Community Apps are another great example of our focus on innovation, our determination to break from tradition, and our continuing dedication to the Project CARS community.
Over a year ago, Slightly Mad Studios released an API giving the community the ability to plug directly in to Project CARS and pull out a variety of information. The intent here was to allow you the players the ability to create your own supporting apps for all the weird and wonderful devices and hardware you own.
Now, as Project CARS nears release, here are just a few of the fantastic creations you’ve made that further blur the lines between game and real-life, and prove once more that Project CARS is the most technically-advanced racing game on the planet…
Created by Pocket Playground, this second screen app allows you to display vehicle dashboard info, lap timings, or even telemetry data from your current Project CARS session directly onto an iOS or Android device.

Created by Sebastian Barz, this second screen app takes a widget-based approach allowing you to pick the info you want to see from Project CARS and create your very own layout of the data that’s most important to you!
