Now Available: C2G, for car2go on your iPhone

C2G IconThe latest iPhone app from Coffeeshopped is now available: C2G, for car2go. C2G allows you to view a map of available cars, parking spots, and gas stations in your city, and to make short-term reservations. It currently works in Austin, Vancouver, Ulm, and Hamburg (and I'll add more cities as car2go makes them available).

When I began work on C2G, there were already 3 (or more) iPhone apps out there for using car2go. I've used two of them, and frankly they just weren't very good. The most popular one available has a cluttered interface (e.g. who needs satellite view on a map when you're looking for a car?), and a strange feature where, once you reserve a car, there's no way to see where it is from within the app. Anyway, I don't want to talk a bunch of trash; the point is that it was pretty straightforward to make an app that better serves the basic needs of a car2go user. I hope C2G is exactly that.

See some screenshots on C2G's App Store page.

The app works great, but an update should be made to note that certain areas have different policies for reservations and such. For example, I use car2go in Vancouver where there is no charge or penalty for cancelling a reservation. When using the app and attempting to cancel a reservation, I get a warning saying that I'll be charged a penalty, but that's not car2go's policy at.
