Think of buying a new car? There is an app for that

New Car Guide UK 2010 [iTunes Link] is a handy iPhone catalog with all models from car makers in the UK with updated 2010 information. Wether you're doing your research to buy your next car, or are just a motor freak, this app is for you

Organised by Car manufacturers, the app contains individual data for over 5500 car models currently being sold in the UK. You can drill down the submenus to choose your model and de different standard versions of the car. It doesn't end up here. With technical details of every model listed, including a picture and a video, this makes for an indispensable app for any Top Gear fan. 

The app allows the user to filter this wealth of information with the Car Search option. You can choose your budget, fuel consumption, CO02 band, vehicle type, fuel and transmission. The results will be conveniently displayed sorted by price. 


The developer has promised to update monthly the New Car Guide UK 2010 app (that's a name) to include the latest released models. For me this is a great tool for putting models side by side to see how they compare, or to see how a new comer competes with the features of other cars in the same band. All this information is available without internet connection (except YouTube videos) and it is provided directly from manufacturers being verified before being added to the app. 

Developer iCarData is giving a PS3 and GT5 game away for the car fans that follow @icardata on Twitter and tweet “I entered iCarData’s competition to win PS3 Slim and Gran Turismo 5. To enter, follow @icardata & RT #icardata #cars”. Make sure you check it out.
