Tired of Tracking Business Miles by Hand -- We Have an App for That

TripAlly for iPhone Uses Built-In GPS to Create Your Mileage Log

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - March 18, 2010) -  New iPhone application TripAlly tracks, calculates and records miles driven to create the ultimate tax-deduction mileage log. Whether you need to track miles for your small business, charitable contributions, for employee reimbursement, or simply because you want to know, TripAlly can help.

TripAlly follows your entire trip using the iPhone's built-in GPS -- not just your starting and ending address -- and stores mileage reports by purpose, month and year. Created by the National Association for the Self-Employed, TripAlly is the perfect solution for real estate agents, sales and delivery people, and anyone needing to record round-about routes for tax and reimbursement purposes.

Start each trip by simply touching the green "Start" button. The GPS pings location every .3 miles for an accurate record of the entire trip. At the trip's end, assign a trip purpose, save it as a favorite route for easy repeats, and view your day, month and yearly mileage total. TripAlly even allows for manual trip entry by address.

Best of all, TripAlly is free to use on a trip-by-trip basis. Download the app and TripAlly will show a single trip's miles, allowing you to keep track of the miles you drive in your own mileage log.

For a full mileage log, TripAlly can track everything for you. Register to get all TripAlly features -- categorize your trips, assign favorite routes, add manual routes, view trips by month and year, and print reports at your convenience.
