FreshBooks, the popular online accounting platform for small businesses, added a much-anticipated Android app to its suite of mobile apps today.
Just like the year-old FreshBooks for iOS, the free FreshBooks for Android lets small business owners keep track of expenses while on the go. Taking a client to dinner? You can capture that expense before you even leave the table by snapping a photo of your receipt. Similarly, you can create and email estimates to your clients while you're meeting with them. And a time tracker makes sure billable minutes are never lost just because you're away from the office. All your data automatically syncs to your online Freshbooks account.
FreshBooks is prized by companies that don't need or want a complicated accounting solution. Its easy-to-use interface allows you to be up and running in minutes. And you can build out and customize the functionality of FreshBooks with more than 60 add-ons that pull in data from third-party platforms such as Basecamp, Zendesk, Salesforce and PayPal.
If you don't already have a FreshBooks account, you can try it for free for 30 days. After that, plans are $19.95 through $39.95, depending on how many clients you need to manage or if you want to let staff access your account. At the top tier you can let one employee into the account, but you'll have to pay $10 extra for every additional user.
The new app works on smartphones and 7-inch Android tablets.
