    Hi. I get bored while driving long distances and would like to have an app which I can use microphone to do a chat similar to a cb radio. Maybe even with multiple channels. Obviously with no or little screen input to distract while driving. Does anyone know an app that would fit the bill?

    No, I mean something more like a cb radio that a trucker would use. Allows a voice group talk on a channel/station/frequency. Wouldn't require looking at the screen other then maybe a push to talk type button

    As a followup, I found an app called iPTT that fit the bill perfectly.

    The app appears to only be for iPhone. But it can be a group of iPhones, not just one to one communication

    You actually bought it? That's what I read on the reviews so I didn't even bother trying

    Free homie.
    And there is this English channel I was listening to last night, it was quite entertaining, i would have paid $0.99 for it.
    Very cool idea / app. Just not executed very well.

    Try an app simply called "CB". It's free, and super easy to use, basically just a PTT button without a ton of distracting extras. There are actually quite a few truckers I've overheard on it. Plus it's got some great reviews - the only bad one was from a guy who didn't realize you couldn't talk to real CBs with it!

    Lol! Yesterday I heard a couple of rednecks very politely tell some foul-mouthed kid to get off "their" channel. Then they went back to talking about what trucks they're going to buy next and what dip they chew.

    The scanner apps are cool, but that CB app was out there.
