iStock 000020243960XSmallLet’s face it. We’re addicted to our smart phones and the entertainment they offer us. They let us check out email while listening to our favorite Pandora station and checking for the latest game updates. They also let us practice our skills at launching Angry Birds while waiting in line at the checkout.

But apps aren’t merely for fun and games. While phones and cars aren’t usually supposed to mix, they can offer us some major advantages. They can help us score better gas prices, shop for a new car, even recover from an accident. Let’s take a look at some of the best auto mobile apps out there...

Gas Buddy

Great for: Getting cheaper gas
Price: Free!
Available for: Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Phone 7

Gas Budy finds nearby stations with the lowest prices. With $4 per gallon gas, who isn’t eager to save a few cents at the pump?

KBB.com

Great for: Shopping for a used car
Price: Free!
Available for: Android, iPhone, Windows Phone 7

This app is like carrying a Kelley Blue Book with you to the lot! Simply enter year, make, model and features, and it will give you a suggested value, which you can adjust based on the mileage and condition.

iWrecked

Great for: Responding after a car accident
Price: Free!
Available for: Android, iPhone

After a jarring accident, this app guides you through the details you need to take note of, from the time and place to the other driver's insurance info. Shoot pictures of the damage with your phone's camera. Then you can export an accident report as a PDF. In the event that you can’t drive home, iWrecked suggests nearby taxi and towing services.

Car Butler

Great for: A little bit of everything
Price: Free!
Available for: iPhone

With everything Car Butler can do, it’s better than Jeeves! You can gauge traffic, find parking, search for car washes...and more!

Honk

Great for: Tracking meter time
Price: $0.99
Available for: iPhone

Honk keeps track of your meter time and reminds you when you need to insert another quarter. It also helps you record where you park, just in case you’re directionally-challenged.

These apps just take a few minutes to download (and maybe a few pennies), but in the end they could save you tons of time. Why not try one today?
