    There are a couple of guys developing stand alone apps for window cleaning. Think one is about to be released on Google play. You also have roundpartner that can be used on the phone as a webapp. I use to use Google calendar and evernote on my phone for a while.

    I am pure pen and paper, but really want to do it another way, used to do a spreadsheet, pc crashed and I lost everything, so wont do that again.

    I am thinking about buying a Microsoft office thingy, or even using round partner/George. as pen and paper is warring thin haha. especially as I have about 350 customers in 6/8/12 weekly. (mainly 6 weekly)

    I looked at Roundpartner when I first started but it seemed way too complicated to put new customers in. Its not that I couldn't do it, more that it was unnecessarily complicated. I gave up after putting in about 4 customers. Tried George on the free trial and took to it instantly. At the moment I only have around 120 customers and it works more than fine, but I could see that it could get unwieldy if you have hundreds and hundreds of customers.

    I haven't tried it on any kind of mobile device yet but was thinking of getting an Ipad to take out with me

    Just seen your comment regarding roundpartner brightvision
    What would you suggest that would make it easier to input new customers.
    We have recently added the benefit of adding a street with all the numbers in then later on you can add the customers details and schedule jobs in.
    You can also upload from George, there is an import button in the account section to make this easier.

    I simply just use Microsoft excel and save it to dropbox and I can access it through my laptop or phone or anything.

    Add, update, edit etc
