Ratings and Reviews
App shows promise...
Straight forward layout. Under the maintenance section a "notes" field would be very helpful to include details of the service performed. That would be a general catch all but adding other fields or a drop down for standard services such as oil changes, brakes front/rear, transmission, tire service, battery, alternator, etc.
Developer Response ,
If you tap under the Maintenance log icon you can add notes to maintenance reports. Thank you for the review.
Very Helpful App
This app is very close to what I was looking for. Like all “oil change” or vehicle maintenance apps, the reminders are date-based. I’ve seen people complain that they’re not “distance” based, like every 3,000 miles but I’m curious how people expect that to occur. Your phone is supposed to know if you’re walking, running, on a bike or driving? At what speed does is kick in? If you’re going 5 mph in a parking lot, what then? Is it supposed to know if you’re in your car? What about someone else’s car? Are you on public transportation? If you’re that worried about your car, then change your oil every 3 months. If you’re that worried about saving money; change it every 3 months with “economy” oil.
Anyways, there is room for improvement as the UI could be more intuitive. You can’t assume all people are willing to explore an app, they often need to be hand fed. No ads is nice. I don’t see how running this app could require a lot of time, but I’m very empathetic to providing a service that benefits only them, and yet people expect it to be free or dirt cheap (e.g. Healthcare).
Not sure what others are doing but I was looking for an app that could keep relevant info readily accessible...such as type and quantity of oil, filter model number, spark plug model number, tire pressure and any other specifics. Definitely for more than one vehicle. I have 6 vehicles to maintain, would be nice to not have to crack a different book just to get that info. This app doesn’t appear to keep any technical maintenance related info. If it is there, I could not find it cause the app UI is not intuitive.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
