Apps for the Modern Day Drivers

Technology has been a major part in almost every aspect of our lives and this includes driving. While there are a lot of mobile apps that have been created to make driving easier, here are some that we recommend downloading:

  1. Waze

    • Waze is a GPS navigation software app owned by Google. It works on smartphones and tablet computers that have GPS support. It provides turn-by-turn navigation information and user-submitted travel times and route details, while downloading location-dependent information over a mobile telephone network. Wikipedia
  2. MileIQ

    • MileIQ is an American-based technology company that develops a mileage tracking and logging app. The app uses automatic mileage tracking to calculate mileage while driving for business purposes that can then be used to report for reimbursement and potentially a tax deduction with the IRS, being attributed as the first mobile app to passively track such data. MileIQ has been compared to Fitbit for driving[3] and has been discussed in national business publications that include Fast Company, Fortune, and Forbes. Wikipedia
  3. GasBuddy

    • GasBuddy is a tech company based in Boston that operates apps and websites based on finding real-time fuel prices at more than 140,000 gas stations in the United States, Canada, and Australia. They also sell software products to convenience store owners via their B2B initiatives (formerly known OpenStore). The GasBuddy app is a GPS-based application program for smartphones and tablets which provides prices of nearby gas stations from user-submitted data, as well as through partnerships with other companies and directly from station operators. The app has Android, BlackBerry 10, and iOS versions. It also includes GasBuddy’s partnerships with Wex (called “Pay with Gasbuddy”) and ParkWhiz for parking. Wikipedia
  4. ParkWhiz

    • ParkWhiz is an e-parking service that allows users to book parking spaces before reaching their destinations. ParkWhiz is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois. It allows drivers to locate and purchase daily, monthly, and event parking through its web and mobile applications. Users of the ParkWhiz service are able to compare prices, locations, and amenities. After drivers select a spot and process their payment, they are given an electronic parking pass that can be printed or presented on a smartphone or tablet. Wikipedia 
  5. RoadTrippers

    • Roadtrippers is a web based software application and mobile app that helps travelers plan road trips. The software lets users discover independently owned points of interest in the United States and Canada. Once a trip is saved, it can be synced to the Roadtrippers iPhone app, for turn-by-turn navigation, and further local discovery while on the road. Wikipedia
