Want Your Car To Sound Like A SuperCar? There's An App For That

January 24, 2011

Ever wished your Chevrolet Cavalier sounded like a supercar? Of course you have, and now it can. Like everything else in the world, there's an app for that. Created by Black Frog Industries, the AutoTones app is an engine sound simulator for your iPhone.

The app is easy enough to use: choose the vehicle type you want as the sound output. Then place your iPhone down in a secure spot in your vehicle. Using the accelerometer in your iPhone, the app will detect acceleration, deceleration, turns, stops, and idling. Even movement of the steering wheel will be detected, and displayed on the screen of your iPhone. Other features include the ability to honk the selected's vehicles horn. While no real speed is given, the app does have a speedometer that moves.

For those who don't have a vehicle but want to be super cool, you can use the app while on a train, or in a taxi. Your fellow passengers on the train, or the taxi cab driver, are sure to love you.

Black Frog Industries states that more vehicles will be added to the apps database soon.

AutoTunes is currently available in the iTunes App Store for $0.99.
