Torque is great, but there are apps for specific models that are better for everyday use, in my opinion. Hybrid Assistant is great for Toyota hybrids and MyGreenVolt for Chevy Volts. I'm sure you can set up much of the same gauges in Torque, but there are some features that are unique. Hybrid Assistant's HV battery capacity test is pretty neat, I used it to confirm that my battery rebuild got me pretty close to stock capacity.

For readers, the OBDLink LX and MX are the only ones I would spend more than $20 on. Hybrid Assistant and MyGreenVolt both recommend them for maximum speed and functionality. A decent cheap one would probably be fine for older cars that don't have as much going on, the trick is finding a decent one that hasn't changed since it received good reviews.
