Top 10 Mobile Apps for Car Owners


Quote:
Along with playing Angry Birds and taking pictures of your cat, smartphones are incredibly useful for car owners, offering free apps that can help save both time and money.

Hereís a list of apps that we find the most useful when it comes to driving and car ownership. Many apps on this list are at least available for both Android and iOS handhelds, while some also support BlackBerry and Windows Phone devices.

Finally, we should point out that while many apps are easy to use, it isnít safe to use your smartphone while driving. Instead, pull over and check your phone or give the device to a passenger while you keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.

If I had an unlimited data plan, yes I would use Waze (that's the only reason why I don't).

Gas Buddy, I don't use all the time, but I do have it, and do use it every now and again.

around me? meh, if I were a bit more social maybe
Yelp? no.
I don't have AAA so nope lol
Never heard of Beat the Traffic, but probably very similar to how waze functions.
iwrecked? what a shocker of an app name.
same with the next fixit whatever.
Trapster... another perfectly fine reason to just use Waze.

That said, the one app I will add to this is Car Minder for iOS. I've used that app for YEARS, and love it.

ive used trapster before just to see the hype. it was ok for a little bit but it was pretty off, meaning the distance was terrible and when i knew there was say a radar light it wouldnt go off, and when there wasn't anything it would go off.

now the only apps i use when driving are ones to stream music while i drive on the highway and all i need to do is hit the button on my steering wheel to change the songs
