Ron Rockwell and independent iOS and Mac developer Marcus Roskosch have announced a major update of their app Repair Database for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Repair Database 1.01.03 for iOS contains more than 100,000 repair solutions for everyday electronics like TV, CD-Player, PCs, Printers, Laptops and more. With its integrated FCC, part- and cross-reference databases, this app is a must-have for technicians and people who like to fix it themselves.
After its successful launch early 2012, there is now a major update available that adds a huge library of service manuals to the app. By this, RepairDB is the first and only app on the App Store providing such a huge information source for all kinds of technicians.
"The idea for this library was born in talks to our loyal users", Ron said. "Users often had difficulties to identify the right PCB, the location of the defect part or even to open a device which can sometimes be quite tricky as companies usually don't like the device to be opened by other people."
With this update, the app already provides a huge amount of Service manuals which can even be viewed offline, without an internet connection, which is often helpful, when being on-site. Moreover, users can use the app to request for service manuals that are not yet included. "By offering this service, we will be able to continuously extend our library for our users", Ron said.
Parallel to this update, Marcus and Ron have re-launched their new website RepairDB online, which now offers video demos of the app and a user forum.
