Fresh Android Apps for Apr. 21: TruckSmart, Ride the City

by Ian Black

Hit the road in a commercial truck (TruckSmart) or on two wheels (Ride the City).

TruckSmart (Free)

My brother drives a commercial truck and I’ve learned from him that truckers need all the help they can get.

This app provides information on truck stops – where they are, what they offer. Find out which have gas and diesel, heavy truck maintenance, Wi-Fi, 24-hour stores, quick serve restaurants, showers, available parking, and much more.

Breaker, breaker good buddy.

Ride the City (Free)

Get out of your car and get up on your bike!

This app works like other navigation apps that you know – with one big difference – it finds routes that are safe for cyclists. The directions avoid busy streets, highways, and steep hills and opt for bike lanes, bike paths, and green ways.

The app currently covers 26 major world cites which include parts of Australia, the US, and Europe.
