  • Shady Tactics

    By Loknaw
    I’ve been using this app in its free version for years to supplement my quick books, so that I could generate invoices in the field and all of a sudden I’m told that I have to upgrade to the pro version to show my company logo, the logo has always shown in the past. Removing an existing feature in a money grab to force people to upgrade to the pro version is a pretty lame way of doing business. Why not actually add additional features so people want to upgrade instead of taking away features that people already have.

    Well, I’m on the look for a new app. Joist is good, don’t get me wrong. I’ve been using them for 3 years. However, I have a HUGE issue with a company that pulls the features I was using for free and claims them as an updated paid for “pro” version. There’s several free apps out there. I’ll find another.
  • No longer usable

    After using this app for years they decide to take away some of the nicest features and basically hold them ransom for over $100 a year and call it the “pro version”.

  • Would be nice....

    By Richgutierrez.33
    Ok. I bit the bullet and paid to get Joist pro cause I love all the current features. But now, I'm starting to see what's pissing people off. The app works ok at best. BUT When can we get the newer version of the app? With all the stuff that's been "in the works". I've started my search for something truly tailored to the contractors needs. I've left plenty of feature request and I feel as if those have just been ignored. It's no surprise since joist has ZERO CUSTOMER SERVICE. ATTACHING A PDF WOULD BE NICE! A TRUE ACTIVITY LOG PER ESTIMATE LIKE A TIMELINE WOULD BR NICE! A BOUNCE BACK NOTIFICATION WOULD BE NICE! A PO GENERATOR WOULD BE NICE! A WORK ORDER GENERATOR WOULD BE NICE! GOOGLE CALENDAR INTEGRATION WOULD BE NICE! AN ESTIMATE APPEARANCE CUSTOMIZATION OPTION WOULD BE NICE! I'd really like to continue using this app but I find my businesses needed way more than what's offered at the moment.
  • Awesome

    Best program I’ve ever used . Not just good for contractors. I’d recommend it for any business owners. Thank you joist.
  • Monthly/Annual fee for previously FREE app features

    By Kimby_Web
    I have been using Joist since 2016 for my small business. Before selecting them I looked at many other options, all of which were free. I finally settled on Joist because I was more comfortable with the layout of their app. Several others invoice apps offered all of the same features, logo, photos, contract inclusion, client notifications, payment processing (fee for transaction of course) etc. Now years later I discover that with the roll out of their new “PRO” service, ALL of the features I listed above and possibly a few I am not noticing yet, have been removed from the free service and are now only provided for a $12 monthly fee. The free features offered now are no more than what you can create yourself using a simple Word document, but even on word you can include your logo. I am very dissatisfied with this update being a long time loyal user. I have also referred many small business owners to use Joist as well. I will be making a selection from the plethora of other invoice app options available and making the switch today. Joist messed up on this one, at least with their long time users.
  • Great app but!

    Great app, I’ve used it for years but wish they wouldn’t have taken away the ability to add pics for the people that already had the app before they started charging for the higher levels. But it’s still a great app!
  • Thieves. They will destroy your company if you get "too" successful.

    By nroseo15
    The joist app works well for estimates, but for payments they hold on to money for weeks on end (indefinitely) apparently from all your customers if all the payments in one week are over a certain amount. This is destroying our company. I can't buy materials for jobs so that we can continue them. I can't pay my employees(they have bills to pay too) or company bills, my customers who are on strict timelines are livid because we can't make progress. I just had a meeting with all my employees to let them know what's going on and Many are now looking for other jobs. Joist is single handedly bringing my company to a complete halt and destroying our reputation of prompt quick service that we have worked so hard to build. Tomorrow I will be out of gas money and will no longer be able to go to a jobsite to work myself. Thank you joist for destroying us.
