Ratings and Reviews
Easiest app to use for mileage and expenses
I really like Stride compared to the other apps out there. It tracks mileage well and instantly calculates your profit. I like the fact you can categorize by jobs, add photos of receipts, and other expenses all in one place. I would be willing to pay for a premium version. I’d like to see auto detect motion start and stop, similar to MileageIQ. That should be an option to turn on and off as desired, since sometimes I forget to turn it on. My biggest complaint however, is it is not easy to search for added expenses and update or make modifications. There are 2 columns “Deductions and Income”. If I need to search for the expense I have to scroll the entire list looking for it. I should be able to search “dash cam” for example and find every expense associated for that category. II’ll add to my review as I think of more improvements the developers can add.
Good, needs to improve data export
I’ve been using the app to track rideshare miles driven and I am happy with what it does so far. However, lots more room for improvement in exporting data.
The current generated reports contain unneeded labels in numeric data. For example, the text “mi” in the export of miles or a dollar sign in currency columns. This may be ok for a text report but causes problems in .csv file exports. The fields with the extraneous labels have to be modified to get to raw numbers that can be modified or used in calculations. The header row is where the labels belong, never in a numeric data field.
Also, I’d really like to be able to export data for a specific date range so I can periodically update whatever external spreadsheet or database I am working with. Right now, the only option is for all data of a given year. It’s a nuisance to export the whole year’s data to get the last week or month of data.
Two more additions. Please add the TIME spent driving to the mileage data report. I really want to get a report on time driving. Maybe even some stats on when. Finally, create a report that will let me export the data for each log file as a row of CSV file data. Give me the choice of exporting as one row per file, one row per day, per week, month or quarter.
Finally, include the number of miles and hours driven in the weekly deduction email along with their dollar value.
Needs some improvement
I have been using this app for over a year because is the easiest and free. Most of the time it works fine, but every once in a while it doesn’t remind me to end my trip. I notice the next day when i am starting another trip. This is an annoyance and can cause issues when filing taxes. If the irs audits me they will not see that the car was stopped, they will see that i am claiming i drove for over 24 hours straight, which is not the case since the car was parked. This needs to be fixed otherwise will have to look other options. Also when exporting data it just gives 1 big spreadsheet with everything there, for people with more than 1 job is also an annoyance not being able to separate the miles by job. This year i had to sit down and manually calculate how many miles i did for each of my jobs so my tax preparer could use the correct miles. Even on excel you can sort/filter with just 1 button. This should be corrected too.
