    I’m searching through all of these and what I’m not finding is the ability to have multiple photos of long receipts – since many receipts are not readable when the entire thing is captured at once, are there any apps that are efficient for tracking AND have multiple image capture ability?

  • Joris Brabants

    Good post but a little outdated. There are other apps that really save
    you time on expense reporting, like http://www.xpenditure.com for example.

  • Still looking

    It disturbs me when so many review sites list an app as free but for it it to actually be fully functional and do its job you need to pay. Still looking for a good one that’s completely free or at least doesn’t charge you money per receipt after you upload the initial few ones for free. Waste of my time.

      Have you tried Foreceipt App, it saves your receipts directly into your Google Drive and syncs with multiple devices automatically. It gives 100 receipts for free each month, plus you could own one year free when writing a review on App store for their app.

    For the last 6 months I’ve been using iqBoxy. So far I love it, it is free and no hidden fees or any other in-app purchases…
