very odd: new feature dropbox sync of customer data without an option to encrypt data /handpalm

grandtotal has only a switch to sync to dropbox. one cannot define an own path like in most apps with sync options. a request to the developer how to outsource the data to an (encrypted) volume stayed unanswered.

also several of my friends using version 3 complain about more complicated handling.

i guess i save the 39 bucks of an upgrade...

I have been using this app for a little under a year. And while the app is descent its really nothing special and actually quite difficult to navigate and figure out at first. But in the end it does its job (kind of) and since i couldn't find a better app i decided to stick with this one. Now i see they have v4, i played around with for a bit and I'm having a very hard time understanding for what exactly do they want 39 EUR for??? Not upgrading, Im sticking with V2 and keep an eye out for a better app.

With the new version my overall workflow has improved.
The UI is slicker and more clear.

Sure, there are some feature missing from the V2 but I hope the developer will add them back in the future.

now i've played around a little with the new version. its really a joke to call this and upgrade. ease of use is diminished: no more right clicking to duplicate an invoice, no quick view of the gross or net amount in the "open", "due", "overdue" or "invoices"-view, the app doesn't remember the window settings: if you click on the arrow in front of the invoices view to see the years, close and restart the app you have to click the arrow again to see the years. if you have to renumber invoices because of a mistake - good luck. its not possible. still no multiple databases. developer please tell us: what exactly are the new features that make it a worthy upgrade? it can't be the interface changes, because they are not for the better.

I actually got all sorts of issues of database corruption and other weirdness in past incarnations, but was able to still deal with my accounting.. and though I tried other options at some point as I had sworn I would never ever touch this again, I was in the end too lazy and afraid o changing and kept postponing the day I'd move to another system, considering all the back billing etc I have done on this. So when v.3 came around I gave it a try and so far so good, there are changes on an organisational level but I think it actually makes for a cleaner/leaner experience. So far no problems, paid for it.

Also it still supports TimeLog (which I prefer over Timings mainlybecause of its iCal synching).

Version 3 is a paid "DOWNGRADE", that's right, not an upgrade. You pay for less features than version 2.

Gimmicks like "full retina support" and "new interface" are not new features, they are just gimmicks.

What is disappointing is that useful features like Smart Lists are now crippled and cannot get the same functionality as version 2. Unbelievably, totals are now missing from many lists.

What is insulting is the developer's arrogance. He doesn't even respond to queries and you just get a rude "if the answer is in the manual I won't reply'.

Well, asking for the useful features that are now missing from the previous version is legitimate on my book. Missing features are of course not in the manual, so I get no reply.

I've been supporting you from version GrandTotal 1, but you won't get another cent from me,

Been using GrandTotal since v1. Version 2 was a great improvement but occasionally crashed - I still loved it and recommended to everyone, even if Stefan the developer never acknowledged the bug.

Grand Total 3 is a huge disappointment. Icons are more modern, yes, but everything else is just a mess. The new layout is unintuitive, and now takes me longer to issue an invoice. Also missing the total of unpaid invoices in Overview, and I don't like the weird sorting either.

Overall, this version 'looks nicer' but once you start using it daily, it just is a step backward. I now downgraded back to GT2, and if that doesn't work on mavericks, I have to buy something else. which is a shame as I've been a GrandTotal fan and supporter for many years.

i understand that developers need to make a living. but why a paid upgrade that has almost no new features, just some interface changes? actually i'm missing a feature from version 2: the info that showed the sum of all open invoices in the open-section, where on could choose to show the net or gross amount with a click is gone. now you have to go to the still rather ugly dashboard section to see the amount of all open invoices without the ability to choose between net or gross (at least for the invoices). will wait for a "real" upgrade with more features...

I’m by no means a power user but I’m curious… what additional features would you like to see?

besides the feature i would like to get back from version 2 my biggest wish would be the possibility of multiple databases. i'm filing all my various data like email, banking etc. by year. that's not possible with GT. you have to keep all the data together in one big file.

Are you having any issues adding new clients?

I upgraded and everything seemed to be great but now it completely freezes up every time I try to add a new client. Frustrating. :/

I’m actually quite a fan of this application. Especially when paired with Timings.

It’s one of the only one I’ve tried that gives me absolute control over the look of my estimates and invoices. All you have to do is drop a PDF with the majority of your design elements already on a layout and it automatically gets applied as the background. No more horribly tiny or stretched logos. After that just tweak the overlaying app-specific pricing/client information bits, customize your fonts a little bit and away you go!

There a some workflow things that I struggle with constantly, especially when looking through estimates and invoices. All of the estimates I’ve ever created are listed on the Estimates section, even when they’ve been invoiced. You can filter by “Sent”, “Accepted” and “Cancelled” but not “Invoiced”. So, scanning through the list is impossible to see what’s active “Accepted” shows both open and invoiced estimates That one addition of being able to hide invoiced estimates would make a world of difference.

I love being able add custom fields to project templates. Lets me create custom messages on the cover page.

I wish the app would allow me to create estimate/invoice numbers on a per client basis but few-to-none do that, so that might be an unfair complaint.

Reporting side of things is a bit weak too.

I know a new version in in the works right now, so I think I’ve been wordy enough. Hopefully it gets brought up to the polish of Timings and its iPhone app.

In a nutshell, not perfect but suits my needs nicely. Far less clunky that Billings, and I used that for quite a while.

Hmm… it would appear that I like to omit punctuation. :)
