Everyone seems real horny for it, I should check it out.
IMO, if you own OBDII Ford's (and many Mazdas) and work on your own stuff, it's a necessity.

Unless, of course, you have access to Ford's IDS software or are willing to pay fairly large dollars for other software.

In this case, you just about need it.

Also, it beats out my snap on Solus for Ford.

It's a phone app as well as a computer program correct? I don't have a pc or laptop or anything.

I havnt got around to trying the unplug/plug back in trick yet, or using the dash trick as RonD suggested. A horrid case of vertigo followed by a long weekend in potato country riding wheelers has taken all my time. Ill get to it!

There is a phone app. It's not as full featured as the PC app, but it will read most codes if you have a quality OBDII adapter. You can also run some minor tests and monitor live data.
