Accounting App – Zoho Books
Zoho app for accounting is one more essential toolkit for every owner of a small business. The app can help you to create beautiful and detailed invoices, track your comings and goings, and provide you with reports on how your business is doing at this or that moment. The app does not only give you sheer numbers, but it also makes up graphs and illustrations for a better understanding of the situation.
There are lots of other features, of course. Among them: bank feeds, time tracking, notifications, and more. The company that created this app was one of the pioneers in cloud accounting, so it kind of has the experience of how to do it right.
Zoho Books looks simpler than other apps but performs pretty much the same functions. Plus, you should not forget about beautiful invoices! If you want to look professional and let your clients know that your business is a serious one, then the app is certainly worth consideration. Just remember that the app is not 100% free – there are some monthly fees like in most tools of this kind.back to menu ↑
Invoice by Wave
This one is free. Wave app is made for those same purposes as other apps on this list. The thing it is particularly good at though is sending and receiving invoices. The app’s interface is just wonderful for these operations. When you just open the app, it offers you to go through a quick procedure of signing in and then the wonders begin! What you have to do first is to enter your business name and choose your country. The latter choice is important since you got to let everyone know with what currency you are dealing.
It is truly amazing that such a good app is totally free. Maybe its functionality is limited in comparison with other apps, but sometimes it is even more convenient to tackle different problems on different platforms. At least this way, you don’t forget anything. A couple of apps instead of one, but for free? I don’t see a huge problem here – just a storm in a teacup.

Kashoo Cloud Accounting app is just for iOS. By the way, the rest two apps that follow this one are also for iOS, so excuse me, dear Android users, you can leave or scroll down to read my beautiful final words.
Back to the point: the app is designed to perform all those same features discussed earlier: making and sending invoices, taking receipts pictures, viewing the history of your financial operations as well as reports on the state of your business. Kashoo also provides you with support in case anything goes wrong and gives you an opportunity to have a chat with your clientele.
For many, this app is quite old or at least it is not as good as it was considered before. However, if you are new to this kind of apps, you may find it useful. After all, we are not all the same – different things work for different people. If you find at least something appealing in this app, just give it a try!back to menu ↑

Fundbox – Small Business Loans
Fundbox is a bit different from most of the other apps on this list. This app can be connected to the accounting tools like QuickBooks, FreshBooks, Kashoo, Zoho, and others, but its main purpose is to help you draw funds for your small business. The app sends you instant notifications about available funds and your task is to accept or reject an offer in 3 minutes. The chosen funds are quite beneficial, but all of them are less than $100 000. After all, this is a tool designed only for small businesses.
So, if you need to tie up some money that you don’t have into the business, get this great tool to provide yourself with the best credit offers. With Fundbox, it is more likely to get a good deal!
That is it for QuickBooks apps. As we see, there are lots of useful apps that let you have a laid-back attitude about your finances. It doesn’t matter what kind of business you have or whether you have it at all – our modern world requires us to be savvy spenders as well as having a steady income. Choose apps wisely & worry less of your money!
