Hassle free automatic mileage expense tracking
MileIQ App – Review
If you drive your own car for work and need to track the miles for expense reports, MileIQ app automatically tracks the miles and creates the report for you. MileIQ automatically detects the miles, calculates your mileage expense and makes the report, all for free (up to 40 drives per month).
When you hop in the car, the tracking automatically begins. You do not need to start/stop the app. The app uses sensors in the phone to automatically detect when you are driving.
When you finish a drive, a driving card appears in the app showing you the details of the trip – map, miles, potential earnings, date. Swipe right to classify the drive for business or left for personal. To associate a purpose for the drive, like customer visit or delivery, swipe slowly and hold. Then, tap to add the desired purpose. You can add purposes such as Customer Visit, Between Offices, Airport/Travel, etc. For personal drives you can classify them as Commute, Medical, Charity or Moving. You can also create custom drive categories for personal and business.
This is a “must have” app for business. It turns a tedious task into an efficient and accurate accounting process, saving you time and money.
You will save more time and money than it costs to track the expenses. The app is so well done, Microsoft purchased the company who makes it. Be sure and check out the $25.00 referral fee for sharing the app with your friends – see details below.
Automatically Name a Trip
You can even “define” drives to automatically have them labeled. For example, if you make the same trips to a customer’s office multiple times per month you can assign a name to that trip. The next time you drive to the location it will automatically be named. This defined trip shows up in your monthly reports.
Customize Work Driving Hours
If you work odd hours you can set the app to track your drives during your work schedule. You can set different work times for any day of the week. For example, if you make deliveries from 2 PM to 9 PM on Tuesdays’ and from 1 PM to 6 PM on Fridays, you can easily set the app to track drives during those specific hours.
Add Notes, Tolls, Parking Expense
You can also easily associate related costs, such as tolls or parking fees, to a drive. This keeps all of your drive expense notes and records in one place. In addition, there is an option for notes, allowing you to add any extra details you would like to make about the trip.
Auto Generated Reports for Work & Taxes
Monthly and annual reports are automatically generated that you can provide to the office. The reports are emailed for submitting to your office or for taxes. Tap on the month you want to see then, tap Send Report. You can view the reports as a pdf or download the data as a CSV (comma separated value) doc.
