I’ve always been a big fan of Xero, the excellent web-based accounting and bookkeeping software for small businesses.

Now, Xero has an iPhone and iPad app designed just for freelancers and the self-employed in order to making taxes easier.

Xero TaxTouch is a new app that lets you categorize business expenses and track mileage through your phone; it then keeps you up to date on what your estimated taxes will be and automatically generates data for your Schedule C.
