Dynolicious is an app for the iphone that uses the accelerometer in the phone to calculate 0-60 times, hp, how many Gs you're pulling as well as other things. It's been around for a while now, but I got it a couple months ago.
Here's a comparison of the app results to an actual run at the track that convinced me to get it (at 4m26s) : iPhone Dynolicious Software Better than G-Tech?
I was mostly interested in seeing what 0-60 time I could get, without beating on the car too much. I don't want to do quarter mile times hitting 100mph on the street. At first I was not launching at all and was getting around 7 seconds or so. I felt I could do better, so I read a little about launching these cars (launching the wrx) and decided to try it at lower RPM. I tried a couple mini launches (from around 2500 rpm) and my best run was 6 flat. I found myself wanting to launch harder, and practice more to get better at it, but then my responsible side kicked in and said "don't abuse your daily driver, jerkface". So I haven't used it in a couple weeks...
Anyways, I was curious if others have used the Dynolicious app, what their settings are, what they thought of it, and how they use it. I think it's great as long as it's setup properly, mounted and used on an empty road.
