Ideal for electric car owners based in the US is Recargo, an app that offers users the ability to find electric vehicle charging stations nearby them.
Besides using a simple Google Maps-esque interface to help users find the nearest charging points, there’s also the ability to plan trips according to these stations. It’s a particularly useful feature considering electric charging stations aren’t as widespread as regular filling stations, ensuring that users need never worry about running out of power.
Community features also exist within the app with the ability to view the latest news from plugincars.com as well as share photos through the app. There’s even a Foursquare style checkin feature which could potentially be very useful for electric car owners to get to know other ecologically minded people.
It looks like electric vehicles could well be the future and apps like Recargo are certainly setting out to help this trend develop.
It’s out now and it’s a free app compatible with all iOS devices.
