I’ve been using for years and recommend it to everyone who asks. As an accountant that’s a lot of people. I just wish there was a way to integrate the gps tracking into Apple CarPlay.
Complicated not reliable 1/5
The app is complicated and the web interface not reliable. It keeps having errors.
Super easy! 5/5
I used to hate expense reporting but no longer! This is super fast, easy and no stress.
Worst App and Service ever 1/5
The list is too long but most importantly there is zero customer service. Also, the app doesn’t have full functionality and if you have want to use the web interface from your mobile, you can’t as it auto directs you to the app
Biggest improvement to my quality of life since the smartphone 5/5
By kippy andernutz
I’m a career management consultant - travel weekly, sometimes to different clients over the course of a week. Most but not all of my expenses are billable. And I am one of the owners of the firm, so I’m involved in submitting expenses for reimbursement, approving others’s expenses for reimbursement, invoicing, bookkeeping - the whole process. We started using Expensify a year ago, moving away from the receipt + tape method to 100 percent digital scanning. While we don’t use Expensify for invoicing (super buggy to re-bill expenses through Expensify), it nonetheless has streamlined our entire process, improved accuracy, and saved considerable time and frustration for everyone. Highly recommend!
Needs PDF Support! 4/5
My company uses Expensify and it is generally awesome. The only thing missing on the iOS app is the ability to attach a PDF to an expense. My receipts generally aren’t paper receipts, but I can attach a PDF as proof of purchase so I can be reimbursed. I know this is supported in the web app, would love to see it come to mobile.
By I Build Stuff
Saves a lot of time and it is more professional than the previous programs I’ve used. Easy to use. Only knock is that it doesn’t read all receipts, so you just have to manually type in the info.
So easy 5/5
Love this app. Both of my businesses use it for all of our receipts and expense reporting
Can’t even submit expense 1/5
You create an expense and the “Reimbursable” switch is set to on. Then you open the expense again and it’s set to off. You switch it on and save. Open the expense again and it’s set to off again. What a joke.
Smartscan takes long 3/5
The Smartscan feature takes too long. Other than that the app works fine.
Easy Peasy 5/5
By IT Sales
This Expensify app makes my expense reporting so easy. Love the app
Fabulous and flexible 5/5
I recently returned from a month long trip abroad and used expensify to keep track of my receipts. I could take a quick picture of the receipt and the program would (eventually) pull out the needed info. I could also choose to enter any info manually.
It was easy to categorize expenses.
I just finished out the reports and downloaded them. They are well formatted. The $4.99 monthly subscription was well worth the cost. Since I don’t travel often I cancelled my subscription after downloading my reports. I’ll resubscribe next time I’m on an extended trip.
No fit the small business! 1/5
I decided to cancel my subscription because I wasn’t using it enough. They charged me a $55 cancellation fee!!! It also takes a very long time to upload/scan receipts.
Unsatisfied with the changes. 2/5
We started using Expensify several years ago and found it to be a great help. It was the answer to so many of our issues we were having with our international travel.
The changes in the past months have forced us to find another option for our needs. It is no longer user friendly. Costomer service is non existent. We cannot find a way to talk to a live person. On top of these frustrations the cost increased.
We paid until the end of our annual subscription and then they would have continued to take the monthly fee had the credit card on file not expired.
Jacked up system not sync 1/5
By Marco Olivares
Not at all, my scans from phone will not sync
Employer has us use this application for mileage tracking and expenses. I find the mileage tracker extremely clunky. Other apps much more user-friendly and do not require you to manually start a GPS mode. They automatically track the mileage.
Not intuitive 1/5
Too difficult to use.
Great Solution 5/5
Granted, I have not tried other expense tracking products since I started to use Expensify a number of years ago, but I have kept up to date on competitive features, and Expensify continues, in my opinion, to be the best solution for a small to medium-sized company. Very easy to set up, administer, and use on a day-to-day basis. Take a quick picture or forward an email receipt, select a category, and submit. Submission can be done manually, at the end of a trip (location-based),or based on a predefined (or custom) time period.
The dopest of dopest apps 5/5
By Not great don't buy pick something else
It’s a dope app, nah mean?
By Dr. Jimmy James
What else can I say?
Awesome app 5/5
It was very easy and straightforward to approve expenses on Expensify.
This app works really well. 5/5
We’ve been using this app for many years. Easy to use and versatile app. We recommend it to anyone who needs to track receipts either for claiming or just filing for tax.
You are not helping! 1/5
This new feature that automatically assigns receipts to a random open expense report is the WORST.
Support says it is an “option that cannot be turned off.” News flash, if you can’t turn it off, it is NOT an option.
We have multiple clients and projects. These projects incur expenses that must be on DIFFERENT expense reports and come in at DIFFERENT times. She. I email a receipt, as I have done for the past four years, it should be UNASSIGNED or give me the OPTION to have it remain so.
Do some research before you make a new feature that could impact your user base.
Great concept but buggy 2/5
I like how it works usually, but keeps telling me to fix violations but blank screen. If this app worked it would be great.
If you want to pay for all your receipts to be lost, ... 1/5
if you want to spend weeks in inane and time consuming communication with customer service that doesn’t know how their own app works — Boy oh boy, is this is the app for you. This was by far the most idiotic and frustrating experience I’ve ever had with any piece of software in my life — and I use a lot of technology. Run far far away from this and use anything else. I’ll be photographing and manually entering my receipts now after learning this took ten times more time and one hundred times more frustration than the straight up old fashioned way.
I'm so sad I have been using this app since May 2013 and now I have to pay for a subscription.
Designed to prevent reimbursements 1/5
They advertise that you just need to scan your receipt and done! But then you have to close the app, wait an unknown amount of time, and then go back in to actually submit your expense. I've had a couple hundred dollars worth of expenses not reimbursed over the last year because I forgot to log back in to do part 2 until after the 30 day window is done. How do you not have notifications constantly reminding users that they have uploaded expenses that they're not going to get paid for unless they submit them?!
So easy to use 5/5
Man it’s legit easy to use cut my expense time in half
Super bowl 1/5
Put your app on a super bowl commercial. Genius... problem is all is does is crash. So much for that app
Be VERY sure about Expensify pricing policies... 1/5
I have a small business and had hoped Expensify would help with organizing and tracking staff expenses and such...but the set up and process didn’t provide the benefits I’d expected for my particular needs. I tried it out for several weeks (after the initial trial), realized it wasn’t for me, but then got busy with other work, and waited several months to find the log in info and cancel the account. It promptly warned me that I was on a very confusing annual plan, and that they would have to bill me for a higher rate for the months I’ve been using the program. Though I hadn’t been “using” the program, I suppose I didn’t meet the qualifications of an inactive user(?), and that I would have to pay a canceled subscription charge amounting to about 6 months of fees I’d already been paying for 8 months.
While I am not normally affected by irritations such as this, it seemed incredibly deceptive, even after reading through the pricing structure again afterwards, and has prompted me to write this review, hoping it might encourage others to understand it thoroughly before committing to an Expensify program. It might have been cheaper to keep the program for the extra months and cancel later, but by that time I was too huffy to consider it, and just wanted out. Too bad. I might have revisited it another time, but certainly not now.
Free or not Free?? 1/5
By Nickname is nunya
I getting tired of this latest scheme that developers are using to trick you into downloading an app, enter you email or phone number only to find out you have to pay a monthly fee to use the app. You used to be able to rely on going to the App Store and it would either say “Get” meaning it was free or it would have the price for the app and you could quickly make the decision whether you wanted to pay or not.
Apple really needs to take a hard look at this practice that is becoming common now and change it. You shouldn’t have to read carefully through all the fine print that a crafty sales team has created before downloading an app that you expect to be free but it is far from it.
App is ridiculously slow 1/5
Next time you decide to have a super bowl ad make sure your servers are able to handle the bandwidth you morons. I can’t even update my password !!!
Need help 1/5
There is not a “Join Now “ button so how do I make a new account ?
Priorities Change 1/5
That was the Super Bowl ad that diverted attention from the mobile app? Now I’m really scared about this service. App has been either crashing or continuing to logout every time for our entire organization.
Great app - cropped receipts would make it 5 star 4/5
I love this app! It makes tracking my receipts and submitting them for reimbursement so easy! Pointers: when doing a report, definitely DO go for the attach PDF option - this attaches your nice category grouped report, thumbnails of each receipt, and the full size scans.
Two things would make it even better: auto-crop the receipts and make them B&W, and also group multiple scans on a single page so the resulting report isn’t so long.
Such a time saver!
Lousy instructions 1/5
Can’t figure it out.
Kick me out 1/5
It kick me out from the app, cant login now
APP CRASHES EVERY TIME! 1/5
I would love to give a positive review because I have used this app for years and it has been good, but in the past two weeks I have not been able to enter a single receipt. The customer service is good in that they “respond” to my requests for help, however they can give no answer to when the issue will be resolved. So now the app is useless and I wait each day for the update that will “fix” it, but so far none have resolved the issue and they keep saying “next update will fix it” but no time frame. Very disappointed!
2 chainz 5/5
Love the 2 Chainz promo!
So far so great 5/5
By andrew sorre
It makes a lot of sense, shows me exactly what my expenses are, organized, and keeps me from hoarding receipts and losing them come tax time. Saving me money, and 5 dollars a month is a no brainer for this app. Love love love it.
Small business review 5/5
By Viet manager
My boss was still using a filing system to record his expenses and then I was suppose to photocopy it for our Cpa, this is ten thousand times more convenient!
Don’t send me to your site to do things your app can’t do and then not let me into your site from my phone. People are mobile.
Require email/password. Good scan functionality but gimmicky- asks for work email, keeps trying to show music videos, I will delete.
Clunky and Slow 1/5
By Scagpooole Till Die
“More options”— this is wear you keep the reimbursable button? I have to click this button AFTER I expand the screen. For those of us that actually have to use this app, it’s very clunky and difficult. I submit expenses daily for my work and this app is sucking seconds-minutes of my life. Seems trivial but I know you can do better than this lay-out. Reach out for suggestions-
You can not ever cancel your account once you try it. 1/5
Don’t do it!! Not worth the hassle. If you ever want to close and delete your account you can not do it. Unsubscribed over a year ago and I received another email today. Tried to delete account following their instructions. Nope won’t work.
Great aide! 5/5
Over the past few years I’ve found Expensify to be a great help in my ministry. Makes preparing and submitting expenses much less painful!
Will never use/nor recommend this app 1/5
If you’re using this to classify receipts for business purposes, be sure to use your personal email to create an account or else you’ll lose everything when you change companies. And this is the only app I’ve seen that won’t let you change your email address on your account.
Add Automatic gps 4/5
App is great. I just wish they can add automatic gps and than I can choose if it was a business trip or not. Having to start the gps than stop I dislike. We have other things to think about I want to jump in my car and go make sons money but at the same time the apps that I pay for should have my back to track my miles. I do a lot of traveling and I forget to turn on the gps. Please add automatic GPS.
Great stuff 5/5
