These days there is a smartphone app for just about anything you could ever want and need – recipes, banking, workouts, weather, and so on. The list now includes engine lights. You heard right! There is now an app to tell you what all those lights on your car dashboard stand for.
Efraim Dabi developed an app called the iEngineCheck. The app has you enter the manufacturer and model of your car, then it gives you a detailed description of the car’s engine and engine warning lights. But wait! There is more.
Not only will the iEngineCheck app tell you what all of those goofy little lights mean, it will also give you a possible explanation on how to fix the problem. Additionally, you can request to have your car added to the app, should your specific car not be on the app, and you can send information you find on the app to others by e-mail or SMS with just the touch of a button.
Gone are the days of researching the library called the owner’s manual to find an answer to your problem. This nifty little app is just 99 cents through the iTunes App Store. It is currently available to Apple products (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and any other iSomething), and an Android version is in the works.
Come tell us, at South Hills Chrysler Jeep Kia, what you think of the app or share any other fun apps you may have come across.
