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.
This app is just like any other expense tracking app. It works. It’s great. I’ve been using it for years. The only isssue is that when tax season comes along. My deductions are clustered into 1 big amount. I can’t see how many miles I have to traveled that I ca use to deduct from my taxes, on the amount of money I saved from tracking those miles. Furthers more when I add supply and food expenses that also gets combined into the grand total of how much money I save. It doesn’t separate the different categories of deductions that I’ve made. It groups it all together and there is no way for me to see exactly how much money I’ve saved from Miles alone and how much money I’ve saved from supplies food etc. because when my accountant asks how many miles I’ve driven I can’t give an exact answer when they ask how much money you’ve spent on supplies I can’t give an exact answer because the grand total is clustered into one giant number of how much money I’ve saved. So this app needs to organize itself in the way that when people choose a category for deductions he can separate it so the user can identify specifically how much miles I’ve driven how much they’ve save from those total miles and from other categories how much money they spent on supplies how much money they can save based off those deductions they can make to just make it easier for when tax season comes around.
Not bad has some issues
After a year of use now, while I’m driving the app keeps closing unbeknownst and to me. By the time I have to switch from GPS to look at other stuff when I click on the Stride app it has closedown so the history of my driving and keeping track of my exact miles, it just draws a straight line for the last place it said I was at and to where I’m currently at now.
So I’ve been using this app for about a year and a half now. For the past four months it’s been shutting down on its own. It’s open but running in the background as I’m using maps in the foreground. I’ll occasionally click on Stride as I’m driving and it’ll be reopening and not accurately tracking my miles. It’ll have a random line going straight from the point when I shut down to the point I reopened it (by reopening it I mean clicking on the app that’s already open to check my miles to find out they close down while it was open). So it’s a little frustrating, it’s about 65 to 75% accurate. It’s a a good program overall but unless you continuously switch between the apps, this app randomly closes down if you will, but it’s still open just not accurately tracking your miles.
