App Reviews

  • It’s the best.

    By Kallis Construction
    Once you get your items input, you’re on the way to a fast and easy estimate and sending invoices.
  • Amazing

    By Dave.1043
    This app was great when it first became online. We started using it shortly after it was introduced. I am CEO of Ultra Exteriors, Inc. I can’t rate the app highly enough. Every home improvement contractor should use it except my competitors. Our estimates look so professional Compared to theirs and that get me the job many times even if we are are charging more. It makes us look like we are more professional. The new features allows us to turn the estimate to an invoice is about 5 seconds and get a signature on the IPad. We can get our clients financed and collect the job all from the app. The money transferred directly into our bank. Thank you Joist team! Your are making it better every day!

    I can’t say enough good things about the Joist app! I started out using it occasionally for estimates and invoices. Because of the amazing support team and the incredibly user-friendly interface, I have moved to using it exclusively for all of my estimates and billing. The app has been updated regularly, and each time they have added valuable services that only make it better for my business. I recently signed up for their credit card processing service, and I’ve been thrilled with the speed of payments. Customers can pay online with a credit card or electronic check as soon as they receive my invoice, and the money is quickly deposited directly to my account. **Please don’t tell the developers this, but I would have gladly paid for this app once I saw how insanely helpful it is.** It’s a must for any business, small or large. Thanks Joist!!! Keep up the great work!
  • Invoicing made simple

    By USARanger
    This app, has made my job easier as a Handyman! I am not a large company, so I don't have the resources to pay someone, to do this for me. It has made my life easier, as a result of the simplicity of the app. Gary
  • Like the invoicing and estimates, hate the payments

    By Nenealy
    We just started using joist and love the estimates and invoicing, but just signed up to accept payments and our first two invoice payments have been ‘flagged for review’. This potentially adds up to an extra 5 days between when your client pays and you receive your money. Of course, this isn’t mentioned in the receiving payments section of the Help Questions, but in the ‘why haven’t I received my money yet’ section of the help questions. It looks like I’ll be sticking to my former payment options.
  • Works well

    By Yarrr1122334567
    Love the app for estimating and invoicing, by far one of the best small business apps I’ve got but I cannot get the financing for home owners option to work and joist has literally no customer service which is why I have One star rating...
  • Owner

    By Handymanmall410
    By far one of the next apps for any small businesses wanting to be professional and keep records at the convenience of your phone. Thanks joist for making this helpful app available for companies at no cost.
  • Scam Artist stay away you will lose money

    By out $1000
    If your smart you will stay away from this app they have a credit card payment portion they set up my business my very first payment through them was a deposit of $1000 for a bathroom remodel and payment went through worked smoothly took the money no problem But then the next day when I expected the money to be transferred to my account they put a 30 to 90 day hold on the funds to be released to me saying your business is high risk for returns we can no longer offer payment processing On your account again this was my very first payment ever with them no history of refunds nothing first payment there a joke stay away or you will lose money
  • A couple of requests.

    By Arctu
    First let me say this is a fabulous app, there are just a couple things that would make it even better. Please make it standard to keep a draft of an email when sending an invoice, right now if you close the email it is deleted. Please make an option for adding multiple email addresses to a client’s account. Please connect the address line, the BCC and CC lines in email to the contact list. The way it stands I have to remember a second email address as it won’t let me copy/paste email address into the address bar of an email. I frequently send two sometimes three different people a copy of an invoice: property managers, owners, husbands and wives. Edit: after updating an invoice and re-sending it, there is no option to write another email to explain the edits or additions, the email is just sent Directly from the invoice page. It would be heavenly if there were a Calendar drop down in the description of a line item to show the date of each line item in the invoice. And so I can search my invoices by line item/date. This would help me match up materials with receipts as well. And this is just pie in the sky but it would be so cool to have a Calendar where I write down the work I’ve done for the day, for a particular client, and then hit “send to Joist invoice” but that’s just me dreamin’. Keep up the good work!
  • Financing

    By 43Beth
    This app used to be wonderful. Recently they’ve added a finance option for small monthly payments for the home owner only it comes out of my pocket after I’ve bought their materials and supplies. I am not a bank. I cannot afford someone’s home project on top of running my business and my personal bills. I added a note to my email and my estimate also states the payment schedule and that I do not offer financing. I did that in the beginning of starting my business and never received payment on the job. I suppose Joist wants you to go bankrupt with your business. If I do a 2 story and it takes me a month to finish and I don’t get paid until it’s finished I can’t go a month without pay then get a small payment while I pay for someone else’s materials. What are you guys thinking? Maybe give the contractor that option and stop changing my note on my email that says I do NOT offer financing.
