There is an app called "KEEPER" by "Callpod" that i find very useful.

It is basically a secure database for all your sensitive information that uses military encryption - whatever that is!

It works very well, is intuitive to use and has an excellent search feature.


When you synch your ipod with a mac (not sure if it also works with pc) it automatically puts an encrypted backup into your version of itunes.

It is a free app, but if you want, you can buy aversion for your Mac (I did) and then, you can synch KEEPER on your touch and your laptop wirelessly as long as you are both on the same wifi connection.

For me it has worked very well. I have my ipod touch double password protected, ie one password to open the ipod, another to get into keeper. That fact, plus having the encryption makes me fee a little nore secure carrying all the sensitive info in the ipod.


Oh yes, I have another very simple app (free) called "If Found" it allows you easily to put a favourite photo along with a message as a splash screen that comes up as soon as you turn the ipod on.

This is the first thing someone would see when turning on the ipod.


I have my name and phone number there hoping that if I lost it and some honest person found it, I might have a chance of getting it back!

I have tried several "To Do" list apps, and the one hat works best for me is "Zenbe."

I think it costs $2.99


Very easy to use, versatile - can create many different lists, apart from a general "to do" list, I keep lists on many things - such as things not to forget when I go to collect our AS from the storage yard, things not to forget when I winterize the trailer, etc. etc.

The older I get, the more useful these reminder lists seem to be!


A nice feature of Zenbe Lists is that you can synch it with a version that you can store on their website. The synch is wireless if you have your computer and ipod touch on the same wifi wireless router.

Does anybody have experience with the "Tapatalk" app?

My husband's V-Bulletin forum has this enanbled and it seems to make using the forums on his iPhone ALOT easier...they just adapted it though, so he can't really go into detail - but it seems like something that would be cool for this forum to adopt as well.

Skype is also available for the iPhone. It is great if you are outside the US borders for calling back into the US or anywhere outside for that matter.

I don't have an iPhone, but I have a Droid Eris and use the Tapatalk android version. I use it all the time for accessing androidforums.com and really like it. I would love to be able to read airforums in Tapatalk.

Have't seen yelp mentioned yet. That's a good one for finding customer reviewed food, services etc. near you.

Hi - On our last trip, my husband and I were really happy with the AAA Trip Tik Mobile - it told us locations of gas stations, whether or not there was diesel and, in some cases, if the station was RV accessible. Most stations also had their prices listed as well. We also used it to find fun things to do on the way to our destination.

I use gasbuddy. I haven't tried any other gas price apps, but I've gotten good results in CA with gb.

2011 Apps

Here's a list from the Chronicle, one of our local papers, of some great apps that debuted in 2011.

The best apps of 2011

In addition to this list, we really like Find My iPhone. App Store - Find My iPhone

It helps locate your iOS or Mac device without subscribing to MobileMe's $99/year service.

Hope everyone had a great 2011! Best wishes for a wonderful, tech savvy, web enabled, wireless mobility new year!
