When you find yourself on the road headed towards a sun-filled day at Wrightsville Beach or to the Farmers Market in Downtown Wilmington on the Cape Fear River, chances are you'll need to make a pit stop or two. 

Here are a few apps for your phone that will keep you informed while travelling

For Android users, check out GasBuddy.com, a free app that helps you find the best fuel prices at nearby stations.  It detects your location then deisplays prices reported by other users for regular, mid-grade, premium and diesel.  Once you select the gas station, it will give you turn-by-turn directions to get there.

Another app is called RepairPal that will give you estimated repair costs for your car in a particular area.  You have to enter your car's make, model, and other details for it to prepare the information, and it can also help you locate emergency assistance if you break down.

For iPhone users, check out iExit, an app that identifies gas stations, restaurants, hotels and other services available at each exit.  It also locates rest areas.

And in case you have an accident, you can use iWrecked which will walk you through the steps you need to follow after an accident.  It can also dial 911 and locate tax, tow service, or the police.

We hope to see you soon in our area, and if you are interested in learning more about real estate in our area, please Email, text, or call me at your convenience.  808-224-8816
