A Simple Way to Support Our Community
This page contains links to apps, books, podcasts and other things we find useful. We often get asked: what app do you use for (fill in the blank)? Little by little we gathered a list of the most requested items and here they are!
We have use, listen or read all the items listed here. Please note that several of these links are affiliate codes. YogaSlackers receives a small incentive from items purchased following these links at no cost to you.
Quick Page Navigation
While we absolutely love these apps, used them on a daily basis and would recommend them to you regardless, we think is important for you to know that we participate in the Apple Affiliate program and we may earn some cash from qualifying purchases.

Essential Anatomy 5
A full-featured anatomical reference app that includes male and female models, with 11 systems and 8,200 anatomical structures. The app is fully 3D, meaning that you can view any structure in isolation, as well as from any angle.
iMuscle 2 provides users with the ability to zoom into an area on our 3D human body and tap on a muscle to reveal exercises and stretches targeted to the development and/or rehabilitation of that specific muscle.
Nomad Life Apps
This is a collection of apps and websites we use to find a place to sleep while living on the road. No one app is perfect. The combination has proven to be very useful when searching for a place to stay nearby.
iOverlander is a database of places for overlanders and travelers. It includes camping, hotels, restaurants, mechanics, water, propane filling and may other categories. Details are listed for each place, including amenities, photos, date last visited and GPS coordinates.
This is not an app, but a website. You can use your smart phone's GPS to find camping near you or even use it as a trip planner to plan your route from coast to coast.
Rest Stops USA
Rest stops are not our favorite place to stay. But they do offer the comfort of bathrooms and running water. They can often be a good place to stay if you need to stay near a city and don't want to be asked to moved during the middle of the night.
Other Travel Apps
Some of our favorite gear. We use them on the road, while traveling and adventuring.
Aquamira Pressurized Hydration Reservoir
We have been using these reservoirs since they were 'Geigerrig' for hiking and also everyday nomad life. There are the most durable and effective water bladders we have tested.
We started hanging them in the backseat of the Peace Love Car for easy access to water. In SlackerVan we installed one inside the fridge. Added a permanent hose coming out of the fridge, so we can drink cold water with ease.
Compeed Advanced Blister Care Cushions
Raquel started using this cushion blister care when hiking the Road to Santiago over 10 years ago. We have not found a more effective product to prevent and heal blisters.
