Saving money and time has never been superfluous. But, unfortunately, car owners in such conditions are among the most vulnerable groups of the population, considering the growing costs of service, gasoline, parking. So, to somehow brighten up their hardships, we have selected several useful anti-crisis apps for smartphones that will simplify drivers' lives. And for those who are just about to buy a car, check the apppearl website with a list of useful apps.

AutoCare

AutoCare allows you to watch the expenses of several cars simultaneously: each of them is assigned its profile. Note that this feature is available in about 50% of apps, useful in some instances. Another exciting feature is the accounting of urban and out-of-town mileage.

You can create your categories. There is also an option to create reminders after a certain time or mileage. Otherwise, it is not overloaded with unnecessary functions and of little use and allows you to track your expenses in detail.

Beepster

The main difference between this application and the previous one is the synchronization of data with the server. So when you change phones, the program will save all the necessary information. But you can disable this function, and then all the statistics will be stored only on your device. You can authorize through social networks. Expenses are divided into three categories - fuel, service, and other.

Statistics are available for individual categories as well as by total expenses for a car. You can view the collected information both in the usual form and in graphs. In addition, you can create a reminder to repeat the work after a specified mileage or time interval when adding service costs. The functionality is similar to the above apps, but visually Beepster looks nicer.

Driver Notes

Quite a colorful application, which is available on all mobile platforms and in web-version. Provides registration for data synchronization on all devices but allows you to use all the features without it fully. The main screen is presented in a car dashboard, showing costs, mileage, consumption, and cost per mile traveled.

The expenditure items are repair, service, washing, fueling, and tuning; you can add your items such as car insurance expenses, etc. In addition, the application allows you to set the resource (by time or mileage) for individual works: replacement of pads, suspension diagnostics, oil change, etc. At the end of the set interval, the program will remind us about the necessity of the works. Thus, the application is perfect for car enthusiasts, closely following their cars. In addition, you can work with the system through a browser.

Car Manager

When you first encounter the application, your eyes involuntarily stumble upon an unusual for this type of programs item "add income." The menu item provides three ways of income, including transportation of passengers, cargo, and rental cars. Otherwise, the application is an excellent tool for keeping comprehensive statistics on car expenditures and analysis for different periods.

Among the pleasant bonuses are the ability to add random notes with mileage and create your mini-reference book of spare parts with part numbers and other necessary information. In addition, all saved data can be imported and exported so that a phone change won't be a problem.

Drivvo

It offers three spending categories by default, but you can add others. Allows you to keep track of income - suitable for cabs and trucking. The paid version will enable you to add another driver and export the data to Excel.

Simply Auto

The app offers three expense categories by default. In addition to standard functions, it allows you to track fuel economy depending on octane number and gas stations.

My Car

There are detailed expense statistics with clear graphs. Able to calculate the cost of car ownership and the cost of a mile run. You can add notes and photos. The paid version has income accounting.

ParkApp

Find out if there's parking available in your neighborhood. And if there is no space, the app will offer you an alternative and even help you find a free space in the yard of the nearest house you didn't even know you had. Your parking data is read from your drivers' devices, so you see what's happening in real-time. It will tell you when a car is pulling out of its spot and available space. ParkApp will bail you out when you're traveling. It collects data about parking spaces worldwide - even in Milan, you can find out where to park.

Hudway

The application will help you get safely to your spot even in the worst weather. When visibility is poor, the app will project an image of the road on your windshield. No additional devices are needed for this. Attach your phone to the dashboard, and Hudway will show you the route, no matter where in the world and in what conditions you find yourself. Your mobile assistant will warn you about all the obstacles on the way and advise you to reduce speed if ahead is a dangerous turn. You can use the Hudway even in places where there is no Internet. If the weather turns bad and you go out of town, download a route in advance and use it offline.
