App Review: aCar

Hello and welcome to another Android App Review.

Today, I’m reviewing aCar, an application that allows you to monitor and record all of your car’s servicing, fuel and general costs.

Well, where do I start? This application is quite possibly the most fully-featured car-based app I’ve ever used on Android. And the best part is that 90% of the functionality is completely free!

Let’s get the basics out of the way first – fill ups. aCar records all your fill ups, along with what brand of fuel you used, the octane rating, total cost, cost per litre etc etc!

Once you’ve got a few fill ups under your belt it will then be able to give you detailed statistics on how much your car is costing you on fuel, and how much you’ve spent in a month, last month and over the past 3 months.

It’s quite amazing just how detailed this app is, and this review only scratches the surface of the functionaility available.

Another neat feature is the ability to keep a service record for your car too. Want to change the oil? Record the date and cost and aCar will keep track of that too, AND will give you a reminder at an interval you define to let you know it’s due again!

My only gripe is that because the app has so many features, it can be quite easy to get lost in there (it took me a good half an hour of playing about before I was 100% on what I was doing) but this is the only problem I can really find with it, and once you have got to grips with it, it really is an invaluable tool!

  1. I use this. It’s great. I love the depth it can support but without being overly complicated if you just want to bang in a quick fill up and be on your way
