Tax time simplified
I have been using this app everyday for over 3 years and love it! After learning the interface, it only takes a quick second to log your mileage. And the mileage reports make tax time easier!
Also, to address things I've seen in other reviews, you can modify how the app works within its Settings tab, including using km instead of miles, changing/adding reimbursement rates for miles or km, adding different "businesses" including a "Personal" category, along with several other customization features. Also, I have had no issues in contacting the developer to notify them of bugs and to request app enhancements (i.e. sorting favorite trips which is fixed with this upgrade). Lastly, the app makes it pretty easy to backup your data within the app. Yes, it's a manual thing, but only takes a quick second and is super simple. This app really is the most useful, versatile, and user friendly mileage and expense tracking app out there.
My main request is that the app have a unified list of destinations regardless of the business type. Also, when switching business type, use the previous destination as your starting destination. Integrating the mileage data with Quickbooks would be a nice feature. Also, an automatic cloud-based backup option would cool (Dropbox?) instead of the manual backup. Missing these are why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. These upgrades will make the best mileage app even better!!
Good, but should be better
I've been using this app for years, and it was great for keeping track of various categories of miles, and the reports are great. However, last year I started traveling a LOT more for work and it could be made better for frequent users. Instead of a scrolling date choice, I would much rather prefer an option of a calendar interface. If I forgot a date a month ago, it would be much faster to use a calendar instead of scrolling. Second, I would like to be able to re-order my favorite trips. My current and most frequent trip is at the bottom and I have to scroll each time I want to select it. If these get fixed, it will be worth 6 stars!!!
Very useful for the price
Nothing's perfect, but this little app comes close. Quick and easy to set up and use, and simple to download data and backups. I used to use TripCaddy but that has been overhauled into an entirely new app that some report won't accept old data, so I moved to this one. No regrets!
Only ding is I'd like to see an auto-backup instead of manual, to help when I forget and to stop the periodic helpful but annoying reminders. It would also be nice to remove or resort the main destination/purpose etc bars - I don't use all of them, and would love to eliminate the ones I don't need. I am happy to see some of the features previous reviewers have requested have been implemented - rare to see such a responsive company!
