  • We test car-related phone apps
  • Apps for iPhone devices
  • From 'black box' video to parking locators
So what is an 'app'? Simple – it's an application that can be downloaded and run on your iphone or iPad.

There are hundreds of car-related apps out there, but we've concentrated on driving aids, which will do everything from filming your car journeys to finding your car when you've forgotten where you parked it.

The apps
In this review, we've tested iPhone apps - however, we also have an Android version. Many of the apps are free, but some cost up to £4. We tested apps from the following categories:

Black box recorders To video your journeys
Fuel From petrol station finders to money-saving apps
Fun and games Toys for children and the grown-ups
Parking Find a space, share one and pay for it
Learn to drive Apps to help learners pass their test
