Winter Survival Kit
You never know when you're going to break down; if you did, you never would! You can also run out of petrol in the most isolated of places, which is a disaster in the winter.
An app you definitely need for these grim times is Winter Survival Kit, an app that's used all around the world by people who live in the harshest of environments. This app helps you find your current location, call 911, notify your friends and family, calculate how long you can run your engine to keep warm, stay safe from carbon monoxide poisoning, plus so much more - you can even store essential numbers within the app and contact the emergency services. This app even sets up alerts to tell you when to turn off your engine to best preserve what precious fuel you have. You need a mobile service to make full use of this app's functions, but so long as you have an Edge signal, you should be fine.
Aside from a shovel, blankets, good clothing, tins of beans, and plenty of water, this app is as essential as it gets for winter driving. Be sure to download it and find out more about the many uses it has.
Another app which is worth a mention here today is AroundMe - this mobile app available on iTunes allows you to quickly find out information about your surroundings, and pinpoint banks/ATM machines, bars, cinemas, coffee shops, access local guides, plus much more. It's an accurate app with lots of useful content, and it has full Foursquare integration so there's lots of user reviews of places that the app finds. We reckon this app could save you a lot of misery in winter - what can't a hot cup of coffee fix?
