The Cool Wall
By BBC Worldwide
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
One of the official Top Gear apps, the Cool Wall has been one of Apple’s 'New and Noteworthy' apps. Other Top Gear apps include the Who is the Stig app, the Top Gear Stunt School and Where’s Stig. We’ve also launched the Cool Wall app for the iPad.
And now, it's time for the Cool Wall App...
We listened to your feedback, on Facebook, twitter and in the app store, and since you all wanted you own personal Cool Wall and a lot of cars to put on there, we updated the app for you. Now you can create your own Cool Walls, as well rearrange the show Cool Wall itself.
Using over 350 cars, you can place the cars where you think they should be on the Cool Wall and find out in an audio sound bite if the presenters think you've got it right. If your favourite car's missing, you can even add it into the mix. Just take a photo, input the name and stats and place it on your wall. All the images of the cars are complete with stats.
Be warned though, the car stats are highly suitable as slightly dodgy pub facts, but use sparingly when you need to win an argument. Where there was more than one model, we simply picked our favourite. For the most accurate stats, the car reviews section of www.topgear.com/uk/car-reviews is still the place to go.
What’s new in the two latest versions:
- Original 350 from first version added back in, as requested.
- Personal Cool Wall added with drag and drop feature
- If your favourite car's missing, there's the ability to add it in.
- Ability to load the full wall from the show to place the cars where you think they should be
- Quiz aspect is replaced by audio/graphic from the presenters telling you where it should be whether you agree or not!
Some new user reviews:

What's New in Version 3.2
- Stability fix
- Increased the number of cars you can place onto your wall
Extremely fun, but needs work. The actual idea and functions of the game are brilliant and moving photos is easy, plus adding your own pics is a fantastic new edition. Unfortunately, things are compromised a little by poor graphics and not quite as much choice as, as a car fan through and through, I would like. Also, the voices of the presenters have a limited number of phrases. It's really cool and great fun, but graphics need updating. :)
A must have for car fanatics
It's a great app; does exactly what it says on the tin. Only drawback is that there is nowhere near enough space for cars. Also, being able to play music while on the app, and a way of moving the pictures, instead of the rigid two per line thing. Overall great app
A Rather Good Application
This would be a thoroughly enjoyable application and a highly useful way to pass the time, however it is ruined by the inability to get past the Audis without the blasted thing crashing! And to think it cost me £1.19!
