You don’t have to pay anything to get this app, provided you have a suitable smartphone. It is simple to use, though you do need an in car dock to get the phone placed correctly. Using the app is simple – turn it on and press the video button to start recording. Users can set the amount of memory space the app is allowed to use and it will record on a loop, deleting files to keep the phone's memory free.

If an accident is detected by the onboard accelerometer a clip will be automatically saved, or users can manually save by tapping the screen. The app also records location, time, date and other details that might be helpful if there is an accident. It does take its toll on battery life if set to record higher resolutions but generally it works well. However most phone cameras don’t capture a particularly wide field of view – not ideal for a dash camera. You can'y complain to much when it's free, though.
