Introducing the QuickFile iOS App

In August this year we launched our new mobile app for Android. We’ve been working on an iOS version in parallel and we are pleased to announce that the QuickFile iOS app is now available for preview.

As with the Android app the iOS version will be initially made available to a closed group of beta testers, if you’d like to try it out, you can request access by going to “Help” >> “Additional Services” within your QuickFile account, and selecting “QuickFile Beta Features”, using the code AP3189.

What can the App do?

We’re looking at the common use cases where mobile can deliver a better experience than desktop and prioritising the work accordingly to deliver these features. The obvious place to start was receipt capture and tagging. Version 1.0 of the iOS app will allow you to do the following.

  • Capture receipts from the camera or upload from your gallery
  • Tag your receipts with a mobile version of the Receipt Hub tagging interface
  • Access all your receipts from the Receipt Hub and view corresponding purchase invoice metadata.
  • Switch between multiple QuickFile accounts

Known Issues

This app is in active development and there are a couple of known issues we’re working on right now.

  1. For iPhone 10 and 11 there is a problem scaling the viewport to consume the longer screen on these devices. This means there’s a black band at the top and the bottom, the app should still be perfectly usable.

  2. When an incorrect email / password combination is supplied the error states that the app couldn’t contact the QuickFile Server. If you receive this error and you have a good signal please double check your email and password.

Coming Soon

The next stage of development will focus on read-only access to your quotations, invoices and bank transactions. This will allow you to quickly check various things while on the move.

Later we’ll look at the ability to create quotations and invoices from a paired down mobile interface. We’re not planning to have absolute feature parity with the web app, but we’ll aim to cover the broader scenarios that will allow you to be more productive on the move.

We appreciate any feedback on the iOS and Android apps. We will keep you updated on further developments.

Hi Quickfile Team, That are good news. Is the app only for iPhones or also for iPad?
Thank you.

It will work on iPads, although this version will not have adaptive scaling so it will not be fully utilising the larger display on the iPad. We will be looking into this as part of future development.

I like to try it will it work with iPhone 5-8 as can I get clients to use this too . My email is info@balanceyourbooksuk.com thanks

We’ve done a lot of testing on iPhone 7. It should work on iPhone 5, I just need to double check on that one.

Hi jhanks1170,
As Glenn mentioned before you can request this in your Additional Services section:

As with the Android app the iOS version will be initially made available to a closed group of beta testers, if you’d like to try it out, you can request access by going to “ Help ” >> “ Additional Services ” within your QuickFile account, and selecting “ QuickFile Beta Features ”, using the code AP3189 .

And it is may not the best idea to write your email address publicly, except for advertising and this is not really allowed, I think but Quickfile has to decide this.

does it work for affinity customers as just trying it out now it works ok for iphone 8.There isnt a delete button on this if you have incorrectly put on wrong amount.Just trying it out and i know my client will get items wrong.

@jhanks0311 it’s the end user account holder that must login. Currently there’s no support for logging in with Affinity credentials, we may however look into adding this in future.

Regarding deletion, you can go back in the app and change a keyed in amount. However after submission of the purchase detail form, there’s no option in the app to delete purchases that have been created.

Hello, I’ve just done a search on the play store for QuickFile but nothing came up, how do I get it for android

Hi @rawandmoreshack,

There is a separate post for the Android app here: The QuickFile Android App is here!

Hope this helps

Hi - how do I get a hold of the Android version? I have tried finding it in Google Play but with no success…

@Bharat there’s a separate beta group for the Android App. You can request access by going to Help >> Additional Services within your QuickFile account, and selecting “ QuickFile Beta Features ”, using the code AZ1B48.

What is the ios app called to download from the app store.

Hi @DIGITAE,

The app is still in the testing phase so not available directly through the App Store.

Hi,

On the power user subscription can you add your own invoice templates.
As i donot see much of choice with the regards invoice templates.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Regards,
Andre

@DIGITAE QuickFIle has around 10 preset templates and allows you to customise your invoices further using CSS. There’s more info on this here.

I can see all my tagged receipts in the app, but not untagged ones. Can I not use the app to tag receipts that I’ve forwarded to receipts@quickfile.co.uk?

Hi @cjdshaw,

No, the app will only show the tagged receipts. It allows you to tag new receipts that you upload via the app but not to be used to tag the receipts sent in by email or dropbox

Ok. Could that be added as a feature request?

It’s something we’re currently working on along with support for sales invoices and estimates. It should be ready late December or January.
