quickly compare last years number with this years but I can’t any longer. Please SWITCH BACK to graph mode.
  • 100% useless

    By Ape Twin
    Failed to work on the very first trip. App: “Take a drive. We’re ready to tack your trips.” Drove 57 miles to job site. It tracked nothing at all. Also, when these mileage apps work at all they’re way more work than a physical log book. One trip that includes multiple drives from worksite to a shop or hardware store creates a dozen individual trips that have to be categorized while the physical log book you just make a single entry at the end of the day. Useless.
