App Reviews

  • Great app, Do not use the credit card option

    By Hcmikl
    This is a great and convenient app for sending estimates and invoices. I have used Joist for 5-6 years. However, I don’t recommend using the credit card payment option. One of my clients, Gene Simmons of the band KISS, had a payment that was made to my company cancel for no reason. WePay then closed my WePay account due to “their speculation” that my line of work, concert audio, is at high risk for charge backs. This was very humiliating for me and my company. As you can imagine, this is a very high-profile client. I took a chance on the convenience of WePay and now regret it. Proceed with caution....
  • Best Buy it!

    By MikeLeeFont
    Joist is the best invoicing app hands down.
  • Not bad but...

    By misjustine
    I liked this app and used it for about 5 bids and then found something I feel is better. But my issue with this app is that I could not make my own price list to which I could choose from, Sq ft or LF and be done. I had to keep a separate price list because it was not offered on this app. This may have changed but I’m no longer using this app. But just my input.
  • Everything To My Company

    By PAremodeler
    Joist has been the best thing to happen to my company. It was so hard to send professional bids and keep my remodeling company organized, things were everywhere and took so much of my time to keep it all organized. Since I have had joist I am able to link my phone, tablet, and computer. I am so thankful that this App is free and it’s way better than any app that charges money( I’ve done a lot of free trials) if you have been searching for an app that does it all for your estimates an book keeping look no further! All updates and improvements that joist makes just keeps the program accurate and more contractor friendly. I only wish they also had a time tracking app for free that I could use for my employees!
  • Where the PDF?!

    By Shrub out gf dash gun
    This app was perfect but for some unknown reason the invoice PDF is no longer an attachment. I've been using this app for a long time and I love good updates, but why take features away? I'm very disappointed and will be happy to give 5 stars as soon as PDFs are brought back to email attachments
  • Growing App mirrors my growing buisness

    By MechanicalPolishBull13
    First I like to make it a point to make it known this is a great program and I’ve been using it for close to 2 years. The improvements keep getting better and more fluid. Love the text feature. We need the card swiper/reader for this. Most times I just email customer but it will eliminate the periodic issues of needing to run card on the spot. Also would like to see a option to offer a annual service agreement with this app. I run a hvac/Refrigeration company and need a option to offer service plan through this. Can you add a format that can be utilized as service plan agreement? Thanks Jeff D Czechowski
  • Amazing but one small change!

    By jblackey54
    I love this app. I’ve used it for a very short time and heard nothing but positive feedback from my customers. One thing that would be nice to add is a “one time” product or service to add to the Line Items section for estimates and invoices. Being in an industry where I use a lot of different material, sizes, brands, etc I like to incorporate specifics into my estimates and invoices. That being said, a one time product or service that doesn’t save in my line items library would be nice so I don’t have to constantly organize the library by deleting the overflow of minor differences in products and services that had been saved. Amazing app! Thank you so much!
  • Randomly closed my account

    By Ball apprentice
    The company Joist uses to process credit cards randomly closed my account for “reasons they could not disclose” after I had been using it for about a year with zero problems. It was one of the most random, ridiculous and frustrating things that has ever happened to me. They literally told me that they could not tell me why I could not use their service anymore. The dumbest thing I’ve ever heard...
  • Fantastic

    By carolinagirl843
    App is fantastic. The only improvement I’d love to see is adding the ability to select multiple photos to add to invoice instead of adding one at a time. Invoices look great love the notifications of when customer opens invoice.
  • Great App!!

    By lawn contractor
    We have been using this app for a couple of years now for both of our businesses. We have a wide array of services and a growing clientele and must work from multiple locations. With the Joist app we can do billing, estimates, etc. in real time which allows us to all work on our own job responsibilities yet keep updated as to what others are doing without having to contact one another continuously throughout the day... I can see the estimates being done out in the field as well as they can see what billing I have done... and I really find the email opened notification useful - so when I send an invoice to someone via email, i am alerted that the client has opened it and received my invoices!
