I use all major truckstop app's. They all have one. Truckster is pretty good also. I also add webpages to my home screen. Like truckmiles.com which give you daily update on fuel prices.

Fuel Finder is not a app but a free website that is like a mini free promiles.

Type in starting point and ending point and the truckstops you like and it will give you the shortest route and the cost of fuel at the truck stops.

Another handy app is Road Trip it works just like fuel gauges and can track mpg and liters per 100 k befor fuel gauges got updated for us cross border guys that fueled in liters and gallons I fousn this app really helpful! you can transfer your data into fuel gauges when you getr time.

Would be really slick if fuel gauges had an app that did this directly...just a thought!!

I found Turboscan to work really well. It has eliminated the need for a fax.

For those still using paper logs, you might try drivers daily log. I have been using it for six months on my iPad and love it. Just make sure you have a way to print your logs if asked when you have a dot inspection.

I use the following apps:

Truckster - Find truckstops, rest areas, weigh stations, hotels, Transflo locations, Speedco & even Wal-Marts.

Road Trip - Track fuel mpg, cost per mile, & expenses. Can do year-to-date, lifetime (how ever far you want to enter old fuel tickets) & even specific dates.

RoadNinja - Detects your location & displays places up to 3 miles of the nearest exit.

GasBuddy - Not just a web site anymore. Searches for fuel prices, sorted by nearest, or cheapest

TransfloNow! - Just like the one in the truckstop, only on your iPhone/iPad

YPmobile - Yellow pages.

TWC (The Weather Channel)

Google Maps

Its an expensive app but I use Co-Pilot Truck Edition GPS. $149.99 very useful and I like not have a second gadget to power or a GPS unit in my windshield. Downloads all the maps to your phone one time (do this over wi-fi) No monthly fee, No data usage. It is truck edition and very good, better than Garmin but like all GPS's if you miss your turn use you head and be careful getting back on track it will put you where you dont want to be until your back on course

Update

Another Great App is MyWarn for weather. It keeps track where you are and notifies you of any sever weather in your location... Not the whole county..and from the notification you can immediately go to radar and other information sources. Piece of mind
