What are QuickBooks Apps?
QuickBooks apps are specialty third-party applications built for specific accounting needs. For example, if you are a contractor then you might need very specific features for managing jobs, change orders, work in progress, etc.
Developers can build QuickBooks apps to meet these specific needs and provide these to QuickBooks users through the QuickBooks app store. Intuit benefits by supporting these third-party app developers because QuickBooks is built for general accounting with a common feature set.
These third-party apps enable QuickBooks users to accomplish very specific use cases even though these features are not built into the core QuickBooks accounting feature set.
How to Decide Between QuickBooks Apps and Native Features
If you have specific needs that are not addressed by QuickBooks it’s quite possible that this need will be addressed by a QuickBooks app.
- Search through the QuickBooks app store to get an understanding of what’s available,
- read through the reviews to understand if others have used this app to solve the problem you are trying to solve,
- and give the third-party QuickBooks app a try.
