Certify Expenses iOS app review


I used Expensify at my old company before changing job and being given Certify at my new.
Certify’s app is horrible. If you value your employees, or at least value their opinion, don’t use it.

Expensify is a native app that works offline, syncs intelligently, and offers automatic receipt transcription.

Certify just fills me with hate. It looks and feels like a web app packaged as an application. For example – it appears to offer caching receipt photos locally with a sync to the server, so that must mean it works offline, right? No. You are required to log in EVERY TIME you open the app, although it does auto-enter your password, and if you aren’t online – you can’t log on.


It does dynamically change fields based on the type of expense; good for all sorts of back end statistics, I’m sure, but bad for actually entering them.

I’m serious: the ability to simply snap a photo as you get out of the cab / step away from the counter, makes expenses truly frictionless, and removes an annoying admin burden from people who want to do their job. But that’s Expensify, or other similar products – it’s definitely not Certify.
