This app is very glitchy. I invested in it (as a small business) and am not very concerned it is not up to the task. It cannot connect to Venmo, constantly does not record my milage (or won't stop recording for hours, resulting in inaccuracies), does not save my progress when I categorize the trips it does manage to save, and has a pretty confusing layout. I opted for the more expensive option in order to upload to TurboTax, but am now realizing it probably won't be able to do that either.

Mileage dates display a day early in the app compared to the online interface. How is it even possible to mess that up??? | Terrible interface for mileage tracking. Online interface doesn't allow you to see specific months or days so it's awful to go back and check on things. | Auto tracking keeps turning off. | Difficult to save favorite locations. Sometimes it shows the option to do so, sometimes it exits that area as soon as you confirm the address.

Not great! It does not auto track my miles accurately even though it is set correctly. Update Sept. 2023, mileage tracking got better for a while so I've kept using it. It's great for tracking financials. Mileage tracking is still pretty bad. I drive the same way to work every day and the mileage is always different. It misses a lot of trips and constantly logs me out. I submitted a ticket and was basically told I'm not the only one and they are working on it.
