A Smart Addition to Your Car Comes From an iPhone App

The makers of the Smart car have now created an iPhone application designed for cars that will allow users to turn their iPhone into a useful device while people are driving down the highway.

The point of this iPhone application — supposedly called “Smart” — is to provide access to critical tasks you would need to perform in a car, and it provides an interface useful for drivers (big buttons, easy to use navigation, etc).

There is a music player that will allow users to easily access their iPhone music collection and play it through their cars audio. However, it takes it a step further by enabling the user to stream Internet radio through your car’s speakers as well.

There’s a phone component that allows users to easily navigate their contact list and make calls without having to fumble through separate menu systems on the iPhone. There is also a cool way to scroll through your contacts that will enable you to find names quickly.

The navigation component will allow you to easily access navigation controls with the iPhone’s built-in GPS, and it has features like the ability to find gas prices or find specific locations with integrated Bing search.

And there are other useful features including a car finder, which will store the location of your car so you can easily find it if you manage to lose your way back to your vehicle.

Seems like a smart move to us.
