Attention iOS device users: your lives are about to become easier with the update we’re announcing today! You can now share photos from Apple devices with Expensify in just a few clicks.

Most of you might share your photos from your mobile via Instagram and other apps. Now you’ll see the Expensify app listed as one of the options to share your photos (receipts) as well. I know, big news!

To take advantage of this handy new feature you will need to follow the instructions below on your mobile phone:

  • Head to Photos
  • Select the photo(s) you’d like to send to your Expensify account,
  • Click on the upload icon on the lower left corner, and click on the Expensify app icon.

This will take you to the mobile app and an expense will automatically be SmartScanned and created! Heads up: you can share up to 10 photos at a time.

This new functionality also addresses user feedback, who wanted the ability to edit mages (cropping, flattening) before dropping them into Expensify.

Android users, please note that this feature has already been available on Android for some time now so if you weren't aware, grab your phone and start taking advantage of this feature as well!
