Meet the new iOS App for Zoho SubscriptionsThe iOS app for Zoho Subscriptions just got a major update, with features that can save you time and provide a better overall experience when using the app–which is essential when managing your subscription business on the move.

Create customers by taking pictures of business cards

Add new customers into Zoho Subscriptions straight from their business cards! Simply take a picture of a business card, and Zoho Subscriptions will grab the name, phone number, email address, website URL, and address from the card, and create a new customer with this information. Super useful when making on-the-spot deals.

Go easy on your eyes with dark mode

This one's been heavily requested. If you're on a device with iOS 13 or higher and have dark mode enabled in your system settings, Zoho Subscriptions will automatically switch to dark mode as well.

User interface that's in line with the other Zoho Finance apps

We've refined the app's UI and borrowed design cues from other Zoho Finance apps, like Zoho Books, to make the UI more aesthetically pleasing and clutter-free. If you've been using the app for a while, you'll notice improvements all around, including redesigned icons and new layouts for the Customers, Invoices, and Subscriptions modules.

New user? Step right in.

If you're a new user and don't have a Zoho account yet, you can now sign up for a free 14-day trial of Zoho Subscriptions using just Face ID or Touch ID. Zoho Subscriptions will use your Apple ID to sign you up–no forms to fill out. We've also added a new free plan for small businesses and startups, which you can switch to after your trial ends. If you're a larger business, you can switch to a paid plan of Zoho Subscriptions that suits your business needs. Download the app.

Edge detection for uploading documents

Uploading pictures of documents to Zoho Subscriptions, such as the terms and conditions or a contract between you and your customers, is easier than ever. Just point the app's built-in document scanner at a document and it will automatically capture an image, identify the document's edges, and crop the image for you. The app will then let you edit the cropped image for a final flourish, and your document will be ready to upload.
