I use my odometer. Every mile my stupid truck drives is business related :)
But when I am in my car or on my bike and I have to track I use MileIQ. Works well and I know my cpa prefers that app over all other systems.
I really like using Stride. It also lets me track other expenses like advertising and supplies too.
I use Mile Logger and I am real happy with it. Easy to use.
I've been using Mileiq. As a CPA, I get it for free and I can get others a discount code. I like the reporting features and customization of it.
But it's been a bit glitchy lately and the Drive Detection hasn't been working 100%. Not sure if it's the app or my phone.
As a backup, I use Google Timelines, but fair warning, it's a little creepy. Google knows where I go, not just to the address, but also the businesses visited. When I login, it says "It looks like you were at Home Depot!" and I'm always just a little unnerved by that.
It knows how long I was there and probably also knows who I was meeting with, what they were drinking and what color underwear I was wearing. When you sync that with my expensify app, which knows about every dollar I spend on credit/debit cards, I'm fairly certain I can't get away with any crimes, ever.
Funny, I was coming on today to ask a question about this very topic and happened on this first.
I'm considering TripLog just because it specifically states it can activate based on Bluetooth connection to a stereo or other specific in car device. It's also much less expensive than MileIQ.
For expenses, I'm struggling because I don't have other expenses to track for my day job or operate any other businesses at the moment. I also don't currently plan to try and manage multiple flips at the same time, so I'm wondering if an app as costly as Expensify is a good fit, or if there's something that works well at a lower price point?
