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