Keep Track of How Much Your Car Truly Costs with Car Logbook

It’s a very well established fact that cars are expensive. In addition to the hefty initial investment, there are all sorts of recurring expenses such as fuel, parking, insurance, service, and so on. And let’s not even get started talking about the world of additional expenses and speeding tickets once you start modifying your vehicle. Luckily, there’s now an app that helps you track and visualize just how much you’re spending on all of your vehicles so that you can figure out whether it’s all worth it.

Just as its name implies, Car Logbook by XDA Forum Member txdrive is a fully featured car log that keeps track of your fuel ups, mileage, and various expenses such as service, parking, tuning, and so on. It is then able to generate reports and notifications that let you know how much you’ve spent on your vehicles over time, as well as what makes up the bulk of your car expenses. The app supports multiple vehicles, and it even lets you create notifications that appear based on the car’s odometer or the date.

If you’re been looking for a very full featured car log that will help you better keep track of how much your car truly costs, head over to the Car Logbook app thread to get started. The developer has also published the app’s source code over on his GitHub account for all those wondering how he made the app or ideas on how to make it even better.

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
