Faulty product — terrible support
by MrUnderstanding on 2020/07/05 00:27
For an undetermined reason after over a year of functioning normally, the tracker stopped detecting drives. I didn’t notice for a week because I haven’t been driving as much during lockdown. I began reaching out for help from customer service and two weeks later we are going in circles. They’ve said that they are reaching out to engineering for more assistance, but they’ve said that before and we get no closer to the issue. They keep telling me to just “input my drives manually until then.” Well, that’s what u thought I was paying them to do. I’ve repeated asked for a credit for my inconvenience in having to do so, and they keep ignoring my request. There’s nothing worse than dealing with support that only deals in form letters. It’s like you’re talking to no one.
Easy to use
by Sagidece87 on 2020/07/04 18:28
This is and great app to use to keep up with mileage. It records without effort and all you have to do is properly classify the drives. Exactly what I need for my tax deductions.
by Cre guru on 2020/07/04 13:53
Great tracking appp. Highly recommend
Miles not tracked
by deelghtfll on 2020/07/04 11:23
When I first downloaded the app I never had any issues, but lately I’ve had to uninstall and reinstall the app due to it not tracking my miles. This is the only inconvenience I’ve ever experienced with this app.
Good app
by Pooponthedevil on 2020/07/04 03:45
This app really good for tracking mileage. For my wish list to improve the app, I wish it had an option to combine separate trips. When I am driving to a facility and stop for gas, a snack, or the restroom, the app stops the trip. If there were a way to force the app to continue or pause, then unpause so the entire drive is shown as one trip, that would be great. Other than that, I am a happy driver thus far with this app...
Always Happy with This App Until ...
by platinumexec on 2020/07/03 23:41
The last Apple iPhone update in June seems to have broken this app. It no longer automatically logs your drives. Microsoft support told me to delete the app and reinstall it. It did not work. I don’t know who’s fault it is, but I as the customer left without a working app.
Wish it was more accurate ...
by rangernine on 2020/07/03 17:02
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.
Freezes up tech support no help
by bob7745 on 2020/07/03 01:24
I bought this to record mileage for my job it works pretty well and can figure out where you’re traveling and keeping track of your mileage the problem is on my iPhone it locks up in it I can’t even log into my MileIQ account from the iPhone I called tech-support they are completely useless so I would not recommend spending the extra money for the premium on this product
Something changed
by PhinDorsal on 2020/06/30 05:29
This app was perfect. It never missed a trip. It was dead on accurate and then something happened. Around the first of the year I noticed it started missing drives. This last week it missed two entire days. Today it missed my drive home. I’ve changed nothing. Same truck, same routes, same connections, same phone, same cell provider. I paid for it for years, but that is coming to an end.
Free app only logs 40 drives
by Mandala main on 2020/06/29 15:10
Should be able to log 40 business drives. Instead I’ve logged 35 personal. Wish I could just delegate those.
Missing drives
by GeeChee7 on 2020/06/28 15:16
I like the app and have used it for a couple of years.However, I just realize that it’s not picking up all my dries! Just this week alone is missed four days worth of driving. I do not have all the information nor the time to input manually four days worth of drives it’s crazy.
Very poor accuracy
by WorldCupFevaaaaah on 2020/06/27 20:49
I think the only thing I need this app to do is track my mileage accurately. However, for the past year it has not tracked a single trip correctly. It is always overestimating the mileage. So, I may have driven 12 miles, but the app says I drove 22.5 miles. I have it on all the time and I let it auto-start and stop. I’ve checked all the settings and now I just think it’s buggy and not worth the $. Too bad. I was really hoping it would be great.
No longer works
by Anthony Gauna on 2020/06/26 23:16
I’ve been using this app for many, many years and it’s been flawless. I’ve told many people about. But as of the month of June 2020, it stopped tracking drives all together. I keep it updated and keep my iOS updated. I’ve even forced quit it to restart it, restarted my iPhone, and have re-installed the app. It still does not work. If it’s not fixed by July, I’m looking for a reliable mileage tracking app.
Used for RE business
by rural realtor 216 on 2020/06/26 13:38
I use this for my business. It works well even in rural areas with little to no cell service. Fantastic. The only thing I would like to see improved is joining drives. It is difficult. So generally I have to input my notes for a string of drives over and over. Other than that I love the app!
Love it !
by black diamond 71 on 2020/06/26 05:34
Makes logging simple and easy !
Missing drives, stopping drives at random locations, and groups random drives together
by Western princess86 on 2020/06/26 02:43
At first this app was easy to use. However, as I started working on tax prep and double checking drives/mileage I realized that many of my trips are either missing altogether or grouped into 1 trip. Also noticed that other drives are ended at random intersections or locations. This app caused Lots of extra work of fixing errors. Time to invest in a different mileage tracker!
Stopped working, bad support
by Andrewbootlegger on 2020/06/25 18:37
App was working well. They made a lot of improvements and, all of a sudden, in early June 2020 it stopped detecting drives. Support has stopped emailing me back after telling me to verify settings (which were correct) and reinstalling the app. Support then told me I can still manually log drives! That devalues the product well below the $5/mo I pay. I’ll be canceling my subscription.
App not loading
by Jayhafernie1234 on 2020/06/24 19:12
I loved the free trial of the app and decided to get the unlimited package, right after i pay the app stops working?!! Please fix this

What a great product! I have traveled for years and dreamed of having a tool like this. If traveling is part of your job, you will love it!!
No longer works
by jtjohnson77 on 2020/06/24 10:14
Had the app for a few years and loved it. A few months ago it completely stopped functioning. I followed advice of tech support. It worked again for a week. Then nothing. Occasionally picks up (or makes up) a random drive to an incorrect location at a grossly inaccurate time. Time to look for another app.
It barley works
by adagirl88 on 2020/06/24 03:22
I have to do a work around to open the app. I sign in and have the back out go back In. Now it freezes when I am in and I cannot edit the drives. It is very frustrating and a pain to use this app!
Like the app - NOT ANY MORE
by pmandel on 2020/06/22 14:21
UPDATE Jun-2020 Ever since the latest iOS update, the app has been completely useless. I have followed every single one of their suggestions, I submitted a help ticket, and all they do is make the same suggestions over and over even though I have already told them I am following them to the letter. Location services always on, background app refresh, I keep the app running in the background, etc. Still, it is completely useless. Does not log my drives except the rare times when it does (perhaps one out of 10 drives), it shows either the wrong origin or wrong destination, completely wrong time of day, and ridiculous time enroute. For example, 8 miles in five minutes. The drive was at least 20 minutes long, possibly 25. I intend to request a full refund, or demand it if necessary, and find another app to work with. Don’t waste your time with this piece of junk, go elsewhere. Run, don’t walk. You’ve been warned. Using this app for six months at this point. Works great, integrates well with their website. Only feature I wish the app would do is to allow me to edit drives that I have already categorized. Categorized drives can be edited on the website but not on the app. Other than that, it’s a good app.
Drive detection doesn’t work
by Vladivostok125 on 2020/06/22 05:58
a couple of times I had to uninstall the application and reinstall it, because the application does not work, a lot of money is lost. but they don’t forget to charge a fee for the application every time
Great App
by Condos etc on 2020/06/22 05:33
I am amazed at how few of these kinds of apps are available. This is a great tracking app - only negative is that it doesn’t always track miles and tracks miles when riding with someone else. Definitely a great tracking tool and the best out there.
Great mileage tracking app
by Ljubes on 2020/06/21 12:44
It does an excellent job in tracking your mileage. It makes it easy to sort personal from business travel. You can create reports from their website to be included in expense reports. It adds legitimacy to them. It also provides the allowed rate from the IRS. They have a very responsive customer service staff if an issue should happen during usage of the app.
Worth the money
by Ninjastyle<3 on 2020/06/19 03:51
Frat app worth the money you pay and very easy to use
by Chrissy@subway on 2020/06/18 19:45
Love this APP! User friendly and easy to use. Great for tracking my business and personal miles. Definitely recommend
by JJAJ2014 on 2020/06/18 14:35
I enjoy the app however I wish it was a little bit more precise. It taken a bit to catch on to how it works. I am not tech savvy.
Good app
by Robobob0987 on 2020/06/18 10:57
A good and easy to use milage tracking app. Only complaint is summary needs to show both personal and business miles
It is great, but it works like a teenager, when it wants to
by Jon Sig on 2020/06/18 03:52
Overall it has found most of my drives and made categorizing them easy. But... it is far from failsafe. It has just stopped recording drives a few times and the only way to fix it has been to uninstall and start over. It has missed more than a few drives. Okay I guess when you are running to the store, not okay when you drove 45 miles each way to meet a client. Neither is okay actually as your mileage log is hogwash. It sometimes categorizes walks as drives... I think I walk quick, but my even my sprint isn’t drive like... I’ve decided to try some other similar apps. If they can’t get things straight maybe I’ll be back, maybe I’ll go back to paper. Oh how the idea of a swipe right or left to track miles was a great idea.
Stopped working this month
by Funkytreetown on 2020/06/18 02:37
This has ceased working for no reason. If you have to manually enter your rides the point of this app is pointless. And 2 weeks later “support” has offered none. Support has been non existent.
Was working
by KKlingbeil on 2020/06/18 01:31
As others have recently reported, I too have had problems since May not recording any drives. Was told to uninstall and then reinstall. Still not working. Up until this May it has been working great but now nothing.
Makes Life Easy
by jeremiah the bulfrog on 2020/06/18 01:01
I have to turn in miles for work to get reimbursed. This makes life SO EASY. Especially auto categorizing rides from regular locations.
Misses many drives
by 462936&*#;-'fhwu on 2020/06/17 17:37
The last 3 weeks the app has missed many drives and cost me quite a bit of money in reimbursement. Until this gets resolved I wold not recommend this application.
Best App I Own
by shuzeby on 2020/06/17 12:58
Use this everyday to track business mileage. Super easy format of swipe left or swipe right for each trip.
The absolutely best
by themilepres on 2020/06/17 00:58
Hands-down this is the best mileage recording app there is out there!
by Mr. Torrs on 2020/06/17 00:04
Very intuitive and easy to use, simplified mileage logs excellently.
by Lauren'sReview's2 on 2020/06/16 21:28
I have used this app since 2018 with out a problem but since mid May/early June my whole office has had problems with the app not recording drives. There only suggestion is to uninstall and re install the app. Now I am out 100s of dollars and no solution.
Great App
by qwighdjos d ds on 2020/06/16 20:38
I’m a mobile notary so I’m glad how my miles are logged without me keeping track of that tedious task.
Good at first
by lifeaquatic on 2020/06/16 10:35
At first the app was great but now it’s not even picking up most of my drives now so pretty much useless and a waste of money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
by Phunky b on 2020/06/15 20:57
It has helped me so much in capturing my mileages for taxes!
Must have for taxes!
by P2W Mitigation on 2020/06/15 18:43
Great app! Easy to use and saves me quite a bit at the end of the year.
Great Mileage Tracker
by Smittin on 2020/06/15 16:00
I introduced this to the president of the company I work for. It is now implemented with the project managers and supervisors. The format is so easy to use that there is no training and we are able to share the data with our superiors. I would definitely recommend MileIQ to anyone who needs to prove/record mileage.
by Waiting for a better app on 2020/06/14 21:51
I pay for the full version of the app - have done so FOR YEARS AND RECOMMENDED IT TO OTHERS- now I find that for the last month it hasn’t been recording my miles because I have the app set to record while using the app. When the heck did that change??? Now I have NO data for the last month!! Very displeased!
Had issues, but fixed!
by tennischick724 on 2020/06/14 21:07
I had issues with the app, stopped tracking drive time and mileage. I was panicked! I Contacted customer service and app was back up and running with a little effort. Thanks Mile IQ for making one part my job a little easier :).
Lyft 'Drive to' Miles.
by an App Store user 999 on 2020/06/13 06:21
Is this &#39;not&#39; recording my Lyft &#39;drive TO the customer&#39; miles? Lyft pays me for the miles once a customer is inside, but I would like to make sure that I can deduct all the drives &#39;getting to&#39; the customer, OR am I not leaving a whole lot of money on the table?
Easy to use - highly recommended!
by Mapi89 on 2020/06/12 22:57
Super easy to use and record drives. The auto-record feature and round trip features are very helpful. Also super easy to email reports for record keeping.
Great App
by Dmw12mrw on 2020/06/12 14:19
As a small business owner I needed a simple way to track mileage. This app is perfect. Very easy to use and the reports make things super easy come tax time. I would give it 6 stars if they let me.
Deleted all my drives
by rtt956 on 2020/06/11 21:29
All it took was losing internet connection in the middle of the night and now all of my drives are gone. Every time I try to refresh I get a connection error even though I’m connected to the internet. Was trying to save money but it seems that I have lost all of my potential savings relying on this app.
by Brady Lavy on 2020/06/11 18:05
I had to reinstall it one time because it wouldn’t connect. Besides that, no complaints.
Gig Apps
by 1cmon on 2020/06/11 14:33
I used MileIQ for my gig apps last year. I’d say it is worth the $70 a year. I use a scooter and sometimes drive double the miles per dollar. Create custom Business Purposes, then just swipe and hold to choose a business purpose or personal. Make sure you go through and classify your trips daily to avoid confusion later. Usually not a problem unless you have a week or a month of drives you can’t remember. Only other issue is it takes up to 15 minutes to register the completion of a trip, so sometimes it can blend two trips that were for separate gigs if you didn’t stop long enough. Login on desktop to get annual statement and give to your tax person.
It use to work great
by Purplelis on 2020/06/10 22:00
The app used to be i keep track of my business but for some reason it’s not keeping track of my drives anymore. I uninstalled and reinstalled still nothing. I’d love some help. I’m not going to get back my correct money from work 🤨
Says it free and then makes you pay
by Lovesammy21 on 2020/06/10 19:28
I just started using this app for my job and it says it free and then after 40 drives you have to pay $60. My whole job is driving and it has only lasted a week and now it wants me to pay. Don’t lie and say it’s free then. False advertising. Borderline scam. Thanks for wasting my time.
Great app

This app is not user friendly at all, doesn’t record all trips and takes up to much battery
Takes the work out of remembering
by majorpaynepoo on 2020/06/05 15:55
This is the best app for logging miles. The ability to pick vehicles, to classification of trips is great. The reports make things so easy.
Get it

Very Good
by C-Micah on 2020/06/04 22:09
Worked for me a year before I ever had an issue. It stopped catching drives, I had to uninstall and reinstall it . After that is was fine. Very helpful app to be able to track my mileage
No Longer works with IOS update.
by Msc444 on 2020/06/03 22:35
This was great until it was no longer compatible with iPhone updates. 😢🤯
Super easy
by bdawg15 on 2020/06/03 17:36
This is honestly one of the easiest apps I’ve ever used. Great interface, easy to understand, has pretty much everything you want to see on the app. Very well done and highly recommended!
Best app ever for tracking your miles!!
by yoloinCO on 2020/06/03 17:11
Its necessary for me to keep track of my mileage information for my company and the details this application offers is amazing. I have been using this app for 6 months and haven’t had any problems and no glitches with it. I have tried several different apps in the past and they don’t compare to the quality of this app at all. I will definitely continue to using it and recommend it to anyone who needs detailed mileage information without the hassle of having to keep track of it on your own.
Was excellent prior to recent updates
by ORDASM on 2020/06/03 16:34
Time to look elsewhere. Times are off, dates are off....MS really screwed the pooch on this recently.
Great app for business

Keeps up with my mileage while working out of town . Super nice and easy app
Great App!!
by casademize on 2020/06/03 15:04
I would never remember to write down my mileage and I would never have anything to turn in at the end of the month. So as any good salesperson would do, I made it up. Then I found this app and boom everything was done for me. From one lazy salesperson to the next, download this app! You’ll thank me later...
Bring back Spend!
by Salemid on 2020/06/03 08:27
I cannot believe the Microsoft Garage team is suggesting to use Money in Excel in place of the now defunct Spend (MileIQ sister app). The whole point of the app is for the convenience of not having to use a desktop.
Started Great, won’t launch now.
by MatthewGlaze on 2020/06/02 18:18
When I first downloaded the app I loved it. Now I can’t open the app. When I attempt to open it the app freezes and crashes while trying to log in every time without fail. Very frustrating!
Great app

Money down the drain
by Kes2015 on 2020/05/31 03:19
The app just stop working. I contacted to help line. Of course it was my fault for not check in my miles everyday. I did everything that they said. It still did not work. I spent hours manually entering my miles on their website. Contacted them three different times and no difference. Lost miles with no help from the developers and no refund.
Great mile tracking app!
by Hannah Duvall on 2020/05/30 21:47
This app is awesome! Very easy to navigate an it’s only $50 a year to track every drive.
Secret Charges
by K8Nawty on 2020/05/30 05:21
Loved this app until I realized 6 months later I was being charged for premium. Why would I sign up for premium when the free version works perfectly fine? Watch out for these crooks
by Subscriber! on 2020/05/27 18:14
Very disappointed
by sg38399283 on 2020/05/27 16:26
Been using this app for over a year. Depend on it for my monthly mileage reimbursement from my job. Now since May 18th it has stopped tracking my travel. On the 18th it showed I traveled to a destination and had me left there till Wednesday even though I had driven all over the place Tuesday and then Wednesday morning it somehow had me leaving that destination and heading to work. Don’t know how it managed to do that when my phone was with me the whole time and now it hadn’t tracked any of my drives at all for the last week. Hand entering them defeats the purpose and doesn’t ensure the security and accuracy my work requires for reimbursement. I’m going to need to find a new app and get a refund of my annual subscription cause I don’t even know how many miles I may have lost over the last 14 months.
Not working
by frust12345 on 2020/05/26 19:53
App isn’t detecting rides for about a week. Caught 4 rides over 2 days even tho I have been driving a lot each day. Checked all the settings and they seem correct
Awesome App!!
by Dieselman24 on 2020/05/24 14:03
This Mile iq has been a life saver for my taxes no more paper notes all right here not sure what they could do to improve it!! Great Job Developers!!
Great tracker
by budget man 21 on 2020/05/23 20:20
It is very easy to use and log for either business or personal
by Theguyreviewingthisapp on 2020/05/23 19:00
Sufficient, simple milage tracker that does exactly what you need it to do. And bonus points because you can track an unlimited number of trips for free if you have Microsoft 365. Beats the pants off of Everlance for it being free alone. Everlance only gives you 60 free trips before they want $5 a month to continue. Get bent, Everlance.
Love it!
by Ruthintx on 2020/05/23 00:52
It made the mileage for taxes so easy!
Good app, but...
by Ocho Chico on 2020/05/22 20:36

What happened!
by curlsqween on 2020/05/22 15:31
I haven’t been able to use the app since I got it. I used to love this application when I used it for my business with my S8 for some reason the app will not work with my iPhone XS Max. Glad I didn’t waste money on the premium.
Great for tracking

Business- Used this app when I was working in real estate. Perfect for tracking all the different properties shown and noting clients. Tax purposes. Personal- Now with that contact tracing that may be needed with Covid-19. This will be great for anyone who would like to be able to go back a few weeks to remember everywhere you have been.
Was great but not anymore
by Dragoonbill on 2020/05/21 04:46
After the most recent iOS update and MileIQ update, it basically doesn’t work. I have to have the app open on my screen for it to track trips. It was a life saver but now it literally doesn’t do what I need it to.
Great App
by iloveblkcats on 2020/05/21 00:58
I love this app, it has saved me so many hours logging business mileage!
Doesn’t work well
by dont buy this for money on 2020/05/20 21:45
Lost all my drives after 1 week. Help chat told me to check my settings, all of which were correct, and then restart the App. I when through the motions anyway with no result. I was also told to log my drives manually, which defeats the purpose of this app. Multiple log in and access problems as well. I would not recommend Paying a dime for this app.

It very simple and easy to use. Love it!
by logandaley on 2020/05/18 09:37
A simple tool to help track personal and business miles in one easy sweep. From a weekly report to monthly report, estimations are made on how much is used while driving. A tool that helps you save in the long run.
Just a swipe away.
by 🤬🤬🤬 ih8tech on 2020/05/17 11:06
Very easy app to use. I just swipe to the left for personal travel and to the right for business. I would like to see an address instead of a map of the places I’ve travel, but other than that I have no issues.
Doesn’t log all drives
by oklahomanancy on 2020/05/16 02:33
It skips a lot of my drives. It doesn’t work consistently.
Can not be trusted to be accurate
by MpowerSkills on 2020/05/15 19:53
It isn’t cheap either. It has one job and it doesn’t do it well.
In and between
by Badeofenheizer on 2020/05/15 03:48
On one end - great on the other end inaccurate, incomplete recording. Contacted CS several times - not helpful, long waiting, sometimes very rude. Issues again and not working correctly at all. I contacted as advised via email customer service over a month ago. No one is able to operate a phone or a keyboard. The app is incorrect working and CS is doing nothing. This is typically for all microsoft products! They don‘t care what you have for issues. They let you in the rain. Arrogant, not listening CS if someone is able to pick up the phone. This is the worst experience I ever had. A few more months and the subscription is expiered. This will be the best day to delete this piece of garbage from my phone. I‘m already count down the days.
Helpful features
by Titus heard on 2020/05/14 19:57
The fact MileIQ can separate and automatically classify drives is so helpful, it gives me the freedom to work and not worry about pidley stuff. Big thanks.
Inaccurate to the extreme!! Do not use!!
by BrownEyeSquirrel on 2020/05/12 01:11
I’ve been using this on my iPhone 7 for about a year. Go to do my taxes and open the app to see miles driven for work. Number it displays: GREATER THAN ALL MILES DRIVEN ON THE ODOMETER!!! I do not drive any other car and have religiously marked miles driven for work and personal use. ABSOLUTE GARBAGE APP!! User be warned!!!
by exoregon on 2020/05/11 23:54
Every time I sign in to use it it says it’s temporarily unavailable due to issues. This has been going on since last Wednesday. Meanwhile, I’m seeing clients without being able to use the mileage tracker that I PAID FOR. I’ve changed the password etc. Nothing works. Very disappointing.
Great app!
by Allison in Chattanooga on 2020/05/11 18:33
Makes tracking mileage for work a breeze!
Great app
by Renno80 on 2020/05/11 15:12
This app has simplified mileage tracking. Gone are the days of remembering to write down or otherwise capture your beginning and ending mileage, this app does it for you
Easy Peasy Just Needs Two Little Improvements
by Charmed Life 9 on 2018/05/30 14:23
I love this app and I use it all the time to track my business mileage. Easy as can be. You just swipe one way for biz and the other way for personal. It’s nice to see all your deductions adding up in the upper right corner. As for the improvements I’d like to see, I wish it was more accurate and it could pinpoint at least major landmarks like Costco or local schools. Sometimes once I’ve named a place, it says I was at that place if I was a couple blocks away. That makes it hard to be completely accurate in my tracking. For instance I named one of my kid’s schools and it thought I was there when I was going an open house at one of my listings a couple blocks away. One is business, one is personal. The other helpful update might be to have it remind you to track if you don’t do it for a couple days. As a Realtor I go so many places, if I get a few days behind I have no idea what his business and what is personal. I wouldn’t even mind a reminder every time I get out of the car, or at least every time I get home. I have a reminder set to delete texts and log mileage at the end of each day, but something from the app when I don’t do it would be great. That should probably be an optional feature because I know that would bug some people. Overall, thank you so much for making it easy to keep track of miles and get the tax write-offs. Well done!
About as simple as it gets!
by 4cinema on 2018/03/02 12:33
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!
Fire Protection Inspector
by JeremyNoll on 2018/01/27 21:56
I am an inspector for a company that installs, designs &amp; 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.
Good Luck
by Lazy Is Expensive on 2017/09/06 11:35
Missing several trips every day. I&#39;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&#39;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.&#34;UPDATE&#34; 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&#39;t want to hear about being my phone service. If anyone in the world lost service for more than 8 seconds they&#39;d pull over and freak out till it&#39;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&#39;t ever make a big deal out of things, but at this rate I&#39;m probably out about $7,500 worth of mileage last year and more this year. That&#39;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&#39;s a single day of accuracy I will update this again on Saturday this week.
Missing Key Features
by RealNewRu on 2018/01/25 20:43
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
by Chude's Reviews on 2019/07/26 01:05
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
by AcuDrew on 2019/02/19 12:43
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...
As User-Friendly As It Gets
by Ashlyn's Mama on 2018/04/02 16:43
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!!
Could more TAX friendly
by johncdali on 2018/01/23 05:00
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 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
by Bruce.88 on 2020/01/08 18:11
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...
by FilmGo2Guy on 2017/10/17 14:21
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.
Like the app - NOT ANY MORE
by pmandel on 2020/06/22 14:21
UPDATE Jun-2020 Ever since the latest iOS update, the app has been completely useless. I have followed every single one of their suggestions, I submitted a help ticket, and all they do is make the same suggestions over and over even though I have already told them I am following them to the letter. Location services always on, background app refresh, I keep the app running in the background, etc. Still, it is completely useless. Does not log my drives except the rare times when it does (perhaps one out of 10 drives), it shows either the wrong origin or wrong destination, completely wrong time of day, and ridiculous time enroute. For example, 8 miles in five minutes. The drive was at least 20 minutes long, possibly 25. I intend to request a full refund, or demand it if necessary, and find another app to work with. Don’t waste your time with this piece of junk, go elsewhere. Run, don’t walk. You’ve been warned. Using this app for six months at this point. Works great, integrates well with their website. Only feature I wish the app would do is to allow me to edit drives that I have already categorized. Categorized drives can be edited on the website but not on the app. Other than that, it’s a good app.
If you’re looking for less work, this may not be it
by Rgoks on 2019/01/09 18:24
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
by Handle da on 2020/01/25 13:23
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.
I had an issue, and no one could help me!
by NuNu The Virgo on 2020/05/03 04:37
My issue was, mile IQ stop recording my drives, and I couldn&#39;t figure out why, and then I remembered after they told me that they couldn&#39;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&#39;s what I put. So if you are using MileIQ make sure you put always so that you don&#39;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!
by Work-A-Haulic on 2017/09/16 09:59
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&#39;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 sleazy 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.!!!
Stops working if you don’t allow it to constantly track you
by dhduk on 2020/01/01 19:54
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.
Wish it was more accurate ...
by rangernine on 2020/07/03 17:02
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.
Not overly thrilled
by betnct2 on 2018/04/03 00:32
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
by Zoey fritz on 2018/06/04 01:16
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&#39;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! 👍
The company can’t send my reports to my outlook email
by tgmomip on 2019/09/18 16:01
I have an outlook account that is tied to MileIQ. I have been trying to send summary reports to that email but I never receive them in my inbox, junk or spam. I decided to call this morning to help me get my reports. They said that there is a problem with emails being sent to an email that is outlook, live or hotmail. That means that if you have an email associated with any one of those you can not receive your reports. I asked the phone representative when this problem would be corrected. He said he wasn’t sure at all when it wold be fixed and they have been aware of this problem for some time. I asked if he could send the reports- he replied that he doesn’t have access to those because of privacy reasons. His only suggestion was to get another email account that is not outlook, live or hotmail. This is a huge market that they are not servicing and it doesn’t seem to be taken that seriously. I am going to somehow get my reports printed and then I am canceling MileIQ and going with another company that can email my reports that I have paid for in advance.
One annoying feature
by Agrophile on 2018/08/11 15:07
I love being able to automatically track my mileage when I’m visiting clients, and the ability to customize the purposes of my drives; I work two jobs (one FT and one seasonal) as an independent contractor and I like to be able to keep the mileage separate for both. The one thing I cannot stand about this app is that whenever you close it, if you have notifications allowed, you get a message saying, “Heads up! MileIQ has quit. Tap here or re-open the app to continue classifying your drives.” I just don’t understand - I mean, of course the app has quit, I just double-tapped my home button (iPhone) and swiped to close it. I had to do that deliberately in order to quit the app. Why do I need a reminder that it worked? This happens even when you’re completely caught up on your drives and have nothing to classify, making it even more of an unnecessary annoyance. So, developers, can we maybe reconsider that?
Not Worth It.
by 116musicdude on 2020/03/02 09:04
Only good thing about this app is it seems to track your total miles well. I am an Uber driver in Dallas Fort Worth. I have relied on this app for the past two years to track my business miles. Unfortunately, the app is not near accurate enough for my needs. Overlapping drives show up in the app saying I’m in two different places at one time. Drives don’t show up until between a half hour and a couple days later after I complete a drive. Stops aren’t recognized with accuracy. If you need to accurately track business and personal drives in a single day, with the tax laws nowadays I recommend you save your money and track your drives manually. As an Uber driver, I start and stop frequently, and this app just isn’t accurate and fast enough to handle it. If you’re going somewhere and stopping for 20 min or so before moving on, this app will work great. But if you’re dropping off, picking up etc. in intervals of 5-10 minutes, it’s just too much for this app to take, and all your driving will be lumped together.
One of the better mileage apps, just needs improvement.
by BJ0924 on 2018/10/17 18:48
This app is great. I was using Quickbooks and it missed a ton of my trips so I switched. This app has many more features. I like that you can classify frequent jobs. I’m a pet sitter some sometimes I drive to the same location three or four times a day. Two improvements regarding accuracy and I would rate this app 5 stars: 1. I want the app to highlight the route you took. Doesn’t seem like it should be that hard to implement. For example, sometimes it will log my starting and ending points both as home and since I don’t classify trips everyday I can’t remember where I went! 2. I want to be able to split trips. Sometimes I combine a personal and business related trip into one. If I do a pet check in while I out and about for personal reasons I can’t really count all of the mileage as business related. Still really enjoy the app, though!
Great, but misses some drives
by Delilah121 on 2019/01/03 16:53
Not often, but occasionally I notice that one of my drives isn’t there. It’s usually a case where it shows me coming home from somewhere, but how did I get there? (And no, it hasn’t been auto-classified as anything) Overall great though. An easy way to track drives without having to think about it. One other note: it could really use a “not in my car” option. The only way to not have it racked up for a write-off is to classify it as personal. I worry that casts suspicion on other drives to those locations. Also, I find it very offensive that under the “email notifications” setting, you can toggle on/off for weekly, monthly and “other” emails, but if you try to toggle off the promotional emails, it toggles it right back on. “You will receive our unsolicited emails and you will LIKE them!!” Not cool, not cool. Any update on that “not in my car” feature I mentioned?
Mile IQ Saves Time and a Headache
by Jackndabox420 on 2018/05/29 14:33
I was referred to MileIQ by my boss. I didn’t think too much since I thought writing would be more accurate. I was completely wrong! At times I would forget or just didn’t remember where I was. I even had my job question where I was or what I was doing on the clock at a different address. It was a building supply store I couldn’t remember weeks ago. Thank goodness for this app. It has helped me with a reminder for weekly or monthly reports and sends to the email. GPS is accurate and precise. I have not tried other mile apps but I can say I am still with this app and will most likely purchase the app to see if other features highlight the benefit of the monthly/yearly purchase. Thank You to the customer service who Actually responded to my concerns. Much appreciated, Gabe
Good Tracking - Missing some app features
by joedavenport on 2018/01/03 20:53
MileIQ is a quality app, but if I didn’t also have an Automatic Pro unit the data would be tough to decipher. If you visit locations in close proximity the app wants to merge the data, without providing you the option to specify that the new location is a different address than the previous location nearby. It’s also confusing why we can’t view previously classified drives in the app (you can online). I’d also like to be able to view a list of all the times and dates that I have visited a previous location. For example, I need to bill labor at Project 1, I want to select Project 1 from a list of classified locations and then see a list of all the drives associated with that address. Linking with our address book would be wise too so that our drives are stored with the correct address when we can’t park directly at the project.
Overall Great, but One Major Concern
by hdkr fidhshxyrnfkc on 2018/12/15 16:50
This app is a brilliant idea, and it’s certainly going to make thing easier come tax season. My biggest frustration is: I drive Lyft and live in a rural area, so I drive around 20 miles into town to start getting more rides. I’ll often get my first ride while I’m moving, and when I pick them up, I’m only stopped for about two minutes, so MileIQ doesn’t register the stop. I can’t claim the miles going into town or out of town (the IRS considers these a “commute”), but when I get home, I have one big, long drive to classify because I never stopped moving long enough. It’d be really nice to be able to go into each drive and manually break them into smaller ones when necessary. As it stands, I’m left trying to subtract about 40 miles from each day of my report by hand before calculating my taxes, which kind of defeats the purpose of the app.
Easy, Powerful Tool
by Jcdubyah on 2018/11/13 15:32
If you are like me, you simply don’t remember how much you drive if you for business purposes. What really surprised me were the simple trips to a nearby client. A few miles here and there quickly turn into hundreds of dollars that are so easy to forget. The great part about this app is that it does the thinking for you. And not being owned and operated by a fly-by-night company gives me peace of mind that at the end of the year the data will still be there. As far as how easy it is to use - just swipe for each trip - left for personal, right for business. Tolls, parking, and other notes are available with each swipe. At the end of your reimbursement cycle or at tax time, the data can be exported into a spreadsheet or PDF for detailed backup. Highly recommend.
Great app
by @ngel0fmusic on 2018/09/05 14:56
I have been using this app since April and it took some getting used to. But now that I’m getting the hang of it and being able to set things it has made it sooo easy to track my mileage. I use this app to track all my medical and charity and business mileage. It has been great to know that I don’t have to think about it. I too believe that there should be an option to be able to set reminders within the app to remember to classify the drives. A once a day or every other day type of reminder. Also it would be easier to track if the locations could have more pinpoint accuracy rather than the name of the neighborhood you went to. I have to look at the date and the time of day and try to remember what I was doing to try to remember if it’s business/charity/medical. Add these two features and I will definitely give it 5 stars.
Keeps track of driving very well
by Jfp2081 on 2017/11/17 01:28
Does a great job keeping track of driving. The one thing I wish is sometimes I make a quick stop and I notice I have to wait at the location for a few minutes (about 3-5 min) for the app to recognize this was a stop. Wish there was a way I could manually tell the app I’ve stopped and arrived at my destination in an effort to count it as a trip immediately. instead I have to wait for the app to internally recognize a stop has been made to then log the trip. Not a big deal because I usually do email or return a phone call while I wait for the app to show the trip, but would be better if I could log it immediately instead of working around the app software. In the end it’s easier than a scratchpad or manual log!
Lacking key information not worth the price
by Californian 2 on 2017/12/30 15:42
The app tracks miles easily and is simple to use. The problem is that it is too simple in terms of data and functionality. It tells you in app only total drives, biz vs personal without mileage breakdown. You can have 55 personal drives of a mile each and 3 business drives of 160 miles each but the app makes it look like you have a lot more personal than biz use because the graphic will say 55 personal and 3 biz and even give a percentage based on that, when in reality you have a larger percentage of biz use than personal. If you accidentally categorize something the wrong way, you can’t change it! You have to wait until the end of the month, email the spreadsheet to yourself, find the drive and change the info but then it is only in your local report on your computer. If you resend the report from the app, it is still wrong. Also the reports are not presorted, so that is additional work you have to do. Not sure it is worth the price!
Pretty accurate, needs to get used to.
by WindozeGuru on 2017/12/02 04:23
Was put on to this app for making mileage tracking easier for expense reporting. Tried it mid week in the last week of November and was frustrated that it got several drives incomplete and from different locations than I was at. Example: stopped for gas on a business trip and lost the first half of the journey. On the flip side, it is easy to edit out mistakes on the web based screens @ MileIQ site. Found that once I named the 19 stops I frequent on trips during the month, it was a breeze to get the app to be a lot more accurate. Going to try this for the month of December and might buy an unlimited package. Forty drives will only last about ten working days as a network and computer field tech. Maybe the developers should consider an initial 80 drives for the first month and then forty after that (?).
Save time. Deduct more.
by Pazaz Wellness on 2018/02/06 23:01
I’ve had mileage deductions for years and it’s always been a hassle to keep track of it and/or go back and calculate. Not only does this make tracking easier, it makes me consider every drive—many is which I probably would have missed counting—and it tracks mileage if I get lost and take the long way. To the guy who’s complaining about missing stops...I have noticed that if I make a very brief stop—say to drop someone off or something—it doesn’t necessarily end the drive at that stop as it’s probably not much longer of a stop than a long stop light. But it’s still tracking the miles! There may be several “stops” in one drive. Still works for me. So thankful for this app! Totally worth the $ to not have to track on my own!!
Meh, for my purposes
by a62dave on 2020/02/15 16:34
I need to track mileage a few times a month, maybe three times in one week, then two weeks where I don’t need to track mileage, then two weeks where I might need to track mileage every other day, and sometimes on the weekend. My 40 free drives were used up pretty quickly, very few of which were business related. You can turn off automatic drive detection, for those weeks where it’s all personal, but then you have to remember to turn it back on. If you have business related drives nearly every day, then I would say this app is pretty good for that. Unless you customize everything, the end of month report is pretty generic. It lists the date, how many miles I drove from city to city. For my purposes, my existing Google Sheet does the job... at the end of the month, it IS the report, and I can be as specific with the trip type as I want to be.
A REAL Assistant!
by Skeptical Deb on 2018/02/13 15:55
I’ve tried many apps that were supposed to “help“ me. But most eventually disappointed… Too hard to learn, too hard to use, too buggy... I tried mile IQ on a lark. I figured, it would be better than my scribbled notes on paper. Well, it’s definitely better than scribbled notes! My very favorite thing about mile IQ, is just getting into a car, going about my day, without giving mileage a second thought. No looking for paper upon which to scribble notes, no keeping those papers organized and available for monthly reports... what a relief. I have a busy life. It took me about six months at a new job to even give my Mile IQ reports a glance. But quickly, and easily, I was able to provide complete and accurate reports to my employer for reimbursement. Going back and filling in the details, was quite a challenge. Although mile IQ makes it incredibly easy to categorize drives, my memory fails after a few weeks. So, I do recommend that you try to stay up-to-date on classifying drives. It’s something I do at night, or in the morning, or as soon as I possibly can after a busy week. I wish all the tools I use to make my life more productive were as helpful as Mile IQ.
Great for business mileage/keeping track of your kids whereabouts
by Brawe Tax Manager on 2019/01/02 03:40
I highly recommend this app and do to all my tax clients. Being a tax preparer and having many clients who need to keep their business mileage and good record keeping, I always recommend this app. I recommend it so much I should be getting it free!!! Lol. Seriously this app is a no brainer and worth the little extra I pay a month and also very good because I have it on my sons phone who is 9. His is connected to my phone so I see where all he goes when he is on the bus, with his dad or friends and if he was to ever be taken or go somewhere he doesn’t belong I would at least have some idea where to look. Such a good thing and wasn’t planning it for that but very helpful.
Work tool
by iTaLL4@££ on 2017/11/28 13:36
Purchased this MileIQ app for a new job. Tracking my work vs personal driving was critically important to me and this App has become an invaluable tool. I cannot use this app directly for reporting mileage to the office - but - it has saved my tail a few times when I desperately needed a reference point. The detailed reporting is amazing. MileIQ has save me not only time but money, for example, I&#39;d vaguely recall a series of drives through a week/weekend but never really confident because each time I rethink the route, I&#39;d almost always remember another stop that was not previously counted. That is time consuming and frustrating, MileIQ is NONE of those things :) MileIQ is very user friendly. I&#39;m able to easily access recent road trips, develop personal cataloging information, all combined with a simple (.pdf) export feature... what more could you ask for? Don&#39;t tell the developers, but I would have paid WAY more money to have saved this much time. I drive &gt;30,000 miles each year, I&#39;m confident that those miles will be accurately logged from here on out. Another satisfied customer looking to share my personal experience with MileIQ. Thanks!
Saves me HOURS every month!
by MN_Salesguy on 2019/09/09 11:49
This app saves me hours every month when I do my expense report and mileage log! It catches drives that would’ve otherwise been forgotten and he is able to produce a CSV file that I can dump right into excel. The reason I gave it four stars instead of five, is that I would like the available input/output fields to be customizable and arrangeable so the report that is generated more closely mirrors my company’s expense report/mileage log. I understand that the fields generated are the ones required for tax purposes so including them in the report would still be important, but I would rather be able to sort or eliminate them from the custom CSV report. I would also like to see a box added for expenses other than parking, though it is not directly related to mileage.
Easy but needs improvement
by THellwinckel on 2019/01/31 22:31
My drives aren’t being logged even though drive detection is on because some of my drives are less than 1/2 mile, so I have to log these in manually. Also the edit feature doesn’t allow me to change the date, time, or location. I’m human and I hit the wrong button sometimes when I am manually logging trips. When I was trying to log trips for the month, I forgot a few times that the date automatically set to today then after I saved, I couldn’t go back and change it. Also, one of my locations was very close to my office and the app put the address as my office even though that’s not what I typed. I can’t change it. I’m willing to delete those trips and redo them, but I don’t see a way to delete. I’m waiting a full month to see if this app is worth the 60 bucks a year.
Must have for certain jobs!
by III Equinox III on 2018/05/28 01:55
I’m an installation and service technician, so my job requires me to drive quite a bit from house to house, sometimes building up to around 2.5 hours of driving every day. Fortunately, because I’m driving so much for work, I’ll be able to take advantage of the tax implications. However, keeping track of all of the driving I do would be nearly impossible, most certainly stressful, and too time consuming to do myself. This app is incredible, especially since I don’t need to have it open all the time or initiate something when I begin driving. It just tracks and automatically detects when and where I’m going. Invaluable - $6/month is more than fair for the unlimited plan.
Drive Alerts
by Meli Rae on 2019/01/05 00:45
I was so pleased with and impressed by the quick turnaround on a feature I requested. Because I drive a lot for work and pleasure, and just living the standard busy life of a working American, I always forgot to classify my drives and then would sometimes forget where I’d been when trying to classify the drives days, weeks or months later. I asked MileIQ to set up a notification to alert drivers at the end of each drive to classify it right away. Within a few days, it was done! No more forgetting to classify those deductible business miles! For business mileage tracking purposes, this app provides a simple way to keep you organized and ready for tax season.
Consistently 20% off of my actual mileage
by gotbrains? on 2019/12/21 18:46
I’ve been testing the paid version this last month driving for Uber and Lyft and the daily mileage compared to my odometer is always about 20% short. From MileIQ: You will notice a difference in mileage if you are comparing the mileage to a navigation application. MileIQ tracks differently than a GPS tracker. MileIQ tracks the start and end point of every drive and generates the most likely route that was taken, which is usually the fastest time/route. What this means is that MileIQ does not actually track the route you drive, rather it tracks the most likely route between point A and B. This method doesn’t work for Rideshare because there is not enough wait time to register the end of a trip(it takes a few minutes). And multiple trips are combined into a single trip With one start and endpoint. I find the app Hurdlr to be much more accurate (within about 4%) even though they also combine trips.
Updated review
by rldelga on 2017/11/01 03:04
It was very frustrating trying to get ahold of a person when I couldn’t log into my account, and emails weren’t going through. It took 24 hours (on a weekday, not a holiday) to get a response, and once I got an email, I finally got password reset emails as well. It was very frustrating, but once someone responded, by issues were fixed quickly, and I no longer have a problem. The app saves a lot of time and generally works well, but you need to pay attention to your drives because occasionally the app will miss a couple, and you need to manually input them. It works well for me, as a freelance designer with most drives under 5 miles, but I could see it being problematic for someone that drives a lot more. Overall I’m pretty happy
Great App but...
by toohottocare on 2018/02/14 06:10
When I find a discrepancy, it cannot be fixed with the phone app. I have to use a computer to go online into the Dashboard to correct them. I can’t even log in via a browser on my phone! There is no place to log in from my phone. So it’s quite inconvenient to have to find a computer to use when I’m traveling. All features should be accessible through the MileIQ app! That being said, I contacted support regarding an issue. I was contacted within 24 hours with a support person who really cared about my issue and was willing to go the extra mile (no pun intended 😬). However, my issue as stated above can only be fixed via computer not through the app. So still no resolution. But I do like the app. Much easier than logging miles!
It is great, but it works like a teenager, when it wants to
by Jon Sig on 2020/06/18 03:52
Overall it has found most of my drives and made categorizing them easy. But... it is far from failsafe. It has just stopped recording drives a few times and the only way to fix it has been to uninstall and start over. It has missed more than a few drives. Okay I guess when you are running to the store, not okay when you drove 45 miles each way to meet a client. Neither is okay actually as your mileage log is hogwash. It sometimes categorizes walks as drives... I think I walk quick, but my even my sprint isn’t drive like... I’ve decided to try some other similar apps. If they can’t get things straight maybe I’ll be back, maybe I’ll go back to paper. Oh how the idea of a swipe right or left to track miles was a great idea.
Good, not great
by Restinsuredllcaz on 2020/01/21 23:18
It’s way better than using a written log. My biggest complaint, is the map. I often forget to remember my drives and when I go back to enter, clicking on the map would help if it showed where I went vs where I started. Another issue, the allow location has to always be on. They do this for obvious reasons, the free version only gives 40 drives. If location is off, a drive won’t be recorded. We should be able to start and stop a drive ourselves and compare and edit mileage if necessary. $60 a year is a bit steep for the numerous flaws. I’ve been paying for a 6+ years. But, overall it’s a solid app. However, I am driving less and considering pen to paper after reading about other inaccuracies after 2020 is up.
More business options needed
by Chazapps on 2018/12/02 04:26
I like the app. It’s handy to separate business from personal, and the app works good, intuitive, easy to use. But I run 2 different businesses using my car a lot. It would be better if MileIQ had tracking for at least 2 businesses where you could enter separate names that could show all the mileage entries together for one business name, and all the other entries together under a second name. Can you give that a try? Actually I’m hoping you could make choices available for 3 business names - I have 2 businesses, plus I’d like to keep track of all my medical transportation expenses too, all 3 being separate from personal driving. Since I’m gettin older, I drive quite a few miles to various Med facilities.
Update: Great for Subcontractors
by Zachp1104 on 2017/11/03 16:02
This app at first is a bit weird, it tracks every trip. So to those reading this, make sure you go through your trip log daily and sort through each one (later it will let you auto classify frequent drives). Other than that at first its great. I drive for Lyft, and work as a Subcontractor for dealerships. So I&#39;m constantly driving around, then when i make personal trips, its great for that too because I can swipe left and itll classify as personal. It is really easy to use, just at least once a day get on and make sure you classify everything so you dont forget what trips are business or personal. Other than the good things biggest con, it drains your battery. Constantly running and when you set it to while using the app (in location settings on IOS) it wont work....
