Re: Motoring apps
D'oh! This is a case of the new forum thread disappearing - I only noticed it because of seant's recent comment.
As mentioned, the article has appeared in the magazine already (the current edition, P. 24). Wish I'd known, I have a heap of (mostly marketing gimmick) car-related free apps on my iPhone.
I don't think your life will be incomplete if you avoid downloading the various marketing apps (take a photo of your house and park a Porsche in front of it! Pick a colour and see your new Nissan Cube in 3D! Watch BMW video clips!). But here's some which were worth the free download and are relevant internationally.
If you like rallying, then both the WRC and IRC have free apps offering news and results functionality equivalent to the F1 app. But the independent iRally app covers both series so if you only want 1 rally app, that's the one to download.
It would be great if there was a CAR app - if only to allow iPhone users to post comments on articles and in the forum - currently not possible through the iPhone's web browser.
