Gone are the days when smartphones were owned by a select few. These days smartphones come with a plethora of applications or 'apps' that have changed the way we live


From communication, online banking, to even telling you how to mix your drinks and tie your tie, apps today come in various shapes, sizes and degrees of usability. Petrolheads too have a wide array of choice, and we’re here to sift through the chaff and find the 10 top apps that are a must have for any serious car enthusiast in India. 


So without further ado, and in no particular order, these are the 10 apps that will bring something unique to the table, and will definitely enhance your driving (or riding) experience. 


1. CarHome Ultra: 

This phone docking app is ideal for when you’re on the move. The software bundle comes equipped with a variety of useful functions like a speedometer, a compass, information about your current location among other things. Just hit the relevant button and the app will tell you all you need to know so your eyes stay on the road. The convenience this app facilitates makes it an integral part of your automotive app arsenal.

2. FuelLog:

In India, you can’t have a discussion about vehicles without mileage cropping up in the conversation. Keeping that in mind, FuelLog is a perfect fit for any car or bike owner who’d like to know how economical his vehicle is. Simply input the readings from the odometer, the measure of fuel you fill, and its current price - the app does the rest. It calculates everything from you mileage after each fill up to how much you pay for fuel on a monthly basis. You can even input your miscellaneous driving costs such as servicing charges and toll fees, and the app collates all this information and gives you a figure for how much you spend on your car every month. 


Platform: Android         Cost: Free for 30 days, Rs 131.85 for the full ‘pro’ version




3. iOnRoad:

With ever more cars on the roads, you can’t be careful enough as you manoeuvre through the congestion. Having another eye on the road would make driving much easier, right? Well, you can do just that with iOnRoad. Your smartphone’s camera, GPS and sensors, through the medium of this app, combine and evolve into a sophisticated collision warning system such as the ones you would find in swanky European cars. This app sounds an alert when it detects a potential collision, allowing you to take evasive action.  


Platform: Android         Cost: Free ad-supported version, Rs 269 for the ad free version
