Let’s face it.

 

“There’s an app for that” is just a way of life now.

 

And personally, we don’t think there is anything wrong with that.

 

Especially being that there are so many amazing car apps that can help enhance your driving experience.

 

Whether you know it or not, your smartphone could be the key to a great ride.

 

But with so many apps to choose from, how do you know which ones are the best?

 

That’s where we come in (you’re welcome).

 

Here are four fantastic apps to spruce up your smartphone (and your regular commute).

RepairPal

This app is at your service (literally!)

 

With this app, you can get an estimate of how much a repair will cost.

 

The app bases this information on the type of car you drive and your location.

 

It also can point you in the right direction of great repair shops in your area!

 

This is app is available for both iPhone and Android users.

GasBuddy

This app gives you information on the nearest gas station and where you can find the best prices.

 

This app relies on user-submitted information, so some of of what you find might be dated.

 

But users find that the information puts you in the ballpark of the best offers.

 

Maybe if you download this app you can help refresh the information.

 

You’ll be the GasBuddy hero!

 

Put that on your resume.

 

This app is also available to iPhone and Android users.

Carr Matey

This is not your average car-finding app.

 

This is a pirate-themed car-finding app.

 

When you park, you mark your location on a map.

 

But in this case, it’s a treasure map.

 

When you’re ready to leave, your phone’s GPS locates your “ship” for you.

 

Other features include a parking timer, a recent locations feature, and a compass view that helps guide you through off-road parking!

 

You guessed it: both iPhone users and Android users alike can enjoy this app.

Carticipate

This app helps coordinate your carpool for you.

 

This helps you save money AND reduce your carbon footprint at the same time.

 

Carticipate takes the hassle out of coordinating a carpool.

 

The private social network within the app (without having to share phone numbers or email addresses) takes care of it all for you.

 

You can schedule multiple trips, drivers can post where they’re going, and passengers can post requests.

 

And, like magic, you have just coordinated a carpool.

 

This list is a very small tip of the car-app iceberg.

 

Go out and do some exploring of your own.

 

See what kind of app discoveries you can make of your own!

 

But more importantly, have a better time driving thanks to those little bubbles on your smartphone.
