Excite

The most useful app ever?

You've played Angry Birds for days on end, but will you ever find an iPhone app that's really, really useful? This copyright-risking app AutoBot looks like it would be. Combined with a special Bluetooth dongle which you attach to your car, the app will help diagnose any problems with your engine, or text your loved ones if you're in an accident, Engadget reports.

Most usefully, though, it'll keep track of the GPS co-ordinates of your car and let you track it on your phone. Handy if someone nicks it.

The bad news, this is all in its early days - AutoBot isn't due on the market until 2012. So you've got some time to save up the around-£250 asking price...
