Greetings. Welcome to my second app review. Today’s app is also an Android only, app (sorry iOS users), and it’s one that I have been using ever since I’ve been an Android user. It was among the first apps I downloaded and I haven’t seen a reason to try any competing apps yet (though I probably should just for review-sake).
This nifty app allows you to track your vehicle(s) fuel usage, maintenance, and expenses of your vehicle. It will show you very detailed statistics of each vehicle you are tracking including: Running cost/day, Distance/day, Total distance, Avg MPG, Total Gallons, and many many more. It gives you informative charts showing you trends of gas prices, your car’s MPG and more. aCar helps people like me by reminding you when you need to change your oil, rotate your tires, and when to do standard or yearly maintenance. Now I can’t blame my dying car on my forgetfulness anymore; the blame will have to go to my negligence and blatant ignorance of clear notifications. And if this app isn’t user-friendly enough, it allows you to import your cars’ stats from many other car tracking programs such as Gas Cubby (iOS), MPG (PalmOS), Fuelly.com (online), FuelFrog.com (online), Vehicle Manager (Windows), just to name a few. Along with the ability to import your data, you can also export everything in full, or choose to just export your statistics if you’d like. You can even export your statistics to an easy-to-read HTML format. The only thing this app doesn’t do is do your car’s maintenance for you. I guess that will have to be in a future update.
