Ontario, 22nd August 2020

Even though you should only use your phone hands-free while driving, and even then only when you absolutely must, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t plenty of apps out there that can help enhance your driving experience and perhaps even save you money along the way. Here are five of the best apps that can make the time you spend in your car a little bit easier.

1. Gas Buddy

Location: US and Canada
Platform: Android and iOS

One of the biggest outlays for car owners is gas, however, the Gas Buddy app might just save you some cash – and help you find your nearest gas station. All you need to do is enter your state, zip code, or city and it will find the cheapest gas stations in your area. The great thing about this app is that the results come from other gas buddy users. If you are the first one to enter a gas station price near you, then there are chances to win prizes.


2. Plugshare

Location: Worldwide
Platform: Android and iOS

For those who plug in instead of fill up, we’ve got you covered too. Plugshare is a great app that allows you to search for charging points near you. They have access to over 300,000 points worldwide through a number of providers, so you’ll always be able to find a charging point in the area. It has a number of neat features such as a filter that allows you to only search for chargers compatible with your car, as well as a map that will show if there are points near your destination. It will even tell you if the charging points are free or paid.
