Easiest app to use for mileage and expenses

I really like Stride compared to the other apps out there. It tracks mileage well and instantly calculates your profit. I like the fact you can categorize by jobs, add photos of receipts, and other expenses all in one place. I would be willing to pay for a premium version. I’d like to see auto detect motion start and stop, similar to MileageIQ. That should be an option to turn on and off as desired, since sometimes I forget to turn it on. My biggest complaint however, is it is not easy to search for added expenses and update or make modifications. There are 2 columns “Deductions and Income”. If I need to search for the expense I have to scroll the entire list looking for it. I should be able to search “dash cam” for example and find every expense associated for that category. II’ll add to my review as I think of more improvements the developers can add.

The app erases mileage. On numerous occasions it shows mileage and money saved using the app then a few hours later shows a completely different amount that was less than what was shown a few hours before! It also logs imaginary mileage after I end my session and completely shut down the app by double tapping the home button and swiping up on the app. When I go to use the app the next day, it shows that it is tracking mileage, even though the night before I stopped tracking and properly shut the app down. It's like I have a magic iPhone that leaves my bedside table and turns the app on on its own and takes a journey. Apparently my iPhone can fly like Peter Pan because the map shows straight lines like it doesn't follow roads. Beware of this app. Especially if using it for tax purposes. If it can't even do the basic task of tracking mileage correctly, would you use stride for any other services they provide? Hey stride, how about getting the 1 thing down first before offering other services like finding health insurance! The only thing this app Strides for is failure!

Love the app. Its FREE

I have tried number of other mile-tracker apps some weren't FREE. This one is FREE. It doesn't ask for money at all. No ads except life insurance. Even the life insurance window doesn't bother you at all. This app (in my opinion) is very close to perfect. Missing only 2 things.

1st. As an Uber driver I want to be able to track my miles to deduct. So far this app does the job very well. No complaining about that. But I want to be able to track my maintenance/insurance/gas expenses too. At the end of a year I want to be able to see both result and get the most tax deduction.
This option would make the app PERFECT for a driver like me.

2nd. When I was trying number of mile tracker apps one future seemed very useful. Its mile log. If I could, I’d want to set a reminder that would ask me every morning (there can be more options to set the days you work/drive, everyday or Monday through Friday or select the days you work) if I want to LOG my mileage of the car. This data can be used as 2 step verification (double checking) for tracking my miles more accurately.

If these 2 features I mentioned were available within the app, I will definitely 100% change my 4star to 5star. I’d recommend this app to all my friends who drive for living.
