RepairPal Mobile 2.0 for iPhone Now Available

The new RepairPal mobile app—with its innovative design, enhanced features, and web sync capability—puts the power of the leading online destination for auto repair and maintenance information into the hands of mobile users.

EMERYVILLE, CA, October 26, 2011 -- RepairPal, the leading consumer online destination for auto repair and maintenance information, has announced a significant update to its mobile app for iPhone users.

RepairPal Mobile 2.0 includes the same noteworthy features as the original award winning app, including the best repair and service estimator on the market covering nearly all makes, models, years and zip codes, as well as a location-aware repair shop finder. Additionally, with improved performance and usability, as well as enhanced roadside assistance, iPhone users can now manage their car from the app.

According to Art Shaw, CEO of RepairPal, “Thanks to the proliferation of smart phones, managing life has become easier. There are apps for virtually any work or lifestyle need. The RepairPal mobile app is a powerful resource that puts information and resources into the purse or pocket of any driver, such as where to go to get their car fixed and what is a fair price to pay. If you’re on the road and your car needs work, there’s no better source than the RepairPal app.”

RepairPal 2.0 is the latest update in a series of online and mobile enhancements that offer the most accurate auto repair and maintenance information available—anytime, anywhere. The new app now provides consumers with impartial, fair price estimates, the most comprehensive auto shop directory, and expert insights and advice from certified mechanics and shops. Additionally, RepairPal 2.0 brings roadside assistance into the 21st century by allowing the consumer to pay only when they actually need the help, instead of paying an annual membership fee.

“We believe everyone can benefit from the variety of features, information, and resources now available in RepairPal’s mobile app. We’re especially interested in feedback from our female users. As early adopters of technology, women rely on mobile apps to help them manage both work and life, and as CEO, CFO, and COOs in business and at home, we think RepairPal is a great app that can help them make informed decisions and manage costs.”

RepairPal for iPhone is available for $4.99 at RepairPal.com/Mobile. RepairPal 2.0 for Android will be available in early November.
