    "JobFLEX is an okay phone app for invoicing and quotingZ on the go. It really needs a desktop version though as many of us who have small businesses use both platforms for accounting. I will wait until that is an option to start using this app."

    "FreshBooks is accounting and billing software that will allow you to quickly write up your orders and other items you need to run your small business or for your accountant to keep things in order for you. The solution matches the website information on how it can be used and how it can make an accountant's job easier"

    "This app still needs a lot of work. It is not good as a portable accounts system, it is too basic. The desktop version is great though, and they are responding to poor reviews on the app by saying that they are working on it. So maybe in the future this app will get better. But for now it's a bit of a disappointment and is really lacking."

    "I'd need to be an accountant to keep up with the prices of this app. A bit pricey. It is new to the app store, which means it is probably still being developed and tweaked. I don't want to be a guinea pig while they work out the bugs. I need something refined and polished to work right away. This isn't the solution for me. "

    First Aid by American Red Cross

    This app will give you expert advice for everyday emergencies, so you are prepared for any unexpected problem. The app does also provide tips for preparing for extreme weather, like earthquakes, tornadoes and hurricanes, among many others.

    "I don't see a reason why the First Aid app would be a good one for accountants. It's generally a good one for everyone, but something like a good calculator app or the Excel or another spreadsheet app would be far more appropriate in the best app for accountants category."
