Rate Test Drives Easily With Test Drive Assistant

Posted by Jennifer Allen on November 7th, 2011

Buying a car is frequently pretty enjoyable but it's also often stressful. Making such an expensive decision is a complicated endeavour, even more so once a few test drives have been conducted. Having spent a while test driving numerous cars, I can safely say it's easy to get confused as to what was so good about which car. Enter Test Drive Assistant in an attempt to demystify all that.

Test Drive Assistant is an app that provides 11 basic test drive related questions that users can answer as they test out each vehicle. Then, the app provides a rating based upon the answers given and, at a glance, users can see which vehicle is best for their needs.

Further functionality is provided through the ability to add more questions as well as images of the vehicle, allowing for side-by-side comparisons of the test driven motors.

It should take out all the stress and worry for those who plan on test driving a number of different vehicles over many days.

Test Drive Assistant is out now priced at $2.99.

MyCarCare Makes Keeping Track Of Car Maintenance Simple

Posted by Jennifer Allen on September 27th, 2011

Keeping track of everything that needs doing to maintain a car can get a little overwhelming, which is precisely why there's an app for that. MyCarCare remembers everything any automobile owner could possibly need to know.

Users can store numerous vehicles and their information within the app ranging from cars to motorcycles and scooters. Information can then be added to include maintenance information such as when the last service was performed, how long since the tyre pressure was checked or the oil and water in the engine. The user can keep track of upcoming deadlines such as when the car tax or MOT is coming up to expiration time and needs to be conducted once more.

Expenses can also be tracked from within the app allowing users to keep an eye on just how much their finances are going to be stretched by their vehicle in the coming months. It's all available in one very convenient package.

MyCarCare is available now priced at $0.99 for the universal app.

Is This Bentley The World's Most Expensive iPad Dock?

Posted by Jennifer Allen on September 14th, 2011

Aren't iPad docks predictable? Always looking roughly the same and not very exciting to show off to friends and family? So how about this one for a change? It's called the Bentley Mulsanne. Oh yeah, and it's a car.

Yup, one of the world's most luxurious cars, the Bentley Mulsanne, has a new interior that includes two iPads in the back. Built in the UK, the interior in all costs an extra £85,000 on top of the basic price of £205,000 for the car alone. That makes the whole thing around $457,000.

It'll be worth it to someone, though, with the iPad area including full internet access and the possibility to stream TV shows or movies to a large drop down LED screen. Each iPad also comes fully equipped with a bluetooth keyboard dock and the devices fold away into the back of the seat when not in use. It's very cool stuff indeed with even a Mac Mini thrown in and an iPod Touch controlling the audio system for the car.

If you've got a spare half a million lying down the back of the sofa, this could be the ideal media solution with a neat car thrown in. Oh and mind if I come along for the ride? Thank you in advance!
