App Store Reviews
topherowens, 5 stars:
This is a GREAT app, though the current version crashes at start-up. My understanding is that Apple somehow corrupted the app before the update was available for download, causing the crashing problem with a whole list of apps. I'm confident this will be fixed soon. But it's not the fault of the developer.
I've been using this for about a year now. Although it's not perfect it has the best pictures I've seen yet. I like how they've tried to integrate the "build your own" pricing into this app as well. It helped me buy my Audi and I don't know if any app can do better. Whether you're a price shopping or just a car lover, this is a great app overall!
I have found a glitch though - when you save cars in your "parking lot" and they update the model, it crashes the app when you click on the car. Same thing happens when cars in your parking lot are no longer available, like any Maserati. :( this should be an easy fix and I hope they solve this soon.
Besides these minor issues, I love this app. Better than cars.com and other apps in the marketplace.
When I finally get a car, it will be based upon this great program.
I tried to delete cars from the parking lot but could not.
Also, it would be nice if I could choose the body style such as coupe, cuv, mini van, etc and pull them up from each car dealer.
I look forward to buying a car in the near future.
I will not look at a vehicle without checking with this program.
Thanks for such a useful and fair evaluation of each vehicle.
