I was skeptical when I downloaded this app. I had tried a couple of others and uninstalled them within couple of days. I travel mostly in rural areas and the others were not capturing a fraction of my miles. TripLog is FANTASTIC. While the free version is probably perfect for most people, it captured so many additional miles that I typically forgot to log that I had recouped more than enough within 2 weeks to justify the cost of a paid plan. I highly recommend this to self employed and small business owners who travel a lot, especially in rural areas.
When it works it works, when it doesn't.. I liked this app because I could set it and forget it. However I recently realized that for the past 4 months it has decided not to track my mileage. So that's 4 months worth of km that I won't be able to claim back at the end of the year. If you use this app make sure you monitor it carefully, as it just decides it doesn't want to work sometimes.
UPDATE: Thanks so much for the response, I have downloaded the update and will let you know if problems occur anymore. ORIGINAL REVIEW: I use this to automatically track my mileage in my car. It begins the moment it connects to bluetooth in my vehicle and works perfectly. One more job to the robots!!! Love the app. :)
Overheating my phone!!! The app works as advertised it does very well reporting and functionality, however I had to uninstall the app after 2 weeks because my phone started to overheat do this app running in the background. It also drains the battery really quick.
Update improved, but still not a 5 Long time user of this almost 5 star app. Back to 4, Update is much better, manual start now functional but still adding a 0 mile trip. Hopefully battery drain is fixed. Really liking the magic start.
Ugh, neither I nor my techie hubby can figure out how to work this app. Tracking in a paper log was easier, sadly. I don't have time to get on a desk top computer and fix every trip! Always asking me to save a trip and always showing zero mileage which can't be saved. Not what I expect for my money.
