Small business owners and freelancers can rejoice -- as promised, the folks at Acclivity LLC have released their free AccountEdge Mobile app for the iPad, a mobile companion to their Mac and Windows AccountEdge 2011 desktop application which now syncs key data via Dropbox.
Acclivity LLC has just released the debut version of AccountEdge Mobile, a free iPad-only companion app for their desktop AccountEdge 2011 accounting software for Mac and Windows. The iOS mobile app was a key feature of this year’s upgrade, which we told you about earlier this month.
“AccountEdge Mobile is the only way to record sales, activity slips, and expense transactions on your iOS device and sync them back to AccountEdge 2011 (US edition),” the app description reads. “Utilize the data already in your AccountEdge company file to help you run your business while on the road. Allow your team to be more productive and have access to card and list data to help them record transactions, no matter where they are.”
Although Acclivity promised AccountEdge Mobile would arrive for both the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad, the company posted on their blog last week that the iPhone version would be delayed just a bit. “One note: we made the decision to initially release an iPad-only version,” the company announced on December 14. “The iPhone version is almost-but-not-quite there. We’re hopeful to have AEM iPhone-compatible in the next couple weeks.”
Apple’s App Store approval elves have been working overtime and AccountEdge Mobile was released Monday morning, only six days after the Acclivity team posted that it had been submitted. AccountEdge Mobile is a free 4.1MB download for the iPad which requires iOS 3.2 or later as well as a free (or paid) Dropbox account for data sync, and of course the latest U.S. version of AccountEdge 2011 as well.
