Online accounting service ‘FreshBooks’ releases Android application

Adding to Android’s repertoire of business-oriented applications, popular cloud accounting software ‘FreshBooks’ released their first foray into the OS.

Introduced on the company’s blog, the company appears to have gone all-out with version 1.0 of their application. Rather than waiting to complete accounting tasks once back at a computer, the app allows users to take care of invoices, enter in expenses, and track time (with a built-in timer and fee calculator).

The app’s description in the Play Store also states that users can work offline and data will be synced back once an internet connection returns.

FreshBooks is available for free in the Play Store.
