RV Phone apps - What do you use and why?

I added a few applications to my phone:

RV Parky - Campground guide with rest-stops and Wallymarts. Included price, facilities, ratings and phone number. Enter an address or zip code an pick campgrounds from a map.

Camper Leveler - Great little app for leveling RVs. It has a compass so you can park with the sun in the correct direction. Set the phone anywhere in your camper on level ground and hit "calibrate", as long as the phone is in the same place it will tell you how many inches to raise each wheel.

MagicJack - If you have a magic jack phone you can make and receive calls from your home number anywhere you have wifi.

Tango: music app that allows me to gook my iPad up to the camper stereo and control the music selection, volumes, playlist and any other normal item from my phone outside. Works both ways, phone to iPad and iPad to phone, you just choose player or remote when you start the app.

On the iPhone you simply go to the Compass app (built in) and slide it sideways...gives a leveler front to back/side to side or "bubble" leveler...all built in for free.

I used it every trip

Check your stereo...on the newer rigs (ours is a 2014 Sabre 32-RCTS) they may have Bluetooth built in. I simply sync our iPhones or iPad with the stereo and control it from anywhere within range...the picnic table, campfire, etc...selection, volume, etc.

Ever wander around your new campground, trying to figure out which direction tv antennas are pointing?
Try "TV Antenna Helper FREE" app. We lay it on the bed, noting direction and use it to point our rotating antenna. It works by showing stations in your area with signal strength. Then go outside, and see how many other antennas are pointed backwards!
With "TuneIn Radio", we usually get better reception on more stations than the on-board radio systems (not saying much there ), then bluetooth it through your favorite speakers.
