    I would love this app more except I can't get my detailed job descriptions off my phone and onto my PC. I need this to produce invoices, without having to type it all out again.

But seriously, if a business is going to use this app, it needs the entered data to be secure and exportable, and it can't be disappearing or changing when it isn't supposed to. A business needs to be sure that a new version won't have bugs that destroy what was entered into the app. I

    Have tested a number of sync apps, this one comes on top, But would rather pay a reasonable one time fee to be able to get the premium features than the monthly subscription.
