Honest John, a motoring columnist for The Daily Telegraph and a former car trader saw that British car buyers needed a special kind of website. Far from being enthusiasts, most car buyers simply want straightforward answers to direct questions, written in a way that they can understand by someone they can trust.

To date, honest John has personally answered over half a million letters and emails surrounding two main issues:

What’s the best car for me?
Where can I get the best deal?

You can now access this information while on the move using this app.

Updated and fixed!

As others correctly state, the app is just a front to webkit/Safari; might as well just load the website and read the content there. This app now serves no valid purpose. Developers should either fix this or withdraw it.

UPDATE: the developers _have_ updated the app, it now works perfectly again!

Works well and gives a lot of info. Video reviews and the post from backroom are really good.

Could do with the car-by-car items as on his web site not just the reviews.

Looks promising but doesn't work

Reading other reviews it looks like the latest version has broken the app. I suggest this app reverts to previous functioning version or is removed as there is no point in listing this in the apps store.
