This app forms part of utility category with some element of navigation added in it, but there is some fun or entertainment speedometer also. Generally whenever you are travelling in a car, you do not require a speedometer, however, when you are in some other mode of conveyance like, train or bus etc and want to know you speed these apps can be of great help in your smartphone. At times, you really need to know your speed while on the other hand this app can act as a fun tool as entertainment aid while travelling especially once there is nothing to do while travelling. I have seen some people using these speedometers if their cars are having faulty gadgets as most of these apps are even more accurate as compared to those in vehicles.
Keeping this thing aside, that what is the purpose of this application, we must know that on what principle this it works. The device is not connected to anything inside the vehicle you are travelling. The answer is simple, that all these speedometer apps make use of inbuilt GPS of the device you are using. So those users who are not having GPS in their devices can just relax and take a look at some other interesting apps like, Best Annotate PDF Reader Apps for iPad, Apps to Detect WiFi Hotspots and Must Have Broadband Apps for Android, iPhone and iPad.
