Version 1.8.9 is out, and it’s probably the last version until next year while we’re working on a bigger update for early 2024.

For this version:

  • We added an extra page at the end of the “Sales by Contact” report, listing all the services and products and the total quantity and amount sold for each (only when printing the report for all contacts). This lets you tell at a glance how much of each service or product you sell and have a better notion of what your farrier business is focusing on.
  • If you live in Australia and have your device set up to use Australian English, the app now replaces “VAT” (Value-added Tax) with “GST” (Goods and Services Tax), which is how you call it over there. Just a reminder, the app defaults to Sales Tax as it’s used in the United States when it’s first installed, and you need to change its settings to use VAT (or GST in that case). See this blog post for details.
  • You can now send text reminders for contacts with a balance or credit on their accounts directly from the contact list screen. Tap on the text balloon icon by the account balance/credit as shown in the image below, and the app will open your message app with an auto-generated reminder ready to send. If there is no icon (as in the first contact in the screenshot below, that means the contact doesn’t have a primary phone number on their record so they can’t be texted).

  • We also added a button to the main schedule screen to switch between showing 1 or 2 weeks at a time. This gets a little crowded on a phone screen, but a quick switch back and forth is useful to see what’s coming up on the following week, and plan accordingly. See the screenshot below (tap/click to embiggen).

  • There are also a couple of fixes. We corrected the Daylight Saving Time handling when duplicating appointment, which would change the start and end times an hour up or down on the duplicate. Now that’s correctly accounted for. We also correctly translate the [unassigned] horse option (for entering invoice items that are not assigned to a specific horse) when the app using the other supported languages.

An update on the e-mail issue which was the focus of the previous release: some Android devices are still having problems attaching the PDFs, so I’m still working on a permanent solution that will work for everybody. There’s no rhyme or reason for this, even on two identical phones the attachments may work on one but not on the other, which is making this problem hard to track down and fix. I appreciate the patience from those still being inconvenienced by this. There’s a workaround for the issue, which is to just type a space anywhere in the message body of the e-mail before sending. That makes the phone send the attachments through.

As always, if you have any questions, issues or comments, please let us know via our support contact page.
