On the heels of Chevy’s mobile app blitz for the Volt, BMW followed up by showing off their very own iPhone app. Chevy has one leg up on BMW as the Volt app is available for the iPhone, BlackBerry and Android. But there is one flaw, you can’t yet buy a Volt…BMW, FTW!
The BMW M Power Meter Application uses the iPhone’s native accelerometer to measure speed, acceleration and your acceleration to a specific speed. But the best part, you don’t have to own a BMW to use it–and it’s free! How often can you say that about something from BMW?
I plan to use it on public transportation around San Francisco.
