There are plenty of fantastic driving applications for the iPhone, but most revolve around successfully directing you to your destination. This new addition from BMW adds a little more driver-satisfaction for petrol heads.

The BMW Ultimate Drive app for iPhone details the best roads to drive on in over 50 countries around the world, using the device's GPS to find stretches of roads in your area that you may now have discovered.

The app will guide you to the best roads for long drives or day trips and enables you to share your favourites with other members of the community.

You can send directions to your mates, if they're accompanying you on the jaunt, and you can share your favourite trips on Facebook. You can even rate and comment on routes uploaded by others.

The app is free to download and available to download from the App Store now.
