    Ever wanted an app to do just what you need. Well look no further. I have used a lot of driving apps but this one is by far the smooth operator around here.

    This app is perfect for me. It is simple and easy to use which is a hug bonus on the road. It isn't clutter but at the same time is very customizable. I would highly recommend this app to anyone who wants and needs a reliable car Widget.

    Can't fault it yet. Every car launcher I've tried has been slow. With this I can use my fave launcher and still have easy access in my car to launch sat nav\music player.
