Rev your iPhone

It may sound like I'm about to tell you about a racing game for the iPhone, but no... it's not a game. In fact it may very well be one of the tools you've been waiting for a long time

I'm talking about Rev and Rev Lite, two applications that will appeal everyone interesting in knowing a little bit (actually, quite a bit) about their vehicles that run on the iPhone.

The Lite version (free) uses just the GPS and accelerometers presente in the iPhone to trace your course and your vehicle accelerations. But the full version is a lot more interesting, as it allows you to interface your iPhone to your vehicles OBD-II port via a WiFi module.

Through the OBD-II interface you can access all your engine data, including:
  • Vehicle Speed
  • RPM
  • Fuel Consumption
  • Engine Coolant Temp
  • Fuel Pressure
  • Throttle Position
  • Intake Manifold Pressure
  • Air Intake Temp
  • Fuel Level
  • Barometric Pressure
  • Fuel Trim
... among others.

You can also use to check why a "Check Engine" light showed up on your dashboard and reset your engine parameters.

Available at the App Store, just one touch away.
