By on Dec 2, 2010 at 2:09 am

Cedar Rapids, Iowa – KB Productions today is pleased to announce Car Care 1.40, a major update of the popular fuel economy and automotive maintenance tracking app for iPhone and iPod touch. The new version features a beautiful, improved user interface. Data input is more fun, more attractive, and easier. Faster data entry helps during cold winter months, minimizing time stood in the cold by the pump! Also new: full Retina Display support, iOS 4.2.1 compatibility, separate estimated city and highway mileage.

Car Care: All your vehicle maintenance records in your pocket. Car Care is the easy, automatic way to track fuel economy and service maintenance for every car in the garage. Car Care is well reviewed, earning 4.5 out of 5 from Macworld, named a “Best Car App” from Edmunds.com, and over 450 four-and-five star App Store ratings.

Car Care 1.40 introduces 3 major new features:
* Faster, sexier, easier fuel entry
* City and Highway fuel economy calculated separately
* Vehicle statistics email reports

Fast, Attractive, and Easy:
A completely new visual experience for entering fuel makes it fun and easy. The streamlined design reduces the number of taps necessary to enter a new fill. Data entry is more visually interesting and appealing with the new dashboard view, including a large photo of the vehicle. It’s the most visual, customizable, and attractive fuel entry screen of any iOS fuel economy app. The iPhone 4 and iPod touch Retina Displays are fully supported with beautiful new high-resolution graphics.

City and Highway Driving Automatically Separated and Calculated:
Auto dealerships advertise a vehicle’s fuel economy as two separate numbers: city and highway. Car Care now automatically calculates these values separately. Without any extra input from the user, the app determines which fills were likely driven on the highway, and which were in the city. This works for fuel entries done far in the past, recently, and future entries.

Sell Your Car Faster and for More Money: Export Stats Reports:
Recording statistics helps a car’s owner, seller, and potential buyer. Demonstrating regular maintenance and attention to a car’s history can increase resale value, speed up the time to sale, and increase a potential buyer’s confidence in your used vehicle. Car Care 1.40 can email the car’s statistics report, quickly allowing a potential buyer to get important information. Statistics export also includes separate city and highway fuel economy numbers. These city and highway numbers can be even better than a car dealership’s mileage estimates, since Car Care’s numbers are based on real data.

Car Care supports:
* Multiple vehicle tracking
* All vehicle makes and models
* All fuel octanes: Regular, Super, E85, Diesel, or enter your own octane
* Graphs: fuel economy and fuel prices
* Geotagging: See a Google Map of fuel entry locations
* Service reminders: any vehicle maintenance, any reminder interval
* Email export: detailed fuel and service data can be sent to a spreadsheet for further detailed analysis
