Easy mileage tracking. Could offer more features.
Nifty replacement for a paper log. This app does the basics well and has some smart features like carrying the ending odometer for a trip into the beginning odometer for a new trip. I wish the app offered texts to remind me to set a missing ending odometer and, perhaps, do this by "knowing" when I've arrived home. Another good feature would be an error message if two trips in the same vehicle have overlapping odometer readings. Toward the end of 2014, the app started acting up--the odometer would blank out. Was it TMI at year end? I exported the spreadsheet and manually adjusted the missing trips.

Pretty good job with the app, but a couple of things would make it much more usable.
I've recommended to the creators (with no response) that they should rework the text color at the top of the screen to something other than dark blue on black. The "+" to add a new trip & save text are impossible to see in broad daylight or even in the shade inside your vehicle. White letters would be ideal.
Also, the option of landscape view would be nice.
The "this preset already exists" error is displayed when an address has already been entered. That's fine, but scrolling through a super long list of previous addresses is a hassle to be sure.
A realtime search feature would be nice or better yet, have the user input go ahead and populate even if there is a duplicate.
Overall, it does a pretty good job, but for full time business use it becomes a bit tedious to use.
With the changes mentioned, I'd change the rating from 3 to 5 stars.
Great app. I've been using this app for nearly 2 years now and it's helped me log my miles for my business with ease. Reporting is great for tax purposes and my CPA was even impressed with the organization of the reporting. I have one recommendation... When choosing the (origin, destination, and purpose) sections of logging, it would be great to have a search bar. Over time the lists have grown and it is very tedious to look for destinations and specific saved trips. Otherwise no other complaints.
