iBeetle app for iPhoneEnlarge Photo
Actually, we don't mind Mondays that much as it's a perfect excuse for us to find something that makes the day a little bit more fun, and this week we've dug up five iPhone apps for the ardent Volkswagen fan.
Turns out the Apple App Store is littered with VW-themed apps so we've tested a bunch, all available for free, that can keep you occupied on your lunch breaks throughout the week.
You'll have to bear with us on this one, as the whole app seems to be in Spanish. The description on iTunes claims other languages are available, but it doesn't seem too difficult to work out.
Step one, for some reason, is to draw a big "i" on a piece of paper (or type in "i" into Google images and hover your iPhone camera over it). A Beetle then appears which you can spin around and zoom in and out of. You can also choose from a few different colors and wheel options.
With the camera still active you can then take a photo of your virtual Beetle in a real scenario - a nice use of augmented reality. We were inside a room when we tested the app so had to settle for a photo of a street we found on the internet.
Overall it's a fun - if rather limited - app and if you've not yet put your name down on a 2012 Volkswagen Beetle, it's a good way of seeing what one will look like on your driveway...
