    "I feel if you have a small business this app seems like it's perfect. I know that id want to be super organized when it comes to my finances. But the one flaw I see here is customer service... it appears to be sketchy and I wouldn't want to give my money to a company that can't give me support. So if you can ignore the support side, I guess this is a okay software. "
