Pros and cons of MileBug - Mileage Log & Expenses for Tax Deduction app for iPhone and iPad

MileBug - Mileage Log & Expenses for Tax Deduction app good for

Ive tried multiple mileage apps. This one by far is the easiest to use. The notification badge is a premium, making sure you close out trips correctly. Two thumbs up!
Very useful app which I use every day. Usefull reports for accountability.
Awesome app- used it for YEARS now. Depend on it- simple entry flow, spits out regular accounting records. Great!
This app has helped to keep my travel expenses organized and the spreadsheet reports go straight to my accountant, its so simple to use!
The best way of keeping track. Extremely easy to manipulate. This is the 2nd year of using it, and its helped in taxes as well!
Very happy with the app in tracking my business and personal mileage and generating reports. One annoying thing is when switching from personal to business use the last location is not retained. If that is updated with the next version, 5 stars.

Some bad moments

Well, I have been using mile bug for over two years. During that time, it has been reliable. However, this new update has completely broken the odometer and it is impossible to enter trips on this app at the moment, even with the suggested notepad fix on their blog. I am searching for a new app now, because I cant afford not to track my mileage on a reliable platform, and despite having emailed them, I think they have other priorities over the holidays. Get it together!
The free ones seem to be better than a $3 app. It turns the gps off at random and isnt easy to use
I downloaded this app today to try out while I was making some sales calls. Drove over 65 miles before the app crashes and I lost all my trip data. I restarted it drove another 45 miles and it did it again. Im going with different app.
I will often start a trip, type in my starting mileage. Then upon arriving at the end of my trip, I got to type in end mileage, only to find the entire entry has disappeared. This is a serious bug that needs to be addressed to make this app worthwhile.
I cannot find my 2015 driving logs. Absolutely fuming. Whats the point of logging miles if they disappear?
It repeated many trips, as in the same one was listed on the same day many times each time I backed it up from the cloud. I emailed them & something like "youll receive a response in 24-48 hours" yet its been that long and I havent received a response... theeen, Everything Id entered disappeared! Yes, disappeared!!!!! I deleted it a few times then just now some trips show up from Jan-March 2015 & out of order, but Id entered all the way to August. Yeah, I bought this to finish my 2015 taxes & have it all listed easily. It has done nothing but sucked for the last month... get something else! What I said previously, before I bought the cloud back up: The rate now often coming up is annoying but overall a great app! Is prefer to have each address saved under a name or "easy reference" title rather than just the address. Also, it would be Smart & Awesome of them to have the default starting address be the one that was entered just prior since if we have to change it, wed have to do the same movements anyway (its not wasting any time if they did do that) and it could actually save input time! Overall, its pretty straightforward once you get the hang of the few steps to do before beginning the trip. I liken it to making coffee.. You learn the few steps then it becomes habit. :)
