Apple wasn't kidding with its "There's an app for that" commercials, claiming there's an app for just about anything on the iPhone. This week, it's Cartopia, an iPhone app by Nationwide Insurance that can help you choose a car based on safety, gas mileage, color and other features. To create some buzz around the app, Nationwide released this video illustrating the capabilities of Cartopia. The 90-second video is basically a tutorial on how to use the app, which goes really fast so you've got to pay attention. Of course, there's a plug for Nationwide—the app offers you car insurance from the provider when you've found "the perfect car." My favorite is the sales guy at the end, who seems really relieved that he didn't have to do any convincing. So, move over, annoying car salesmen. The iPhone is all we need to make a purchasing decision. Now, if only the iPhone could also wash and detail the car, it would truly be priceless.
