apps for truck drivers

One of the hardest things about being a truck driver is the fact that you almost never get to spend as much time with your loved ones as you would like. That’s why we’ve assembled some of the best apps to help truck drivers keep in touch with family and loved ones when they are on the road.

  • Sometimes, nothing can take the place of getting some face to face time with the people you love. Skype is a free app that lets you see and chat with your family members without burning up your cellphone minutes. So long as both of you are signed up, Skype is free to use.
