  • Needs some work.

    By Dontyoudare
    I do like this app. I have used it for years but I has a couple major issues I’d like to see fixed. First off and most importantly, sometimes the bids are never delivered. They are sent through the app itself so there is no outbox to check. I have had several people complain that they never received my bid. I have sent the same bid multiple times today and it was never delivered. Who knows how much money this has cost me over the years. There is an option to also send it to yourself so I can confirm that they are not being received. The only other complain I have is that you can only attach one photo at a time. It makes it really time consuming when you have to add twenty photos and the app crashes before you save it.
  • Works great

    Love it
  • A couple of problems...

    By psbuckley
    Chatted with Joist about moving the “Chat with Joist” / “Leave a message” button away from the scroll bar at the right side on every browser. Pretty much fell on deaf ears - “it’s part of a third party chat app and we have no control...” Also, why does creating an invoice and adding a line item delete the signature? How about deleting the signature only if a line item is changed??? Adding a line item should preserve everything above including the signature. Adding a line item would then require a new signature for the new items. 1. Aaaaaaaaaaa 2. Bbbbbbbbbbb 3. Ccccccccccc Signature______________ 4. Ddddddddd 5. Eeeeeeeee Signature________________
  • Invoices in pdf

    By JenesisA
    I used to be able to send all documents as a PDF and some companies keep requesting me to change this feature back to a PDF, has joist changed this feature because I have not changed my settings since getting this app. Other wise I will have to look for a new option. PLEASE HELP
  • Works great! Can’t wait for more features

    By Usbuild
    I like new “add deposit” feature, in addition would be really nice to have “ask for payment” feature so if I need to send the same invoice later showing deposit amount and request for second payment.
  • So far so good

    By Ojjk
    I love this app it is super easy to use I'm a small business owner JJK Contracting and we've tried a few other estimating apps quiet similar to be honest but joist doesn't have in app purchases and it allows us to create as many estimates as possible where as the other apps would limit the amount. My favorite feature is one click of a button I can turn a estimate into a invoice. I don't know how much longer this app will be free before they turn it into a paid subscription based app but I hope the price isn't too ridiculous. Thanks again guys keep it going. How long can something this good stay free.
  • Best app for contractors

    By Enjoyc8

  • Contractor-proof!

    By old soul John
    Great, easy to use app. Build and send invoices and estimates on the go. Just scratching the surface, but very impressed thus far!
  • Love it.

    By eddie8157
    I flip houses and I run into so many contractors and laborers that just write estimates on the back side of a card instead of an actual invoice or estimate. I love showing them how easy it is to use this app. It makes them and me look a little more professional. It’s FREE and easy to use. Great features. I’d easily pay $30 for this app. Hopefully they don’t read that part of the review.
