We believe that apps should be made with care, look beautiful and be simple to use. We are passionate about it, we think of it as making art.
That's why we created RememberTheOil, a powerful service reminder and car maintenance log. We have paid attention to details to ensure ease of use. Just by updating your vehicle mileage, we estimate and set reminders for your upcoming services. Aditionally you can track your daily mileage and fuel efficiency.
Please visit our website (http://roundedapps.com) and check out our demo to see the app in action.
And this is just the beginning, we will keep improving it because "Art is never finished, only abandoned" - Da Vinci.

What's New in Version 2.1
My fav car maintenance app
I've used a couple other car maintenance apps and this one seems to be my favorite. I use it when I fill up to get a gauge of my cars mpg. I also use it to track all of my cars maintenance like oil spark plug, air filter, cabin filter battery, and brake changes.
I also dump in other non car maintenance like home hvac air filter change, and gutter cleaning etc... I wish this app allows for adding notes per maintenance job along with adding categories for a job type.
Also I can confirm back up feature works. I had my iPhone issues throughout the years and have always been able to backup and restore my data. I would recommend taking advantage of Dropbox backup so as to not rely 100% on iCloud (Just in case u ever have any iCloud specific issues - but that's just my opinion)
Could be better
This app tries to be too fancy without implementing some basic functionality. It is difficult to enter information because you can't see where the cursor is placed. You just need to type and the numbers show up.
I entered a bunch of fuel fill up information. I put in the mileage and the gallons filled. Unfortunately I also have to put in the trip counter because the app is too stupid to subtract the current mileage from the previous mileage and calculate the difference itself. I can understand if you miss a fill up and then use the trip counter for a better MPG calculation. But if the trip counter is missing it ought to do the calculation itself.
(Update) I was entering historical fill up information when it wouldn't calculate the mileage between fill ups. Now that I'm entering fill up data live it is automatically calculating the trip counter.
UPDATE: data loss.
Everything works as expected on my 5S. This app has become indispensable. I have every fill-up and maintenance item for 2 vehicles stored with this app. The charts are useful. I basically can't think of any additions it needs, except maybe adding the ability to attach a photo for each vehicle? The data backup features are very nice and offer some peace of mind, as well. It's a must-have for people who like to keep good vehicle records.
UPDATE: it’s been 2 years since I wrote this (no updates since apparently) and I have to say I’ve lost data a couple times. Lately when I add a fill-up it will crash and then the next time is unable to calculate the trip odometer properly. I like this app a lot and I still think it’s the best in its class. I plead with the developer here and now: please fix this app!
