If you're a business owner or employee that has to track your mileage on a daily basis, there are a plethora of apps available to allow you to manually keep track of your driving, but wouldn't it be better to use the built-in GPS in your phone to automate this tedious task?

An app that does this very thing is called "TripLog GPS Mileage Tracker" and it puts the smart back into your smartphone.

Triplog can also track parking fees, fuel costs, tolls and other common driving expenses for a more complete trip report.

An excellent feature of the app is that it simply require you to plug the phone into a power connector or use your Bluetooth connection to automatically start tracking your mileage once you go more than five miles per hour.

It also automatically stops tracking your mileage, when you disconnect your phone from power or from your car's Bluetooth, so it eliminates a lot of the human error.

The basic features of Triplog are free with optional premium features if you feel they are worth spending money on.
