instaVIN, a vehicle history report provider, announced the release of their patented free mobile application which provides fast access to mobile history reports. Users can quickly run a free VIN check and obtain an instaVIN Vehicle History and Title Report by scanning the VIN bar code, loading from existing photos or entering the VIN manually. instaVIN pioneered the original mobile VIN scanning solution and it is now available in the Google Play store for Android devices for free. The vehicle history app is also available in the iTunes store and optimized for iPhone 3GS or greater, iPod and iPad.

instaVIN reports provide DMV title history, salvage, insurance total loss and other critical vehicle information to help identify title problems prior to purchase and expose the "worst of the worst" events that can affect a vehicle's safety and value. This may help uncover potential buyer or seller fraud. Dealers can use the instaVIN mobile app to scan VIN numbers and run reports when at auction and to access their instaVIN account. Existing account credits can be used to run reports and new history report credits can be purchased at Credits can also be purchased directly from within the app.

instaVIN reports include title data from NMVTIS (The National Motor vehicle Title Information System), which provides real-time title and salvage information. Over 100 data points are checked on every report.

instaVIN reports also include additional sourced and proprietary information not available to other history report providers including theft data, sales listing information, open lien data with the financial institution disclosure, impound and towing events and minor accident data where available. instaVIN reports are also compliant with California's salvage sticker law, which mandates that dealers provide a NMVTIS based history report to buyers.
