It’s been a year since Sprout Apps earned it’s first 💵! Wow, what a journey.
That year (plus 1) brought 10 major releases of Sprout Invoices, Help Scout Desk, and the release of the v1.0 of Sprout Clients.
Here’s a look back at some of the most notable news:
July ’14: I started writing about Sprout Invoices with – What Sprout Invoices Sets To Solve, Sprout Invoices: Payments Options, Deposits, Checks and Authorizations, and Launch Status, Sprout Invoices Pricing, and Giving Back.
Aug. ’14: Sprout Invoices was unofficially released.
Oct. ’14: Major updates started rolling into Sprout Invoices with version 1.1 and it’s Multi-currency support.
Jan. ’15: Client Dashboards were added with the release of v4.0.
Feb. ’15: v5.0 was released with line item commenting and pre-defined items.
March ’15: Zapier, and Toggl integrations!
April ’15: A lot of new add-ons were released, including WooCommerce integration.
June ’15: I mentioned that I was going on a vacation, I think.
July ’15: Sprout Clients was released!
That leaves us with 12 days of August and Sprout Invoices 8.0 was just released with a major overhaul of line items, alongside some add-ons that will help those outside the U.S. with complicated invoicing requirements.
Exciting times are ahead and you can expect quite a few new add-ons for Sprout Invoices this month. Development for Sprout Clients v2.0 will be starting soon since the development requirements are now complete, expect a release late next month. 2
It feels like year two for Sprout Apps is already off to a great start and I’m totally humbled to be working on these products for you.
- Sprout Apps has been around just a little bit longer because development of Sprout Invoices started around June of 2014 and this site was created a month later so I could blog about it’s development and why Sprout Invoices has going to be awesome. ↩
- Yes, the schedule I setup before the summer has been broken; at least I tried. ↩
