Who uses a "Smart phone"???

I know a lot of people use smart phone and there are thousands of different App's for them. So my question would be what is the best app that you use on your smart phone? One of my favorite apps if "Fuel Log" you enter in how much gas you put in at the pump and your mileage, it will keep track of your MPG and show you how many miles you have gotten per tank, when you filled up, how much it cost to fill up etc... Pretty cool app to have. Another would be "CoPilot live USA" I Use my phone as a GPS unit, mounted right on the handlebars this app works the same as a Garmin or Tom Tom. Just thought I would throw this out there and see if someone else has any bike related apps that they use.

When the Devil knocks at your door ask Jesus to answer it!!!

Work gave me an I Phone and after a year the only thing I use it for is making and received calls. Most folks do not know you can use them for that.

I use an App called SQUARE.

It allows me to accept Credit Cards that otherwise I would not be able to do when on remote jobs.

I use Pandora internet radio more than any other App while riding.
I also use the Maps app now and again.

Some of the apps I use on my iPhone while I'm out riding:

1. Mapquest for Mobile (GPS)
2. AccuWeather (live radar)
3. Free Flashlight (use it all the time)
4. Pano (taking panoramic pictures)

I'll have to check out the Fuel Log app.

Allstate sponsors a good free app for bikers called "Good Ride". I like to use it to log bike rides and times.

My current favorite app is Gasbuddy. You can report and find the cheapest gas prices anywhere. It's so irritating to pay for a fill up only to find it 10 cents cheaper a few miles down the road. No more, you sneaky filling stations!
