Car Starter is a dashboard app for Windows Phone 8 that places a decent amount of functionality at your fingertips while on the road. The app was recently updated to version 2.0 that not only brings about a name change but also a few design changes.
Now known as Car Dash, the version 2.0 update adds a dial pad to the Contacts Page and a music selection feature to the Music Page. The dial pad will allow you to dial a telephone number directly from the app. The music selection feature lets you browse through your music collection to find what song you want to listen to.
Car Dash also receives a few tweaks under the hood to improve performance and fix bugs and Podcast Lounge was added to the app shortcut list.
If you are looking for a decent dashboard app for your Windows Phone 8 device, Car Dash is one to consider. The base app is free with two in-app purchase options. If you want to unlock the NFC feature, it will cost you $.99. An hourly and three day weather forecast is available as an add-on for $.99 as well. You can also bundle both NFC and weather add-ons for $1.49.
You can find Car Dash here in the Windows Phone Store.
