Car Starter App and Settings Shortcuts

Car Starter has six preset buttons to launch a collection of apps and settings.  The collection of settings shortcut options has been expanded to include airplane mode, rotation lock and location services.  The collection of app shortcut options has expanded to include the WPCentral app, HERE Maps, and PCast that includes voice commands to launch and play podcasts from PCast.

The version 1.5 update also includes your typical user interface improvements, bug fixes and helps give a nice Windows Phone 8 app a little more meat on the bones. 

Car Starter is a free Windows Phone 8 app that you can pick up here in the Windows Phone Store.
