It is a great app, however, when it comes to usability it still lags in some areas and it needs major improvement when it comes to being user-friendly. I would say that it has been greatly improved over the years but it is still not where it should be compared to QuickBooks.

Although we use little the solution seems quite pleasant to use. It has all the necessary features to meet intercompany and multi-currency needs. We also greatly appreciate your custom reporting capabilities. The platform for preparing and sending invoices is quite complete and easy to use. We also see a lot of potential in the Time Tracking module.

FreshBooks implementation is very easy and it has a great user interface, which means any user can start using it easily. It has great documentation and helpful blog/forum articles. I love the remote access feature very much. Easy to navigate and customize reports. As it is running in the cloud, we can access it from anywhere and start resuming work.

It's a fantastic app, and it's very easy to use. I will admit, I don't use it so much anymore however because I already have great systems in place and I also don't like the limit on clients for the lite cost. I feel at $15/mo you should be able to manage more clients than 5. I don't use as many as 50 clients a month, but I certainly manage more than 5 as a freelancer.

But overall, the usability is easy and I'd recommend it to people who don't already know how to manage their books.

The FreshBooks user interface is easy to learn. In terms of ongoing, every day use, FreshBooks is very simple and allows me to do all the things I need to with an accounting software, while not having to be an accountant. I can use FreshBooks on the go with the mobile app as well.

FreshBooks is very easy to use even for novices. If you're looking for an online accounting software that is full of features, has great aesthetics and is user-friendly, then this is definitely the software for you. I've been using it for several years now and despite being tempted to switch by other vendors, I like the feel of FreshBooks and it's mobile features.
