    The functionality is all there. I first had experience with joist on an iPad, so I have to say, it looks like the Android design team could do a little better. Still, a very useful app

    New small business owners or sub contractors. Will give 5 star if there was a inbuilt trade calculator so u can work out materials costs to overheads to labor costs and then see if u can do this quote

    Very Basic but a good starter. Good for a quick basic invoice. The lack of complexity is one of the best features. This is The app for the small jobs. I also like the responses of the developers. That shows intrest in customer approval.
