Mobile and Wireless: iPhone Navigation Apps That Road Warriors Need Right Now
The 21st century road warrior hardly resembles the post-apocalyptic anti-hero Mad Max, the fictional film character who roared across the dystopian Australian landscape in the 1981 George Miller thriller "The Road Warrior." But there's no argument that the demands placed on real-world road warriors are any less stressful than being chased by a roving band of marauders. After all, that's your competition, so you better know where you're headed. With today's businesses embracing bring-your-own-device (BYOD) programs and the prevalence of smartphones, tablets and an ever-increasing number of applications, road warriors are more mobile than ever. When you're on the road, chances are you'll need to find an app to help you navigate the highways, city streets and airports of your final destination. One of the most popular places to find these types of applications is the Apple App Store. Here, eWEEK has pulled together a list of iPhone apps designed to get you from home to the Thunderdome, or beyond.
