Can the FreeAgent Support team help me with any questions I have about using FreeAgent Mobile?
Absolutely! You can call or email the team or you can raise a support ticket from within the app itself. To do this, tap on ‘Customer Support’ at the bottom of the overview screen. This will create a draft email to firstname.lastname@example.org that's pre-populated with details of the mobile device you are using. All you have to do is enter the details of your query and send the email!.
Is FreeAgent Mobile for iOS and Android different to the mobile-friendly web version of FreeAgent?
Yes. For now, the mobile web version of FreeAgent has a more complete overview of your FreeAgent account and allows you to create and manage timeslips, bills, expenses, and contacts. The iOS and Android apps, on the other hand, currently allow you to create and manage invoices, expenses and contacts, and view and explain bank transactions, but we’re working on adding new functionality soon.
