Awesome Smartphone Driving Apps

Man texting while driving
Don’t Text and Drive!

While it is never a good idea to use your smartphone while you are driving, there are a handful of smartphone apps that can greatly improve your driving experience. Here are a few:

GasBuddy

Ever fill up at a gas station and head down the road to see another gas station offering considerably cheaper gas? Say goodbye to that horrifying experience with Gasbuddy, an app that will easily help you find the cheapest gas in your area.

Spotify

There are a lot of music streaming apps out there, such as Pandora and Google Play, but Spotify is one of the best. The free version permits shuffled streaming, while the Premium version costs $10 a month and allows you stream pretty much any music you want.

XLR8

Does your neighbor speed by your house often in his loud sports car? Why not get some revenge (in a fun, safe way)? The XLR8 app connects to your car stereo and uses the accelerometer of your vehicle. As you accelerate, you’ll hear engine sounds from your favorite sports car.

Waze

Waze is a “community-based traffic and navigation app.” Users log the site of traffic jams, allowing other users to avoid them. Users also constantly update maps, meaning that Waze offers the most up-to-date navigation.
