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.


Really?
Paranoid much?
You're not paranoid if it's all true. And it is. It just depends on whether it bothers you or not. Most people don't mind being followed, tracked, and listened to, they just say "I don't have anything to worry about, I haven't done anything".

DutchmenSport...When I use GasBuddy on Android or on the computer website, they don't have the map in satellite view where I can see the gas station layout. I can click on the gas station (on website) or click on "Get directions" on Android app...then it goes to Google Maps, where I can change to satellite view. Not a big deal, but it's an extra step.

Because of what you've written, I'm just curious if the iPhone/Pad GasBuddy app actually shows the map in satellite view within the app. I wrote to GasBuddy quite awhile ago and they told me for some reason they can't get satellite view into their Android app.

Not really RV Apps.
I like Evernote, Twitter, Next Episode, Weather Underground
Happy Dayz, Nextdoor, Sensored Life (temp alert) and Wunderlist.

For finding fuel in a class A DP, I just found "Fuel Book", it does a great job of getting low price fuel along a route, much better than GasBuddy. It only shows places with truck lanes.

I really like iExit for finding gas stations and rest areas on interstate highways. Using what highway you are on and what direction you are going (which it figures out automatically) it tells you how far away each exit is and what's there.

I do not have any "apps". In fact, I have no device that can handle any such a thing.
I have a road atlas, and a Woodalls campground book. Yes, they are old, and I should get new ones. I know the Atlas is still available in book form, at Walmart and Costco.
The Woodalls may be available only in an "spp" in the modern world. If so, I will keep my old one. It is out of date, but most of the information is still usable.

As someone else stated, my cell phone is a telephone, nothing more. I do not even send texts.
