[prMac.com] Bristol, United Kingdom - In these tough economic times of high cost motoring drivers are starting to neglect maintaining their vehicles as often as they should. This is usually a false saving however, as missing those important oil changes or tire pressure checks will likely lead to larger more expensive problems in future. Some simple maintenance jobs lead to immediate savings; For example, regular topping up of air in the tires will help improve fuel efficiency leading to consistent savings at the pump.
To help drivers save money in the longer term the 'Car Maintenance Reminder' iPhone App (featured in The Sunday Times App List in the UK) will remind drivers of those maintenance tasks as and when they need doing, giving the driver one less issue to remember and saving them unnecessary problems at a later date.
Text Message like Alerts :
'Car Maintenance Reminder' triggers text message like alerts reminding the driver of the required maintenance task. Once the driver acknowledges the alert a badge appears on the App icon to act as a reminder until they carry out the task and tell the App they have done so ; This means a Car Maintenance Reminder message is not easily dismissed and forgotten!
"an excellent little app" :
The reminders the driver sets up in the App are completely configurable and can be triggered by the date and/or the vehicles odometer reading. The App can have separate reminders for any number of vehicles. Mic Wright of The Sunday Times in the UK says in his review that the 'Car Maintenance Reminder' is "an excellent little app that makes keeping up with your car maintenance tasks easier".
