"I'm really paranoid about how much these tech companies know about you. When you use some other browsers or services, you're unwittingly letting them know about everything you search, visit, look for, and do online, and even your location I'm SO OVER THAT!! So it's good that a browser like BRAVE exists"

    "This app looks like it could help someone find their way home while driving, based on the navigation tools, but I don't see how it is any different than just using the normal navigation apps that come with every phone standard in regard to actual navigation. The topic seems to be asking for something more along the lines of finding someone to drive your car home."

    "I'm really torn about Car Minder Plus. It's certainly robust, allowing you to track just about every typical car maintenance area you could be concerned about. However, I found navigating through it and accessing old data to be really awkward. I find myself wanting to use this more, for the sake of my car, but not because it frustrates me."

    "This app won't help you get your car home, but it will help with maintenance needs. So if you're looking for some kind of app to help with bringing a car home this won't help you. Other apps are better suited for that."

    "This is definitely a useful app in a lot of respects - you can just tell it to give you directions or turn on something you want to listen to and it works! I like that very much, and was surprised at how responsive it is. However, I wish they had installed something like, "Recommend a towing company," or "call the closest towing company to me that's open right now," or "call AAA, I'm stuck!", so I could find a way to get my car home physically, rather than just knowing what route to take - which is handy, nonetheless, to make sure the tow-truck driver isn't dinging you for extra miles! Aside from that little feature which I think it could really use in case of a breakdown (which I had, and couldn't figure out what to do using the app, so just used my phone to call my husband, who in turn called a towing company), it's a really great app to have out on the road!"
