The app could help people shopping for a motor

Motorists looking to recycle mobile phones for a new device may be tempted into one particular model following the launch of a software application.

Available for the Apple iPhone 3G, specialist car website Honest John has unveiled a widget that can be downloaded to the device to provide hints and tips on the various models available.

In addition the app, which is available free online, will offer road tests, video clips and access to an interactive forum where people can seek advice from others on any issues related to motoring.

Honest John himself, who runs a regular agony column where he makes use of his experiences as a former motor trader, said the software would address the problem some have about feeling "out of their depth" on a forecourt.

"It's like taking me with you to the showroom," he added. "[Users] will have all my road tests and video road tests on hand, including a wealth of performance data, searchable by make and model."

The Apple iPhone 3G S was launched earlier this year and is available exclusively on the O2 network in the UK.
