These days there are apps for everything from fitness, gaming, health, finance and planning. Whatever want or need a human can think of, there’s usually an app that can make it easier, simpler, cheaper or more accessible. Today we’ll be focusing on driving, because, well, it’s our call and over 63% of the UK population has a license and reports using it frequently so we figure that’s a pretty good place to start. So without further ado – here’s our list of the top 3 best apps for drivers!
RepairPal The world of mechanical engineering is for most, a mysterious and dark art. If something goes wrong with your engine, your electronics system or your carburetor, you’ll almost definitely need to seek the help of a professional mechanic. This is unnerving for a few reasons: you don’t know what’s wrong with your car and you most likely don’t know your mechanic, so you don’t know how much the repairs should cost, if they’re all completely necessary or if you’re being taken for a (metaphorical) ride. RepairPal will provide you with the average costs for specific repairs to your specific vehicle as well as helping you to find a skilled and trusted mechanic nearby to carry out the repairs.
YourParkingSpace If you’ve ever spent more than ten minutes searching for a parking space on a busy side street or a packed-out parking lot then you’ll know how frustrating and stressful not being able to find a free spot can be. YourParkingSpace has over 250,000 parking spaces to choose from throughout the UK which you can book in advance to make sure that you’re never caught in that stressful situation again.
Google Maps Okay, so this one might be a little obvious, but it’s so ubiquitous with driving these days that it couldn’t NOT get a mention. In the old days, people had to rely on bulky and confusing map books to get them from A to B. These days, all that’s required is a postcode that you pop into the search bar to find your route so that you can feel safe in knowledge that you can confidently cruise over to your destination with your navigator getting carsick next to you.
