A few months back I was needing a quick and easy solution to creating and sending an invoice and despite there being other invoicing apps on the market, most of these required me to pay for them, go through the rigmarole of signing up or were just too bloated with features that they were confusing to use. I wanted to create something that was a lot more simple and straight to the point.
So I set out and created Billlappp. Billappp cuts out these annoying steps and lets you concentrate on doing what you want to do which is creating and sending an invoice as simply and effectively as possible.”
The app is ideal for freelancers and small businesses. The fact that it requires ‘no sign up’ to use makes it all the more ideal. The idea for this ‘no sign up approach’ is to immediately draw the user into the task that they are wanting to do which is create invoices.
Billappp’s intuitive interface
The intuitive interface for Billlappp resides somewhere in between Microsofts modern ui (formerly known as Metro) and the realistic apps of ios. This was my intention all along.
Apple have concentrated a lot recently in creating apps that represent items in the physical world. For instance the calculator app on ios looks and works as you’d expect one to work in real life. Microsoft on the other hand want to do the complete opposite, they want you to understand that it’s not physical but instead digital. Billlappp uses both of these ideals by making the actual invoice look like a physical one whilst the surrounding interface is made to look digital.
I created the interface to use the best ideals from both IOS and Microsoft Modern UI (formerly Metro)
The app is currently in open Beta v1.0 and has more features in the pipeline. In fact I’m working on some great new features at the moment but for me It’s all about the users! For every 100 users that sign up I’ll add more features. Simple!
Let me know what you think of Billappp.
