Thanks to Gas Cubby from App Cubby

gcBig thanks to Gas Cubby for being this week’s sponsor. This handy app records milage for you, which is fantastic if you’re often taking business trips. I used to use a notebook for this, but I’d either misplace it or forget to transfer a certain trip to my spreadsheet. Not any more, as Gas Cubby lets me export directly to an Excel-friendly format via email.

The app also records your service history and even offers service reminders reminders, which is great. You know those plastic clings that the mechanic puts on your windshield? The ones that always fall off? Forget about them. I won’t forget to get that 7,500 mile checkup done when Gas Cubby reminds me.

The app’s search feature is also well-implemented and there’s ample support for international units, like MPG (Canada), MPG (UK), MPG (Imperial), L/100km, gal/100mi (US), gal/100mi (Imperial), km/L, km/gal (US), km/gal (Imperial), and mi/L, for all of you folks who drive on the wrong side of the road.

Do you like charts and graphs? I know you do. Tilt your iPhone to the landscape orientation and view data on your vehicle’s average MPG, typical gas price you pay, automotive expenses and service expenses. Nice!

Gas Cubby has been in my travel folder for years. It’s fast, good-looking and, most importantly, useful. Go and grab Gas Cubby now.

Huge thanks to App Cubby for being this week’s sponsorDavid Barnard and his crew build iOS apps that I’ve been using for years. Apps the I depend on, like Trip Cubby.

Trip Cubby

My job requires me to accurately track mileage across two vehicles. Before the iPhone descended upon us, I tried to use a notepad and paper. It was invariably in the wrong car or missing entirely.

At last, David released Trip Cubby. This super little app lives on my iPhone, which never leaves my side. I use it to record mileage, sorted by vehicle, gig, vendor and so on. Everything is backed up wirelessly via sync and can be exported via email as an Excel-friendly .CSV file. You know who really likes that? My accountant.

It also features beautiful charts and graphs, IRS compliance, customizable rates, stats on paid/unpaid milage, etc. But it’s more than pretty. Trip Cubby is, as I said, a tool that I absolutely depend on.

Gas Cubby

Gas Cubby records milage and adds service history and even reminders, which is great. Those plastic clings that the mechanic puts on your windshield always fall off. At least mine do. Yet, I won’t forget about that 7,500 mile checkup when Gas Cubby reminds me. The search feature is also well-implemented and there’s ample support for international units, like MPG (Canada), MPG (UK), MPG (Imperial), L/100km, gal/100mi (US), gal/100mi (Imperial), km/L, km/gal (US), km/gal (Imperial), and mi/L, for all of you folks who drive on the wrong side of the road.

Go get them!

Trip Cubby and Gas Cubby are both available from the App Store for $4.99.
