    "As the world moves to living on the smartphones, it's unsurprising that those obsessed with or required for tax purposes to document everything about their car(s) would want an App for that. This one seems to fit the bill quite well. Be aware it can separate you from some of your hard earned money with in-app "opportunities." But it makes sense that when it comes time to sell your car, if you've got fabulous records, you'll be in a much better negotiating position."

    "Been using Drivvo for both of my cars to keep track of my mileage, fuel and car maintenance that i have done and need helping me save cash because of all the records that i can check and track. BTW, i am using the pro version of this so i have more features that isn't available in the free version such as no ads and synchronizing my data in different devices. "

Did you know?

Did you know windshield wipers or windscreen wipers on the car were invented by Alabama woman Mary Anderson in 1903? Anderson’s invention came after she visited New York City on a snowy day and noticed a streetcar driver had to get out and continually clean off the windshield of his car by his hand to see the road. After her visit to New York, she returned to Birmingham, where she started creating a design for a device with a rubber blade that was operated by the driver from within the vehicle using a lever. The so-called “Window Cleaning Device” was awarded a patent number 743,801 on November 10, 1903, by the United States Patent Office. Anderson tried to sell her design to Canadian manufacturing firm Dinning and Eckenstein to produce the device for the emerging motor car industry, but the company believed it has no commercial value and declined to mass-produce it. Despite the failed attempt to sell her device, Anderson’s patent ran out in 1920 and windshield wipers eventually became ubiquitous.

Today, windshield wipers are now an important part of most vehicles. Wiper blades now come in a wide variety of shapes and size, while some are heated to help keep the windshield clean in snowy weather conditions. Although Anderson did not earn any money for her invention, at least she was given credit for it.

    "I love that it gives me the possibility to edit the list of maintenance items and not only change their names and add new ones but it also allows me to specify scheduled maintenance intervals for each thing as i want! It gives you alerts too and has a pleasant easy to use interface. It handles fuel economy too but thats where it lacks. I had to find another app for that because this one doesn't graph the data over time and i kind of wanted that feature. But other than that it is great!"

    "I have a vehicle that I use for work that I am responsible for the maintenance, but it is tax deductible at the end of the year, I always felt like I was forgetting receipts and other random costs that I spent on my work vehicle. I started searching for a solution that would work with something I always had on me while I waited for my car to be worked on, and came across Car Xpenses. This app has definitely saved me money when I file my taxes, and does a great job of keeping track of maintenance schedules as well, I really recommend it to people that need to keep track of car expenses."
