10 Best Car Apps for Smartphones
Augmented Driving — $2.99
Available for: iOS
Let's say you own an older car. Perhaps it's something that predates front collision and lane departure warnings, and you think you're missing out. Augmented Driving provides those features along with programmable speed warnings.

Augmented Driving relies heavily on visual data coming from the camera, and it's surprisingly accurate. Some alerts, like the lane departure warning can be tiresome since the app doesn't recognize when you're signaling, but you can disable its audible alarms. We found the front collision warnings functioned well, as they could be user-adjusted to the driver's preference. As with the Witness Driving app, you'll need to purchase a windshield mount separately. Setup instructions were well illustrated and we were up and running in a matter of minutes.
