Top 10 Israeli apps that are revolutionizing your journeys

 


Whether it’s a navigation aid you’re seeking, or a city bus or parking, these apps have you covered. One will check your tire pressure and another checks your breath to gauge if you’re too tipsy to drive—and it’ll even hail you a cab if you are.

1. Waze

Waze was a global household name even before it was judged the world’s best mobile app and Google plunked down $1.03 billion to buy it in June.

The free crowdsourced navigation app allows users to share traffic information automatically in real time simply by following their GPS tracks.

Waze also allows drivers to build maps together and create private groups to share traffic tips. The service began in Israel but is available all over the world.

2. iOnRoad

Last March, international telecom giant Qualcomm awarded Israeli-made driving safety app iOnRoad $250,000 in funding and assistance, as the winner of its third annual QPrize international venture investment competition.

iOnRoad uses iPhone and Android smartphones’ cameras, sensors and GPS to determine hazards—for example, if a driver is too close to the car ahead or is exceeding the speed limit—and sends an audiovisual alert. The app’s personal dashboard lets the driver play music, make a phone call or check a map, with just a single tap.
