[prMac.com] Canberra, Australia - "We created Zilla because we loved the idea of replicating the kinds of cool gadgets Japanese supercars have, with an iPhone" says Nathan Hamey, designer on Zilla. "It turns out the iPhone can measure the forces in your car down to 0.01G, which is pretty darned accurate. In-car computers with this level of accuracy typically cost hundreds or thousands of dollars, but now everyone with Zilla can get access to the same kinds of data for a few bucks instead".
Zilla has more than 14 different gauges and graphs that plot G-Forces, Tire Loading, Air Temperature, Speed, and more, in realtime. Configurable in multiple orientations and modes, with 6 different color schemes (via in-app purchase), and a heads-up display (HUD) mode, Zilla offers a stylish, affordable upgrade for anyone who loves to drive.
"Zilla has been a fantastic project to work on, and we think our passion shows throughout the app" says Jeff Gardner, developer on Zilla. "From the meticulous detail on the gauges, through to late nights spent tweaking our code for accuracy with algorithms originally designed to guide missiles down chimneys. It might sound crazy, but we're confident people will notice these touches when they take it for a spin. In future releases, our goal is to push Zilla's capabilities even further with features that let users log, playback and export data on their runs."
