Technical hiccups caused by upgrades

No Comments

Dear members and fellow drivers,

We’ve heard your feedback, and have worked to deliver a smoother browsing and sign-up experience for you, and completed the successful server migration to a bigger local provider (using a local listed telco’s backend infrastructure) over the weekend.

There were a few technical hiccups along the way, including disk failure at the webhost, which were beyond our control, and some of you might have experienced an unfamiliar page or service. We’d like to take this opportunity to apologise to everyone, and for any inconveniences caused.

Please rest assured that we are always around for you, and we will not fail your trust in us.

Thoughts About Our Competition

No Comments

Recently, other insurance compare websites sprung up, touting cheaper quotes for everyone, and spent a lot of advertising money to get the message out on the roads, tv, newspapers advertorials, buying radio DJ slots and so on.

From our customers feedback and own observations, some of these sites could possibly have only 2-3 choices, like Liberty, HSBC, and so forth.

Thanks for supporting us all this while, and help us by sharing with your friends and Like This on Facebook

At AutoMoneyBack, you are covered as we already deliver these on board and more – NTUC, Chartis, AXA etc.

For the drivers, the insurers quote the same to everyone – be it through us, your friend, or other sites.

But importantly to you – at AutoMoneyBack – we’re dedicated to car insurance, which serves you better, and thanks to our rewards of up to $500, through the patent-pending system that we’ve created, we give you perpetual value year after year.

A last thought – AutoMoneyBack will also commit to deliver express quotes for you to compare on the same day or by next working day. Sometimes, these depend on the insurers response times which we endeavor to minimize for you, our customer.

Must have apps for drivers

No Comments

Parking apps: When it comes to carpark locators, it was a toss up between Carpark@SG and Park-a-lot lite.
Both are free and have decent, though not comprehensive, lists of carparks in Singapore.
Park-a-lot allows you to browse for carparks nearby, while Carpark@SG shows the availability of parking spaces.

Show Nearby: Show Nearby locates amenities, including convenience stores, movie theatres and hospitals, in your vicinity.
While not a carpark app, Show Nearby gives a rather comprehensive listing of carparks in less central parts of Singapore.
But, as its name suggests, it is useful only when you are “nearby”, and it is hard to search for a specific location in advance.

Park Alert: Check in your location when you have parked your car and you can receive alerts, or warn others, when a parking warden comes by.

Motor-insurance apps: AXA and NTUC Income both have motor-insurance apps. AXA’s is for the use of its policyholders, while NTUC Income’s has a number of useful functions for motorists, including an accident toolkit.

Basic Theory Test: Helps driving learners practise for the Basic Theory Test using mock tests.

iRoadmate SG (Free)

AVAILABLE only as a Web application, it is compatible with the iPhone, as well as Windows Mobile and Symbian phones.

Besides displaying the latest traffic news, the map function provided by Google displays the petrol kiosks, carparks, Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) gantries, and bus services at your designated location or other nearby places.

Pros: It has an attractive interface, with all prices and charges clearly displayed. It also provides detailed information.

Cons: At first glance, it is not very intuitive to use. You will need to search more than once to expand the search area. There are also no push notifications, as it is not really a phone app. (Free)

Launched this year by the Land Transport Authority, is packed with tools for the driver and the commuter.

Applications for motorists include a parking guide, views from traffic cameras, a parkand- ride locator, and live COE bidding results. It is compatible with the iPhone, Windows Mobile and Android smartphones.

Pros: Its parking guide, which displays the number of parking spaces at carparks in shopping districts, is a boon.

Cons: Its font is too tiny, as is its display area. Using it to search for ERP rates at specific gantries is a tedious process, as it suffers from poor search categorisation. (US$2.99) provides directions to any location in Singapore, whether you are driving, taking a bus, the MRT or a taxi.

It also provides the estimated time and cost of travel, including ERP and carpark rates for drivers.

Originally a Web application, most of its best-liked features have been neatly adapted to a mobile interface. It is currently available only on the iPhone.

Pros: The app is highly customised for use in Singapore, and all the transport options are displayed clearly at the same time.

Cons: It does not provide information on real-time traffic conditions.

TraffiCam (Free)

Want to know which roads to avoid? With just two taps on your smartphone’s screen, this app will give you an overview of the traffic on major roads in Singapore.

It covers hotspots like the Causeway and expressways, and the images are updated every five to 10 minutes.

Pros: It is good when all you need is a quick update on traffic conditions. It is also easier to use than the traffic-camera module in Plus, it allows you to save your favourite locations for easier access.

Cons: It would be a lot better if it were integrated with a traffic-news function.
