Android App for Outright

I am in the process of deciding whether or not to use Outright or continue to use QuickBooks Pro 2010. I would like to see Outright have an Android App that would allow total integration with the cloud to enter mileage using the built in Google Navigation GPS that would record business trips to have ready for tax preparation as well as all of the other Outright functionality.

I'm not sure about the functions mentioned above (GPS, etc.), but at the very least, Outright needs to become more mobile. I'm an Android user, so an Android app would be beneficial for my business, so I'm sure that apps for other devices would be beneficial for others as well. It would allow us to input expenses, view our reports, etc. on the road, wherever we are. Becoming more versatile.

Since mobility is rapidly growing, Outright would benefit the most for providing these features. Outright would see tremendous growth, if mobile apps were provided.

I'll second that recommendation.  Outright's an awesome app and it would be really cool to use it on my Droid phone and T-Mobile Slate

We would like to add to this.  We are starting with Outright b/c of its ease of use on desktop, but as we are on the road for 90% of business, an android app would be great.

Thanks for all the great feedback.  A mobile strategy is definitely on the road map, but there's no timeline at this point.  We'll keep you posted though as updates become available.

Sounds like a great suggestion. A mileage feature on an Outright app would pair perfectly with Outright's niche appeal to entrepreneurs/small biz community. There's been a long-felt need for a Google Maps mileage tracker for independent contractors/small businesses, and a void in the marketplace of one.

I would love an outright android app, so I could enter cash purchases right away instead of taking all receipts, or notes to the computer at the end of the day in order to log in, then record.

One thing that would be really useful would be to allow me to enter an expense on the phone and take a picture of the receipt.

I'm on the fence about which accounting software to get and mobility is a huge factor for me. I have an Android and want to be able to send invoices on the go and have my contacts synced with my gmail and phone contacts so it's all at one location. If Outright had this I wouldn't think twice and would sign up - since it doesn't I'm still fishing to see if someone else does have it. Even if I knew that you were in the process of creating it I would jump on board, but since it seems still up in the air, I'll keep looking around.

So of course there is an iphone app, but no love for Android users? Come on! There are just as many and soon to be more, Android users as their are iphone users. Stop treating us like second class citizens!

@mchaney and @deshawnmarie and all android users, We DO love you. There's no need to either berate or be nice to us. We WILL do this. We will. I don't take the 'planned' state of a thread lightly. It might seem that way, and, if so, I'm sorry. I don't have a date for you now, but, as I've said before, please feel free to send me an email (and include which phone you have) to get onto the list of folks who will see early versions. I'm kirby@outright.com.

Any updates on a timeline since 8/31/11?

I've been waiting a long time for this. iPhone users got theirs, and am waiting for Android (my husband on his Blackberry is outta luck.)

We're debating moving to QuickBooks, since paying $9.95 a month for this service just to be able to do it out of a browser, but not fully mobile, seems like a bit much to pay for only partial convenience...

Oh, I just saw the update from yesterday... Looks like we're still waiting without a date?

I'll e-mail...

I'm ready for the Android app, please! :) 

I love the site - I'm an accountant and one of my clients introduced me to it. She switched from Quickbook's monthly fee and is now using Outright. It's fantastic for small businesses who don't need all the bells and whistles (and complications) with Quickbooks. I'd just love to be able to enter mileage, expenses and maybe even snap pics of receipts from my Android mobile phone. Thanks for your work toward making this happen.

And, who doesn't love CRUSHING it? 

But, seriously, guys, thanks for all the emails offering to help test. I really appreciate it. I've got your names and devices and I'll be in touch. In the meantime, feel free to add your name to my list of testers and tell me how you'd like to use Outright on your phone.

Thanks, kirby (kirby@outright.com)

Just started using Outright a couple of months ago. Looking for a similar product that has and Android app. How we doing Kirby? Got a schedule or an update? Even if you can only say "this year" it would be enough to keep me around. (I think)

Thanks - Mike

Is the Android app going to launch anytime soon? I'm moving away from Apple and would like to continue using Outright.

On the trial version now and waiting to see how soon the Android app will be available. Would like to see the app soon so I can decide to keep or get rid of Outright. Thanks!

Just checking back in with you guys. First of all - Thank you guys for posting on these forums. We really do monitor them closely, and I can assure you we talk about this thread on a regular basis.

Believe me when I say that we hear you: You want an Outright Android App! I personally use an android phone (Galaxy Nexus) and I would love to have the app myself! Unfortunately, at this time, I don't have any new news to share on the development of the Android App. I know that isn't the answer you guys are looking for, and it's not one I particularly love giving, but it's important for us to be as forthright and honest with you guys as possible. 

In the meantime, we'd love to continue to add to our already-healthy list of users who would be willing to help us test when we arrive to that point in the process (and it is also worth noting that they will be the first ones to get their hands on the app). If you are interested in adding your name to that list feel free to post here or continue to email Kirby (kirby@outright.com). 

In addition, any new information we have will be posted here first, so if you are subscribed to this thread you will be get the word as soon as we give it. 

Thanks!

Jared,

Thanks for your response, but obviously us Android users are not a priority to your company or else you would know the status and even more importantly, we would have something by now. The fact that you already have one for iOS even though there are more android devices in the world is mind boggling and extremely frustrating. All the main work has already been done, you just have to hire a contractor to do the android version. Could be done in less than a month if you actually tried.

Yes I would love an Android app for outright, Im a self employed musician who travels worldwide 38 countries thus far and of course I have worldwide expenses to track :-) and worldwide income to enter ;-) sometimes I have to wait weeks before updating records. An app would ease the pain. It would be awesome to start 2013 with and Outright Android App!!!

Mchaney,

Since you seem to know everything about this, why don't you offer your services to outright for free like they are offering to you?  If you aren't willing to do that, then I would like you to choose between the following three optioins:

A) Go buy an iPhone

B) Quit using outright

C) STFU

It blows my mind how much people on this forum bitch about the features that a free product offers.  And if you pay $10 per month like some of the rest, that's still no justification for you to say the things you've said.  I assume that almost everyone here has built their own business.  If you have, you know you had to make tough decisions with regarding how to use the resources you had (time and money).  Obviously, with unlimited capital and/or manpower, outright would make this a priority.  Since they aren't, I can only assume there are bigger fish to fry or ways they feel their money is better spent (such as bringing in new customers).  This entitlement attitude is what is ruining America right now.  Customers of mine that try to tell me how to run my business quickly become former customers of mine (my decision, not theirs).  Lucky for you, it seems that outright prefers customer service more than I do.
