THE story of


A few years ago, I had a car with an android head unit, it worked perfect! But I travel often for work and many times I forget if my car's documents are ok. 

I was forgetful and I wanted something very simple and foolproof, an android app on my head unit to start as soon as the car starts and show me if all the mandatory documents are ok or not. I didn't find any... so I decided to build one, but I'm not a programmer, I'm just a hobbyist... 

So I went to and started learning how to develop android apps. I fell in love with building apps right away! 

I was unsure I can do it... but then I kept learning... and I really encourage everyone to learn and try!

I will leave here a few screenshots for you to see how ugly was the initial try... and how it changed as I understood more and I learned more.

FunFact: The name of the app is made from two words: auto + tovarăș (companion).

See here the change in the design of the app as I've learned more and better.
