Allen Smith, webmaster of the TruthAboutTrucking.com site/blog and author of the e-book of the same name, has introduced the Trucker app for the iPhone, now available in a “>Lite” version via Truckerapp.com and the Apple online store. The app combines social and business functions, including a Twitter button, mileage and routing applications, a special trucking Youtube channel and more. Widely anticipated March 10 among the on-highway iPhone set, the app arrived last week, and real-time user feedback is already a functional dynamic of the potentially ever-changing application, according to the video posted below. In it, Smith walks us through some of the features. Enjoy, and if anyone out there is using the app at present, send this blogger an email, why don’t you: email@example.com.
