Mobile apps have certainly revolutionised the way we live. From keeping us entertained, to helping us in the daily grind these apps are available in every walk of our lives. Today there are apps which are created for making our journeys by car safer, entertaining and informative. Below are some of the car apps which work on the Android Operating System.
If you like driving fast, or sometimes you just forget that there might be a speed camera around the corner then this app will work as life saver for you. Radaroid shows you a map which will provide locations of places where there might be a speed camera installed for catching over speeding vehicles. Speed cameras are potentially placed on the stretch of roads which are accident prone zones. So, this app also lets you be aware of such situations.
Just like those fancy sports cars which come equipped with a cool looking heads up display, now even you can have the same using the GPS HUD. GPS HUD is an app by Android which, with the help of the GPS system installed in your phone, will provide you the exact location and the speed that you are travelling at. Also, the same will be reflected in the display which can be cleverly reflected on the windscreen. Thus giving you a feel of using an HUD.
For those of you who have heard about the “take me to my car” app, this app might look similar. In case you have forgotten the location where you have parked your car, use this app for finding the exact location where you had “dropped anchor” and “docked your vessel”.
How many times have you had the urge of checking the text message or e-mail that gets delivered on your cell phone while you are driving? I am sure that happens almost all the time. In such instances, there is no more need to risk your life by reading the messages or e-mails while driving, nor do you need to pull over and waste time. Simply download this app and it will read your messages and e-mails to you.
Another app which lets you drive safely is the app known as Car UI (User Interface). This app will change the “by default” interface on your phone with large icons so that while you are driving, you can easily identify the icons on the phone without having to bring it closer to your eyes.
Next time you are travelling somewhere, and due to heavy traffic it is taking a little longer than usual then you can keep yourself and others entertained by some general knowledge about that place by using this app. Geo Reader reads out loud the info about the place that you are moving through, and thus increases your and others knowledge.
UK Traffic Checker
By simply entering the start location along with the end location on this app, you can find out the kind of traffic you might have to face while taking a particular road. Thus, you can avoid the same and stay away from the traffic using the UK Traffic Checker.
Though the above apps are some of the top 7 apps available for your car, by Android still there are many more available (both free and at a price) which can definitely make your road trip much better and safer.
