Need an App Recommendation


Hello BAD Community,

As work gets more busy, and pulls me outside of my home office more and more, I need your wisdom! I am looking for an app to track business expense on my phone. I don’t want it tied to my bank accounts. I just want something that breaks down business expenses by category and can track and total them throughout the year.

Does that make sense? I just want to be able to enter the number of miles I drove for a work engagement. Or the cost of a meal out, lodging, etc. It should track the individual entries, and then when it’s time to file taxes next year, just give me a break down of totals by category for entry on my tax forms.

Anyone use or know of any apps like this? I would love your recommendations. Just want something simple.

If you swear by any small business related apps at all, I would love to hear about them. I am definitely looking to simplify my record keeping.

    For mileage a lot of the employees where I work use MileIQ and seem to like it well. I’m not sure about business expenses. We use a paid app program for that, which you probably don’t want to pay for.

      I second MileIQ. I tried using Quicken Books for both mileage and expenses and didn’t like it.

      Ended up using MileIQ combined with an Excel Spreadsheet. I kept a separate business account and then downloaded transactions to categorize them or categorized them in my bank dashboard.

    My husband uses Everlance for his field inspection business and it works great. Can track both mileage and expenses.

So, what do you think ?
