(Newswire.net — December 14, 2018) — Think back to the first time you put your hands on a steering wheel. Do you remember the feeling of the wind on your face and the freedom in the air? As we get older, driving yourself to work and back home gets repetitive and can make you lose sight of how much fun driving really is.

The smartphone era has really changed the way people live their everyday lives, and this applies to driving. The best app development companies are always looking for ways to make daily tasks more efficient and even enjoyable—driving is no exception. Here are four auto apps that will take your driving experience to the next level.

Google Maps

Google has become a household name and it is known for their famous map feature. Google bought the app Waze and enabled features like traffic times into your commute. If you log into your Google account, Google Maps will remember where you’ve been and even your search history. Google Maps is the best navigation app because you can perform a Google search right from the app itself. For instance you can type car dealership in Mechanicsburg, PA and the same results that would appear in a Google search appear on your app.


Waze is an amazing app that allows the user to find different ways around traffic. If you live in a big city, this app is a driving must. There’s nothing worse than going somewhere you are not familiar with and ending up in a long line of traffic. Waze offers shortcuts or other routes that helps drivers keep away from traffic. Waze can also be used to find a scenic route if you’re looking to go on a romantic drive through the country or even just to see some nice real estate in a city you may not be familiar with.


SpotHero is an app that allows you to find a parking spot in a garage, reserve it, and pay for it through the app. This app is a life saver for those of you who have meetings downtown and don’t have the time to drive around in circles looking for parking. This app works especially well for those of you who are looking to eliminate the need for driving in circles looking for parking for an event, or even an interview in a busy urban area.


There are a lot of gas finding apps, but none can compare to GasBuddy. GasBuddy has saved a lot of people in emergency situations and it is a great app to have on your phone. GasBuddy locates the best price for gas in your area. This user friendly app has a large database that includes almost all of the gas stations across the U.S. When there is an emergency situation like a hurricane, GasBuddy alerts users to gas stations that have gas and power.

These apps take your driving skills to the next level because you will know where you’re going, be familiar with the price for gas, alternate routes, and even have a parking space ready for your visit. You’ll be worry free and stress free driving down the road in your own little automotive euphoria.
