    Great reports does just what I need it to do. The recent addition of the type to search feature has it made it so much easier to locate destinations and purposes as I have accumulated many of both. Well done!
  • Love this app

    This app is a lifesaver! I am horrible about writing down mileage and this app makes it so easy! I haven't forgotten any logs since buying the app. Now pulling reports is a snap!

    After using this app for 3 years, all my data is gone. Business, Presets, Destination and Purpose fields all there but meta data is gone...wiped clean. My last backup was a few months back so I'm not pleased

    Great App. Extremely user friendly. It allows you either to manually input the mileage or use GPS tracking.
  • Can figure out

    I have to give Mike Bug a low rating for now. I can not figure out how it operates. I see no instructions.
  • Good app with good features

    I've used MileBug for about a year. It allows me to track what clients I go to and add notes about the trip. It calculates either the number of miles or the beginning or ending mileage by simply filling in 2 of the 3 fields - beginning mileage, ending mileage, or # miles. It can track expenses but I have not found the need for that. I guess if I kept track of gas and repairs, that would be a good use of that feature. Customizable destination and origin codes allow me to put in my clients and description lets me know what the visit is for. There is only one little glitch that I have found- you need to save after you enter your beginning mileage but before the end of your trip and sometimes I will open the app to go to my next client and my last trip will be open even though I finished the trip. If I don't hit save before I log my next trip, I will lose the previous trip. It's a little confusing to me but it may just be operator error. Anyway,I did a lot of research before I decided on this app and it has been a good tool for me. Exporting the data to Excel at the end of the year allows me to review and adjust missing entries before I go to submit my mileage for taxes.
  • Would be nice

    It would be nice to have a local option, or something. It keeps trying to take me to the east coast, when I am only going across town. As well, would be even better if it worked with ipad sideways, but no, they force you to use your ipad in a fashion you are not used to.
  • Frequently malfunctions

    Have to upload this every month (have used for 1 year now) , and 3 out of every 4 months it doesn't open, doesn't upload, etc. using iPhone and mac laptop. Also not very customizable. Also doesn't remember my patterns and prefills destinations that are wrong , every single day. Glad I'm switching jobs and can stop using it.
