    "Accounting apps can sometimes have a steep learning curve and can be difficult to work with but the Wave app is more user-friendly. It caters to small businesses and their customer service is top-notch. Also, some of the features that are used the most are free, while others are priced on how much of the service is used which is awesome. Business dynamics are subject to shift per year so it's amazing to see a site that caters to that aspects."
