The Occasional Bad Apple

Apple decided a few months ago that they were going to make fairly radical changes to their App Store. This would result in many thousands or millions of applications either ceasing to work or require a dramatic overhaul.

Our own, rather successful app has been thwarted by this issue and as a result the IT crowd that created the app for us have been working away behind the scenes to ensure that it doesn’t suffer from the bad apple syndrome. Sadly, we cannot keep our unique icon or button.

I am delighted to report that the new, all-singing, all-dancing (well, maybe not) app is ready for you to use. It remains free of charge to you and anyone that you suggest might be able to gain some benefit from it. You will need to delete the existing app on your smartphone or ipad, irrespective of whether you use the Apple IOS or Android platform.

Your Next Step

All you need do is head over to the appropriate place and download the new version. You will find an app called “My IFA” and you will be prompted to input a code… which is solomons. Any questions, please email us.

Why Bother?

The app is rammed with very useful calculators and details about tax deadlines, as well as the more important HMRC allowances and keyfacts. There’s a mileage tracker for drivers claiming allowances, a receipt log and… well frankly, just have a look and play with it. Importantly it enables us to contact you directly (and vice versa) with relevant information (not junk spam). This is called push notification and its something that we would like to use more effectively as most of us spend a lot of time with our mobile devices.

Anyway, enjoy our free gift, let us know what else you’d like added to it if you get the chance.
