From the creators of Shoeboxed.com comes a new app for your iPhone or iPod touch that could make your life way more organized.

Available for free, Shoeboxed digitalizes your receipts and lets you generate an expense report all on your phone. Shoeboxed is a great app for anyone who needs to keep better track of their own expenses, or needs to submit expenses for work.

By using the camera on your phone, Shoeboxed takes a picture of your receipt and achieves it for later review. One function that makes this app easy to use is the snap feature, which helps to center the information on your screen. This makes review really easy by showing the cost, method of payment, date, and category of expense in an way that’s easy to read.

After achieving your receipt, you can use the Shoeboxed app to create an expense report. The expense report can later be sent or downloaded onto your computer. Shoeboxed works with programs like Quickbooks and Quicken to help keep track of your expenses and budget. Best of all, the Shoeboxed digital receipts are accepted by the IRS, making tax time a breeze. The only thing that might keep you from getting Shoeboxed is that you need to have version 3.0 on your iPhone to download it. Luckily, the update is available free from Apple, so you might as well get it.

If you get this app, next time you wont have the bring the accountant an actual shoebox full of receipts.
