Quick iPhone App Review: Dynolicious

Today we look at an iPhone app called Dynolicious. A Dyno in my phone? what? how does that work?

The idea of an in car dyno is nothing new, G-Tech is a popular product in this arena, but at $200 - $300 it's kind of pricey for the average person with curiosity. The iPhone is the same price, but hell you already have that. This is only an additional $13. The iPhone has a great set of accelerometers in it, which is what this app uses to measure HP.

This app measures the following and does it pretty damn accurately I must say:

  • 0-60 MPH Other Speed Tests (0-10 MPH through 0-100 MPH in 10MPH increments)
  • Quarter Mile Elapsed Time Quarter Mile Trap Speed
  • Elapsed Time and Trap Speed for standard intervals (60ā€™, 330ā€™, 1/8 Mi, 1000ā€™) Lateral Gā€™s (current and peak)
  • Braking Gā€™s (current and peak) Wheel Horsepower
  • Estimated Engine Horsepower

Below are some screenshots of the app. For 13 bucks it's a cool little gadget to mess around with if you are a car enthusiast, or just curious about your cars performance.
