How iOS 8 and OS X 10.10 need to fix iCloud Keychain

iCloud Keychain lets you generate, store, and manage strong, unique passwords between your iPhone, iPad, and/or Mac. In theory, that’s an amazing win for both convenience and security. Unfortunately, it’s only in theory. Sadly there are two big problems with iCloud Keychain, one conceptual, one architectural, that make it so that I — and anyone concerned with security — can’t use it. Luckily, it’s something that can and hopefully will be fixed with iOS 8 and OS X 10.10.

Best invoicing apps for iPhone: Freshbooks, Zoho, Invoice2Go, and more!

The best invoicing apps for iPhone to help you bill clients on time and easier than ever!

Looking for the best iPhone apps for managing your invoices? Whether you’re a contractor or freelancer, one of the most important aspects of running a successful business is invoicing clients on time. Unfortunately, it’s something that sometimes is easier said than done. Traditional invoice software can be cumbersome and difficult to us. Luckily the App Store is full of awesome apps that make the process a lot less painful. But which invoicing apps are the very best?

Freshbooks

Freshbooks is a complete cloud accounting solution for billing and expenses. Not only can you cut invoices right from your iPhone, you can get paid online as well via PayPal integration. If you have expenses you need to categorize and track, Freshbooks lets you take photos of all your receipts and track them. If you need to organize clients and view how much time you spent on projects, you can use Freshbooks for that too. If you have less than three clients, Freshbooks is completely free.

If you’re self employed and need an accounting solution that isn’t too terribly complicated, Freshbooks is one of the best available.

Zoho Invoice and Time Tracker

Zoho is an invoicing and time tracking service that has a no fuss setup. Just enter a little bit of information about your business, tax rate, and client rates. Pick and invoice template and start invoicing. You can also use Zoho to track expenses and time for multiple projects at a time. One unique thing about Zoho is that it also allows you to take credit card payments, a huge plus for those that want an all-in-one solution.

If you don’t want to go through a lengthy setup process or want to process credit cards, check out Zoho.

Invoice ASAP

Invoice ASAP isn’t the prettiest invoicing app for iPhone but what it lacks in pretty it makes up for in functionality. Invoices are easy to create and you can sync your data between QuickBooks and Xero to eliminate the need to do the work in both places. You can also capture signatures right within Invoice ASAP as well as add photos and voice notes to invoices.

If you have a need to add media to invoices such as photos of voice notes, Invoice ASAP is worth a look.

Invoice2go

Invoice2go is a complete invoicing solution that ties in with many other apps such as Calendar2go, Maps2go, Receipts2go, and more. Like Zoho, setup is easy and there are lots of templates to choose from. You can add custom rates and taxes as well. One thing Invoice2go does that some invoice apps don’t is parts and labor. If you need to separate them out for tax purposes, this is something Invoice2go does well. It’s worth noting that Invoice2go has two versions, the regular version and the Plus version. If you don’t need cloud sync and plan on being the only person using Invoice2go, go with the regular paid version. If you need cloud sync and access for multiple users, the free app with subscription service is the best option.

For a complete solution with an entire ecosystem of apps available to support it, you can’t go wrong with Invoice2go.

Quickbooks Online

Quickbooks Online is the companion app for the Quickbooks Online accounting service. You can invoice clients and customers, track expenses, and view most of the data contained in your Quickbooks account. While it isn’t as full featured as the actual web version of QuickBooks Online, it still serves as an easy and intuitive way to invoice clients and customers right on the spot.

If you use QuickBooks Online to manage your business, the QuickBooks online app for iPhone is a must have.
