  2. Feedback Wanted on Trucker Apps for Android and iPhone

    On May 22, we were asked if we were ever going to have an app for Android and iPhone. Up until that point, we had never considered having one (or more) of our own.

    But what kind of apps do our readers want and need? We don't want to spend our time and money creating apps that no one will download and use!

    Please suggest the kind of truck drivers money saving tips mobile app you'd like to see us make (that hasn't already been created by someone else) -- and which operating system you'd like to see it run on -- through the form near the bottom of our Trucker Apps page. Thanks!

  3. Get and Share Great Money Saving Tips for Truck Drivers

    Every professional truck driver has a story about saving money or spending too much money in trucking. While we share our own successes and bone-headed mistakes on our website to help you, our site isn't just about us. Our goal is for our site to become a clearinghouse of how truckers around the world save money. Perhaps you've mastered something we haven't or you have knowledge about something we don't.

    We invite you to share
    • your review of a product or service marketed and sold to truck drivers,
    • your experience regarding a truck part you've used,
    • your experience at a truck stop or
    • your personal experience (your story) in dealing with money on the road as a trucker.

    So, what's your truck driver money saving tip?
