Driving can be stressful, but paying for gas can be even worse. Fuel Monitor, a free app from Adir Genish, is meant to ease some of that pain.
Fuel Monitor runs in the background and uses the iOS device’s GPS location functions, along with your car’s model information, to monitor driving excursions and display fuel consumption data. It also offers up tips on how to cut down on fuel consumption as well as assists with finding parking spaces, locating your car after it’s parked, and an “Accident Kit” should anything unfortunate happen along the way.
And really, who doesn’t want to cut down on their refueling costs?
Car Trip is an inexpensive app that helps users while driving. It keeps track of the exact distance till the destination as well as plans the most advantageous route to take to get there.
For the fuel conscious, it also calculates how much fuel is required and how much it’ll cost the driver, according to the average speed of the car. It might be a feature already available on some cars but for those of us with older cars, it’s an extremely useful concept for long trips.
The app is laid out in a simple manner and even keeps track of the next five days of weather reports which is useful for planning ahead.
For the planning obsessive who’s working on a budget, Car Trip is an ideal way to organize an all important long distance trip.
It’s out now, currently priced at $0.99, before returning to its original price of $1.99 soon.
