  • Good App for our business

    By EpLittle Jumpers
    Been using this app for a while, easy and covers all needs. Now that is a fee for the pro version is kind of surprising but we got for it!!
  • Fantastic!

    By Scott Southworth Electric
    I took over my husbands electrical business, and having no idea how to run a business and write invoices, I found it this is the absolute most wonderful program it is fast efficient keeps everything on record and I can’t recommend it anymore highly it’s fantastic! My only problem is I lost my phone with all the information on it and I cannot find a regular computer program for this app for my desktop computer. The question I have is will this be compatible to add it onto a desktop computer, and Be able to sync with it? Thank you for a fantastic product I cannot recommend it anymore highly! I love it!
  • Used to be a good app

    By Bing Bong Mah Ding Dong
    The developers pulled a bait and switch tactic on everyone that’s been using this app for more than a few months. They created the free app, allowed people to get used to using it, and then decided to make you have to pay a monthly fee to continue using certain parts of the app that have been free up until this recent change. It’s incredibly unprofessional and low class. If you want people to pay for the app then add things to the app that weren’t already a part of the free app. Don’t take things away that have been a part of the app since it was first released and claim that it’s now part of the “Pro” package. If you want us to pay for the app then add features that make it worth paying for. Placing features that had previously been free behind a paywall is just laziness. Why bother being innovative and coming up w new ideas that people will want to pay for when you can just take things away that they’re used to using and make them pay $12/month to get them back. Unless it goes back to the way it was before, I’ll be finding another app to replace the Joist app and will no longer recommend the Joist app to all the contractors I know and work with. Such a shame when greed takes over.
  • Joist for construction

    By SeanSSRemodels
    Are use Joist every single day, it has not failed me it has not given me bug problems they are quick to get payments they are clear and in touch about your payments about estimates your invoices. I am thoroughly happy with this system it offers next level of professionalism and accountability. I would recommend This app to anyone running a business.
  • Pay service is third party. Unresponsive.

    By asdfqwerttuuj fsghf
    By far the worst for ease of pay. They use a third party pay service that does not respond. They are holding a payment from one of my customers hostage. Very slow to email you back. Unfortunately Joist suffers from that modern tendency to not have a call center. You are forced to try and resolve issues via chat. Same for the third party pay service. I swear a 2 minute phone conversation would solve this. The estimates are ok but don't waste your time using their pay now feature. You won't get your money.
  • 3.30.0 Don’t update/ No La Actualicen

    By ((NeverBack))
    Money Ruins Everything After you put them on the top this is the way they pay you. Charging you a monthly fee of $11.99 a month. Congrats you just win one less follower, I will uninstall this app right now, & help other developers grow up & repeat the same process help them grow that way they charge you. Quédate con la versión 3.30.0 No la Actualices!!! Para los que son Nuevos y empiezan a Esplorar esta app, hace un tiempo, no muy lejano era una app excelente fácil de usar, Te daba la opción de crear un estimado facil y sencillo podías agregar; -Fotos gratis del proyecto al cual estabas estimando o cobrando. -Breve Contrato Gratis. - Notificaciones del Cliente cuando abría el estimado o invoice “Gratis” ¿QUE SIGUE ? Déjame adivinar -Remover La Opción de agregar Ítems -Remover Progressive invoice 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
  • So disappointed

    By Naultfamily
    So disappointed with the new upgrade. I’ve been using this app for over 5 years now and after this update I am unable to do what I was able to do for free a week ago. My boss will not pay for this service. So it is with a very heavy heart that I will have to figure something else out to send my quotes and invoices. Wish you would have “grandfathered” in the folks that have supported you through the years.
