Mobile App For Quick Tech Access

The Eastwood Company recently introduced a new, free mobile app for iPhone and Android smartphones that provides hobbyists instant access to Eastwood's video library, tech library, blog, live chat, social media, and exclusive in-app coupons. With the Car Cam feature, users can submit pictures of their project, cars that were spotted at a car show, or shots of products in action.

The new Eastwood app provides a convenient way for hobbyists to get information to solve problems that are encountered while working in the garage. “With access to live chat, users can get answers to their questions while they are working on their vehicle,” said Nick Capinski, Eastwood Senior Content and Engagement Marketing Manager.

Through the app, users can watch how-to, event coverage, and restoration and repair videos, upload and comment on project photos, chat with Eastwood tech experts, access Eastwood's full library of tech articles, receive instant savings with in-app-exclusive coupons, and connect with Eastwood and other hobbyists.

The iPhone version of the Eastwood mobile app is available at the Apple App Store and the Android version is available on Google Play.
