CAA releases the “CAA Roadside App” for iPhone

Just in time for the Summer road trips CAA (Canadian Automobile Association) has released the “CAA Roadside App” for iPhone. The app is free via the App Store and gives users quick access to connect for roadside assistance. You can either use the app for a one-touch button call for help, or click the “request for assistance” button and it uses the GPS in the iPhone to send help. While in the app you can select what issues you are experiencing such as dead battery, flat tire, tow truck, locked out etc…

Frank Fotia of CAA said “The number of Canadians that own iPhones is growing and this is just one of the ways that this technology is being adopted to improve our services. Furthermore, this technology is not only handy to iPhone users, but it’s also useful for our hearing-impaired members who can now request assistance electronically.”  Get it here via iTunes
