HourBill keeps track of your expenses and/or hours spent. It features fast data entry, a clean user interface designed for at-a-glance readability, strong support, a robust off-site multi-level backup-and-restore system, and it is immensely configurable. HourBill is time and expense billing software reinvented for speed and efficiency. It's all about workflow. Here is what HourBill gives you: • free remote backups going back in time. Every backup remains available as a Restorable snapshot. (Unlimited in the Unlocked version.) • direct input of times on app startup: tap Enter, and you're done. This is like a timer on steroids: you can change the start or end time immediately if you choose; you don't have to enter the time at all if the time is now. • create Phrases that are stored in the app and can be reused to reduce or eliminate the need to type notes for entries or accounts/invoices. (The free version is restricted to 5 Phrases in each category.) • an Undo/Redo system for data entered into an account, invoice or entry screen. • generate invoices corresponding to billing periods, either on demand, or automatically in the background on a monthly, bimonthly, biweekly or weekly basis on a day of your choosing. • a calendar view which lets you inspect and edit the entries for any given day, in the Unlocked (paid) version. • email a report of any account or invoice, the entries for a day, or the entire contents of the app, to an address from your Contacts, in html or CSV for export to other apps such as Numbers or Excel. (The calendar and CSV capabilities are restricted to the Unlocked version.) • the contents of an account or invoice, the entries for a day (in the Unlocked version,) or the entire contents of the app, may also be printed out. • express hours worked in a variety of time formats and minimum time increments, ranging from military time to the half hour, independently for each account. • if you're entering an expense, tap the Mode switch to expenses if you're not already there, and tap in the amount. • switch accounts or create a new account with a tap and a swipe as soon as you start the app. • start or end a time block with one tap, which makes taking breaks off the clock easy. • transition from one job to the next with just a couple of taps. • enter or express entries in terms of start and end times, or in terms of hours worked, or as an expense, independently for each account or entry. • multiple rounding options in the Unlocked version. • automatic flagging of accounts for the presence of incomplete entries. • all aspects of an entry are editable at any time after it's created. • a PIN option in the Unlocked version. • back up at the touch of a button, or set the app to back up your current data automatically whenever the app is started. The best backup system is the one you use. • restore all of your data from any of your backups at the touch of a button. Tap and you're there! It doesn't get any easier. • transfer backup files between devices with HourBill installed, restoring one device from the backup file created on another. If you have any questions or comments about HourBill, or bug reports, we'd love to hear from you at our App Support link (support@thorjupitersoftware.com). You can also reach us with the 'Email The Developer' button in HourBill's Help screen. We want to make it all simple. Nobody gives better support than we do. Tell us what's going on. Please report bugs to us directly. We respond to everything. But note that we have no way of responding to issues raised in reviews on the App Store. It has to come directly to us, and the context you provide for it is often quite valuable, as we work through it together. HourBill is now built for iOS 8! Onwards and upwards!



  • Great app

    By Simply_Renee
    I've had 3 different jobs that I've used this app for (including 2 at the same time). It's made it very easy to keep hours straight and my bosses have found it very easy to pay me and keep time records from the export feature. One of the best app purchases I've made.
  • Backup stopped working

    By Bonedalearchitect
    I've used this app for a long time, but they never incorporated my suggestion / need to have sub-projects or sub categories. The last month, the backup to Google servers stopped working, meaning all my data is at risk if something happens to my phone! Am going to get a different app.
  • Used to be easy, now just confusing

    By MattBianco
    Good luck figuring this app. It used to be easy and intuitive. Now it is a struggle to figure out their cumbersome UI. Not to mention they took the same app and upgraded to make it fee oriented when the same key features were free before. I don't mind paying to get more, but paying to restore capabilities is a bait and switch.
  • Architect using for billing

    By svenskabjorn
    Been using this app for 3 years now and love it. It takes a little while to understand all the features, but I keep track of my time, costs, etc. and send invoices to clients from my phone. It saved me in times when clients ask for detailed recaps on time expended.
  • Excellent

    By xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx11111111
    As a building professional there are occasions when it is required to use the 'time and materials' format. Traditionally I would always forget a few hours here and there as I don't always carry my note pad. I do however always carry my phone and to input is so simple and handy it blows my mind. Probably the most valuable $5 bucks I ever spent. Try it for free - you can't go wrong!!
  • Time Saver!

    By Loud Mom
    Being a consultant and working for myself HourBill has saved me SO much time and is easy to use. The developer has always always been quick in response when I have had a question (I am technically challenged). It is the best $4.99 you will ever spend!
  • Best app for business

    By Don't waste your $
    I love how this app simplified my paperwork, tracking customers, and invoicing. The developers are very responsive and helpful. I would give 10 stars if I could.
  • Excellent and getting better all the time

    By ssymkens
    I have been using this app since it was introduced, it does an excellent job of keeping track the hours and expenses for multiple projects. The recent addition of a calendar makes it even more useful. Recommend it very highly.
  • Medical time billing made easy

    By Tennessee Tunes
    As a physician who has several contract jobs that require keeping up with the minutes I spend working for them I have had difficulty keeping a detailed record until I found HourBill. Now I can make a quick note of any services provided and have it ready to email at the end of every month. The ability to archive my records and back them up is very important for me. I even keep some personal accounts of people I need to pay for various services which helps me keep up with such expenses.
  • Awesome App

    By KLDish
    This app was exactly what I needed. I can track my hours and export them for billing. Wonderful app! Thank you!
