What is the history and popularity of the app?

TalkCarWash was created to give consumers and professionals a place to communicate and educate one another about car care. The site was intended to provide a friendly, welcoming environment that would encourage user participation in discussions and answering questions. The site has a few future plans, including a buyer’s directory, e-tradeshow and streaming video uploads for classified postings.

What are the differences to other apps?

TalkCarWash.com is a helpful resource, although it doesn’t really offer anything new. Users can find a community of users who are knowledgeable and tap into their collective knowledge through the discussions page. The site also offers classifieds, which are also not a new concept but one that can be very helpful.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Although there is helpful information and a bit of potential on the Talk Car Wash website, the design really leaves the user desiring more. The blue site header consists primarily of a banner advertisement. The grey menu bars just under the header work well, although other areas of the site just seem bland. A few icons or images would be helpful to breath life into Talk Car Wash.

How does the registration process work?

A new visitor can join the Talk Car Wash community by clicking on the black “Sign up” link in the upper right hand corner of the homepage (just under the blue header). The plain registration form requests only the bare minimum information, including a username, email address, password, and terms of service acceptance. After entering the information and clicking the green “Sign Up” button at the bottom of the form, the user is taken to their account page and can begin exploring Talk Car Wash.
