Makego makes your iPhone go!

Are your kids always looking to expand their car collection?

Fill the toy garage with an endless number of cars built to your child’s exact specifications with the Makego app. Yes, an app!

Makego turns your iPhone or iPod Touch into a toy vehicle. Firstly, you select what kind of vehicle your device is going to be – a race car, an ice-cream truck or a river boat. Next, build your vehicle around your device – Lego or cardboard are suggested starting points but really, the sky is the limit. Now you’re good to go!

Check out the video clip below to see the app in action – sound effects, working speedometers, hungry customers waiting for the ice cream truck and ducks on the river add to the fun. And of course, you can customise vehicle paint colours to match your Lego!

Designer Chris O’Shea promises more vehicles are coming soon. In the meantime, race in to the iTunes app store for Makego, priced at $1.99.

If you think Makego looks like fun, you might also enjoy our previous review about the Helicopter Taxi app.

Katrina studied planning and design, did the hard yards working in a big office building and then traded it all in for a relaxing (!) life at home with four children. She now fills her time with writing, completing a degree in genetics and taxiing her children around Melbourne to their various sporting commitments (not necessarily in that order).
