Car Dash

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.

Cyber Monday may be over but these Cyber Week deals are still alive

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.
