I’ve just received a press release saying that The Mail on Sunday (no, I don’t read it) awarded the MyCarCheck app the Number One Cash-Saving App.
I’m a bit puzzled by this as it doesn’t directly save you money, but it does allow you to do data checks on cars you are considering buying which could save you from getting into a mess.
Like an HPI check, the app checks a car’s provenance; it’s history, date of registration, whether it’s been written off or has finance outstanding on it.
It’s an app I use regularly, as it’s always on hand with my iPhone. I just type in the car’s registration number and I get a report immediately, and my iTunes account is charged just £2.99 for each check. OK, it’s not as comprehensive as a full HPI check or similar but it’s a start.
