Invoice2go for iPad
For small business operators, consultants, and freelancers, the need to generate and send invoices in a timely and efficient manner in order to be paid is essential. Using the Invoice2Go software on a PC or Mac ($99.00 USD to $149.00 USD per year), in conjunction with the Invoice2Go for iPad app ($14.99 USD), you have the ability to create professional-looking, customized invoices that you can design from scratch or adapt from more than 300 invoice templates offered with the software and app.
A free Invoice2Go Lite for iPad version is available (see Figure 10.3). It includes 20 built-in invoice templates. This is a slightly scaled-down version of the paid app, Finding and generating the perfect invoice to bill a customer or client for your products, services, or time is possible using this app. For invoices sent electronically, you can also add an interactive PayPal button, so you can be paid with a click of the mouse by the recipient. As you’re generating the invoice, subtotals, sales tax, and totals are automatically calculated.

In addition to simply generating the invoices, this app generates sales and business reports in 16 different formats, enabling you to email invoices directly to clients or customers from your iPad and track incoming payments. You can print invoices and reports wirelessly from the iPad, or you can transfer all data and sync it with Invoice2Go on your computer. Data from Invoice2go can also be exported for use in Intuit’s QuickBooks accounting and bookkeeping software that’s running on your primary computer or network.
Invoice2Go can meet all of your customer and client invoicing needs, yet the software and app (either of which you can use as a standalone product) are extremely user friendly and require no accounting knowledge to fully utilize. For more information, go to www.Invoice2go.com.
