3. Dashdroid

We all know that we are not supposed to use our cell phones while driving, but when you just can't resist the urge, here's a app that will make it safer and less distracting. The uncluttered interface helps you concentrate on driving instead of trying to fumble for the right button on your cellphone. With the use of voice commands, this app allows you to make a call or text without removing your hands from the steering wheel. It also displays your current speed, time of day, and weather. And if you are not totally sold yet, you will be when you find out that it is also free. Click here to take advantage of this great deal.

4. GasBuddy

 If you are interested in saving as much as possible on gas, then GasBuddy is the app for you. No matter where you are in Canada or the USA, GasBuddy will show you the cheapest gas price nearest to you. Simply enter your current location, city or postal/zip code and GasBuddy will show you exactly where the best gas prices are. And to top it all off, it's free. Click here for a choice to download from either the App store, Google Play, Windows Phone Store, or Blackberry.

5. Automatic

Automatic will monitor your driving habits and suggest ways that you can improve on gas mileage. It includes free emergency help when you are in a crash, and will also remind you of where you parked.  A separate car adapter, costing $99, allows you to plug into your car's computer and it will let you know the cause of your engine light coming on. It will tell you if you require a simple do-it-yourself fix such as tightening a loose gas cap or if you require a more complicated repair.
