About as simple as it gets!

I’ve been using this app for about 3 months now and, quite frankly, this is one of the best apps ever created. It works flawlessly and completely automatic in the background of your mobile device. It has logged every single drive I have made since I started using it. And the join feature works great to tie together all of those trips that have minor detours along the way to your destination like getting off the interstate to get gas or food or for an overnight stay. Couple that feature with the simple swipe left or right to categorize a drive as personal or business and this is just about the easiest, most effective app I have ever used period. Seriously, if you aren’t using MileIQ to track your business mileage, you need to start using today. Just make sure you’ve set-up all your data and vehicle info before taking your first drive. I suggest doing a test drive just to be sure it is capturing your drives automatically. When I first started, it missed a few initial trips because I did not have my vehicle information set-up completely. But once you are sure it is automatically capturing each drive, you are good to go. This app is about as perfect in form and function and usefulness as it gets. Try it today, you’ll wonder why you waited so long to use this app. Pure Genius!

Very helpful. Works as promised.

Super helpful for tracking mileage without having to remember to start it with the auto detection. I only wish you could delete drives from the app. You can only delete drives from the website version. I ride along with another party quite a bit and always forget to pause the auto detection when I start out. So I have to open the browser and delete the drive from the website instead of being able to delete from the app on my phone. I also wish you could adjust your end point on the map. A few times it didn’t track me all the way to my destination because I drive through a “dead” spot with no cell service. But other than those small complaints, I actually do love this app and and happy I purchased it. Makes getting organized for tax time simpler. And my accountant LOVES it. She is actually the one who recommended this to me. End of year it has a pdf breakdown of all your drives. This is priceless information. Also reminds you at the start of the year to document your mileage on your car to make sure everything matches up. Great app!

Good Luck

Missing several trips every day. I've used this for 17 months. I referred my friend who cancelled it immediately cause he paid close attention to his drives. I decided to check myself. Well, he was right. Not sure how many thousands of dollars I lost last year on taxes. Go back to pen and paper. Lazy will cost you big time. It says it tracks drives over half a mile. Well, I'm losing those half mile stops as well as many of them that are several miles. Just went through my drives and found 2 discrepancies within my first two hours of work."UPDATE" 9/5/17 Day two in a row. It shows a stop at 9:16am and the next starting point 10:38am about 20+ miles away. I made 3 stops between that time period. About 7 mile drives. I don't want to hear about being my phone service. If anyone in the world lost service for more than 8 seconds they'd pull over and freak out till it's fixed. Never mind 1.25 hours in the middle of town. If you make many stops like myself you can very simply check accuracy and making sure all your stopping points are also your next starting point. I don't ever make a big deal out of things, but at this rate I'm probably out about $7,500 worth of mileage last year and more this year. That's a big deal for anyone. I will continue this week and after every stop I will make sure I have a solid 5 bar internet connection before starting my drives. If there's a single day of accuracy I will update this again on Saturday this week.

Fire Protection Inspector

I am an inspector for a company that installs, designs & does inspections on fire suppression systems. I drive a lot, all day long from job to job, so mileage is a big part on the job. So far I have found the app great, though the frequent drives option doesn’t work that great and the work hours feature doesn’t allow you to edit those drives as it automatically logs them without any input on your part, which I do not like. Wish when it auto logs a drive, that it would still pop up and say “we just logged a business drive, is this correct? Would you like to add anything to this drive?” Same goes with a personal drive. Also, when in a drive from one job to the next or from the job to home, if you stop at a store or gas station, the app will stop that drive and when you start driving again it will start an entire new drive, I wish you had the option to continue the drive so therefore it would be logged together as one simple drive and not several different logs which you have to go back and calculate. I think if they fixed these minor issues this app would be top notch.

Missing Key Features

I really love the concept behind this app—the simplicity of swiping to classify miles. This is the first job I’ve had where I need to keep track of business miles and it can be daunting to do so each and every day. I thought Mile IQ was going to be a great solution, however I see 4 key problems that keep me from ever wanting to pay for the app. 1.) I cannot seem to find a way to view miles by DAY. I only see an option for monthly reports and my job requires that I record miles personal vs. business by the day. 2.) On top of that, I don’t want reports to be sent to my email. My life is busy enough. Do you think I want more emails? Isn’t that the whole purpose of Mile IQ is to save time..not add more to my plate? Why can’t you just view your mileage breakdown on the app? Finance apps like Mint allow you to break down your spending categories by day, so I know it’s not impossible or too complicated. 3.) When you try to view the maps for each drive, there are no business names or landmarks that show up. Sometimes I cannot remember where I went next and I would be counting on the map locations to tell me. 4.) 40 drives free is not very many at all. That seems extremely low. I think the app is a great idea..but it needs to be executed much better.

Chude’s Reviews

Currently downloaded 3 mileage and expense trackers (Mile IQ, Intuit (Turbo Tax Self Employed, and Taxbot). Like all 3, but when it comes to tracking mileage, Mile IQ clearly outshines the rest. As a result of the clean interface, user-friendly experience, and the fact that it remembers your drives if you name your location. Also, unlike the “Self-Employed app by Intuit/Turbo Tax, when it comes to drives, Mile IQ catches the drives on the same day. I currently just classified my 13 Mile IQ drives for the day, and Turbo Tax’s app has yet to post 1 drive for the day (not to mention will miss some drives). Tax Bot is better about catching drives, but doesn’t have as clean as an Interface/UE (User Experience), and, only shows start time and not end time (in my profession, knowing what time one arrives at a location is very important, and can make the difference between hefty fines/jail time, and making a good living. So, although Mike IQ doesn’t allow one to keep track of expenses, for the cheaper price than the other apps I’m using, and the more proficient ability to capture drives and cleaner interface, I definitely recommend MileIQ!

Generally great, but with flaws

Love how this app collects info on drives automatically, then classifying those trips into the most generic “business” heading is pretty easy, and generally pretty accurate. Issues though: In the app there is no longer a way to join drives (someone put the AutoClassify button in front of the Join Drives button—beta testing anyone?) you have to go to the website. Also, I when I delete drives (I’m only tracking business mileage, not my whole life) I have to say why. Every...single...time. Plus, there seems to be no way to differentiate different types of business drives (e.g. errands vs deliveries) unless you go (again) to the website. The website should be for advanced reporting activities, not for super basic trip categorization stuff. Otherwise would have been 4-5 stars... Missing feature: I go to customers both to check inventory AND to make deliveries (business), and also to shop (personal). Therefore, “auto classify“ is useless to me if I want to differentiate the two business activities, and not count the personal miles to the same location . It would become useful to me if I could identify the two (or three) reasons I go to places, MileIQ could come to me when it recognizes a similar trip for me to identify which reason I’ve gone there...

I had an issue, and no one could help me!

My issue was, mile IQ stop recording my drives, and I couldn't figure out why, and then I remembered after they told me that they couldn't help me and they needed more information. I remembered my iPhone asked me if I wanted MileIQ to continue to run in the background, and it gave me two options one was always, and the one was, only while using the app, and I think without thinking I put only while using the app, so I missed two days of Business drives. I think that day my phone kept asking me this, and that is running in the background do you want to do this or do that, and I got fed up and just said only while using the app and everything that popped up that's what I put. So if you are using MileIQ make sure you put always so that you don't have to keep the app open, and it will still record all your drives. You can do this by going to your settings under MileIQ, and highlight always!

Could more TAX friendly

Love the app and it records my drives fairly accurately. Sometimes when I come home from work and stop at the house for less than five minutes to change into my gym clothes .... it will record my travel from work to home and then from home to the gym as one trip. I simply make a note of that so that I can reconcile it later. From a tax perspective, if you were taking “actual expenses” instead of “mileage” as your deduction.... you need to know the percentage of business miles out of all of your vehicle mileage. The app doesn’t calculate this automatically for you. The circle graph the app displays just simply gives you business trips versus personal trips. This is useless data from a tax deduction perspective. If you are going to take “actual expenses” as a deduction on your taxes the calculation is...total vehicle expenses multiplied by percent business miles traveled. The app makes you calculate that percentage from data presented on a spreadsheet on your own which is inconvenient and possibly cumbersome in some circumstances. I wish the developers would have sought the advice of some expert Tax Attorneys in the development of the app.

Almost perfect

Mile IQ really is fantastic. It does a great job at tracking mileage and running in the background while not draining your battery. Although this app works really well I would like to see three additions. 1) Job tracking: the ability to assign drives to specific jobs not tasks. For a construction company it doesn’t really work to track mileage for specific jobs. This is more of a broad spectrum tracker. 2) Delete or Remove Drives: I’m yet to find the ability to delete a drive. I went to a consult with another contractor and left Mile IQ running in the background. Like it is suppose to it tracked our trip and drives. The only option I had at that point was to classify those drives as personal. Not a big deal because I’m not concerned with personal miles but if someone was there isn’t any way to adjust. 3) the ability to link drives: Mile IQ will automatically link certain drives and sometimes create round trip drives. The ability to manually link drives would be fantastic as well. Over all it’s the best I’ve found so far and I’ve already recouped the cost of the 1year subscription within my first 40 drives.

Seems to work, but...

It seems to work and the interface is easy. I like to App’s ability to learn and auto classify frequent drives. However, much like a previous user’s review, I too am seeing a discrepancy in the accuracy and missing drives. The locations it identifies are not always accurate which makes it difficult to identify the actual location where the software picked up the Start or End of a drive. This a serious credibility issue. My second complaint is the inability to categorize personal charity drives. I work with different charities MileIQ prohibits assigning a deductible $ amount for separate charity. The user can create a separate listing for each charity, but is not allowed to assign the mileage rate. Even though the total mileage is tallied, the user must do the math manually at the end of each month or at the end of the year. But isn’t that the point of the having the App do the work? I do a lot of charity work and the App forces all charities to be grouped under the title of “Charity” if the user wants automatic mileage calculations for IRS Tax purposes. I have discussed this with customer support several times and they don’t appear to care. Makes me wonder if they actually understand how it works in the real world of small business and tax codes.

Sufficient But missing a few important things

This app is automatic once you set it up. Which is great because when I do business trip type drive I typically forget about setting my mileage at the start of the trip. This app just does it for you. That being said, you can also categorize your trips as personal and that is great but I don’t care about my personal drives and so this app DOES NOT give you the option to delete a drive you don’t want included. In addition the app itself does not show the running total of you mileage broken down by drive purpose. Only as business and personal combined. You have to crest the report summary to get that breakdown. A bit of a nuance. The information is there just have to get the statement vs the app just telling you. You also have a some max amount of drives you can do before you have to upgrade to the paid version at $5.99. A bit excessive unless you drive a lot and worth it at tax time. Overall it is a decent app but the two features above are important to me so I may look at other mileage apps

Good automatic tracking but not accurate routes

This app is great because it’s simple and easy to navigate but the routes are not accurate. This could be a better app if this problem was fixed so here it goes...Half of the time the app doesn’t accurately track the start and stop destination and the routes. I drove this route but the app says I drove a different route (which was a longer route too). Then I made this short stop at a store but the app shows that I only drove in the area along with the different route from what I actually drove (instead of recording that as an individual route like I expected it to, that route was automatically connected to my next route and it became one individual route altogether). Not only that but in one of my routes, the app completely disregarded a stop I made and my route, according to the app, didn’t event go anywhere near that stop, it stopped midway then changed course. Overall, I’m still going to use this app, but if these small details were fixed this would really be the top mileage tracker. Thanks!

If you’re looking for less work, this may not be it

My boss said use it, so I am. We were still logging miles on paper. Service company where my home is my office, start and stop point for the day. I know the mileage to most of my customers and this app is accurate about half the time. If you make a detour stop along the way, make sure the app knows. I went out of my way to pick up parts and then to the customer site. MileIQ listed the direct mileage of 37 from home to the customer, when I actually drove 58 miles. I had to delete the trip and create two new ones to even get close. It does not seem to use the gps during the trip, it just seems to record the location when you stop for more than a few minutes. So it might see you stopped for a long train, but you could go 50 miles out of your way for coffee and the extra miles might never be recorded. Also, something weird happened yesterday. I went to a customer in the city, then to one in the suburbs. MileIQ said I stopped on the freeway several miles outside downtown and then turned around a few hours later and went from the same location on the freeway to the second customer.

App thinks I have a teleporter

I’ve been using the app for a while and have developed a strong dislike for it. A hatred really. Breaks up trips into multiple smaller ones if you pull over for a moment, very very inaccurate mileage tracking. I usually end up with about a 20% loss of my actual mileage. I track manually with a notebook, trip odometers and other apps. Everything lines up except the mileage from this app. Sometimes trips aren’t even tracked or logged. Very hard to manage, view, organize and delete trips once they’ve been logged. If I want to delete a bunch of trips I have to go and delete each one individually. I don’t need a record of 50 1.3 mile personal trips. Pay for a clunky, inaccurate app? You crazy? Where is all the money going from paid subscriptions if not into making the app work decently? Very strange. Strange that free apps are excellent and this one I kind of wish I never even downloaded and wasted my time and money with. Also, don’t respond asking me to contact the support team to work out the issues. I don’t work for you and you wouldn’t be willing to pay me for my time helping you solve these problems. Just look at all of the other mileage apps that work and do something like that.

As User-Friendly As It Gets

I absolutely LOVE this app!! MikeIQ makes it SO easy to classify and keep track of the miles you drive for business so there’s no headache figuring out your mileage at tax time every April. It breaks down your drives by month and creates a year-end report for you as well. MileIQ also allows you to create your own sub-classifications for your drives (i.e. Business meeting with customers, medical appointments, office supplies, kid’s sporting events, school drop off/pick ups, etc.) and since the IRS assigns different deduction amounts per mile based upon the drive (drive for client meeting vs. medical appointment have different rates per mile with the IRS), there really is no way to screw up your tax deductions. This app is a lifesaver and one less business expense deduction hassle I have to calculate and keep track of myself each year. I absolutely recommend this app to anyone in need of keeping track of the miles you put on your car/driven every month for tax related purposes. Easily 5 Stars!!

Good app

I do like the app. I use it to track all my business vs personal miles. I do have one critique so I’m writing this review so that hopefully the developer sees it and can do something about it. Once you’ve categorized a drive as either business or personal, you can no longer delete it. Yes, you can correct and switch from personal to business or vice verse, but if you accidentally label one, for example as personal, then realize your mistake, say it was a rental car, for example, you can’t go delete it. So now my percentage of personal vs business mileage is messed up. The app literally just gave me the option to categorize a run I went on as personal or business. Sadly, I can’t run as fast as i drive, so you’d think the app would be smart enough to realize that my 8 MPH run for 3 miles is not a trip in a car. But without thinking about it, I categorized my jog as a personal trip in my car. And now i can’t delete it.

I have been using mileage IQ for about seven months. I started working for a company that had promised me a Company car as part of my position. The company had a policy of not paying any of their employees for personal use of their vehicles. But, because mileage IQ is so professional, accurate and detailed, I've been able to get paid for all my business mileage over the last seven months. I simply told them that this will be temporary until I receive my company vehicle that they promised. After talking with other employees I realize that I would never get a company vehicle. If you work for a company that wants to cheat you on your mileage, you can simply keep this documentation until you leave the company. This will stand up in court and you can file a small claims lawsuit for $150. With this type of documentation your case will be a slamdunk in court. Enjoy suing your x-employer with the help of mileage IQ.!!!

Be careful not to turn off the app

Today I went to print out my yearly report and found that a whole month was missing. This is my second year using the app and I’ve never found data gaps before. I contacted customer support and was told that if the app is closed by swiping it stops running and no data is collected. I find this explanation hard to believe as I swipe apps closed all the time, including this one, and have never found large gaps in the data for this app. But the customer service person insisted that I had closed the app and turned it off. This makes no sense, but the bottom line is I lost a month of data and it’s not coming back. And the attitude of customer service was just so unfriendly. In looking for a way to find this data I did look at the settings for the first time and found that I could turn on routes—something I always wished was available. I hope this will make this app more helpful as I often cannot determine what a drive is from the info given. So that was a positive. But having a tracking app that is so easily deactivated? Not helpful.

Wish it was more accurate ...

The developers of this app have done a lot of things well, nice features, user interface, and I really like the monthly reports. However, like others have reported, I also have noticed a problem with the drive autodetection feature missing drives which is the most critical function of the app. I have requested that they add a manual mode to allow driver to initiate start and stop points to help deal with this issue but not sure they will add this. For me, the app will miss my first drive of day almost 100% of the time and sometimes miss short intermediate destinations. This is a problem for maintaining accurate tax records. What’s strange is that they include a setting to disable automatic drive detection but in the disabled state, there’s no way to manually initiate a drive. Why they have this setting is a mystery to me since the app doesn’t work if drive detection is set to off. Such a nicely designed app with this huge critical flaw is sad. I have already reported this to the developers so no need to reply with that suggestion. Let me know when you add a manual mode. Thanks.

Stops working if you don’t allow it to constantly track you

Unless you allow it to track your phone all day every day, on the (always) option in settings. It will stop working and will not even let you look back on your past months. What’s the point of all the time I wasted inputting my miles if I can’t even go back to see how many miles I put in that month? So useless and was a complete waste of my time. I wish I would’ve known sooner so I could just track them myself or find a different app. Now I have no idea of how many miles I put in and have to spend hours going back to check somehow. Also one random day it stopped letting me input the address I always use. It just didn’t show up therefore I couldn’t even add them for the app to calculate. I had to write my city name on both start and end and then calculate myself how many miles I was going so that I could write it in my description for later manual calculation. At that point I should have just stopped using the app and calculated myself in my spreadsheet. Now I can’t even see those descriptions because I can’t see the past months in its entirety. Super super frustrating.

Not overly thrilled

For some reason this app on my iPhone 6 incorrectly interprets stopping at a long traffic light as the end of a trip. That can get frustrating after a while as I try to figure out what the purpose of the trip was when it shows me completing a journey at a completely random location than what the actual destination was. Also, I have found that after completing a trip, the app doesn’t record the journey right away. It takes some time before it actually shows up on the app as a trip. So after a day or so i end up wondering “now what was the purpose for my driving to that locality in town?” It would be nice if there could be more specific pinpointing of the actual ending point rather than a marker near a particular road where it said I ended my trip. More often than not, the ending marker is put on a blank tan space near a road. Not sure if it can get more gps specific. I do like the fact that I can customize the purposes for either the business or personal travels I make.

Recently switched over from another app

I had been using two other apps, but one was really buggy, and the other was just a basic back-up plan with no fancy features to catch all the drives that the primary one was missing. I don't know if I can say the name here, but I had been trying to use MileCatcher and it was so inconsistent; it would start tracking my drives several miles in to the trip. Then it would go weeks without even being able to open. When I finally was able to open, all my drives were lost. So I signed up for the free trial with this one and decide to purchase the monthly subscription. So far it works way better, is consistent and reliable, and super easy to use. I deleted the buggy app, and got the drive logs exported from that back-up, so I can delete that one now too. great program! 👍
