Billings Pro is the app version of the billing service of the same name by Marketcircle Inc. Designed with a very user-friendly interface, Billings Pro is an excellent way to improve efficiency in invoice distributions.
The Billings Pro app brings the identically named invoicing service to the convenience of one’s chosen iOS devices. The app is free to install, but this free option includes just one invoice per month—far too low a limit for the serious entrepreneur.
However, a 30-day free trial option can be accessed to allow for unlimited billing during the trial period, and users can then opt to choose any one of the invoice packages sold through Marketcircle.
These services start at just $5 per month. Features of the app include features of the Billings Pro service itself. Such features include (but are not limited to) time tracking, instant invoicing, and tracking of mileage/business expenses as well. If a user is billing clients based on a per-project basis or a per-item model (instead of an hours-worked model), these options are also built into the app.
Appearance and Layout:
No complaints can really be thrown at either the layout or the appearance of Billings Pro. Navigating through the app was simple and easy to do on my first try. A clean, well designed series of instructional slides aids in informing users of how to get the most out of the app.
All font choices make for ready readability, and the screen is never too cluttered at any one point in time. The preset invoice templates are also equally impressive and look much more official than templates offered by some other services, and the fact that several different templates are available was greatly appreciated also.
This app is free to install and users are automatically give an allotment of one invoice per month for free. Additionally, a 30-day free trial period is currently offered for first time users; no credit card information is required in order to take advantage of this offer.
Overall, I found Billings Pro to be an excellently designed app that could really do just what it promised to do: to improve invoice organization and efficiency.
Sending an invoice with it is incredibly simple and using the “time tracking” feature was also equally uncomplicated. Although the free options of Billings Pro are somewhat limited, the many features of this app and billing service seem to adequately justify the per-fee options as well. It ranks along side other top business software and, more specifically, invoicing software.
Billings Pro iPhone app requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
