We’re all waiting for the release of the first mobile phone application created for our nations’ truck drivers, “Trucker”…including us. The expected date of release, 3/11/09, has come and gone, and the anticipation for the release continues to mount. It very well could be that Apple just has many applications coming in daily, and is nothing more than the fact that they are, “backed up.” Whatever the case, we’ll all just have to sit back and wait for the soon to be released Trucker App.
Now, the good news. Along with all the information that Trucker App provides, the ability for you to participate by submitting your own content, will add a fun and welcome twist to this application.
Two examples of this feature in the Trucker App that are:
You can send us a URL of a YouTube video you like. This can be a video that you’ve taken, or just one you like and want to share from YouTube. We’re going to be posting as many as we can in the media section of the Trucker application.
Also, the splash page picture of the highway taken through the drivers side windshield of the truck (which will be the main page of the app) can be replaced with a pic you take from inside your own truck. If you like, just send us your .jpg photo file and we’ll try our best to put it up on the application for you. (File size can be no more than 200 kb.)
Hint: You can put something personal on the dashboard when you take the pic…then all will know who the photographer was.
We think these added features will add some fun and interaction among us all.
So, for now we’ll just hold on and be patient….it’s really all we can do.
Please send your YouTube video url’s and .jpg photos(no more than 200 kb) to:
