Car Butler HD, A Car’s Concierge App You Need on Your iPad – Video Review

iPhoneGlance Rating [rating=5]

Car Butler HD developed by Fancy Auto, is probably the most useful app a driver could have. Every driver wants a relaxing and easy commute, wether it’s to work or personal errands. With Car Butler HD it’s actually more pleasant to drive your car. A great app for any car driver which includes some really smart gadgets.  Its your personal concierge within the car !!  Enter your location and intended destination and the  journey planner feature pulls up a maps to provide up to three different journey suggestions for your destination.

The app uses your location to tell you where the nearest fuel station is and directions to get there and does the same for the nearest car wash,  body shop , mechanic and parking lot.  All your car care needs rolled into one app. Amazing.

One of the best features of the app is the accident report tab which provides all the reminders of  what information you should note down in the event of an accident.  There is space to record the other drivers contact details and license plate. There is even a drop down menu for you to select the vehicle type.  You can record  your witness’s name and phone number, attending police officers name, phone number and badge number  and you can also upload up to 4 pictures of the scene.  In the event of an accident this feature ensures you don’t forget a single thing.  On the profile page you can store your own personal information about your driver status , insurance information and car information.  So important.

My absolute favourite thing on this app is the ‘ Mark your parking spot’ feature.  Which allows you to set an alarm to remind you when your parking ticket expires and allows you to upload a picture of your actual parked position which will provide evidence in the case of an unscrupulous attendant who wants to try and stick one on you for no reason. In the settings tab, the search radius only goes up to 15 miles which will be useful in urban areas but not so much on a long trip.

I love this app, it’s like having Jeeves sitting next to me in my car. Car Butler HD is a great app, works perfectly, fill the iPad screen well and it’s free. It’s so good it as picked up our 5 star rating. Give it a try you have nothing to lose but a much more calming driving experience to gain.
