This weekend I’ll be heading to a Ford Mustang show where my partner will be showing off his awesome Bullitt edition Mustang. Since I clearly have cars on the mind (I’m a fledgling gear head myself) I thought it’d be a good day to recap the best of the best car apps.
Android, iOS, Blackberry, Windows Phone
This awesome app helps you find the cheapest gas around.
Keep a record of your repair history, get a sneak peek at local shop prices and connect to roadside assistance anytime.
This app will help you document the damage if you happen to get into an accident. It provides checklists to make sure you cover everything, enables you to create PDF crash reports and has a photo feature for image documentation. Plus it lets you connect to nearby help, like 911, your insurance agent and a taxi company if you need a lift.
Keep a running log of mileage, fuel cost and consumption and maintenance. Over time you can pull up stats like average cost per month, yearly mileage and average cost per mileage.
Not your everyday-user app, Torque Pro lets you “see what your car is doing in realtime, get OBD fault codes, car performance, sensor data and more! Torque is a vehicle / car performance / diagnostics tool and scanner that uses an OBD II Bluetooth adapter to connect to your OBD2 engine management / ECU.”
Looking for an app that does it all in one? aCar gives you a way to track your fill-ups, fuel mileage, maintenance, trips and car related expenses all in the same app. You can even use the app to track multiple vehicles – great for those with a healthy classic car collection.
Beat the Traffic
Android, iOS, Blackberry
Like to drive fast and don’t want anyone to get in your way? Beat the Traffic gives you real time road and traffic conditions so you can avoid construction, pileups and generally sluggish routes.
