I'm going to buy one of those Bluetooth dongles so I can hook my phone to the OBD II system. I have an iPhone and I haven't seen any apps that really impress me.

Recommendations please.

For your Ford, there is nothing better than Forscan. Nothing.

Looking for the best app while buying the cheapest adapter...

I saw a Porsche today with Korean tyres.

I recall that the bluetooth adapters don't work on iOS, most iOS users have wifi ODB dongles it seems.

Not really relevant. If the cheapest adapter works (not defective) and supports the OBDII protocol(s) you need (many do not, hit or miss before canbus), then you get all the performance out of them, unlike generic tires on a sports car.

A person could buy a cheap $30-40 Android phone just for this purpose.
