Tyre Pressure App - IOS

Postby Karl » Wed Oct 02, 2013 12:24 pm

I stumbled across this novel little app on my daily browse.

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tireche ... Id=1503186

It uses the phones camera to detect under inflated tyres and is accurate to 2psi apparently.

I can't comment on how well it works as I have a superior Nexus 4 phone, anyone here like to have a go and report back?

No comment from me on using apps to take pictures for pressure checking. Your "daily browse" indeed.

Haven't got an iPhone but I'll stick to my new pump and gauge as I like to get mine to accurate and slightly ;) higher than normal levels :lol:

Oh lord... I have to admit I haven't checked my tyre pressure in ages... In fact, it's quite possible they were last checked at the car's pre-registration check-up in April.
Next time I visit the gas station, I'll check the tyres also, see how they're doing... Wouldn't be surprised if they're underinflated, actually (and still I'm getting excellent mileage!).
As an extra bonus, they're actually WINTER tyres, which I decided to keep on over the summer because they're useless in the snow (well, I don't like them personally, they don't feel right to me), so I decided to ruin them in the summer heat and buy new ones for this winter. Oh the irony, if my mechanic tells me in november that they're still good to go for the winter... I swear I'll crap my underwear laughing.
