Acceleration Apps - Any Good Ones?

Just wondering if anyone has had success with mobile phone apps that give reasonably accurate 0-100km/h, 1/4mile times etc?

Or are they never gonna work as the signal to a phone GPS is too slow/inconsistent in reaction?

I downloaded a free one and tried some launches in my daily, but the 0-100 ranges vary between 5.0 to 6.0 sec and I'm sure there's not THAT much variation in my launches.

But before spending money on the 'better' ones, just wondering if any thoughts about whether any will actually be on point. Cheers.

Torque is not bad but it's only on Android. It works better if you have an external bluetooth GPS receiver. For your daily you could connect it to one of those bluetooth dongles that go in the OBD2 port. On my Jeep I can connect the phone directly to my stereo and mirror the phone screen. It's pretty cool.
