Good app with good features
I've used MileBug for about a year. It allows me to track what clients I go to and add notes about the trip. It calculates either the number of miles or the beginning or ending mileage by simply filling in 2 of the 3 fields - beginning mileage, ending mileage, or # miles. It can track expenses but I have not found the need for that. I guess if I kept track of gas and repairs, that would be a good use of that feature. Customizable destination and origin codes allow me to put in my clients and description lets me know what the visit is for.
There is only one little glitch that I have found- you need to save after you enter your beginning mileage but before the end of your trip and sometimes I will open the app to go to my next client and my last trip will be open even though I finished the trip. If I don't hit save before I log my next trip, I will lose the previous trip. It's a little confusing to me but it may just be operator error. Anyway,I did a lot of research before I decided on this app and it has been a good tool for me. Exporting the data to Excel at the end of the year allows me to review and adjust missing entries before I go to submit my mileage for taxes.
I've used MileBug for about eight years now. I'm a Corp. Pastor for a large construction and grading company and I travel to all our job sites. I love this app because it makes my job keeping up with mileage and where I have been each day.
I save all my receipts each day in an envelope and at the end of each week I log them into a spread sheet. I line receipts in order by dates then open my MileBug app and scroll to the date on receipt and it tells me what job I was on that day.
This saves me tons of time trying to remember where I have been.
But the best part is at the end of the year in a few seconds I tap only a few keys add the year beginning and ending date and I have a spreadsheet for my taxes.
Works exactly as I expected and needed
I'm very pleased with this app. The fact that I can support multiple schedule Cs, as well as other deductions for charity, and track miles in multiple family or employer vehicles is precisely what I needed. There are other apps that start tracking as soon as you're moving but reviews indicate that stops along the way, even just in heavy traffic, sometimes break up a trip into separate ones. I do have to remember to start the trip, but I do it right after I set up mapping to get me there, anyway! I mostly just enter mileage manually, though, because there are places where GPS was not reliably capturing my trips.
