Default iPhone time and material tracking app

Just curious if anyone uses their iphone for tracking time and material? If so would you mind sharing the app that you use? Any opinions on this would be appreciated.

where I work we are using ESC Mobile. Dispatches, clock in and out, customer records, etc. Eventually, we will be totally paperless. I can run credit cards on the iPhone too, using GoPayment

I can spend the whole day on my Iphone on facebook, twitter and playing games. That way I never have to get any work done

for a whole lot less money and aggravation you can write your time and materials down on an invoice, give it to the customer and maybe even get paid right then.

I must disagree, i have to beleive the corect software will increase productivity, and decrease office supply overhead, and allow for more efficiency throughout all depts.

Finding the right price and software is the difficult part

I have to believe that we have 13 employees working 5 to 6 days a week and nobody, including me owns an Iphone or any of that crap. In fact all the office computers are still running windows XP. Quit looking for gadgets, apps and other ways to fritter away your money and time and concentrate on business.

I accept chk,cash,and credit cards i quit taking goats and chickens for payment.
In all seriosness being able to pull cust history will increase cust service and allow for lower admin cost.

I know plenty of colleagues who got stuck with thousands of dollars of cb radio equip just to find cell phones were the new way to go.

Now cell phones r evolving

Until your cell phone can rough DWV and potable water supply piping it's little more than a PITA distraction. Something you paid big money for, make big monthly payments to keep and so you all feel the need to actually make it pay for itself which it will never ever do. It's a toy. If you want to keep in touch with the office a 19 dollar trac phone works fine.

Go on now, you know you want to, can't help yourself, it's like an itch that has to be scratched. Reach into your pocket, Ahhh there it is all warm and smooth, just waiting for you to pull it free and gaze at the magnificence of its radiant black screen that beckons you to touch it and see if there is anything waiting for you there. Perhaps a message "what you doin?" ahhh a chance to reply, type away my friend, bask in the mystery of modern thumb twiddling "nothing" ain't technology wonderful? Dooooooh
