iPad and RV'ing

Doing a little research here and have some questions for you all since I am not an RV owner myself.

For those of you who have an iPad (any generation) what are some of your favorite apps that you use while on the road or in the RV?

Any app that you really wish existed?

I don't have my iPad on me, but from memory...
  • Forest River Forums app (of course!)
  • aFree Level and Clinometer HD - I use this to occasionally adjust the bubbles on my jack and the stick-on levels on the camper.
  • RV Checklist - various lists you can use and edit.
  • The Weather Channel and NOAA Weather Radar - for weather updates.
  • First Aid by American Red Cross - for emergencies.
  • Reserve America Camping - my main reserve site.
  • Google Maps
  • Allstays - been looking at this $10 app as a campground guide and in planning trips.
  • Sanidumps
  • AAA

Does that include smart phones? My favorites are:

This forum (good for emergancies too)
Compass app
Level app
Flashlight app
Mapquest

I wish there was an app for RV friendly gas stations.

Android user here. However:

Weather network (used most often).
Weather radar
Flashlight

That's really about all. No specific RV related apps.

I like and use many of the apps noted here. For us Canadians, the TimmyMe app is a great one.

I've tried some compass apps on our iPad but never had much luck with them, so I keep a real compass in the trailer.

I just bought my DW a Nexus 7 for her birthday so we'll have to try out the Google apps to see how they compare to the iPad apps.

i use the geocache app also for some free fun. yp app helps locate places close by, dont have my tablet with me at work but most apps have already been listed. foursqures let friends keep track of your travels when you check in and some places offer feebies when you check in, Got a free oil change once for checking in at a car dealership, deserts, and food
