iPhone Application TRUCKER Makes Debut at the Las Vegas Truck Show


The Great West Truck Show in Las Vegas was the Big Trucking event last week which displayed some of the most innovative and technological gadgets and equipment,  not to mention some of the most eye catching and creative trucks around.

Attending the show was trucking’s well known and respected Lady Trucker, affectionately know as TruckerDesiree.  As most know, Desiree is a driver who is extremely active within the trucking community, sharing her thoughts, ideas, and concerns with her fellow drivers and CDL students. Desiree has joined us and so many others, as we all attempt to bring about positive change within the trucking industry.

This time though, Trucker Desiree was at the Big Truck Show in Las Vegas as an attendee, sharing the Apple iPhones first and only Application created by Allen Smith ( developer Infomedia, Inc) for the Professional Truck Driver….“TRUCKER.

Desiree shared with Attendees and Vendors the advantages of having an iPhone as she demonstrated the iPhone App TRUCKER benefits and capabilities. Desiree said that there were many at the GW Truck Show that had not known about the Trucker Application, but after she demonstrated it to them they were very impressed, especially  since Version 1.1 still downloads for the modest cost of 99 cents.  She said that many were most impressed with the vast Drivers Resource Page which continues to grow with the much needed info that drivers need on a daily basis. Many of those there who owned an iPhone downloaded Trucker and are now using it.

Reviews for Trucker can be read on iPhone Trucker News.

While attending the GW Show, TruckerDesiree was also filmed for a documentary which will be aired in the near future.  We’ll discuss this in more detail in a later post.  Here’s Desiree and the film crew taking a break:

Another attendee at the GW Truck Show was Damian from SmartUnion. Damian is another strong advocate for drivers and is an avid user of the iPhone app Trucker. Damian and Desiree, along with so many others, were able to meet each other in person for the first time.  We’re already looking forward to meeting everyone at the Dallas Truck Show in August. Hope to see you all there!
