10 Best Apps for Truck Drivers in Canada and USA

There are so many apps in the market nowadays, to cater to most of our business needs. With so many apps available, it becomes difficult to find the right one that fulfills your business requirements. Not to worry. A lot of our clients who are basically professional drivers (truck, taxi, limousine, or rideshare (Uber, Lyft)) ask us what apps to use for various purposes. We researched and compiled a list of the 10 best apps for professional drivers (especially truckers). These apps are essential for truck drivers (and other drivers) to help them do certain important tasks and take the load off of them. So they can focus on driving and staying safe.

Let’s take a look at these apps:

1.GasBuddy

3. Zoombooks

Zoombooks is a mobile app specially made for drivers. It helps drivers save their receipts digitally, and do bookkeeping and expense management, while they are on the go. A driver just has to take picture of the receipts (of all their business expenses, gas, repairs, lodging, etc.), Zoombooks will save the receipt, do the bookkeeping and provide valuable reports. That’s how you won’t lose expense receipts, keep your bookkeeping up-to-date and save tax money at the year-end.

4. Drivewyze
