[Maximize Your Tax Deduction]
Max automatically tracks and records your mileage in the background as you drive your car for business. Max users save an average of $9,000 per year for tax deduction purposes. The 2019 standard IRS mileage rate of 58 cents per mile driven for business, 14 cents for charity and 18 cents for medical mileage.

Easy to Use. Loaded with Features.
Two of the biggest mistakes manual paper log keepers make is not maintaining a contemporaneous mileage log and mixing their business miles with personal miles. Inaccurate record-keeping can result in rejected mileage deduction claims and IRS penalties.

Automatic Mileage Detection
Max creates an accurate, contemporaneous record of the miles you drive for work. Automatic drive detection means no stopping and starting the app. No need for manual paper logs.

Accurate Mileage Tracking
Features like Auto Address Detection and One Swipe Categorization give your tax-deductible mileage records the accurate details they need to pass IRS scrutiny.

A Custom Fit
No matter whether you're tracking miles for reimbursements or tax deductions, Max gives you the tools and flexibility to create mileage record details that reflect the miles you drive.

• Personalize each drive with vehicle names or any designation that fits your business
• Customize your own mileage rate, currency, and themes
• Use bulk editing to give groups of drives a single purpose
• Add drives, delete drives, re-classify drives, and more

Detailed Records of Every Trip
A mileage log is only as good as the reports it generates. Stored securely in the cloud, Max sends monthly PDF/CSV mileage reports on your request. Need more specificity, use the web dashboard to generate custom reports.

Battery Consumption

Max consumes almost no power when stationary (as it quickly goes to "sleep"), and it will only minimally increase battery consumption when in transit. To achieve this minimal battery usage, Max uses a smartly constructed algorithm to detect drives rather than only using GPS (which requires more power) for location data.

[Maximize Your Driving Earnings]

Max provides real-time ridesharing insight in term of driver supply and rider requests in your region so that you can make a better-informed decision. With Max, you can stay ahead of your peers and earn on average 30% more each month.

Heatmap - the pulse of the dynamic market
Use Max’s heatmap (driver heatmap, pax heatmap, and opportunity heatmap) to view the business areas and trending regions with higher odds to experience more ride demand and stay in the surging area before it happens.

Smart Trip Planner - tell you where to go to earn more
Use “Where To Go” to plot the best tactic based on your driving goal of the day. With details trending information in the next hours, you will be better prepared other than simply following the flow.

Community Intelligence
With Max, you can contribute to the driver community with the real-time information you feel valuable to your fellow drivers and benefits from their contribution as well. We believe a more united driver community can create necessary leverage to better fight against the algorithm platforms.

Horrible. Old app was so much better. I understand there is a learning curve but c'mon man, logging miles and expenses should be fast and easy. If you are doing away with old app, I will be looking for a new app to give my money to. For what I pay for your app each year, this thing is a massive disappointment. UPDATE: I did what you are suggesting when I downloaded the app and tried to figure it out. It is so confusing and difficult to use, it makes no sense in the flow. You really need to recall it, do a beta and let the old app live on until you can figure this one out. I am talking about ease of use. It used to be easy for me to log my maintenance and gas fill ups. For work travel I push a button that said work, for personal I push a button for personal, simple, easy. Now, I have to swipe one way or another but I don't know which way is what, still haven't found where to log my fuel purchases and maintenance. My several years of data from the old app is not in the new app so I fear losing it. All I am saying is, this app is not even close to the old version, you took something that wasn't broken and tried to fix it and now it sucks. Go back to the old app, put this one back in production and beta test it to get it working better before you roll it out. As a paying customer, I am anything but happy with the new version and I am trying hard to communicate the problem(s). I see other reviews that are not favorable, you need to listen or you are going to lose customers.

Laine, I am not sure Google play review is a good place to support you. I think there are many misunderstanding. We are gradually sunset SherpaShare app but you can keep using SherpaShare app if you prefer. Also for the data you have with SherpaShare, you can always access. You can email us at so we can better support you.

Dang Max, I was really digging your app until I found out there was a monthly fee! Already have Farepilot and theirs is $2 cheaper and mileage tracking is free via the Stride app. Guess I'm going to uninstall, shame cause I really enjoyed your interface (except for the black text against the black background, to hard to see).😔

I used this app for a long time and upgraded from Sherpashare. It stopped collecting drives and I missed several months. I tried to contact support through chat, never received a response. I tried email, never received a response. I am cancelling and have moved to a new app hoping support is better.
