Mobile apps are slowly changing the world we live in, from how people interact with each other, to how they drive their motor vehicles. Here are some apps that will allow drivers to hit the open road with renewed vigor.
The Augmented Driving App will finally give drivers important information that could prevent accidents. By mounting the phone to your windshield, you can find out the following distances of the vehicles and get a sense of what other drivers are doing.
It also offers real-time evaluation of your driving based on distance to other vehicles, lane keeping, and speed. Downloading the Augmented Driving app only costs four dollars but for that price you can get a renewed sense of security and a new perspective on driving.
After a long day at the office, a tiring day of shopping, or a night out with friends, the last thing you need is to forget where you parked your car. It seems to happen to the best of us at the worst of times, making life more difficult than necessary. iCarPark is a great app that solves this problem and allows the user to save their parking location with just one tap.
If your GPS is slightly off, you can make adjustments to the pin to be more exact. You can make brief notes of your parking spot in the app and record how long it is since you parked there. This app makes walking around aimlessly in a parking lot a thing of the past.
Beat the Traffic
True to its name, Beat the Traffic can help you cut down on your long commutes and look for ways to cut down your time on the road. Best of all, it will also alert you If there are any road obstructions or detours. Traffic is easily one of the most stressful things about driving, and Beat the Traffic can considerably lessen that stress.
This great, straightforward and easy to use app will make any motorists life easier. aCar helps you manage everything to do with your car through a simple interface, simply enter your vehicle’s information and the app does the rest.
It can make some very useful calculations for you, such as cost of running your car per day and per mile, it will record each time you bring your car in for maintenance, tell you how much it will cost and will even remind you when your next check is due. If you travel for work, aCar can even figure out what kind of tax deductions you are eligible for. This is a fantastic app for everything car-related.
