RVParky - great for finding campgrounds on short notice

Trucker Path - shows rest areas and gas stations. Also low bridges

Copilot RV - keeps you off roads you don't fit on

Waze - traffic alert and LEO locations

TV Antenna Helper - which way to point you OTA antenna

Allstays - finds everything you need - gas, propane, repair shops, campgrounds. Just don't trust the GPS. Take the address and put it into Google Maps

Some kind of weather alerter like Weatherbug or NOAA Weather

Well I often get in "Discussions" with folks who think they know what's in the BIBLE so I have two of those (Catholic which I am and KJV for them)
I also have the United States Bibles.. That is the Constitution and declaration of Independence.. I suggest all US citizens have those two.. Interesting (if short) reading.

For RV use. Google Maps is my #1 app.
Swag Bucks (A time waster) pays me 25 bucks from time to time.

I also have a bunch of store apps (In fact I've a group called stores) Key Ring (Saves all my loyalty cards to the phone) Shopping list and Checkout 51 (another pays me from time to time app).

Assorted RV apps like All Stays and RV-Parky or RV assistant

My Pilot (Flying J) Loves and the like

Cracker Barrel if they have an app (overnight parking with Supper(Dinner) and breakfast).

Wal*mart (Overnight parking with groceries and gas

and a bunch of RADIO apps.. Some let me TALK as well as listen (My USER ID is a Ham Call)

All the normal **** like calculator Banking apps (Came in handy yesterday) Text editors and the like

Why did the banking apps come in handy. I had to put together 1600 dollars for a repair Took all 3 of my plastic retangles but I still have $$ left. not a lot but enough to last to pay day YIPPIE.

ANd the slide goes in
And the slide goes out
And it did not the day before yesterday.


Home is where I park it.

Allstays, RVParky, for finding campgrounds and other attractions. Scan & Go for shopping at Sam’s Club. OpenVPN and a VPN subscription for doing banking online at hotspots. ProHDR X for taking photos especially in challenging lighting. GasBuddy for finding fuel at good prices. Pages, Numbers for “office work.” Calculatrice for an RPN calculator. And of course my bank’s app to simplify banking even when there is no nearby branch, and especially to deposit checks from afar.

In our case, actually none. Once I found out that most 'apps' sell your information to 3rd party companies for the purpose of tracking and stats, I eliminated all of them. We use the cell phones for communicating now (calls) only.
