Top 5 driving apps to try in 2017

Did you know that there are loads of smartphone apps you can use to help you on the road? We’ve compiled a list of our five favourite driving apps to try in 2017 – just don’t use your phone whilst you’re driving, or you could face a fine or conviction!

Insurance Revolution find out what driving apps are around.

DriveGain – £3.99

Do you find yourself disheartened by the amount you spend on petrol each month? If the answer is a resounding ‘YES’, then you’ll love this little app! DriveGain helps you save fuel as you drive by recommending what gear you should be in, and giving you tips on how to save fuel as a result.

It’s not just a money saving app, use DriveGain and you’re helping to save the planet, too! Knowing which gear you should be in reduces your CO2 emissions, and allows you to travel further before needing to stop at a petrol station.

Glovebox – 69p

There are few things more annoying than having an endless array of paperwork in your vehicle’s glove compartment, now you can store all of this important data in one handy app! You’ll still have to keep the paperwork for emergencies, but storing all of this information in your smartphone will alert you to any approaching dates you need to know about (i.e. MOT, road tax).

Petrol Prices Pro – £2.99

Another one for drivers wanting to save some cash! Petrol Prices Pro uses your location to give drivers a list of fuel prices from nearby petrol stations. You could end up saving a bundle!


What’s more annoying than rising petrol prices? Not being able to find where you’ve parked the car! Now, wandering around aimlessly searching can be a thing of the past with iCarPark, which logs you and your car’s location so you can find your way back easily. It even logs individual spaces, so multi-stories and huge open-plan car parks aren’t an issue.

TomTom – £50

Although pricier than the other apps featured on this list, the TomTom app is still cheaper than the brand’s standalone satnav. With the TomTom app, you still get to use all the features of the satnav, plus European versions for those who are jetting off on their jollies!

      In the recent time, we have observed that the mobile technology is pouring onto the market as mobile marketing has emerged the most successful platform for companies to expand their business globally. To get targeted visitors and attract as many customers as possible, it becomes imperative for businesses to have a user-friendly website that is fully optimized for mobile. At the time of developing a mobile website, you think of typography and decide not to experiment with font colors and types. You also think of content and choose it cautiously that would engage and entertain visitors. Even, you also predict your visitor’s clicking trail in order to make it easier for them to reach their desired place. In short, you are trying to make your mobile website user-friendly, but have you ever considered what mobile consumers really expect from your website? Do you know what features they want to see in your mobile site? Below, we have outlined top mobile website features that consumers are anticipating in their mind: Simple Access to Contact Forms As a professional website owner, you probably know that it is not only important that you serve your visitors with clear information about your business and services, but you also offer them with an easy way to contact you. It will be a great idea to add a contact form to your site; however, you make sure to add contact form that is easy to customize to match your requirements and suit your website design. Moreover, don’t forget to create a simple path for your users to contact you as it will have more success if your users will be capable of clicking directly on your contact form. In the case of long and tricky forms, the users will have to scroll more and it would be inconvenient for them. Easy to Navigate Website When it comes to navigation, it plays a very important role to make your mobile website user-friendly.  Easy navigation is as important as the loading speed of your website, so make sure that mobile users should be able to perform the important actions from the level of the main page and reach the vital content from every single page. …
