[prMac.com] Dusseldorf, Germany - Lifelike, an independent studio that creates iOS and Mac apps, today announced the launch of Alto, a new app that represents a breakthrough for mobile invoicing. Available for iPhone and iPad, Alto simplifies invoicing on the go for freelancers, consultants, small business and professionals. Alto features integrations with payment gateways and cloud based file stores for instant payment and the referencing of work documents.
"Today's reality is that almost everyone who works for a living is constantly on the move," said Lee Black, CEO of Lifelike and creator of the Alto app. "Having to get yourself back to a PC in order to invoice is just not practical. For a lot of businesses, being on the go is what it's all about - today's entrepreneurs need to invoice or generate estimates wherever they are at any time."
Alto brings desktop-class invoicing and time tracking functionality to mobile devices. The app enables small businesses and freelancers to track billable hours, send estimates and invoices and get paid. Users can choose from five invoice template options to suit their brand images. The Alto Timer companion app makes it possible for users to track billable time on the fly and then bill for it instantly by email. Alto can work for individuals or teams.
The app features integration with Stripe, Square and Paypal to make Alto a payment processing app that can collect funds from clients. Integration with Dropbox, Github, and Photos enables the user to reference files, documents, images, code commits and other items needed to support an invoice. AddressBook integration simplifies setup and streamlines the invoicing process. A built-in set of animated visual charts give the user visibility into business statistics.
