The popular iPhone mileage log application, MileBug, has been updated to include the IRS 2012 tax deduction rates. The IRS has actually only changed the Medical/Moving rate, decreasing it by one-half cent. The rates for 2012 are as follows:
* 55.5 cents per mile for business miles driven
* 23 cents per mile driven for medical or moving purposes
* 14 cents per mile driven in service of charitable organizations
MileBug now incorporates these rates for the period of January 1, 2012 and forward. For those that have different rates due to geography or employment, these rates may be edited in the Presets tab under Types/Rates.
Back in 2008, just 2 weeks after the iPhone SDK was announced, plans were started for the development of MileBug. It eventually went live in the App Store on August 25th, 2008 as one of only 2500 apps then available in the store.
Over the past 3 years, MileBug has enjoyed some recognition:
1) In January 2010, MileBug was highlighted in the What’s Hot section of 57 App Stores worldwide.
2) Also in January 2010, MileBug rose to be the #1 Finance app in Ecuador and #2 Finance app in the United States.
3) Featured in the Apple’s WorldWide Developers’ Conference (WWDC) banners both in 2009 and 2010.
4) The MileBug logo appeared in the front window display of the Apple stores in San Francisco and Salt Lake City.
Popular on the iPhone and iPod touch, MileBug was released for the Android and Nokia/Symbian platforms in the summer of 2010, and Nokia/Qt in Spring 2011.
To make next year’s taxes that much easier, and the tax returns that much larger, MileBug helps those driving their own vehicles for business, or other reasons receive their reimbursement and/or tax deduction. From small to big business, from realtors to direct sales consultants, MileBug continues to serve those needing a mileage tax break.
“I have used this now for a year and it has been a lifesaver.” – customer review
“As a realtor, I am always going somewhere. This program makes it extremely easy to track my miles for tax purposes.” – customer review
“Milebug saves you time and money; and is a MUST have for any business owner.” – iReviewiPhoneApps
In the U.S., the IRS business rate for 2011 (July-Dec) is 55.5 cents/mile. MileBug for the iPhone/iPod touch helps people track their miles and provides emailed reports for easy submission to employers, accountants, and the IRS.
“MileBug is a mileage tracker for your iPhone or iPod touch that makes it super easy to … track your mileage. This is great if you need to report your mileage to your boss … the [IRS] … or for any personal reasons.” – AppStoreApps
“In my job, I need a way to track mileage for work trips around town. MileBug does a great job of providing a really simple (and IRS friendly) method of tracking my trip logs. I really like how I can export the reports to email for reimbursement and reporting.” – The Apple Blog
Inside the MileBug app is an option to select kilometers instead of miles. From within the Presets, users can define custom rates for business, charity, medical, and other categories. If you get one rate from your employer for reimbursement, and another rate from the IRS for your side business, you simply create two different business rates.

The Gamma Project today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of GiftShopper 1.1, a major update to their stylish app for collecting, organizing and sharing your gift ideas. The app tracks your purchases and ensures that you stay within your gift giving budget. It’s ideal for Valentine’s, Christmas, Hanukkah, birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, graduations and other special events. GiftShopper will keep all your gift ideas and spendings clear, organized and instantly comprehensible. You will never forget a person or a gift again.
GiftShopper has been featured by Apple as New and Noteworthy in the USA, Canada, Australia, and several other countries, and it’s been consistently praised for its simplicity and effectiveness by users.
This update allows users to share application data across multiple devices. Now you can maintain your person and gift lists on your preferred device and then simply e-mail it to another device. The GiftShopper-specific attachment will be opened and imported by the app. If similar data entries are detected, the app intelligently let’s you decide how to proceed. There are two options:
1.) Skip existing entries, and only merge those which are not yet on the given device, or
2.) Overwrite everything.
GiftShopper shines in its simplicity of usage and design, while providing an outstanding user interface. With a clean user interface, the app includes no instructions for use; all operations are intuitive and trouble-free.
You can easily manage your gift lists in four simple steps. When first starting the application, you get a straightforward instruction to enter your gift budget. The app automatically retrieves your home currency from your device’s settings, so you don’t ever have to bother with it.
Once your budget is set, another hint will instruct you to add the persons you want to buy gifts to. The UI to enter the recipients is very lean and easy to use: you can type in a name, or select a person from the iPhone’s Contacts, which is a handy addition. After adding the recipients, composing the gift list is also very simple: just add the gift’s description, price and a photo – none of these are mandatory, though. For example you might want only to record the photo of the planned gift as an idea. When assigning photos to a gift you can take a photo or load an image from your Photos Library.
Once the gift list for a given person is ready, you can mark items as purchased by simply tapping on the circle icon. If all items are marked as purchased, the app will automatically mark the given person with a visible checkmark. This way you can instantly see whether you’ve bought all the planned gifts for everybody.
The main UI contains all the information you need to track your gift or souvenir spending. You can instantly see how many gifts you’ve purchased, and how much money you’ve spent by person and in total. The progress bar on the top shows how much you’ve spent from the planned budget, and it turns red if you’ve exceeded it. A nice feature is that you can share your gift lists via email. The email includes your gifting database as a nicely formatted html, in plain text and csv – the latter format can be edited in your preferred spreadsheet application.
* Very easy to use – even during shopping
* Add persons directly from your iPhone’s Contacts
* Manage your gift lists in an intuitive and easy way
* Easily edit, reorder or delete persons or gifts
* Assign photos to your gift items or ideas
* Simply tap gifts to mark them as “Purchased” / “Not yet purchased”
* Share your gift lists via email (html, csv and plain text)
* Export / Import application data across devices
* Polished user interface, optimized for retina display
* Full iOS 5 compatibility

Limited Securities today is proud to announce the release of iCurrency Plus for iPad 1.2.7, an update to their Finance app that allows users to easily track currency values from more than 150 different currencies listed. The update leverages the new technology introduced in iOS 5, Notification Center. Now, users can see currency rates in the Lock Screen or compiled for viewing in the Notification Center. Even with the app closed, or the iPad locked, users can see the latest rates of their selected currency pairs. The app provides real-time updates for both traders and individuals.
Because there are many good reasons to track currency rates besides investing, iCurrency Plus has been designed to provide real-time information for both individuals and investors. Whether users are following a particular currency pair in anticipation of an upcoming trip, getting the best rate possible for this month shipment abroad, or tracking long-term trends as part of portfolio management, the app supplies immediate, authoritative numbers that are easy to access anytime, anywhere.
With the latest update of iCurrency Plus for iPad, users can set up two different types of notifications. Selecting “Show Price in Notification Area” allows users to get up to date information on the currency rate changes in the Notification Center, no matter what the currency rate is. Alternatively, selecting “Performance Notifications” sends recipients notifications about a change of a rate when its performance has decreased or increased more than a pre-defined percentage over a period of time.
* See currency rates in the iOS 5 Notification Center
* Add currency pairs of choice (not only currencies versus the USD)
* See the change in value over a period of time of your choice
* Get notified in the app if this change is larger than a percentage you choose
* The same notification can be sent via push: no other app has this
* See several graphs to check trends: daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and yearly; all in one screen
* Convert prices on the spot, quite useful if you are traveling
* More than 150 currencies listed
* Intuitive interface, very easy to use
* Currencies can be added per request on the fly, no need to update the application
Thanks to the new way that iOS 5.0 treats notifications, users can even get the latest rates on the currencies of their choice on the Lock Screen of their devices. The first notification displayed after the phone is locked comes up as a bubble with the notification message. Should the user receive many notifications, they are displayed in a scrolling list on the Lock Screen. In both cases, sliding the icon on the notification from left to right opens the app where additional charts and details can be viewed.
In addition, notifications received while working in another app are displayed at the top of the screen. Users can continue to receive messages as each notification rolls over to display a new one. Recent updates can be accessed directly from the Notification Center by touching the top of the screen and swiping down while using any other app. Chosen rates are displayed, as well as other important notifications.
Finally, iCurrency Plus for iPad includes an integrated Currency Calculator function to instantly convert any amount of one currency into another. Five different colored lights beside each currency pair instantly indicate the status of any notifications. And daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly graphs are all available on the same screen.
“If continual updates and quick access of currencies is important to you, I think you will find no other app on the App Store that provides it as easily and effectively as iCurrency Plus for iPad,” stated Miguel Mateo on behalf of Limited Securities. “I also believe that Apple’s new Notification Center is already changing the way people receive and respond to different events throughout the day.”

The data can be send by Mail to any email address and the user can access the data from within iTunes on the computer. After entering the vehicles to be tracked, the user does a one-time setup in the preferences.

Also selectable is the degree of accuracy: Odometer (whole numbers only or one decimal place), Fuel measurement (two or three decimal places), and Cost (two or three decimal places). Data is always presented in the user choosen units, the units can be changed and Fuel Log Evo will convert the data immediately into the selected unit of measure, allowing for easy comparation between the possible units of measure.
