  • Version 10 changes the pricing model of Easy Books. We no longer offer add-ons as separate one-time fees on each platform. Features are now available on a subscription basis and work on both iOS and Mac for a low monthly fee.

Version 9.2 - 8 Mar 2016

  • Improvements to Online Sync. All updates are cross-checked after the database changes have been committed.
  • Improvements to organisation of accounts. Accounts can now be moved from one container to another, or from their basic category into a container and vice-versa regardless of whether they have statements. This would otherwise lock the account into a single category or container.

Version 9.1 - 4 Jan 2016

  • Fixed an issue affecting the Qty field when entering sales. When using the in-built calculator to divide by a fractional amount between zero and one, the calculator could fail, incorrectly reporting a divide by zero error.
  • Fixed an issue affecting the presentation of aggregate sales and purchases in the VAT report. VAT was correctly reported in the main report and calculation, but if the sum of transactions per expense or income account was zero, the VAT was not displayed in the tables of aggregated sales and purchases.

Version 9.0.3 - 5 Dec 2015

  • Improved the display of currency amounts. When a three letter currency code is used the extra padding before the first digit helps make the amount more easily legible.
  • Improved behaviour of the sales list screen. Previously editing an item on the same date as another item would re-order it to the bottom of the list.
  • Fixed an issue affecting the Qty field. Under some conditions of region setting and entering fractional amounts, the value would be rounded down.

Version 9.0.2 - 25 Nov 2015

  • Fixed an issue affecting the Trial Balance report. If foreign currency accounts were grouped under a container the gains/losses figure was incorrectly reported.
  • Fixed an issue where restoring from a backup containing foreign currency accounts may have caused the application to become unresponsive.
  • Fixed a sync issue affecting the display of foreign currency balances in Accounts screen. Under certain conditions the balance was shown incorrectly after syncing changes. The issue was mitigated by running the Trial Balance report, which notices and fixes discrepancies.
  • Fixed an issue affecting viewing transactions shared via sync in read-only mode. This could cause the app to quit unexpectedly. The issue was mitigated by running the Trial Balance report, which notices and fixes discrepancies.

Version 9.0.1 - 18 Nov 2015

  • Exchange rates obtained from the web are cached in the app and added to the list of manually set exchange rates. *¬†Fixed an issue affecting the display of amounts in reports when a comma is defined as the decimal separator in the device's region settings.

  • Multiple-currency support. Easy Books now includes support for 150+ foreign currencies. Many people have requested this feature and we're very pleased to have been able to add it in a way that doesn't affect single-currency businesses.

Version 8.3.2 - 11 Jul 2015

Version 8.3.1 - 2 Jun 2015

  • The Profit and Loss report has been improved to show sub totals and gross profit.
  • Fixed an issue affecting invoice layout for currencies that use a three letter currency code in place of a symbol.

Version 8.3 - 22 May 2015

  • Invoices now include the currency code (ISO 4217) in the grand total line. Previously the app picked up the currency format from device settings. Whereas Easy Books is a single currency app, this prevented use of businesses with different exponents in the same device. For example, the British Pound contains 100 Pence, the Bahraini dinar is divided into 1,000 fils and the Vietnamese dong no longer uses a minor currency unit. A new business setting in Easy Books allows you to select the currency manually.
  • The Profit and Loss report has been improved. You can now choose between accrual (standard) or cash basis accounting. When using cash accounting the value of unpaid invoices are applied as adjustments to the income and expenses. See the blog post Cash Accounting in Easy Books.

  • Customer and Supplier based reports now use today's date by default. Financial reports still run to the end of the open period.

  • Improved UI when entering split transactions on iPhone.
  • Tap and hold VAT Rate to quickly select the standard VAT account.
  • Tap and hold navigation buttons in reports to select a specific date or range for the report.
  • Selecting "None" as the VAT account in a transaction now reads "Outside the Scope".
  • Fixed an issue where sale transactions not linked to a VAT account were included in sales total. Transactions explicitly outside the scope of VAT are no longer included in this figure.

Version 8.2.1 - 7 Apr 2015

  • Invoice total to pay is now presented as bold text to make it clearer for your clients to find the amount to pay.
  • Improvements to report navigation.

Version 8.1.7 - 2 Feb 2015

  • Fixed an issue affecting the invoice signature. The signature was not shown if there were no payment terms.
  • Fixed an issue affecting the copying of a sale with linked payments. Initially the new sale appeared with the PAID logo incorrectly.
  • Fixed an issue affecting repeating transactions for payments received. These did not link to original sale.
  • Fixed an issue affecting Time Tracker sales. The user preference for amounts to show amounts inclusive of tax could produce incorrect amounts in invoices. All rates should be defined as exclusive of tax and the preference should only change the way the amounts are presented on screen.
