Mileage Tracking Apps For iPhone
Whether you're traveling for business, charity work, or pleasure, it can be helpful to track your mileage, especially when tax season rolls around. If you are like me, your iPhone is always with you and can be a great tool for keeping mileage records. The following AppGuide will help you decide which mileage app will occupy your home screen.
MileIQ - Mile Tracker & Mileage Log for Tax Deduction
MileIQ is the gold standard when it comes to tracking mileage. This app comes equipped with all of the bells and whistles, such as smart-drive technology which automatically logs your drive and calculates that drive's value. Classify all of your trips easily and save your drive data in the cloud to access it on a different device if needed. You can even export your data for filing purposes. The app sports a nifty and sharp interface, which is an added bonus. MileIQ allows you to track 40 drives free of charge each month, but if you need to track more, there are subscription services available.
TaxMileage - Track Electronically your Business Trip by GPS, produces a Mile Log for IRS Deduction and Expense Reimbursement report
TaxMileage also comes with bells and whistles like MileIQ, minus the automatic drive logging. That doesn't mean that you should dismiss this app, though. Some people prefer to track their mileage manually instead of relying on an app. If that sounds like you, then this is the essential app you'll want.
MileBug - Mileage Log & Expense Tracker for Tax Deduction
MileBug is a functional app that does everything it's supposed to. It isn't as fancy as the essential apps, but still gets the job done. Track your miles for multiple businesses and drivers easily within the app. When it's time to report, the app will email you the data in html in the body of the email or as an attached file. Last, but not least, this app will have you feeling secure, knowing that your logs are stored in the cloud in case you lose your device or acquire a new one.
TrackMyDrive - Mileage Tracker & Auto Mileage Log & Business Reimbursement
TrackMyDrive is another app that showcases an automatic mileage tracking feature. It offers virtually the same things that MileIQ does, it's just not as pretty.
TripLog - GPS Mileage Log Tracker
TripLog includes a lot of features similar to most of the apps in this category. It is nicely packaged and and there are a ton of in-app purchases so that you can tailor this app to your specific mile tracking needs.
MileTracker - Mileage Tracker and Reporting
MileTracker is another notable app in this category that'll keep your mileage tracking organized. Track your fueling, toll expenses, and parking expenses on top of tracking your mileage and distinguish between your personal and business entries. With MileTracker you can also decide on whether you'd like to track your mileage live via GPS or enter it manually.
Auto Miles - Automatic Mileage Log and Mile Tracker
Auto Miles is a gorgeous app when it comes to aesthetics, probably one of the best looking ones in the bunch. It offers automatic mileage tracker, which is great, but tends to have occasional hiccups where it never starts tracking trips. Sadly, this is could propose a big issue so we are going to deem this app merely decent until this issue is resolved.
Shoeboxed Receipt and Mileage Tracker
Showboxed Receipt and Mileage Tracker will definitely track your miles, but lacks all the features that other apps in this category include. It is, however, also an expense tracker so if there are other things you'd like to keep track of, then this may be the app for you.
