Version 1.4.3 of CarFacts. This version features more animated graphics, changes to the Portuguese and Chinese language graphics, and a lot of under the hood updates.



September 2015

Just completed version 1.4.2 of CarFacts. We're pretty excited about the animated graphics featured in this update.




July 2015

It took longer than initially expected, but, CarFacts has been updated to version 1.4.1. There are a lot of changes in this version, some visible, others not so visible.








1) Spanish and Portuguese language  versions  added!

2) Graphics enhancements.

3) Entry fields cleared when editing begins.

4) In the not so visible category, CarFacts was completely rewritten, in Swift (Apple's new programming language).



July 2014

CarFacts updated to version 1.3.2. Two big changes in this version:

1) international calculations of fuel cost in liters/100km, in addition to mpg, conversion between mpg and liters/100km.










2) Chinese and French language versions of CarFacts.


We are hard at work on Spanish, German, and Portuguese versions. We hope to have these languages available before the end of summer.



October 2013

CarFacts updated to version 1.3.1. This version requires iOS 7 or greater. Besides the new iOS 7 look, previous iPhone users will notice that a decimal keypad is used for data input. This keypad should make data entry easier on an iPhone screen. In case you haven't figured it out, the decimal keypad is dismissed by touching any part of the screen other than an input field.




February 2013

CarFacts updated to version 1.3. This version requires IOS 5 or greater. If you are a current user, the first thing you will notice is that the icon has changed. We added MPGe, HP to KW, and Cubic Inches to Liters conversions. In case you were wondering - MPGe means Miles Per Gallon equivalent. This is a measurement that the Department of Energy devised to measure the  efficiency of  electric cars in terms of how an internal combustion engine of comparable efficiency would perform. We also added graphics support for the iPhone 5 and 3rd generation iPad, and other neat graphics.



November 2012

We are hard at work on the next version of CarFacts and are excited about the new features and new look to come.

Stay tuned!



July 2011

CarFacts updated to version 1.2. This version makes CarFacts a universal app, which means it runs as an iPad app on an iPad, and as an iPhone app on an iPhone. We also changed the user interface so that the answer field for all options is cleared when any field is edited.



July 2010

CarFacts updated to version 1.1, adding miles to kilometers  and kilometers to miles conversions, and a driving cost calculator for electric cars.
