Each month I highlight web or mobile apps that are useful to lawyers. Sometimes the apps are developed specifically for lawyers and other times I feature non-legal apps that are nevertheless interesting to lawyers.
Today’s app is Shoeboxed. This app simplifies the often arduous process of tracking expenses and receipts. Instead of setting aside receipts and organizing and submitting them upon your return to the office, you can instantly capture them using your iPhone’s camera. Once the receipts are digitalized, you can, using either your iPhone or via the online interface, categorize the expenses as reimbursable or deductible. Uploaded receipts are fully searchable via vendor, notes, the date, and the total amount expensed.
The app also allows you to track mileage. And, once entered, all expenses are easily exportable into a number of programs, including Excel, Quickbooks, and many other accounting programs.
The app is available for both the iPhone and iPad and the basic version is free. If you travel for work often, this app is for you–so give it a try. Since it’s free, you have nothing to lose. You can download it here.
