Mobile apps a car owner should have

Written by 

There are virtually hundreds of automobile-related smart phone apps, quite a few of which are very useful. If you didn’t know that, find comfort in the fact that not many people do. Here are 5 mobile apps that will help make your car-owning experience a lot better.

1. Waze

With over around 70 million users, This app is the world’s largest community-based traffic and navigation app, one that keeps you updated on current road conditions with available voice-assisted navigation and road hazard announcements.


Without a doubt,most drivers would like their cars to read incoming text messages and speak them out loud to them so that they cannot fiddle with their phone while driving. Good news is that this app is available. It can read anything from Twitter updates to Facebook messages, email and text messages. The advantage is obvious. It leaves your hands and eyes completely free for driving, greatly reducing the risk of accidents.

3. TripAlyzer

TripAlyzer is not free is cost around 500 in Kenyan shillings but it’s an effective app designed to analyze your driving efficiency by displaying the speed, direction and distance. Moreover,it also analyses fuel consumption of your car. Nevertheless, it can also vocally announce various pertinent stats as you drive, such as your current fuel efficiency so that you can make any adjustments deemed necessary.

4. FindMyCar

FindMyCar does exactly as its name suggests. This app uses GPS. It’s a simple app that can help you locate your vehicle in large parking lots. For many drivers, the utility of FindMyCar cannot be overstated.

5. MyMaxSpeed

This app is for parents or guardians who would like to keep closer tabs on their teenage drivers. Teenagers are arguably the most dangerous age group on the road. You might have to be sneaky to be effective with this one. However, MyMaxSpeed has to be installed on a phone that will be in the car – generally your child’s. Using the phone’s internal GPS, it logs the speed and location of the car every five minutes. In addition, you can also program it to send you updates via a text message if the phone travels outside a pre-defined perimeter or speed.

If you are a car owner, you should at least have one of these apps.
