    "Do Your Taxes From Your Phone"

    THE VERDICT

    The TurboTax app is great if you're only filing a simple return. If your taxes are more complicated than that, using the app maybe more of a headache than it's worth. To start the process, simply take a picture of your W-2, then swipe the screen to answer tax related questions. While the app says it's free to file, it's only free if you have a simple tax return. If you have a 1099 of any sort or are looking for extra deductions, it's going to cost you. And it's going to be complicated to file through the app. Not saying it can't be done, but it would be easier, and quicker, to sit down in front of the computer to do it. Not only is it more difficult to add information, but if you make a mistake, it's harder to go back and fix it. Overall, great for simple returns, not so good for those of us who have more than one W-2 or work for ourselves.

    THE PROS

    This app gives you an easy way to file your taxes for free (if they're simple). It's easy to use and gives you step by step instructions.

    THE CONS

    If you're taxes go over anything but the original tax form, it's going to cost you and it's going to get complicated doing it through the app. It's easy to just file from a computer or call an accountant!

    I love TurboTax but this app has its issues. It takes to ping for each page to load and it's a little glitchy. I got through my w2 and started my deductions when the app wouldn't load anything. When I tried using the menu bar, nothing came up but the settings. It doesn't matter how many times I open/close the app, nothing helped. I closed the app and waited a few hours, later that night I was able to complete my taxes sans glitches or any issues. I would still recommend Turbo Tax and plan on using next year.
