Receipts by Wave is here to help you remove the clutter of paper receipts from your life. It is linked to Wave, a website that helps individuals and small business with accounting.
Receipts by Wave is very easy to use. First, you will be required to register a new Wave account to use the app. Then, you are free to take a picture of one of your receipts or bills. After you’ve taken a picture, it is processed, and some of the information from your receipt or bill, such as the name of the store or date of purchase, will be entered into a form. You’ll then have to edit the entries or add more information as necessary. When you are satisfied that the information is correct, you can press verify and your receipt will be uploaded to your Wave account.
Unfortunately, I found the information from my receipts didn’t enter into forms well. I took a number pictures of receipts and I never got a perfect result. Maybe my receipts were part of of problem but Receipts by Wave would usually only correctly capture the name of store. This meant I had to manually enter the total price, category, date of purchase, and add what I purchased. Considering that I had to wait a minute for my receipts to be processed, I might as well use that time to enter the receipt into Wave or another service manually.
If you want to remove the clutter of paper receipts from your life, and you don’t mind the fuss of correcting each receipt you add, you can download Receipts by Wave for free from the App Store here. Then, let us know if any of your receipts were processed correctly.
