2. Velociraptor

We’ve all been in the situation where you’re driving and you’re not sure about the speed limit. Most navigation apps, such as Google Maps, don’t display the posted speed limit. Velociraptor is an app that overlays the posted speed limit and your current speed over the top of maps apps. You can even get sound alerts when you’re going too fast.
