Mobile application developer, Izatt International, has introduced a version of its Apple iPhone mileage tracker mobile phone app, MileBug, for Google Android and Nokia Symbian smart phones.

The app now allows Android and Nokia smart phone owners to keep track of the tax-deductible miles they have driven for business, medical and charity purposes.

The app runs on Android 1.6 and higher, as well as third and fifth edition Symbian/Nokia smart phones. It is available at the Google Android Market and Nokia Ovi Store for $1.99.
Previously available only on the iPhone, the MileBug has been downloaded more than 120,000 times from Apple’s App Store.

“MileBug’s success has illustrated that smart phone users have a real need and demand for a good mileage tracker application,” said Izatt International president and CEO Jason Izatt in a statement. “This need obviously goes beyond iPhone users so we are thrilled to offer the app to customers on the Android and Symbian smart phone platforms.”  

MileBug features include detailed reporting that shows totals by business and vehicle. Users can e-mail HTML and Excel-compatible reports. The mileage tracker is able to keep tabs on mileage for multiple businesses and multiple vehicles, and keep a running total of deductions with each addition to the user’s trip log.

Customizable settings allow users to choose either kilometers or miles, and define customized rates for business, charity, medical and other tax write-offs. Users also have the ability to set up frequent destinations and purposes within the app. Presets also allow for trip recording with a few finger taps.
