Auto Care


*****If you appreciate my work so far; please rate and give me feedback. The apps growth is dependent on your willingness to rate and give me feedback.*****

Note: Working on fixing some bugs and minor nuances.

Auto Care is a vehicle maintenance app that is meant for any kind of vehicle owner. No longer will you have to deal with manual vehicle maintenance tracking or using other programs that puzzle you to no end. Auto Care is made to be mobile, quick, intuitive, and educational. I have used excel, programs, and other apps to track my vehicle maintenance tasks over the years but always sought for something better. This is my best effort to fulfill that goal and yours too.

*****

Please note:
Development for Auto Care is mainly at a halt for time being since the developer has been caught up in other projects. This application is free and will remain free for anyone to use. It has some quirks, and they very well may be developed further someday. Just expect the app to remain mostly as is.

*****

Main Highlights:
-No ads
-Add in custom services to your vehicle
-Low battery usage, does infrequent reminder checks to preserve battery and should not impact battery life vs other apps that have more intensive checks.
-Notification bar reminders of services due.
-Intuitive interface that is fairly quick to navigate and enter in information.
-Easily put a picture of your vehicle to identify which vehicle is selected easier.
-Built in basic to do lists to remind of tasks you need to do.
-Fully tracks fuel up information and provides statistics such as costs and MPG.
-Useful statistics and charts are provided and are a work in progress based on feedback received.
-A quick snapshot to see your tracked services in order based on how soon you should take care of the maintenance.
-Educational tips and descriptions on my default generic services that inform you: What happens if I don't do this maintenance? How difficult is it? Where can I find how to do it myself? What is it even? Along with some rough estimates of costs and time on doing the service.
-Quickly track multiple vehicles and switch to them as needed.
-Change the theme to several other provided themes.
-Backup/Restore has never been easier including auto back up functionality.
-Interface is made to enter in information quickly and I am open for suggestions on making it easier and quicker.
-Add pictures of your vehicle onto the main menu and keep reference pictures for tracked services.
