Seems simple enough for people who don't already have their small business stuff set up. But the major draw back on this application is...WAY TOO EXPENSIVE. $129? Maybe I'll pay $29 for it. For $129? This is not for me.

Totally not worth that much of $

I've been evaluating nearly every invoicing/accounting package that would be suitable for a small consulting business, and SoftBooks is better than most. It certainly contains most of the *functionality* that I need.

However, there are two things that are essentials for me that make SoftBooks not right for me:

- I need to be able to completely customize an invoice for my company look & feel. As a former graphic designer, it drives me nuts to have someone else's idea of what *my* invoice should look like. Even an "export" function would be acceptable, so I can read the invoice data into another app to do the actual invoice.

- Customer/vendor data must integrate with Address Book. I refuse to retype all the contact info that I use everyday with Mail and other Address Book-aware apps. Address Book is a standard framework under OS X; there's no reason you can't pull records from there.

I also feel that SoftBooks needs some help in the UI department. It's clean, but nearly *too* clean -- it needs some tightening up of buttons & fields, and could use some separators in the forms to delineate, for example, the main invoice info from each invoice item info.

I'll watch this app to see if it improves over time.

Simple, uncluttered and very easy to use unlike other invoicing apps. Very stable for 1.0 release. Full of features with more on the way, I'm sure. SoftBooks is from the same company that brought us MacInvoice. I've used MacInvoice for years and really liked it. The developers have been promising an OSX version for months and it has been worth the wait. With a couple revisions I'll be Classic free.
