MileIQ (Android, iOS) is one of the most polished and easy-to-use apps.
The ease-of-use part goes like this: For every drive MileIQ records — and it does this with effortless automation — you swipe left if it’s personal or right if it’s business. From there you can get more granular about drive organization (like classifying different purposes), but ultimately it’s the lightning-quick categorization that makes life really easy. And the app keeps a running tally of how much your business-related drives are worth (based on IRS deduction rates). You can also specify work hours so that MileIQ isn’t automatically trying to classify drives outside those hours.
The app costs $5.99 per month or $59.99 annually, a price that includes tracking for an unlimited number of drives. There’s also a free option, but it limits you to 40 drives per month — probably not enough if you use your vehicle for both business and personal trips. If you want to get the annual plan for $47.99 for the first year, please use this link to save.)
