Without truck drivers our world would look a lot different. If you wear clothing, live indoors, sleep in a bed, eat food, watch tv, play games, or shop at a grocery store, you can thank a truck driver.

Living on the road can be an adventure and allow you to travel the country seeing all of the amazing sites. Luckily there are now apps to make sure you know where all of these sites are!

Need to take a detour? Organize your logs? Find the best truck stop or restaurant in the area? There’s an app for that too!

Here are a few good ones to try out while you’re safely parked at a rest stop.

Waze Social GPS, Maps & Traffic

Waze is the world's largest community-based traffic and navigation app. Join other drivers in your area who share real-time traffic and road info, saving everyone time and gas money on their daily commute.

WhatsApp Messenger

WhatsApp Messenger is available for iPhone and Androids and uses your 3G or WiFi to message your besties while not charging your text message costs from your provider.

iExit Interstate Exit Guide

Open the iExit app on or near any interstate nationwide and watch the magic unfold. It finds you automatically, shows you exits ahead, and allows for easy searching. Your GPS will tell you how to get there but iExit will tell you where to stop along the way!


AroundMe quickly identifies your position and allows you to choose the nearest Bank, Bar, Gas Station, Hospital, Hotel, Movie Theater, Restaurant, Supermarket, Theatre and Taxi.
