Great app. I've been using it for about 2 months during the beta cycle. The author is responsive to requests and bug reports. There are many other apps that do the same thing, but for what I do (web development), this app strikes the perfect balance between being simple enough to learn/use and being powerful enough to get the job done. My only missing feature is data export/.Mac syncing. Either of those features would satisfy my one request - being able to export my data easily so I can maintain it in two different places. But the author is looking in to this, and it might/might not be in a future release.

I've used the previous version of this app back when it was called "Billable". I'm actually still limping along with it on an old MacBook but its really time to switch to something more modern. However, I love how Billable functioned (not so much ProfitTrain). Does anyone know of an app that works on Mojave or newer that functions like Billable did?

/!\ DO NOT BUY THIS SOFTWARE! DEVELOPER IS NOT SUPPORTING THE APP ANYMORE. I am using Profit Train for about two years now (maybe more). The software is great and has a great potential. But many features needs to be improved, and the UI is not very practical on a daily basis. However, despite many request from his users the developer left us alone and did not do any update — he didn't even answer on his own forum, I had to speak directly to him via Twitter. This really frustrates me, I have so much hope into that software. I'll switch in a year or two.

I've been testing this app for a couple of weeks now, and really like it, but I do not want to purchase something that hasn't received any updates in over a year. I checked on the forums, and it looks like this software is being abandoned by the developer. At least it seems this way. It's very unfortunate

I have an independent consulting business and switched my billing to Billable four months ago. I really like it. Very simple in the best possible way. My invoices are easy to generate and track and it works flawlessly with Mail. Best of all, they have a much more professional look to them than previously. Really there are no negatives, but I'd like to see a pull-down menu for the Services field. The app isn't inexpensive, but is well worth the money I paid. I enjoy consulting, but hate the business side of doing business and this makes a big part of it much easier, so I'm more than happy with the purchase.

We have been using Billable for a while now and it is really a very easy to use and manage invoice app that our business is pleased with. The one thing that we sorely need in order to make this a permanent part of our accounting is some simple reporting options. We need to submit monthly summaries to accounting such as a total of sales, total of salex tax collected, etc. It is a royal pain having to manually sift through each invoice and tally all this by hand when it should be a simple implementation to the app. If this were fixed, it would be much more useful on a wider level to normal businesses who need to handle monthly or periodic reports. As it is, I'm afraid we are going to have to find a replacement but hopefully the developer will grow this app a bit so it will remain useful.

LOVE this app! The one feature I would like to see added that hasn't been mentioned (that I've seen anyway) is a button next to "Print" in the invoice section that will "Email PDF" - I mean we've added the customers email address to the database, so why not use it? Sure you can click the PDF button in the print dialog box, but then you have to manually name the PDF. Most invoice programs support some sort of "email PDF invoice" service, I think it would be a great addition.

Thanks for the feedback kinabrew. I'll see if I can add some of those as the application evolves.

All the critical missing features are added with this perfect update. This is a really slick, really easy to use invoicer with the cleanest most attractive ui I've seen. Excited to see this update I've been waiting for...

This seems like a very good start. I like the flexible data entry, like the ability to type dates in yyyy/mm/dd or mm/dd/yyyy format in the date fields, the information in the starting points menu, and the way the developer seems to have put a lot of thought into how to make things simple. Controls are located right where you would expect them. The program has a very simple and well-organized interface, and is pretty easy to use for the most part. There are a few things which would really help: The lack of right-click ability is annoying. In the left pane, I find myself right-clicking on "Clients" hoping for "Add Client", right-clicking on individual clients hoping for "Edit Client", clicking on individual clients or other items and hoping for "Delete", or clicking on the "Services" category under "Clients" hoping for "New Service". In the top pane, I find myself right-clicking hoping for "Copy"(to copy an entire item, or if an individual field is selected, just the field), "Delete" and "Duplicate". In many Mac programs, like in the Finder, when something is selected, you can hit return to highlight its name and rename it. This ability, and the ability to hit tab and shift-tab to get to the previous or next item would be useful both in the left pane, renaming clients or categories, and in the top pane, quickly changing client, date or summary information. A delete button would be a useful button in the button bar at the top, and the ability to go to Edit:Undo to un-delete an item from the top pane would be much appreciated. "+ -" menus at the bottom of the left pane like the ones at the bottom of the client editor would make it easier to add clients or folders to sort things. The invoices look very nice, but I'd also like a little more ability to edit what appears and the location of things on the invoice.

Recognizing that this is a 1.0 release, there's still plenty of room for improvement. I do like the simplified, no-fuss style. However, when I attempted to import my clients from Address Book into the app, this is what I got: "This version of Billable uses a new database format. Migration to this new format is only supported in 1.0b6 and greater. Please quit Billable, erase your existing user files as discusses on the wiki and relaunch. Sorry about the inconvenience."
