After Michael Jackson, if there is anything that can have most number of fans, it should be a car. It can be a BMW or a Volkswagen Beetle, but it certainly needs to be a machine. There are so many car enthusiasts across the world that now Discovery is running exclusive channels for them. You can see various road shows hosted across different parts of the world every month. While some are celebrating the anniversary of an old classic, there are others who just want an excuse to get out with their machine. They love their car and most of the times have engineered them to a new dimension. They know what they want and they know how to get it. These enthusiasts belong to a different race where all are equal and therefore they deserve to have their own community recognized worldwide. Let’s do it then!
I am talking about the latest iOS app called DRIVE.NET that has been developed by DRIVE. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 7.0 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5. This app is also available for Android devices on the Play Store.
As I said, it’s a community where you can share your posts with the other members. Whether you’ve recently been to a Road Trip with your friends or if you’ve been to an Auto Expo, share your photos or anything. People will like them, comment on them and you can reply them back. You can also send/receive messages and push notifications will make sure that you don’t miss any.
The UI of this app is very intuitive and neatly designed. You can see five tabs at the bottom of the screen. The Drive tab lets you create any new posts you want. While creating a post, you can add images and add written content to it as well. You can edit images and add filters to them as well before finalizing them for your post. Then at the next station, you can check all your feed from the community and like/comment on the posts. If you have any notifications, you can find them in the Messages section and reply back.
In DRIVE.NET, you can follow anybody you like. Just check out the posts of any member and if you like it, start following him/her so that his/her posts will be added to your feed as well. You can write to his/her logbook as well or message him. The official website of DRIVE.NET has more than 1million members and most of them will now be logging in to their account via this app. So you can soon expect it to grow with a boom.
The app is available for free in the App Store. So if you’re passionate about your machine sitting in your garage, why don’t you take it on a ride to DRIVE.NET!
Pros: neatly designed UI; add posts with pictures; filter pictures before adding; like/comment; push notifications for messages; free.
I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
