Car Camera DVR - App Review

Here's an App that offers to do only one thing; record HD definition videos while driving.

Now for the ACIDS test:

You'll need some way to get your iOS device affixed to your windscreen (there are plenty of cost-effective solutions). From then, all you need do is press the large Rec button and (optionally) set the focus lock. That's all there is to it, which makes it very easy to use.

There are a number of parameters that can be set (please make sure you do this before setting off:

Audio recording (on or off)
Resolution (640x480, 1280x720, 1920x1080)
Compression (low, medium, high)
Time (display on or off) - this is almost certainly best left on
Available memory - there is a neat page showing usage and availability on your iOS device.

The App Costs $4.

It's a bit like an insurance policy; you don't need it until you do and then, hope that you are covered. Clearly this would help your case if you were involved in an accident (hopefully at least).

The App works very well, just ensure that the device is properly affixed.

The App is self-contained, so no concerns on this front, although obviously you will need to manage recordings otherwise your memory will become saturated.

ACIDS Test Rating:

If you don't have it, you'll wish you did.
