So what phone apps do you use to aid you while your on duty?

Pc/hs/vc apps?

Pill id apps?

US Cop, it has pill ID, case laws, etc.

Also on my home screen (iPhone), I have shortcuts to the Arizona Revised Statutes (Az Laws) website, decodethis.com, wunderground.com, and the NCIC color codes.

I have an app for compass. It shows the direction that I need sometimes for crime scene sketchs.

my dept made it manadatory to download an app that tracks us and shows our location on a screen in the WC's office. It also sets off an alarm when your are idle for an hour or form a negative opinion about something that happened at work....we are waiting for a grant that will purchase a chip that will be placed in our necks to monitor b/a levels and other action on and off duty. j/k

It may come to that eventually.

Safari takes care of most of my needs because I can browse my personal email and google porn if I get bored. I also have IMDB so I can read up on new movies and watch trailers. Flashlight is a good app since I am too lazy to carry a real one (they're heavy!) and the strobe function is cool when I feel a little disco coming on in the car. There's the horoscope app, recipe exchange app, and shazam so I can find out what song is playing on the radio. Youtube is good for searching for reviews on toys I want to buy.

And the ultimate app for work, ANGRY BIRDS!

I hope they come out with a Hartford app soon so I can track my gazillion dollar pension on a minute to minute basis..

Notorious ....awesome post :-) +1 for angry birds.

I use epocrates for a pill id, white pages to get phone numbers/addresses, tape-talk to record convos, and of course google is my best friend.

This thread caused me to purchase US Cop for $2.99...Stupid thing doesn't even work. Angry Birds is still my number one on duty app.

trapster...to see when someone registers a radar/lidar spot that I use. It's kind of aggrevating, but sometimes awesome to know that so many people have published certain spots and I can still get them

Don't use your personal cell phone for work unless you don't mind it and your records becoming part of discovery.

You can attempt to claim 1040 of the evidence code and seek the assistance of the DA if it becomes an issue. Although there are no guarantees.

I find the apps to be a bit slow and I end up back in my cheaters and quick codes. Just faster for me...
