Stint for iPhone App Review

Stint for iPhone App Review

Anyone who has used Freshbooks will be familiar with the kind of function Stint offers. If you are in any line of work that deals with invoicing others for periods of time then you need a decent, accurate method of tracking that time properly so you can pay for it appropriately, or indeed charge others for hours you have worked. Stint takes this process and simplifies it as much as it can to make the whole thing easier to keep track of. Stint is available now from the App Store for $4.99 (unfortunately you cannot invoice Apple for it) and is compatible with the iPhone, iPod and iPad with iOS 5.1 or later.

Stint certainly succeeds at being simple and the layout is excellent. Launch the app and you will be taken to the main menu where you can view a list of all your clients set up within the app, as well as the projects they are associated with and the time spent on it so far.

Creating a new project is also easy and simply involves tapping a plus button and filling in the form that follows. There is a decent amount you can customise, such as how many days are accounted for in the week and how many hours are worked per day. Adding clients can either be done through the app’s own management system or simply by adding the contacts on your iPhone. With all this set up you can then set up a rate of pay and the project is ready to go.

Tapping a project will display more information on its status so you can act accordingly. If a project is complete you can archive it, otherwise you can add timed entries, while a progress bar shows you how far along it is towards completion. Tapping this bar will also show you how much the project has earned you so far.
Adding entries is easy and all you have to do is tap the clock image next to a project, then set a date and time for it. You can then add notes on what the entry covers. While this is simple to do it is not immediately obvious and does take a little working out but you should pick it up soon enough.

Invoicing is just as easy and involves tapping the dollar sign by a project, which will show you all the entries that have yet to be invoiced. From here you can select the ones you need to do and send an invoice directly to your client. Again the information here can be customised.

Overall this is a great little app that makes this kind of activity incredibly simple. It boils it down to the basics and makes it a lot easier to keep track of who owes who what, so you can deal with it more efficiently. Some of the controls could be made clearer but they are intuitive enough for you to figure it out quickly. If you need to keep track of projects while on the move then bringing it to your iPhone this way is a great way to go about it.
