Moditech has done it again! Free Extrication App! Well kind of Free! But not really Free!

Moditech the people behind the Crash Recovery System have stepped up to the plate and hit a homerun by offering a version of CRS on the iPad. The app named iCRS Standard USA was released on the iTunes app store on November 18, 2011 for low price of FREE! Yes free, to try the app out.  Now for the catch, because anything that is free has one.  The “free” download is just a few vehicles to test out the iCRS Ipad app.  If you want the full app you have to fork out the cash for a subscription which is $499.99 a year.  At that price level you can bet most of us firefighters are going to pass but it is a ton cheaper than the original CRS.  However, if your department can swing it you do get weekly updates which is how fast things can change.  Automakers can and do implement changes anytime during the model year run especially if it can save them money.  So test drive the free app and let me know what you think!

 

Moditech has set the industry standard in my book in regards to vehicle extrication information. Many automakers have used Moditech to develop Emergency Response Guides (ERG). If you don’t follow Moditech’s Facebook page you are missing out! The Moditech guys post pictures of vehicles all of the time and ask their readers a question about the picture. Check it out below! While you are on Facebook make sure you also follow the BoronExtrication.com page!!

  1. Android app in the works?

  2. It is *NOT* free.  The company is quite clear about it in the App Store description.  The “free” download comes with a few sample vehicles to try out the app, but then you must pay the $500/year subscription fee to actually be able to use it.

    • Like all fine print, the information is in the details!

        Dear ffsmitty, the app is indeed not free, it is our full database that we also sell in America at the same price for the Windows platform. With this app we make the database also available for the iOS platform at a same rate. We do launch a cheaper product for the iPhone only. It will be launched soon. 

        iCRS Lite for iPhone is based on the Crash Recovery System Lite Edition, which has been available for Microsoft Windows operating systems for several years now. The software has been adapted to be used on the iPhone with some additional features that are just available on this device. In respect to the limited screen size of the iPhone, some functions of the iCRS Standard Edition for iPad are not available in the version for the iPhone, such as the interactive background information and photos of deactivation procedures or the ability to hide and show the roof, side and seats of the vehicle. Therefore iCRS Lite for iPhone can be offered for a low price, which would also allow individual emergency responders to always carry the worthwhile vehicle information in their pocket.

        The price will be $ 14,99.
