    "Proof that beauty is only skin deep"

    November 10, 2008  |   By pcal


    This review was originally posted on
    Billings looks very nice. The UI is reasonable intuitive. It's really the only app of it's type that looks and feels like a real mac app.

    That's about all the good I can say about it. Some of the not so good I would say about it:
    - It crashes
    - On a good day, it uses 5% CPU in the background. Why?
    - On most days, it eventually uses upwards of 25% CPU in the background.
    - It's true that it has a highly customizable templating engine, but good luck figuring out how to use it.
    - It has a fairly bizarre and useless way of tracking time in a working slip: it doesn't track "4pm to 5:30pm". Rather, it just tracks that you spent 90 minutes. It has no notion of start or end time.
    - The reporting/invoicing engine has no support for totaling time spent on an invoice (despite users asking for this for literally years)

    I paid $60 for this software barely six months ago. I think there was one update in that time. And apparently I've seen the last update I'm going to see without paying another $35 for 3.x. Unacceptable.

    I'll limp along with it for now until I can find something better.
