1. Swift Invoice
Swift Invoice checks all the boxes for an invoice app. The app uses the usual bottom menu for navigation. The '+' button lets you add new items.
You can add a company profile from the settings menu. It lets you integrate company name, logo, tax details, address and all the relevant details.
Making invoices is as straightforward as it can get. Press ‘+’ icon and type clients name. You can also pull in all the client's name and details from a separate menu.
Your company details will automatically appear in the invoice. Add a due date, client's name and you are good to go.
The app also lets you add VAT details to each item of invoice. After invoice generation, you can send it to your client via email.
The app is completely free to use. You can create an account to sync the data between devices. One can change the invoice theme from the settings menu, which is a nice touch.
As the name suggests, the app is focused on delivering a simple invoice-making user experience to consumers. The aim is to let anyone create an invoice in a few steps.
On the sign up, the app asks you to add a name, company name/logo, and other relevant details.
The developers provide four major tabs at the bottom. After adding clients, and items, head straight to projects and start making invoices.
As always, the app supports the majority of essential options for creating an invoice. You can add client name, new items with VAT/Discount option, add a photo, sign the invoice, add due date, notes, payment info and even preview it before hitting the send button.
You can also choose among a professional, matte finish, and simple theme from the invoice menu.
Invocie2go is more of an all-in-one app solution than a simple invoice generator. At first, you can add all the relevant company info from the settings tab.
Let's talk about UI a bit. This is the best user experience you can get on any invoice app. The design is eye-catching, animations are smooth, and the UX is top-notch.
Adding a new invoice lets you choose from several options like adding new client, add a new item, discount, deposit request, payment option and more.
You can also manage purchase orders, estimate expenses, and send out credit memo all from inside the app.
Time tracking facility lets you track the time to spend on a project or activity. You can add all this info to the final invoice. The app also lets you protect sensitive data via Face ID option.
One notable addition is theme support. Head to Settings > Customize Invoice, and from there, you can change every aspect of the invoice style and color. Believe me, the app offers more editing options than a normal photo editing app.
By now, you may have understood that Invoice2go isn't a free app. The software is a paid one with a subscription model. It costs around $20/year to unlock all premium functions.
As I mentioned above, if you are looking for an app with all the possible invoice options and several other features, then Invoice2go should be on your list. But it also comes with a price. Among free alternatives, you can choose from Swift invoice and invoice by Bookipi. Zoho invoice is for someone invested in Zoho's ecosystem.
