Road Inc. is an Incredible Anthology of Legendary Automobiles
When I was first sent a link to this app, I didn’t pay much attention to it. I was told the app had something to do with cars, and me being more of a Streetfighter guy, that didn’t sound very interesting to me at first. But when I did land up on the app’s website and happened to see its promo video, the sheer brilliance of the app blew my mind. Let me just say right off the bat that Road Inc. is a phenomenally good app and that you should go ahead and buy it.
Road Inc. for iPad is a complete, thorough and beautiful anthology of legendary automobiles. Designed and developed by the creative geniuses at Pyrolia, Road Inc. is a absolute stunner of an interactive way to get to know about some of the most amazing cars — from the very beginning to the very recent. The app features a gorgeous 3D model of every car in the app, which you can rotate 360 degrees with your fingers. The app also boasts over 3000 archival documents including brochures, yearbooks, blueprints, adverts, plans, press articles, etc. for each of the cars. My favorite thing, though, is the inclusion of engine sounds. It’s just incredible to hear the engines roar like that.
The app features a TON of information and content about some of the legendary cars we’ve seen, presented in such a beautiful and aesthetic way that it is an absolute joy to consume on the iPad. Believe me when I say this, I have been spending hours in a row reading through the content that’s available in Road Inc. and I’ve found it to be more immersive than reading Steve’s biography.
Road Inc. is a prime example of how the iPad can be utilized to present content in a whole new way now. It’s available on the App Store for $5.99 and has already made it to my list of “demo” apps for iPad — the ones you show off to your friends.
