Automilez: app tracks mileage automatically through GPS

The days of tracking mileage on a pad of paper are over, but the days of using your GPS to automatically track, log, and organize mileage are officially here.



Simplifying mileage tracking

Remember when you had to pull out your mileage log and write down your mileage before and after any driving that could be a tax writeoff? Remember then having to do calculations over time and hoping that your math was right and that you were getting your taxes done properly? Those days are over. Officially.

There are many mileage tracker apps, but Automilez stands out for enabling iPhone users to simply keep their GPS on and automatically capturing and logging mileage without having to do math. Genius! With a simple click of a button, it generates detailed mileage logs, offering the mileage substantiation needed not only for taxes but for business expense reporting.
