Remember life without a bunch of cool apps? It might have been a lot quieter but it’s never been so much fun! Here’s a bunch of drive apps that’ll help you on your travels and put a smile on your dial while you’re at it.
Wish you were driving a Lamborghini instead of your current wheels? Well we can’t find any car apps that will magically transform your ride but this cool little app makes your car sound like an exotic supercar (at least from the inside). Just connect your phone or tablet to your stereo and XLR8 realistically responds to your acceleration, braking and cornering. The app comes with a classic V8 muscle car as standard, with upgrade options for a NASCAR engine, Ford GT40, Ferrari and Lamborghini.
Carcorder is a professional app for recording your trips. It integrates video recording, GPS, routing, over speed warnings and augmented reality into one impressive package. The lite version is free but doesn’t come with all the features or include much storage or recording time so we recommend you upgrade to the paid version once you’ve taken it for a test drive.
Text and Drive
Keep your eyes on the road and get this handy little drive app to read your emails out loud. You can dictate a reply or create a new email with Text and Drive’s speech to text technology.
$5.95, available for Android.
This handy little app gets updates from the community as well as traffic monitoring satellites to let you know real-time traffic conditions so you can avoid unexpected traffic. It’s a helping hand on your commute and it’ll even give you community-based advice on where to buy the cheapest fuel.
If you combine business with pleasure and need to log your trips for tax purposes then this is the app for you. Easily record your personal or business journeys using GPS and then publish your logbook at the end of every 12-week period. No more messy paper logbooks to complete!
CamOnRoad is a free dash cam application for your smartphone, transforming it into the advanced car DVR with GPS navigation features. It’s an awesome video-navigation system that comes with speed camera notifications, and it captures video in background mode so you can still use your phone as usual.
The CamOnRoad app can store your video on the internal SD-card of your smartphone or into secure cloud storage – you get 2 GB of cloud space absolutely free when you register (that’s more than 3 hours of your road video).
