Hopefully, you will never have to use this app as it is designed to help guide you through what information you need to put together a claim after an accident occurs. However, it is definitely a good app to keep handy as you can call your insurance company directly from the app, find a tow company, take as many pictures of the damage as you want, and organize the insurance information of anyone else involved in the crash.


Available On: Android

We decided to add this program to the Top 5 Apps For Your Car article because it puts an end to teen texting. Texting while driving is almost as detrimental as drunk driving so we felt TextBuster deserved mention here. This Android-only app requires a $179 piece of hardware be installed into your car’s power source. This device sends instructions to the TextBuster app that deactivates all data transfer with the exception of voice and map GPS software. It makes your teen safe without you being big brother. It’s a smart balance between safety and freedom.

Below is a video explaining how the hardware gets installed in your car.
