Heres a cool new app called VOXER it puts the PUSH TO TALK capability on any Apple or Andriod phone it works very well, Although I suggest you build your own ROOMS and add freinds as you want rather then click the FACEBOOK app which will join you with all your facebook friends...

VOXER
I've used Voxer for about 6 months, and it's a great app. It's as close as you'll get to Nextel.

Another one I use is

Mileage.

Every time I fuel, I enter in the number of gallons, price and mileage and it gives you statistics like mpg, cost per mile, etc.

Hi Everyone,

Here are 2 more new apps that I created to help me on the road.
The first is called TruckComm. It's had plenty of revisions, and like all works of art, it seems it's never finished.
TruckComm2.
I use it to send to my Dispatcher/Wife my where abouts and Load Status using SMS (Text Messaging).
I simply check the boxes, after entering the load reference, BOL, POD, Stop Number, etc., and hit Send.
Pics are attached.

The second is LoadRate. This one I created to prevent those pesky folks who offer us the freight, from taking advantage of our usually tired state of mind. I can quickly assess whether I should pass on a load.
It saves my MPG and my Preferred rate, so when the offer comes through, I can enter it and instantly know if the offer is low and by how much, plus, an estimated cost of the fuel it will take.

I added a What If section to use for the rapid paced changes the often occur while on the phone negotiating. It has tipped the scales in my favor more than once.
Take a Look.
