Default New App Helps You Find the Right Tow Vehicle or Trailer

It's important to know everything you can about towing your boat, which is why this new towing app was created...

This actually is a product of Brett Becker, the former editor of Powerboat magazine who abandoned the go-fast boat world and started onlinetowingguide.com.

The app should be free, the information on the net is. Why download something like that, how many different trucks are you buying in what time period that you would need an app? Sounds like a waste.

Despite that I have an iPhone that practically begs me to download apps, I have not succumbed and haven't priced them. So I can't comment intelligently on pricing. What I can say, as a (very) frequent Google user, is that Google does not always provide the most useful and accurate search results. It's a great tool, don't get me wrong. But the whole point of search-style apps like this one, and I am not defending it's price because, again, I lack experience in the app-pricing/buying realm, is to provide you with the most accurate answer to your questions.

Matt,
Agreed... However, just because its on the web shouldn't dictate its value. In any case, if you need the said app and do not have good coverage, problem solved. I created a boat speed calculator and prop slip calculator because I needed them and my friends needed them...

I charge .99 cents due to covering my time in creating the app's. They are simple yet the demand is not that high.
