Missing a big piece of simplicity
by StacyPaulsen on 2019/07/12 01:35
Like others have mentioned, this app is great and would get 5 stars, except the receipts you photo with the app can’t be merged with a downloaded transaction. Also, you can’t attach a photo or doc to a downloaded transaction online. I would also like to see in the app the ability to categorize transaction instead of having to do it online.
Better before it was sold!
by Frazzled but hopeful on 2019/06/27 19:59
I knew it wasn’t going to be good that you were sold...we liked this app and desktop platform until recently when the auto receipt recognition seems to have stopped working, it won’t fully download to my phone anymore and there are receipts stuck in limbo that won’t approve or save changes. Coincidence that it started right after the announcement of the sale? I think not
Uploading

Only 19 receipts?
Poor photo quality + No multi page receipts
by Rafael Testai on 2019/06/18 23:55
Please add/improve the features in the title.
Appreciate it!
by sww.ww on 2019/06/06 12:27
Awesome and free. Actually does work. Thank you!!
Unresponsive within 2 minutes of use
by DeeCrowley on 2019/06/01 13:36
Please email me if you need help. This should be a very simple application. There are so many bugs it is useless at the moment.
Great tool, how about a full accounting app?
by spadict on 2019/05/31 02:38
Very handy for snapping receipts on the go. I’d love to be able to see, edit and mark transactions as reviewed from one of your apps. If you need an iOS consultant in Toronto who dogfoods your products HMU ;)
Not working anymore
by detlefakis on 2019/05/25 08:28
I am taking photos of receipts and the photos just disappear. The app lags a lot and nothing seems to work. I have receipts in review that I need to delete and I can’t even do that
Nice idea but...
by musicforjay on 2019/05/24 17:34
Merging the receipt pic with the bank transaction does not work. When that works, it will be a beautiful thing. I guess you get what you pay for sometimes. I hear they are working on this fix for 2019.
It’s alright
by gaborkarakas on 2019/05/17 19:44
When it doesn’t crash, when it doesn’t say offline all the time, when it actually can pull up the camera and take a picture, it works....
Love this app!!!! And it’s free!!!!
by No sé que poner!!!!!! on 2019/05/15 20:59
I just wish I started using it earlier. So much you can do. I wish there were also some tutorial videos in the help center to learn how to make the best out of so many features. Great app! Thanks!!!
Great app!!
by Jofagaga on 2019/05/15 17:14
Great App I love it, you guys did a great job developing!!
Really need an iPad app!
by tylerbro121 on 2019/05/15 16:17
Love the app and the online portal! I can easily manage my business and expenses. I would really like to see and iPad app or for the developer to make this app work with iPads. All of my business is done on my tablet.
Slow to launch
by Philipsd6 on 2019/05/10 20:03
I have the app set to open in receipt capture mode because I want to get a receipt, capture it, and get rid of it. But it takes so long to launch that I end up stuffing the receipt in my pocket to do “later” and if I do get around to it, the receipt is crumpled and more difficult to OCR.
Could not find option to raise invoices
by tomyrrs on 2019/05/10 11:31
Couldn’t not find option to raise invoice
Amazing
by cat92486 on 2019/04/19 02:16
I love love love this app! Now I can organize my receipts and not have them shoved in bags and boxes, scattered in multiple closets. And the scanner recognizes where you bought the item(s), price, and date ! Makes it easy for you to upload the receipt! I def recommend this app!
very easy to use!
by NeoMarco76 on 2019/04/16 21:10
But I would still recommend to improve the report function online! I thought it had those function in earlier releases. But general speaking, a very user friendly and smart app!
Sluggish and frustrating
by justondean on 2019/04/16 01:10
You’re app is very slow. The scan and recognition could be better, but it’s decent. What I can’t stand is waiting forever to do anything when I open the app. There’s at least a 5 second delay where the whole app is just frozen. I thought it was because I had the camera on when open but I turned that off and it’s still sluggish on opening. And it doesn’t matter if it’s a fresh open or returning after leaving. I also am frustrated that I can’t split transactions on reviewing a purchase/receipt. This makes it almost useless as most of my purchases tend to be Wal-Mart/dollar General type places where I purchase goods from multiple categories. So I either have to wait until I have time to login to change stuff or just choose not to categorize correctly.
Perfect for a growing business! Excellent expense categorization!
by parmoni on 2019/04/15 21:40
I wish it gave me the ability template my chart of accounts across all my sub-businesses, but aside from that, it's been perfect. Recommendation for the roadmap? Integrate with HRBlock!
Best Scanning App for Receipts
by goobnuts on 2019/04/11 05:32
Love it. Only feedback would be to add auto crop, deskew, and filter to change to easy-to-read black & white. Also would help to have auto payment acct & catagories for repeat vendor receipts.
Hard to organize
by vinzvanz on 2019/04/05 13:30
I like the wave interface: but it allows few options to customize or organize. For instance: I want to add payment accounts and I want to add my personal receipts such as grocery shopping. I’m trying to keep track of all my spending - and then separate business from personal spending at the point of organizing my receipts. This app does not do it: if I can’t find the controls to do it.
No way to sort receipts
by Jeremy and John on 2019/04/04 20:53
Unfortunately this app fell short when I found a few receipts that I wasn’t sure if I had already entered in or not. There is no way to sort your receipts by date, name, dollar amount etc. You literally have to scroll through every single receipt to see if it was added or not. Customer service wasn’t great and just said that they are always looking to improve and apologized for this feature not being available at the moment. Will be looking into other options for sure!
Not thrilled
by One of many!! on 2019/04/03 02:29
I just entered about 20 receipts and they took the same merchant of Amazon when they were all different. The first one I processed was Amazon. Just weird and frustrating. Thought this would help with processing these!
Great and Easy to Use!
by RudyMacias on 2019/04/01 14:20
I love Wave for my business and their receipts app makes tracking receipts really easy. Thanks!
Not working properly
by dyvoisa on 2019/03/26 08:28
App use to be perfect now you can no longer get the app to capture the picture. Which is the whole point of the app
Seemed great at first
by JilMore on 2019/03/24 17:09
It seemed great at first and then it stopped capturing any photos of receipts. I tried to enter info on a receipt and manually enter data on a particular 7 times and it failed each time. Great concept, but you can’t expect users to invest rime and effort to have the app fail.
Some tips
by carthd on 2019/03/20 04:20
The limitation of this app is twofold. First it only lets use take pictures. I have so many electronic receipts and wish there was a screenshot feature. Secondly, this creates an entirely new line in Wave, which you later have to Merge with the bank transaction. This can be time consuming to manually merge (wish it were smarter) and also make you lose data as you end up categorizing two times essentially. I actually quit using this after awhile because I find it too tedious, and now I just have a huge scanned folder of receipts for backup if needed and only use the Wave Transactions.
Do not use - receipts do not go into a report
by Kowboy75 on 2019/03/18 19:03
I have over 900 receipts from 2018 on wave. I went to try to get a report of all my receipt to file taxes and none of my receipts that I uploaded moved over to the report. All the receipts with vendor, date, amount, image of receipt etc are on their system but it did not carry over to report. Been with support for hours and they said I need to resubmit even though they see every receipt and information under purchase>receipts and that they can not move that information to report. Clearly they do not have the software engineers to fix this issue which would be solved by just populating the information they ALREADY HAVE to report. They can’t even simply do that. Total waste of hours to redo my 950 receipts. They don’t own up to the issue and totally of no help.
Nifty. Handy.
by __kb__ on 2019/03/18 13:02
All apps should be this way - nifty, handy, purposeful. Just works.
Awesome
by Guntars V on 2019/03/17 04:23
Very useful, period!!
Great but requires flexibility
by Clean Indeed on 2019/03/15 20:54
Great app but the expense categories are limited and there is no option to rename or add new categories. I also noticed with my iPhone that I have to close the app and re launch for updates to reflect.
Automatic Review Not Optimized
by Style Doctor Stewy on 2019/03/15 00:23
Part of the simplicity of the program is to be able to read a simple receipt and file accordingly, which it did a year ago...a few times. Now it takes manual entry of place, date, amount etc after it swirls and swirls in “processing” I get this feature is not optimized in my area?!?! Nothing is really improving here (basic basic things). 🤦🏻‍♀️ like clicking on the date and it sticking! Instead you press and press, move the date around, go to another category and wish for the best THIS is the most irritating, believe it or not because it’s so BASIC
Very Helpful
by Sucky weather app 12345 on 2019/03/14 18:43
Just started using it and office lost hard copies but able to provide a copy.
Lifesaver
by Lots of Room for improvement on 2019/03/06 00:25
I really love the convenience of this app... that it syncs to my Invoice app, that I’m able to print reports from my desktop and also easily add receipts from my phone. I was so stressed and had no idea how I would be able to keep up with everything. The only thing it’s missing is an inventory app. PLEASE let that be your next!
Great but would like it to be easier
by Jdmaverik on 2019/03/05 22:29
Great app makes it super simple to upload receipt. Just wish I could auto connect it to a purchase in wave. I would also like if they could allow the main page to switch when you send it to the processing area. At first I had no clue where my receipt went
Hi
by mitchem863 on 2019/03/03 16:50
So far it’s been pretty good. Problems I’ve experienced 1- loading up assets 2- not able to edit receipts if I find an error after done. 3- some problems loading receipts, bad dates, not being able to edit on my computer without having to save to the close file before I’m ready because I would rather review first before accepting to close in which case if wrong I have to redo.
Makes expensing purchase easy
by Tenchi042 on 2019/03/02 18:54
This is an easy-to-use companion to the waves website. It makes recording purchases simple. I wish there was an all-in-one app for waves thought.
Sad
by Cinti C on 2019/03/01 18:48
Wouldn’t sync with bank so not useful
Love the app but could improve
by Ahnew on 2019/02/28 18:17
I love how easy it is to upload receipts. I just wish there was a mileage tracker on it too so I don’t have to use a separate app for it.
Needs fine tuning
by waterseekr on 2019/02/20 19:35
Wave receipts app is ok, but you cannot add a category to specify transaction type & when you do go to do it under Accounting on main app, it does not cross over or sync to receipts app. Very basic starter app
New user switched over from Intuit.
by Va scrapper on 2019/02/20 12:11
So far its no better than any other accounting software I’ve used. Actually the problem with scanning receipts makes this entire system useless if you want to track expenses(as any business needs to do)! I’ve been hesitant about using Wave and now that I’ve started using it I’m finding that it’s worth paying a monthly fee for other web based accounting that actually works. Tracking and reconciling receipts is one of the worst parts of accounting and it hasn’t worked properly in Wave right from the start and it’s still the same. I’ve been reading bad reviews about this issue for over a year and it’s still the same. Clearly it’s a bug that’s not being tended to. Therefore I will most likely be switching from Wave to something else. Wish it wasn’t the case!
Self employed

Wave App
by DerinLennoxlauren3 on 2019/02/17 22:07
Great App Just Wish It Was Where It Would Count Up The Money Spent Other Then That Great App
Not clear at all how to use
by Tildenst on 2019/02/16 18:50
It’s not clear at all how to use the app. The help menu is inadequate. I want step by step instructions. Disappointed.
Easier for me to do the right thing
by Totally Busy on 2019/02/12 12:36
I’m not reviewing any high functions. Just the ability to scan a business receipt and have it go into my accounting program means no lost receipts for me. Hurray!
How’s this supposed to help?
by Jonkwilliams on 2019/02/11 23:52
I took photos of about six receipts and the app didn’t/couldn’t fill in any info about any of them - merchant, date, amount, etc. - automatically. So when I tried to enter said info manually I found I couldn’t see the full photograph of the receipt anymore, just the top of the frame which usually didn’t include anything but the very top of the receipt, if that much. I can’t figure out, now, how to view the whole receipt. And I also read here, in another review, that Receipts doesn’t match these photographed receipts to transactions in my Wave account. Rather it adds each of them as a new transaction, creating duplicates. Sounds like some rethinking on Wave’s part is in order. And/or clearer instructions?
A joke of a receipt management app on iOS
by Ro.Jo on 2019/02/10 02:07
After scanning a receipt using the iOS app, the "processing" wasn't complete after 5 minutes! When there are so many apps that read a receipt in near real time using character recognition and AI capabilities, delineate line items, categorize and store, this app seems a bit of a joke for receipts and expense management. The app deserves harsh critique particularly because of its misleading claims of performing "magic" to meet the user need.
Solid effort, almost there. Still beta. You should totally use this app.
by markwilliambrown on 2019/02/08 07:28
Solid effort, almost there. Still beta. The UI is great, photoing receipts works reasonably well. Downsides: receipts do not necessarily upload immediately. Many times, I have found the receipts are not at my desktop after returning from home depot, an 8 minute drive away. It seems if the developers assigned the CV stuff to AWS recognition through a lambda function, the processing would be faster. I haven’t seen anything else to gripe about. From a fellow developer, what you have done here is great: keep going.
Good but with some tweaks could be great
by Keeb88 on 2019/02/06 11:44
Just started using the receipt scanner for our businesses. So far it’s good but what it really needs is a way to split your transaction without having to toggle between the site and the app. Why can’t we split the transaction immediately after we scan it ? Risky having to code it and then go back and correctly split it. Also, I was considering moving my invoicing to Wave but it seems to only offer online billing. We have a mix of customers- some like emails some still want a paper bill in hand.
Not 100% For Personal Use
by Mhutchi on 2019/02/03 19:44
After reading several reviews, I downloaded this app to try. First off, you have to log into the website to set up an account. The issue with this, was that I wanted to use this for personal receipt tracking, not business related. In order to create an account, you must enter a business name. I don’t have a business. I used my name for that part. You can hide the business part of this program on the website, however, it wouldn’t let me. I tried to do it three times. Also, when I entered a receipt on the app, it said it was done, but then the receipt didn’t show up. Not impressed with this app. I finally just deleted the entire account.
Small business owner
by Dimon Pankin on 2019/01/29 13:47
So far desktop version for payroll is doing what it supposed to be doing. It doesn’t have all the expense categories. No postage and no toll roads for example. It would be nice to create expense category by myself
Notes section is unusable and accounts are all off
by erich1982 on 2019/01/28 21:18
I want to love this app but there are some major issues currently. For one, the accounts section is showing accounts that have been deleted from wave and the chart of account area (which makes it difficult to properly log receipts). And two, The notes section is completely unusable because it won’t allow me to type or dictate. And the notes section is extremely important when it comes to logging why receipts are valid for the business. Must be fixed.
So far I like it.
by s.kingdavid1 on 2019/01/26 03:53
So far so good, it I like it I will come back and update my review. Great alternative compared to quick book
Great little app to keep track of receipts and connect right into my bookkeeping app
by Suribecca on 2019/01/23 22:33
I love the convenience of this app, esp that I can connect it directly to my wave app accounting. And it keeps getting better!
It works, but never finishes processing
by Alan Osman on 2019/01/22 16:39
The app works well with the website, but the version i downloaded for my iphonex does not seem to ever finish processing. I have to restart the app to see the receipts marked as done which is annoying.
Are use this for running a landscaping business
by Halo punk on 2019/01/20 01:53
Very easy to use I love being able to take pictures of my business receipts. Very easy just to take a picture of your business receipts and not have to deal with a lot of paperwork. I love that you can still have your customers pay by check visa or the bank.
Camera access problem
by Priestmonk Dimitrian on 2019/01/08 07:17
In last version 3.7.4 Camera access does not work on my iPhone 8
Does not work
by mjspirals on 2019/01/07 18:01
I just downloaded the app and it will not work. I get to the page asking for access to my camera, and no matter how many times I tap “allow access” nothing happens. I’ve restarted the phone and the app several times. So far it’s a waste of time.
Too much work
by Nettedic4 on 2019/01/06 17:49
I recently downloaded this app to keep track on personal expenses and incomes, and I have been experiencing several issues: 1. Camera takes blurry photos of the receipts. I see myself having to open the iPhone camera and then uploading the photo just so I can read it. 2. There’s no category for payroll or any sort of payment/credit received in the personal accounting. That means that you can only scan your expenses. 3. Data doesn’t automatically fill out so I see myself having to manually input all data. Maybe is because I’m using it outside of the U.S., I’m not sure. 4. After the 7th or 8th receipt I uploaded the app is taking too much to process the receipt photo. I’ve had to input the same data twice.
Large number of receipts in processing state for over a week
by farhanshekhani on 2019/01/03 08:57
Unable to release invoices from processing to ready state. Transcribing seems to work for half the invoices but rest are stuck despite high quality images of receipts
Will not pull receipt data automatically
by PriscillaPerez on 2018/12/18 18:16
I got this to keep track of receipts. It has been “processing” my first two receipts for over an hour. Doesn’t work. I need to manually enter data.
I love this app
by Mr. Fuzz on 2018/12/10 01:23
I love how the OCR brings in merchant and amount from the receipt. It would great if it could guess at the category. Barring that, I wish you could select a bunch of similar receipts and bulk tag them with the correct categories and payment accounts— either using the app or while signed in online. Great job with this. I am very happy with it.
Handy but
by torkrench on 2018/12/04 15:09
I like Wave overall, and this is a nice lil add on, but i’d like to see a paid & check # added so it doesn’t make a separate transaction- as bank sync creates another for the check, that that must then be merged in wave.
My first month
by TriFan on 2018/12/02 20:04
I am a small business/sólo owner so Wave accounting has been extremely beneficial. However I was looking for a seamless way to submit my receipts along with my invoice. I thought this app would sync my receipts with my invoice through wave. But they do not sync. It would be optimal if I could select receipts from the system and attached them to my invoice in one seamless process rather than export my invoice in .pdf and submit the invoice as an attachment along with receipts to an email. The wave desktop and mobile versions have fit my needs perfectly at least for my first month.
Can’t login
by Mr Roboto11 on 2018/11/28 07:04
Seems like a great app. However, it just hangs on the login screen after login with Google.
Customer service
by jlm62410 on 2018/11/15 18:44
The app is actually really efficient. I'm having trouble logging in online and can't get help AT ALL. THERES NO NUMBER. NO ONE REPLIES TO THE INQUIRY. I can't get to my company credit card receipts and can't reconcile with out them and now the CFO wants to charge employees who are missing receipts. I NEED HELP. So mad at myself for selling the bosses on the idea of Wave.
Terrible customer service
by kcmovie on 2018/11/09 13:33
I signed up for an account but somehow it told me incorrect log in info. I asked to reset my password several times but no emails received (inbox and junk mailbox). Contacted customer service and no response! Don’t waste your time. There is really no customer support.
Not able to customize for your individual business
by nktiese on 2018/10/31 19:51
I want to customize the categories for my receipts and I cannot. Very disappointed. None of their categories relate to my business.
Receipts will not process.
by Sue-z-q777 on 2018/10/08 03:07
Uninstall/reinstall did not help. Have been waiting days for receipts to process but the sync errors out. I have only been able to get the app to work on 2 receipts and that was back in July.
Easy to use
by Dave D Powell on 2018/10/06 12:47
I like how easy it is to upload receipts from this app to the on-line Wave. Snap a photo. It scans for info and gives you a notice when it is ready for you to review. I then categorize the expense and hit submit. I even get notified when my partner loads receipts and I can categorize his for him.
Best Accounting Software
by NBLMAL on 2018/10/04 11:30
Used QuickBooks for years but after coming across Wave this is by far much better in comparison. This is efficient and easy to use for my small business.
Nice 👍
by Axit Patel on 2018/10/02 17:42
Nice and to much Useful..I like it
Great
by Ghassan Dawood on 2018/10/01 02:59
I have been using this app for about 5 months. It is very practical and I can see what i am spending each month.
I can’t believe this is free?!
by jbo1116 on 2018/09/29 01:33
So good - way better than quickbooks!
😕
by fghytfcbjjyrdscvvggh on 2018/09/28 22:03
No start-up instructions. No marketing/informational video to explain process. Very confusing platform. Signed up for one thing then told I needed another app to sign up for another...??
Need photo library
by Lallisidhu on 2018/09/26 03:39
Other than photo taking, some received are screenshots and stores in phone photo library. The app does not provide option to access photos
Used to be great now very buggy
by Bb123123bb on 2018/09/17 11:42
I love the online platform and have been using the receipts app for years. The application is now incredibly buggy and freezes between screens. I will have to move to another receipt capturing app, but I will say the online invoice and expense dashboard is great. Too bad the app doesn’t work anymore.
Perfect for freelancers and consultants
by Nick Name0 on 2018/09/09 00:22
If you need to record your receipts for reimbursement or accounting this app is perfect. It works with waveapp that’s a free accounting software with very affordable optional paid services.

This app is awesome! I’m looking forward to delving into the new features and embracing upgrades. Thanking you for making my accounting easy!
Would Prefer a Full App
by HalleaseBeast on 2018/09/02 14:06
This is great for on the go but I would prefer to have the full functionality of the browser app on my phone.
Worst app on AppStore, doesn’t scan receipts use quick books
by nerry27 on 2018/07/22 18:02
Disclaimer: I have no relation to quick books and at this time am a wave user (not quick books) myself. However I’m pretty close to giving up on this. The app is terrible. It deserves maybe NEGATIVE five stars. It won’t ever scan your receipts and even 1 year later will be showing the receipt as scanning today. The app is a complete waste of time and will cost you 10000s if $ in lost deductions. Consider yourself wanted
Does not sync with website
by Curlychris24 on 2018/07/14 01:07
This app was great at first. Then the dates on the receipts just suddenly changed when I viewed them on my phone (they said the year 2020!) and the receipts stopped syncing from the computer to my phone. App needs some work!
IOS BUG
by wec77 on 2018/07/10 22:44
When I scan with android the merchant and cost is captured. When I scan with iPhone 7 iOS 11.4 the merchant and cost is not captured. Why? Using Apple iOS is more time consuming because I have to manually input the cost and merchant.
Going green with receipts
by DogAtHome on 2018/07/10 21:07
I absolutely love using this app! No more saving hard copies or copying fading receipts. Reducing carbon footprint helping the environment. Highly recommended for individuals or small businesses.

Four hours and counting “processing” receipts. This app isn’t worth the free price.
First use impression
by SharpellTech on 2018/06/27 18:36
I've been using Wave for about 1 month, and the online version has been wonderful to use. I thought this app would make receipt uploads easier; however, I noticed that when I uploaded the receipts via this app (and moved them into the approved category) they did not show up under the transactions category on accounting when I logged in online. Also, I noticed that the receipts would not process for a long time, so I had to manually process the receipts in order to approve them (input all the data into the fields that are supposed to automatically fill in). My final note is that when I was manually filling in the receipt data and clicked on the receipt picture to view it, I saw nothing but a blank screen (not due to slow internet). The receipt image would not load, which means I still needed the paper receipt in order to input the correct data. Not bad if you still have the receipt in your hand, but it's a pain if you don't have the receipt easily accessible.
Swipe
by shv12345 on 2018/06/26 15:34
I wish you could swipe either way to erase the receipt.
Excellent software for recording receipts
by Selectiveform on 2018/06/24 17:15
I really this app and it saves me a lot of work and worry about keeping my expenses for tax purpose. I will love it even better if the developers just add some type of option to show on a display where the expenses go. Something like a pie chart. Please add a pie chart or some form of display to visually show where the expensive are going and maybe display the total of expenses. Thank you for the great work and it’s very simple to use and not bloated with unnecessary add-on. I will definitely rate it five with the requested option.
Really good app, has one flaw IMO
by Snoskidrew on 2018/06/13 15:46
I have enjoyed using this app and the online software it pairs with. I do have one problem though. On the online software you can download transactions from your bank. Whenever you upload a receipt for one of these transactions, the app and software treat it like an additional transaction. There is no option to pair the receipt with one of the transactions that has been downloaded from the bank. To work around this you have to login online and delete the downloaded transaction from the bank, which kind of adds back the time that the receipt scanning saved. All in all I enjoy the app but if there was a way to pair the scanned receipt with an existing downloaded transaction it would be worthy of 5 stars.
A bit too basic
by RoxyPhillips on 2018/06/06 19:45
Hard to criticize a free app/service, but with a few minor tweaks, this could be so much better. How about a basic photo editor or even just cropping? And switching businesses is several menus deep. Does the job, but cumbersome and slow, not unlike Wave in general.
Best receipt app
by Reyxtrm on 2018/05/27 20:56
This app is excellent the OCR is nearly flawless makes organizing receipts a breeze
Creates duplicate transactions
by Evee910 on 2018/05/22 20:18
Creates duplicate transactions in the software creating twice the work. Unable to connect it to an existing transaction automatically logged through my bank account. Don’t waste your time. I think it’s free and made complicated so you hire their accountants to fix their hot mess for you.
Very cool
by Heron Geomancy Org on 2018/05/21 23:02
The Wave apps are excellent!! Continue to dig Wave a bunch. It's way lighter and easier to use than the other guys. But still plenty full-featured: it does everything I needed it to do.
Works for me
by Right repair on 2018/05/17 04:14
Does what I need, sometimes it gets stuck but I just close out completely and then reopen with no issues. Receipts stored and allocated to right account.

by NJM126 on 2018/03/29 01:36
I was looking for a good (free) app to log my receipts because I’m terrible at maintaining them. Wave keeps all my receipts nice and neat and categorized within the software. And the rest of he software, Wow. Loving it. Create and send invoices, inventory, payroll. Granted the payroll app side is not free but is beats paying another company to do it at four times the price. Overall it’s a great app.

Some tips
by carthd on 2019/03/20 04:20
The limitation of this app is twofold. First it only lets use take pictures. I have so many electronic receipts and wish there was a screenshot feature. Secondly, this creates an entirely new line in Wave, which you later have to Merge with the bank transaction. This can be time consuming to manually merge (wish it were smarter) and also make you lose data as you end up categorizing two times essentially. I actually quit using this after awhile because I find it too tedious, and now I just have a huge scanned folder of receipts for backup if needed and only use the Wave Transactions.
Sluggish and frustrating
by justondean on 2019/04/16 01:10
You’re app is very slow. The scan and recognition could be better, but it’s decent. What I can’t stand is waiting forever to do anything when I open the app. There’s at least a 5 second delay where the whole app is just frozen. I thought it was because I had the camera on when open but I turned that off and it’s still sluggish on opening. And it doesn’t matter if it’s a fresh open or returning after leaving. I also am frustrated that I can’t split transactions on reviewing a purchase/receipt. This makes it almost useless as most of my purchases tend to be Wal-Mart/dollar General type places where I purchase goods from multiple categories. So I either have to wait until I have time to login to change stuff or just choose not to categorize correctly.
New user switched over from Intuit.
by Va scrapper on 2019/02/20 12:11
So far its no better than any other accounting software I’ve used. Actually the problem with scanning receipts makes this entire system useless if you want to track expenses(as any business needs to do)! I’ve been hesitant about using Wave and now that I’ve started using it I’m finding that it’s worth paying a monthly fee for other web based accounting that actually works. Tracking and reconciling receipts is one of the worst parts of accounting and it hasn’t worked properly in Wave right from the start and it’s still the same. I’ve been reading bad reviews about this issue for over a year and it’s still the same. Clearly it’s a bug that’s not being tended to. Therefore I will most likely be switching from Wave to something else. Wish it wasn’t the case!
Do not use - receipts do not go into a report
by Kowboy75 on 2019/03/18 19:03
I have over 900 receipts from 2018 on wave. I went to try to get a report of all my receipt to file taxes and none of my receipts that I uploaded moved over to the report. All the receipts with vendor, date, amount, image of receipt etc are on their system but it did not carry over to report. Been with support for hours and they said I need to resubmit even though they see every receipt and information under purchase>receipts and that they can not move that information to report. Clearly they do not have the software engineers to fix this issue which would be solved by just populating the information they ALREADY HAVE to report. They can’t even simply do that. Total waste of hours to redo my 950 receipts. They don’t own up to the issue and totally of no help.
Solid effort, almost there. Still beta. You should totally use this app.
by markwilliambrown on 2019/02/08 07:28
Solid effort, almost there. Still beta. The UI is great, photoing receipts works reasonably well. Downsides: receipts do not necessarily upload immediately. Many times, I have found the receipts are not at my desktop after returning from home depot, an 8 minute drive away. It seems if the developers assigned the CV stuff to AWS recognition through a lambda function, the processing would be faster. I haven’t seen anything else to gripe about. From a fellow developer, what you have done here is great: keep going.

How’s this supposed to help?
by Jonkwilliams on 2019/02/11 23:52
I took photos of about six receipts and the app didn’t/couldn’t fill in any info about any of them - merchant, date, amount, etc. - automatically. So when I tried to enter said info manually I found I couldn’t see the full photograph of the receipt anymore, just the top of the frame which usually didn’t include anything but the very top of the receipt, if that much. I can’t figure out, now, how to view the whole receipt. And I also read here, in another review, that Receipts doesn’t match these photographed receipts to transactions in my Wave account. Rather it adds each of them as a new transaction, creating duplicates. Sounds like some rethinking on Wave’s part is in order. And/or clearer instructions?
Slow to launch
by Philipsd6 on 2019/05/10 20:03
I have the app set to open in receipt capture mode because I want to get a receipt, capture it, and get rid of it. But it takes so long to launch that I end up stuffing the receipt in my pocket to do “later” and if I do get around to it, the receipt is crumpled and more difficult to OCR.
Automatic Review Not Optimized
by Style Doctor Stewy on 2019/03/15 00:23
Part of the simplicity of the program is to be able to read a simple receipt and file accordingly, which it did a year ago...a few times. Now it takes manual entry of place, date, amount etc after it swirls and swirls in “processing” I get this feature is not optimized in my area?!?! Nothing is really improving here (basic basic things). 🤦🏻‍♀️ like clicking on the date and it sticking! Instead you press and press, move the date around, go to another category and wish for the best THIS is the most irritating, believe it or not because it’s so BASIC
Not 100% For Personal Use
by Mhutchi on 2019/02/03 19:44
After reading several reviews, I downloaded this app to try. First off, you have to log into the website to set up an account. The issue with this, was that I wanted to use this for personal receipt tracking, not business related. In order to create an account, you must enter a business name. I don’t have a business. I used my name for that part. You can hide the business part of this program on the website, however, it wouldn’t let me. I tried to do it three times. Also, when I entered a receipt on the app, it said it was done, but then the receipt didn’t show up. Not impressed with this app. I finally just deleted the entire account.
My first month
by TriFan on 2018/12/02 20:04
I am a small business/sólo owner so Wave accounting has been extremely beneficial. However I was looking for a seamless way to submit my receipts along with my invoice. I thought this app would sync my receipts with my invoice through wave. But they do not sync. It would be optimal if I could select receipts from the system and attached them to my invoice in one seamless process rather than export my invoice in .pdf and submit the invoice as an attachment along with receipts to an email. The wave desktop and mobile versions have fit my needs perfectly at least for my first month.
Finally...The Update!
by space-night on 2018/02/10 15:41
Update Feb 2018 Last bug is fixed and receipt images are back in place. Thanks for the fast update!!! Update Jan 2018 I can scan the invoice and the receipt gets processed BUT the receipt doesn’t show up as image anymore. So no preview of the receipt will be shown and I can’t have a look at the scanned document for some reason. Please wave apps, you need to get those big bugs out otherwise people will not use it anymore. Thanks! Update 2017 Finally, the app is up to date and works now perfectly with the newest iOS. I love WaveApps so this will be a nice add on to manage my business. Thanks Wave! Old review ---------- Please guys, it's March 2017 and still no update? When I want it to use on my 6s it crashes all the time and the app isn't even adjusted to the screen size. Please fix asap!
Stuck in processing
by NSAdocNYC on 2018/01/22 22:46
Like many of the other reviewers I have had a multiple of receipts stuck in processing. Customer service —which took over a week to respond to my initial complaint—told me to uninstall and reinstall. When I did I lost many receipts. The app then worked fine for 1 day. After which receipts have been stuck in processing. Another ticket filed and it took over a week for them to respond. And the response was ‘we know this happens’ so you can just take a picture with your computer camera and email it to us one receipt per email’. Are you out of your mind? I am switching over to one of the competitors.
Notes section is unusable and accounts are all off
by erich1982 on 2019/01/28 21:18
I want to love this app but there are some major issues currently. For one, the accounts section is showing accounts that have been deleted from wave and the chart of account area (which makes it difficult to properly log receipts). And two, The notes section is completely unusable because it won’t allow me to type or dictate. And the notes section is extremely important when it comes to logging why receipts are valid for the business. Must be fixed.
The Update looks nice, but very poor functionality
by JP Worldwide on 2017/11/17 19:44
I've used the pervious version, as well as the new one, and it just plain needs work. I love Wave and really need this app to stay on top of business expenses, but the app is slow, freezes, does not process as well as it used to and even sometimes loses the stuff I'm adding. When you save a receipt that has trouble processing, it can post to accounting without any warning. The problem is, it has trouble processing A LOT. I have to spend extra hours trying to clean it up. The typing keyboard feature when leaving notes on receipts routinely skips and jumps while typing, making it very difficult and tedious to leave simple notes. The new design is great. It looks fresh. I just wish it worked as good as it did prior to the major overhaul they did. I'll still be a customer of Wave, but this app really needs more work and QA.
Are use this for running a landscaping business
by Halo punk on 2019/01/20 01:53
Very easy to use I love being able to take pictures of my business receipts. Very easy just to take a picture of your business receipts and not have to deal with a lot of paperwork. I love that you can still have your customers pay by check visa or the bank.
I love this app
by Mr. Fuzz on 2018/12/10 01:23
I love how the OCR brings in merchant and amount from the receipt. It would great if it could guess at the category. Barring that, I wish you could select a bunch of similar receipts and bulk tag them with the correct categories and payment accounts— either using the app or while signed in online. Great job with this. I am very happy with it.
Lifesaver
by Lots of Room for improvement on 2019/03/06 00:25
I really love the convenience of this app... that it syncs to my Invoice app, that I’m able to print reports from my desktop and also easily add receipts from my phone. I was so stressed and had no idea how I would be able to keep up with everything. The only thing it’s missing is an inventory app. PLEASE let that be your next!
Too much work
by Nettedic4 on 2019/01/06 17:49
I recently downloaded this app to keep track on personal expenses and incomes, and I have been experiencing several issues: 1. Camera takes blurry photos of the receipts. I see myself having to open the iPhone camera and then uploading the photo just so I can read it. 2. There’s no category for payroll or any sort of payment/credit received in the personal accounting. That means that you can only scan your expenses. 3. Data doesn’t automatically fill out so I see myself having to manually input all data. Maybe is because I’m using it outside of the U.S., I’m not sure. 4. After the 7th or 8th receipt I uploaded the app is taking too much to process the receipt photo. I’ve had to input the same data twice.
No way to sort receipts
by Jeremy and John on 2019/04/04 20:53
Unfortunately this app fell short when I found a few receipts that I wasn’t sure if I had already entered in or not. There is no way to sort your receipts by date, name, dollar amount etc. You literally have to scroll through every single receipt to see if it was added or not. Customer service wasn’t great and just said that they are always looking to improve and apologized for this feature not being available at the moment. Will be looking into other options for sure!
Receipts Processing Neverending
by nicholasmahrt on 2018/01/05 00:39
Simply put, I chose this app because I use the Wave accounting software and love it. No it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles, but I don’t need it to. And because I have multiple companies, I can go back-and-forth with relative ease. The ability to go back-and-forth with the Receipts tracker app — assign different receipts to different companies — seemed like a slam dunk. Until my receipts became stuck in “processing” for well over a week. I became forced to delete all the receipts I had saved (thankfully I still had the originals since this was my first foray and wanted to make sure it worked properly) and re-enter them. I am on the FIRST receipt which I scanned 2 hours ago. Things do not look promising. I really want this app to work properly as other reviewers write that it used to. Unfortunately in its current condition it is useless.

Used to work great not anymore
by Szolnokred on 2017/11/13 00:12
Been using wave for several years but recently the receipts would take forever to upload and when they did a transaction would not appear even when I posted the receipt which means when I threw my receipt away there was no worry because it was conveniently attached to the transaction...not anymore the free apps are great when they work but why are they free...I think you get what you pay for...the concept is great but when I'm dealing with my money I think I am going to a paid app....
Hi
by mitchem863 on 2019/03/03 16:50
So far it’s been pretty good. Problems I’ve experienced 1- loading up assets 2- not able to edit receipts if I find an error after done. 3- some problems loading receipts, bad dates, not being able to edit on my computer without having to save to the close file before I’m ready because I would rather review first before accepting to close in which case if wrong I have to redo.
Easy to use
by Dave D Powell on 2018/10/06 12:47
I like how easy it is to upload receipts from this app to the on-line Wave. Snap a photo. It scans for info and gives you a notice when it is ready for you to review. I then categorize the expense and hit submit. I even get notified when my partner loads receipts and I can categorize his for him.
Missing a big piece of simplicity
by StacyPaulsen on 2019/07/12 01:35
Like others have mentioned, this app is great and would get 5 stars, except the receipts you photo with the app can’t be merged with a downloaded transaction. Also, you can’t attach a photo or doc to a downloaded transaction online. I would also like to see in the app the ability to categorize transaction instead of having to do it online.
Better before it was sold!
by Frazzled but hopeful on 2019/06/27 19:59
I knew it wasn’t going to be good that you were sold...we liked this app and desktop platform until recently when the auto receipt recognition seems to have stopped working, it won’t fully download to my phone anymore and there are receipts stuck in limbo that won’t approve or save changes. Coincidence that it started right after the announcement of the sale? I think not
Amazing
by cat92486 on 2019/04/19 02:16
I love love love this app! Now I can organize my receipts and not have them shoved in bags and boxes, scattered in multiple closets. And the scanner recognizes where you bought the item(s), price, and date ! Makes it easy for you to upload the receipt! I def recommend this app!
Great but requires flexibility
by Clean Indeed on 2019/03/15 20:54
Great app but the expense categories are limited and there is no option to rename or add new categories. I also noticed with my iPhone that I have to close the app and re launch for updates to reflect.
Absolutely a life saver
by hopel6 on 2018/03/13 22:48
I am fairly new and doing this myself and I am glad I discovered this app. It makes it easy to upload and then figure out what to send to my accountant. There are some options I wish can be edited but for free this is great. Thanks
Hard to organize
by vinzvanz on 2019/04/05 13:30
I like the wave interface: but it allows few options to customize or organize. For instance: I want to add payment accounts and I want to add my personal receipts such as grocery shopping. I’m trying to keep track of all my spending - and then separate business from personal spending at the point of organizing my receipts. This app does not do it: if I can’t find the controls to do it.
very easy to use!
by NeoMarco76 on 2019/04/16 21:10
But I would still recommend to improve the report function online! I thought it had those function in earlier releases. But general speaking, a very user friendly and smart app!
Need an app for regular transactions and paying others
by LVT1000 on 2018/02/06 04:01
Not only does this app crash constantly, but I cannot use it to keep track of payments to other freelancers...and there is currently no other Wave app to do this, meaning that I must wait to be on a computer to keep most of my records. Currently looking to find an alternative to the otherwise great services Wave offers due to this unfortunate issue.
Missing Major Feature
by Jeph T on 2018/02/28 01:28
This app is good and has definitely improved but the one major thing it is still lacking.... A way to take multiple pictures of the same receipt to be in one transaction. This is so basic!! It only allows one picture per transaction and there is no merge feature. Some receipts are long or do not fit into one screen. Once this update is accomplished it will be 5 stars, until then..
Double Time
by Deloveli on 2017/10/07 18:23
The app used to import info much faster, even if it was slightly inaccurate. Now, it takes days to process and there’s still no info imported from the scanned image. I just deleted 16 receipts that I took pictures of 2-3 days ago. None of them had any info in the fields. I’m retaking photos with and w/o the flash on and still end up typing in the info myself. It’s definitely taking double the time for what I’d hoped would be a seamless process.
A joke of a receipt management app on iOS
by Ro.Jo on 2019/02/10 02:07
After scanning a receipt using the iOS app, the "processing" wasn't complete after 5 minutes! When there are so many apps that read a receipt in near real time using character recognition and AI capabilities, delineate line items, categorize and store, this app seems a bit of a joke for receipts and expense management. The app deserves harsh critique particularly because of its misleading claims of performing "magic" to meet the user need.
Love this app!!!! And it’s free!!!!
by No sé que poner!!!!!! on 2019/05/15 20:59
I just wish I started using it earlier. So much you can do. I wish there were also some tutorial videos in the help center to learn how to make the best out of so many features. Great app! Thanks!!!
Easier for me to do the right thing
by Totally Busy on 2019/02/12 12:36
I’m not reviewing any high functions. Just the ability to scan a business receipt and have it go into my accounting program means no lost receipts for me. Hurray!
Makes expensing purchase easy
by Tenchi042 on 2019/03/02 18:54
This is an easy-to-use companion to the waves website. It makes recording purchases simple. I wish there was an all-in-one app for waves thought.
Best Accounting Software
by NBLMAL on 2018/10/04 11:30
Used QuickBooks for years but after coming across Wave this is by far much better in comparison. This is efficient and easy to use for my small business.
Finally, receipt FREEDOM!!
by DRod492 on 2017/12/27 17:02
The app does what is needed. I read people complaining and all but compared to the alternative, this rocks! Keep on developing and creating tools for us closet Accountants out here!! It's not perfect but again it's progress. Thank you Wave team!
Great little app to keep track of receipts and connect right into my bookkeeping app
by Suribecca on 2019/01/23 22:33
I love the convenience of this app, esp that I can connect it directly to my wave app accounting. And it keeps getting better!
Perfect for a growing business! Excellent expense categorization!
by parmoni on 2019/04/15 21:40
I wish it gave me the ability template my chart of accounts across all my sub-businesses, but aside from that, it's been perfect. Recommendation for the roadmap? Integrate with HRBlock!
Best Scanning App for Receipts
by goobnuts on 2019/04/11 05:32
Love it. Only feedback would be to add auto crop, deskew, and filter to change to easy-to-read black & white. Also would help to have auto payment acct & catagories for repeat vendor receipts.
Small business owner
by Dimon Pankin on 2019/01/29 13:47
So far desktop version for payroll is doing what it supposed to be doing. It doesn’t have all the expense categories. No postage and no toll roads for example. It would be nice to create expense category by myself
Really need an iPad app!
by tylerbro121 on 2019/05/15 16:17
Love the app and the online portal! I can easily manage my business and expenses. I would really like to see and iPad app or for the developer to make this app work with iPads. All of my business is done on my tablet.
No more brown envelopes!
by TrautPoint0 on 2018/02/20 21:54
