You help support Tales Told From The Road when you purchase iPhone/iPod/iPad Apps through this page.

All apps listed have been installed and used on my iPhone 3GS. Some are specifically designed for travel away from home, while others are well-suited to use both on the road and at home.

This list is provided simply for your information without being any endorsement of any app or guarantee that you will find it useful. Read the app description and customer reviews on iTunes to determine before buying whether the app suits your needs.

Some apps are available in one version for iPhone and iPodTouch, and another version for the iPad; others may be optimized for use on all these devices. Some apps can only used with the iPad. Make sure your device uses the iOS — the operating system — required to run the app.

Many, but not necessarily all, apps are updated from time to time. Updates may or may not be free. Listings for businesses or other entities may or may not be current.

Prices may change from time to time; some apps have a free and a paid version. Some apps are free, but require signing up for a subscription or paid service before they can be used.
