VehiCal - Car Expense Management
By Red Cube
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
VehiCal makes it easy to record and manage vehicle mileage and expenses for personal and business use. Track fuel consumption information, including fuel economy, gas prices, and pump totals, as well as vehicle expenses with customizable lists such as repairs, highway tolls, and parking costs. This provides you with comprehensive information of your vehicle's operational costs and can help you keep tabs on fuel efficiency and keeping your vehicle well maintained. VehiCal's flexible calculations give you a controlled view of your vehicles fuel consumption which is increasingly important as fuel costs continue to rise.
Maximize potential tax reductions by keeping convenient records of business and personal trip mileage with customizable categories and notes. Email yourself and your accountant selected entries of your choosing based on date, type, cost, etc. in HTML or CSV (text) formats. The CSV format option can be used in all spreadsheet applications while the HTML format option provides a rich table of your selected data.
VehiCal's interactive lists allow you to sort data by touching column headers and select which entries to include in your calculations by using the calculation bar. Sort and select entries by specific dates or categories giving you a touchable spread sheet in the palm of your hand. Track fuel economy information on pump entries of your choosing so that results aren't skewed if you forget to input an entry. Supports all relevant unit conversions in real time so unit settings can be changed on the fly. Experience VehiCal's innovative design today!

What's New in Version 1.0.7
Fixed an issue related to total calculations being partially obscured by the tab bar.
When I first loaded this app I thought it was very good and would have given it 4 or 5 stars.
After using it for a few years I've noticed it is becoming more difficult to work with. You can set up several categories which is good. But if you want to select only data from one you must go through each entry to make sure you have the ones you want. OK it's time consuming. The latest problem is that the email function does not work. Also I tried to email the developer to ask for help and received a message stating fatale error. Very dissatisfied and am looking for a better app. Won't hurt this developer as they already have my money. Knowing what I know now I would not have bought this app.
Out of date
This used to be my favorite app for tracking my vehicle expenses but it seems they stopped updating it back in 2009. If you have a newer iPhone I don't suggest you use this app. It definitely doesn't work as well with iOS 10 on my iPhone 6+🙁. I wasn't able to upload a photo of my car as I had in the past and I really liked that feature. I did find an alternative app but the only thing it doesn't do that I loved about this app was show whether the price went up or down with each refuel.
I have used this app for many years, suggest users play with it to make it more useful. I only recently learned how to use it efficiently. (Old slow learner)
I think there is one error in ACCTS vehicle summary page, that is the total trip does not relate to the reported gas usage indicated in the summary above. The total trip it shows is the last trip data entered. I want to know actual (open ended) trip to date total relating to the gas etc reported. I want repairs for same Mileage report. In other words all the green buttons should relate to the same time or mileage period.
I would also appreciate being able to upload data to a spreadsheet if desired.
Fix the total problem and I am a five star supporter.
