As you probably already know, there are many awesome car-related apps you can get. Some are especially helpful when traveling to or through larger cities. Here are a couple of our favorite apps for when you are in high traffic or unfamiliar places, including one for driving and one for finding your parked car and monitoring your parking meter:
Waze differs from other car apps because it is community driven. The app allowers users from all over the world to report accidents, police traps, construction, traffic jams and more to assist with traffic and navigation. Maps within the Waze app get updated immediately when sudden changes or disruptions to your route occur. The app has other fun features too including the ability to report gas prices and options to connect with others in the Waze community.
Honk is a car-finding app that also has a handy parking meter timer. The App will also show you helpful locations of nearby gas stations, ATM machines, and more. We really like this App in particular because of the parking meter timer. The timer displays right on your smart phone’s home screen, so you don’t have to worry about closing in and out of the app to keep checking how much time is left on your meter. We also like that it combines the car-finding feature with the parking meter timer, all in one handy app!
While these are just two of our favorite car apps, there are plenty more out there you may find useful! Do you use any car-related apps on your smartphone or tablet? Which do you find more helpful?
