One of the great things about mobile devices is, well, the mobility! I always have my phone with me. So an app that helped me keep track of car maintenance was a no brainer. aCar helps me keep track of fill-ups, mileage and regular maintenance tasks. All with a clear interface and great Pro options.
aCar really shines in what you can track. There are so many cool things you can do like fuel type, station locations, payment methods and more. The maintenance tasks are very customizable too. I like to drive about 4,000 miles on an oil change. aCar let’s me set that and then reminds me when I get to that point that it’s time to visit the lube lab. Brilliant!
If you keep track of business miles, like I do, the aCar is perfect for you. Tell the app the details when you leave and when you arrive. You can even add notes like who the customer is that you’re visiting and why. Then, everything is exportable at the end of the month when it’s time to report you results to your supervisor.
Finally, aCar has a great backup utility in the Pro version. I simply back up to Dropbox or send myself an email with the aCar data file and I know my data is safe. That is peace of mind well worth the $5.99 price tag.
This is one of those apps I use at least weekly. It’s better than a notepad in a car because I can track data in any vehicle I ride in, not just the one with my notepad in the glove box. Check it out and let me know what you think.
