A simple and effective app to help prevent parking tickets

Is there anything more frustrating and completely pointless for a motorist than getting a parking fine? We all know that half the time it's simply a revenue earner for the company or local jurisdiction and it doesn't seem to matter too much whether you are one minute or one hour over your time limit. Parking inspectors take little notice and the fine seems to be exactly the same. Parking.RIP is a new GPS based app for Android and iOS that helps in a number of ways and makes parking fines history.  More

The best, fastest and cheapest way of getting around town

You might have noticed the kerfuffle that has been kicked up about this next generation taxi application - actually they call it private hire and ride sharing - over the last few months. Uber has been featured on the front pages of newspapers all over the world from New York to Australia. So, why is it causing such a fuss? Well, Uber has come into conflict with Government and traditional taxi companies who believe that there are insurance issues and that both cars and drivers should have to be licensed.  But, the fact of the matter is, Uber appears to be a better system and is ...  More

The safest way to avoid parking tickets

If there's one thing that's guaranteed to put a motorist in a foul mood for the day, it's the parking fine. To be fined hundreds of dollars for simply parking your car for five minutes longer that it should be is, to be quite honest, rather pathetic. To my mind, councils should be putting more of our tax dollars into building car parks and improving public transport than hiring thousands of resolute parking officers to slap a ticket on your car. The fact is, our cities are overcrowded and there are more cars on the roads these days than ever before. If you have no off street parking where ...  More

Navigate your way with simple GPS on your windshield

According to the latest World Health Organization figures, there are about 350,000 people who die EVERY DAY from injuries sustained while driving in low visibility weather conditions. Whether it be rain, fog, heavy snow or just simply the darkness of night, any conditions that impair your normal viewing ability can be downright dangerous. However, where the trouble really lies is when you are in an unusual location and you have to refer to a map to see where you are going. It's hard enough in good conditions but, when you throw in poor visibility, it could well prove deadly. Hudway is a ...  More

Save money and the environment with a more sensible way to carpool

Anyone who has lived in a big city has probably thought about the concept of carpooling every now and again - but rarely do we do anything about it. Governments push it every now and again but there doesn't seem to be a hell of a lot of enthusiasm behind it. One of the biggest drawbacks of previous attempts to put together a viable carpool connection is that you never know who you are going to be giving a lift to or getting a lift from. CatchMyRide is a free social travel application that takes much of the mystery out of carpooling by offering the service to specific organizations like ...  More

While we enjoy the benefits of our device's default energy saving capabilities there are times when it's actually kind of aggravating. Probably the most annoying is when using the GPS system or reading a map. The last thing that you need is for your device to dim out or go into sleep mode when you need it in a hurry.

Stay Alive! is a free, simple and effective mobile and tablet application that is guaranteed to keep your device's screen active when you need it and off when you don't.   Stay Alive! keeps your device's screen up, ...  More

Save big dollars at the gas pumps with this comprehensive car app

We've seen plenty of car and travel apps over the years that can do everything from remembering where you parked your car to tracking gas prices but it's rare to see one that is quite as comprehensive as Automatic. You might have heard mention of this app on a few US news programs of late with one commentator saying that Automatic could do for driving what the iPod did for music. So, what exactly can this app do for the US motorist? Well, it indeed can tell you where you parked you car and track gas prices but Automatic's main function is to help you save money on gas with just a few ...  More

Fix your car with your iphone

If you were a car owner in Cuba you probably won't need this car education application for iOS. So few new cars make their way onto the market in this part of the world that Cubans learn from a very young age how to maintain their cars and keep them on the road. But for the young (and not so young) driver here there isn't that luxury. If something goes wrong with your car the first thing we do is to call our mechanic. But there are a whole bunch of simple things that you could fix yourself if your a little bit of knowledge. How Cars Work is a new car maintenance and education app gives you ...  More

In case of accidents get the black box

I've often wondered why all motor vehicles aren't fitted with a 'black box,' in the same way airplanes are, to determine the cause of an accident or incident on the road. The obvious answer, of course, is money. Those little recording boxes are damned expensive. MyCar Recorder Lite is a free car recorder for your iOS iDevices that turns your mobile into a driving recorder to log events in the event of a traffic incident while still functioning as a normal phone so you can call up the relevant services if an incident or accident arises.   If you are looking for a traffic recorder then ...  More
