    I've taken the last year off and am gearing up to get back out there. I can't remember everything I used to use and always looking for new tools so what software, apps, or websites make everything easier? If anything I've listed has a better alternative please let me know.

    Loyalty


    -T/A Petro App
    -Pilot Flying J App
    -Love's App

    Weather

    -General weather apps have always seemed to run slow on my device and I always found it easier to just search a location
    -Windly App

    Trip Planning


    -Google Maps
    -Trucker Path App
    -State specific 511 websites especially with camera links

    Equipment Services

    -Cat Scale App

    Personal Time

    -Uber App
    -Podcast Addict App

    Business Services

    Don't get much time to go fishing on the road but if I do I'll definitely check out that site and get a nice blowback rig for hooking carp.

    “Blue Beacon”
    “My Radar” Try it out.
    “Cam Scanner”
    “CSCPay Mobile” I use this app to start washers and dryer’s when it’s offered at truck stops. You even get a complimentary free wash or two.
