Re: Joist App


Will i emailed joist and received a response....

What i sent,

Mobile App User

Hello

I have been using the joist app for a while and have come to enjoy it alot

I think that taking away the feature to add photos to invoices and requiring a upgrade to the pro version with a steep monthly fee is a pretty crappy thing to do

I cannot justify $10 a month to simply add photos to an invoice which was a really Handy feature before. I wouldnt mind a one time fee to pay because i know everything cant be free but to make the fee about the same as what i pay for quickbooks online is kind of excessive. I am on the contractor forum and the general consensus is that we all feel the same

Please reconsider
Thank you

AND here is the response i received back,

Re: Joist App


They got me. Paid up for the full
Year today. Estimate looks too unprofessional to me without the logo and the ability to attach some pics.

I send a ton of estimates and invoices through joist. I will ad .40 cents to every invoice to cover this new expense

Re: Joist App


Well i opened my big mouth too soon and now the app is crap again

I emailed them and basically said that i would think that paying for the pro version would include both syncing with QuickBooks and all of the features that used to be free instead of double charging

I said that the two combined is pretty much what I pay monthly for QuickBooks online which is ridiculous for a simple little estimating app

I can also attach pictures to my quickbooks online estimates and invoices that i already pay for so i need to get used to that instead since i already pay for quickbooks

Re: Joist App


I switched over to SimplySend, which I'm really liking. It's free and has the same features as Joist and then some. The only thing you have to pay for is payments if you do transactions through the app (2.9% rate for everything), if any of you guys are looking for that.

They seem to be part of a larger company called FieldPulse and using the app to get people to switch to their main app, which includes stuff like job scheduling.
Some companies only need digital estimates and invoices, and we want to help you grow your business. Maybe someday you’ll need the features available in the full FieldPulse platform like job scheduling, customer communications, timesheets, team updates, and more. If that doesn’t happen, SimplySend will always be free, so there’s no expense and no commitment.
Hope that helps some of you guys out who are also jumping ship.
