Driving in Singapore can be rather stressful, but with these five useful car apps, they'll definitely make your commute a lot more bearable.

While we don't suggest you using your smartphone while driving, there are several apps out that can actually enhance your daily commute. From parking management to helping drivers avoid speed traps, there's definitely a car app in this list that suits your driving needs. Check them out below:

1. Parking.sg

Motorists Parking

Parking.sg is a mobile app that allows motorists to use their mobile devices to pay for their parking session. Instead of displaying physical parking coupons, vehicle owners can simply pay for their session via the app. All they have to do is to select the car park, input their vehicle number and set their parking duration. Fees will be automatically calculated and deducted from your debit or credit card. If you decide to end your parking session earlier, you can even refund the balance, which will be calculated on a per minute basis. Drivers can even extend their parking duration via the app and receiving notifications when their session is about to expire.

Created by drivers for drivers, the Motorist App is the brainchild of Motorist.sg that aims to simplify the lives of every Singapore driver. Equipped with a suite of free motoring tools, the Motorist App lets you check live traffic cameras, avoid speed cameras and fuel checks, as well as find out your vehicle information from LTA. 

With ERP 2.0 now creeping over the horizon, the Motorist app is also able to be used as an LTA-approved alternative display for the OBU's touchscreen display! That mean's you'll be able to enjoy all the features of the new OBU system without having to install the touchscreen display on your dashboard. 

Besides the aforementioned features, you can even manage your current vehicle via the Motorist App. For example, if your car's COE is expiring, you can choose to renew it or sell your vehicle through the app. Similar to the Motorist.sg web platform, any quotes or valuation you receive are completely obligation-free.
