When DavidB let me know about the free Help I Crashed My Car app I thought it was an original BlackBerry app idea. Once I had a chance to try it and read the reviews it seems like they still have a bit of work to do but the app idea is pretty solid. It provides users with a one-click response to an accident that contacts up to 3 family members, your insurance company, and your preferred body shop. It can even send your shop a map of your accident location so they can come and help.
The app also pulls your GPS location and provides you with the closest Police department, Ambulance service, Hospital, Towing Company, Rental Car Company, or auto body shop. From what I am seeing in the reviews there have been some issues with getting GPS to work but it worked fine on my Torch. The lack of customization options will hopefully be rectified in future versions but all in all I have to say the app idea is creative.
You can pick up the free Help I Crashed My Car app at this link in App World and let us know what you think in the comments! This is definitely one of those apps you hope to never use but it could be handy in an emergency.
