What is ZipCar?
Ladies and gentlemen, start your iPhone.
Zipcar members, you can use your iPhone or iPod touch to quickly and easily find and reserve a Zipcar around the corner or across the globe. You can also honk the horn, and even lock and unlock the doors. The streamlined interface makes for a very smooth ride.
We don’t like to toot our own horn, but here goes: The Zipcar App was one of Time Magazine’s “Best Travel Gadgets of 2009,” one of Wired’s “Five Commuter iPhone Apps You’ve Gotta Try,” was featured in an iPhone commercial, and voted one of Time Magazine’s 50 best iPhone apps for 2011. (Toot! Toot!)
As always, we’ll keep working to make the Zipcar App better and better and filled with more of the features Zipsters want to see.
