    Been using for a few years now works well and continue improving as well. When I first signed up a and created an account there was not a paid version ? Now they have a paid version and some features I’ve had are no longer available to me anymore? Would have been fair if it had been more reasonable to me atleast. Continue review after response from developer. Thanks for your reaching back but it did take about 4 times of sending you guys response s to your upgrade option. I understand the upgrades and charging but you should have atleast considered giving some of your customers who started with you since the beginning. This is what I tried to mention. Not asking for free stuff or anything like that just good old fashion business. The app is good by the way and has improved since the beginning keep up the good work.
  • Great App

    By Impy's Electrical Service LLC
    I've been using the Joist app for 2 years now. I'm an electrical contractor and the app is simple to use and provides my customers with detailed invoices and estimates. Even though some of the features are no longer free, compared to other professional invoicing apps it's a bargain. A well designed free invoicing app that produces a professional invoice/estimate is unheard of. I've researched many invoicing apps and Joist is by far the best for the money. The Joist app has so many options to allow my electrical business to keep accurate records and produce professional invoices.
  • Should not have had to pay for app.

    By AEH Services
    I payed for the app, because I need to show a client on an estimate price difference on 4 options of different fencing. I shouldn’t have had to pay, for something that was free. If your are gonna charge for it.. allow like 5 free pics if anything... I am going to get a refund ..

    There are so many things I like about Joist. There are some modifications that I hope will be made soon to make it a little more user-friendly.
  • I like it

  • Usage

    By triangle construction
    For the most part it is very useful. I think a couple more add ones will make it perfect. If the search engine on the desk top would be more precise instead of it being like I’m searching bath. Instead almost anything with the letters b a t h come up. Maybe allow us to create categories. If we are doing a bathroom remodel and instead of scrolling down to find all the line items I can go right to bath and it creates an estimate ready to go.
