Does anyone use Ballpark for invoicing/estimating/tracking? I just came across it, and it looks pretty great. For a freelancer it's $6/month. For the few freelance projects I do, I basically make my own invoices, etc. But this looks pretty handy. Might be a nice addition if I get into more freelance work.

Are there other similar sites/programs out there that anyone uses?

When I first started out it was hard to track all the printed invoices and I dreamed of a simple invoice software. I started using quickbooks pro and for me that works really well to track expenses, income and manage invoices. It made taxes a lot easier too.

It's hard to use at first but after a while it's pretty easy. You just have to stay on top of it.

I think there's a free online simplified version.

looks pretty slick, though I wish it had a couple other accounting features... seems like you would still need another product like quickbooks to keep everything in order. I really like the collaborative features and online interface though

Its funny in the demo video example, Nike has the option to pay it's contractors via paypal!
