I like vanity license plates. I enjoy trying to figure out what they mean. If I didn’t think they were too expensive for me to indulge in, I would buy my own set. Not that I know what they would say, but I would indulge. The app iLicense Plate is about vanity plates. Whether it’s planning your own license plate, snapping pictures of your favorites, or checking out what yours would look like in different states, iLicense Plate is all about the vanity.
The iLicense Plate app does come with a few free backgrounds and one free plate. I want to get that out in the open first. The other plates require in-app purchasing. The App Store details describe each additional plate as being $0.99, which I’m going to come out and say is disheartening. I could understand bundling the other plates into a $0.99 package, but charging an additional dollar per plate is excessive. While the app asks for upgrading the backgrounds as well, I couldn’t determine which were free and which had to be paid for. They all worked for me. I’m only hesitant to say that the backgrounds are all free because I’m certain that someone won’t be able to access them all, and I will never hear the end of it.
All that being said, the app is still fun to play around with if you can be content with California license plates. I come from a state that uses only six characters, so I would be disappointed if I had to make due with a plate that didn’t use all eight characters. Unless you have some unbearable grievance against California, it’s not a bad plate to make the default. As well as using all eight characters, the app also provides a list of pre-made plates that you can use. I chose Batman because Batman is awesome.
If the backgrounds don’t suit your fancy, you can actually take a picture of your own car and use that for your trial plates. You can also use whatever photos you have on your camera roll. There’s an option to take a screenshot for your camera roll once you have your license plate perfected.
