AA App - free, but requires AA membership for advanced features (Apple, Android)

This app has a few useful free features – it will let you accurately report a breakdown location, for example, plus it shows local traffic alerts. You need to be an AA member to make the most of it, though – and if you are then you can access local petrol pricing information and information on parking nearby.

The parking function is especially useful in congested cities. It shows the location of nearby car parks, the number of spaces and the cost to park, so you can choose the best option. Sadly it doesn’t show you how many of the spaces are unoccupied, so you might navigate to a full car park – but it’s a lot better than driving around blindly.
