Plate dater

Plate dater



First time ever on your iPhone/iPod/iPad, THE application that will hopefully become the Swiss Knife for every car enthusiast, professional or just curious people (taking the price into account, what else). Main features:

- License plates: Search for its issue date, from 1900 to date, no matter if its spanish, french or british.

- VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) basic decoding, WMI coding and model year in this initial release.

- Tyre information: Enter the codes in any tyre and receive loads of information about it (manufacture date, rim size, diameter, speed index…)

Additional features:

- Automatic database updating as new license plates get issued and published, in a completely unattended way or forcedly from the 'About' screen, tapping the date's button. Weekly updates will be the standard frequency.

- iPhone 4 retina display fully supported, with high resolution background photos showing cars for the same time frame than the license plate being searched (do not reflect the actual car, they are just samples!!!)

- Favourite license plates management.

- Help screens from every function screen, helping you to understand the application and the data you must provide.

- Double search system, a nice, graphical one with a rolling picker and a faster and more functional one keying text in directly into a text box.

- The license plate issue date gets 'automagically' searched as soon as you have keyed in a valid license, according to the selected country license plate forming rules. The application takes into account those rules and 'force' you to search only for valid license plates up to where we have been able to implement.

- For spanish license plates, it takes into account re-issues of old licenses, as it happens with GErona and GIrona, for example, where GE4050B and GI4050B are both valid and belonging to the same vehicle.

- Even it gets automatically updated via Internet, it works fully offline, no need at all of Internet access to perform plate searches, VIN nor tyre data.

- Fully translated into English, French and Spanish. The app self configurates on startup depending on your device selected language.

Among the many uses that everyone may find to such a tool like this, we developers have come out with these:

- Everyone looking to buy a second-hand vehicle, now has an easy and portable way to check the real vehicle age against the seller's reported one, no Internet required!!!

- How many times, in a trip, a car show, a movie..., have we seen a really old car and we wondered: How old may that car be??? This question will no longer remain unanswered from now on...

- Bet a beers' round with the pals to 'The right date', randomly choose a license plate around you and make your best guess. The worst guess, pays the round (or drinks it all, rules are user selectable ;-)

Contact the developer to ask for improvements or report problems in the support email or the App Store (in the latest we won't be able to answer, though). We promise to answer and take your suggestions into account, as you can see in this 3.0 version.


Enjoy the application and rate it honestly, Thank You!!!
