Overall good a few minor feature additions would b super!
I love the idea of tracking my route via GPS but my first use was a bit confusing. I played around with it a while before using it to ensure I was using properly. My main complaint is that trips re all one way! If you could add the option to either double it for 2 way trips (required less gps and less battery) or at least give the option for a third destination instead of point A to point B. I get that some bill their clients but using for tax purposes I only need to mileage and locations for my records. I love the auto calculation with the mileage and the ability to backup by sending yourself an email. Will pay for additional features if they become released! One more thing that would be great is being able to add just the miles for those entering in later on. I'm trying to use this app but need to add 6 months of records so a feature to more easily add previous mileage records would be fantastic!
Great App, just one suggestion
I use this app every day to track my miles for work, medical appointments and my volunteer work. This app easily tracks each one separately, adds up the totals and with just a couple of clicks, sends the report at the end of the month to our finance guy.
The suggestion I have is to put the button to turn on the GPS tracking function at the top instead of at the bottom because I am easily distracted and still sometimes forget to click 'start tracking' after I have filled in the details of the trip so I get to my destination and find I have no mileage recorded. Thankfully I can go back and figure the mileage by some other means and add it manually, but that's a hassle. It would be much better to have the start tracking button at the start. I can more easily fill in other details later than the mileage.
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.
