These days, most of us wouldn’t be able to make it out of the house on a daily basis without our smart phones. With so many apps being developed every day targeted at drivers, it can be almost impossible to figure out which ones are worth taking up the space on our devices. This is why the CashForCars.com team has created a list of the Best Apps for Drivers. Check out our suggestions below!
If you only download one app from this list, we highly recommend Waze! This app relies on its users to give up to the minute traffic information, and the app provides alternative routes, so you can avoid traffic. Users also report if there are accidents or law enforcement on the road, so you can be prepared for whatever comes your way.

Honk is a great app if you frequent areas where parking meters line the streets.
