Monitor your car performance using your iPhone!

dynolicious iphone applicationIs there no end to the ingenuity of iPhone application developers? An all new iPhone application called Dynolicious claims to be the first iPhone application that is able to perform as an automotive performance meter.

According to their website:

"Dynolicious uses the hardware built-in to your iPhone to measure the performance characteristics of your vehicle. No external wires or equipment is necessary, simply slip the iPhone into a cradle or cupholder and go!"


The performance metrics that this application can measure are:

* 0-60 Acceleration
* 1/4 Mile Elapsed Time
* Lateral G's
* Horsepower

All that you need to do is to place the iPhone into the cup holder or a cradle in your car and it takes the measurements by utilizing the in built accelerometer in your iPhone. The application also maintains the history of test results and you will be able to recall averages and trends in the results as well. This is definitely a must-have for all car enthusiasts!
