The iPhone has an app for pretty much everything you could desire and now it is attempting to corner the cherished number plates market.
www.iBuildApps.co.uk has launched a free iPhone application that allows consumers to find and buy personalised registration plates directly through their iPhone.
The developer claims it was built to keep pace with Britainâ€™s insatiable demand for personalised licence plates.
According to the Office of National Statistics, 1 in 20 UK drivers already own a personalised number plate, spending Â£500 per plate on average.
Bryn Firkins, who developed the app, said: â€œBrits love their motors. According to Apple, 5 of the 10 most downloaded iPhone apps in the UK in 2009 were car-related.â€
Since the cherished numbers scheme was launched in 1989, more than 3m plates have been sold, generating around Â£1.3bn in sales.
Apple claims there are now over 1.5m iPhone and iPod Touch users in the UK.
