To be perfectly honest, a list of apps like this is difficult. Mechanics usually have a workspace that has everything they need. This includes tools, lifts, flashlights and things like that. There aren't many use cases for Android apps in a mechanic store. There are quite a few, and we've got that list for you right here. Here are the best mechanical apps on Android.

Car Fault Diagnosis

Car fault diagnosis shows different problems with cars. There are a variety of categories for different types of issues. Most mechanics know roughly what the problems are. However, an app like this can be useful for troubleshooting if the problem isn't immediately obvious. The app is very easy to use. The user interface is not confusing or cluttered at all. This should help mechanics find the info they want quickly. It is certainly among the best mechanical applications.


OBD Car Scanner

OBD Car Scanner is one of the few mechanical apps that everyone should try. It has support for over a dozen standards, including OBD, OBD-2, and others. You will need to purchase a separate device in order to run the app. The device communicates with this app on your phone via Bluetooth. It's a neat way to modernize the code scanning process. Also, it helps make everything a bit more portable for use outside of the store.



Torque is another car scanner app. This one is quite simple. It connects to a scanner device via Bluetooth. You can then see the scan codes on your phone. It has full OBD-II support. The app can take measurements such as engine fault codes, performance data and more. The app is also customizable. You still need to buy the Bluetooth car scanner. However, this application works very well in displaying these codes.



We're getting to this one a bit. Udemy is an online learning platform with a ton of different courses. Some of these courses involve auto mechanics. Mechanics generally know how cars work. However, taking occasional measurements can keep the brain sharp. The courses are relatively inexpensive, although some can go up to $50. The app allows you to watch video lectures and view the various instructor files. It's good for what it is, even if it's not what you normally think of when it comes to mechanical applications.



YouTube is another great resource for mechanics. There are about ten tips and tricks, videos, tutorials and how-to videos for car mechanics. Mechanics probably doesn't need ones that show basic things like the evolution of oil. However, there are dozens of tutorials on rebuilding engines from scratch. It can be quite useful. YouTube is free to use with advertising. You can remove ads and get some extra features if you choose YouTube Red.
