Any "APS" for Motor home travel

We travel in a Class A DP. Just purchased a new iPad for the DW. Does anyone know of any APS available for Campgrounds, Parks, points of interest, road conditions, routing etc.

Are you talking about "apps" for your iPad?

Yes, apps. Gotta get the terminology right. I have the following on my iPhone and of course they'll work on an iPad:

Woodalls
RA Camping (Reserve America)
Camp Finder (Finds campgrounds based on your location. Really handy on the road).
Gas Buddy

And of course...

One of my favorite apps on my phone while traveling is My DAT Trucker Services. This one was free on the Android app store. It shows most truck stops, the rest areas and walmarts. It goes off of GPS location so it shows closest to you.
I also have c:geo which we use for geocaching.
Of course we also use Gas Buddy.
Skype mobile and Kakao Talk are 2 voice and text services that are free and with Skype on the computer we can video call the kids and granddaughter.
PdaNet with this one we can connect the cell phone use it like a router to then connect the laptop to. If there is no cell service it won't work but not that many places with no cell anymore.
Cardex to keep all those store cards and to go along with that is Barcode Scanner so that we can check on prices while in the stores.

The Allstays Camp & RV is not free but has a wealth of information.

Go to the APP Store. Sign in. Use the search function and just type in

RV

take your pick. Many are free, some are worth the price. If you see on that particularly meets your fancy, come back and ask about it, unless it is free. Then just download it and see if you want to keep it on the device.

Happy trails.

One app we love, and is useful whether in the RV or not, is "Weather Bug". I find it much more user friendly than the Weather Channel app, besides forcasts, it will show you real time weather radar, showing you right where you are relative to that big storm you just heard about on the radio or are looking at out your windshield.

Absolutely, and Radar Now for a quick view of the radar.
