Zipcar App Now Available on the App Store
- By Dian Schaffhauser
Zipcar, which makes car-sharing service available on 120 university campuses, has released a free application for the iPhone and iPod touch in the Apple App Store.
The Zipcar App enables users to find and reserve available cars in any location it serves; get directions to the car; sort cars by time, model, or type; and locate the car by telling it to honk its horn and unlock and lock its doors.
"Like so many urban dwellers today, more than 25 percent of Zipcar members live their life from their iPhones," said Scott Griffith, chairman and CEO. "The new Zipcar App is a simple, fun, and self-service technology that now allows millions of iPhone and iPod touch users to have on-the-go access to Zipcars around the globe."
