I'm a consultant and take copious notes when working with a client. I also like to add screen shots into my notes so I can provide more value for clients who like a cheat sheet to help remember lessons we covered. I also take notes to document the work I've done for a client in the event of a dispute.
This app could become even more awesome if the Comments section were more accessible using landscape keyboard and allow multiple screen shots and images placed within the text. Simple markup to allow for bold or italicized text would be very handy!

Just a suggestion, but could you use Evernote's email feature and export your data from the app as an email that goes directly to Evernote? It's not automated, but it's something in you're not already doing that.
One work-around I've done is create a tag and filter for PAID. As clients make payments on different entries, I tag them as PAID and then from the list of entries I created a filter called Paid that includes the PAID tag. Hope that makes sense. I did the same thing with entries that are OWED and entries I need to finish my invoice and bill out. My "jobs" are actually "Clients" and individual entries are "sessions."
Hope this helps.
I use Square, Inc. to bill my clients and they collect a fee each time. It's different depending on the type of transaction. The way I use HoursTracker is each "Job" is actually a "Client." Each "Entry" is actually a "Session." Several of my clients are local and I go to their home to work with them so I'd like to be able to track mileage better. I don't charge per mile but I do charge a trip fee. I too would like to be able to create a report for my CPA to see if I should take the standard tax deduction or use my actual mileage come IRS filing time. I would also like to be able to track expenses better. I'm thinking about just creating a new "job" and call it "Expenses." I do not use the pay periods since my freelancing is so flexible. I hope these requests get implemented at some point. Seeing the years and date stamps on these posts is a little disconcerting. I think this app is awesome, but it can only get better!
I just noticed the dates on these requests. Are they still being monitored? 3 years later?
Am I missing something? There seems to be no iPad version. I looked for HoursTrackerHD in the App Store but see nothing. The iPhone app on the iPad looks silly.
I'd like it if there was a section in the Preferences where we could change the word "Jobs" to "Clients." My "jobs" list is actually clients and my "entries" are the *jobs* I do for each *client* - first name and last name. I am able to clock in and out using separate entries that way. I wish I could mark each entry (which is a job to me) as they are paid or group them because for many clients I run them a "tab" where little quickie phone calls and short sessions add up over time and then I add them all up together and send a totaled bill.
