Roadtreking: Apps to stay informed on major news story

From the bloggers at Roadtreking.

We learned of the dreadful Nov. 13, attacks on Paris as we were driving through the night from Georgia towards our Michigan home. While millions of North Americans watched the story on television, we turned to apps to do the same thing, piping the audio from my smartphone through the vehicle’s sound system.

Both Direct TV, Xfinity and AT&T offer apps that allow you to watch live streaming television just as if you were home.

I listened to CNN, Fox News  and Al Jazeera America as I drove, Jennifer watched the story unfold on the screen of my iPhone 6S Plus.

The key, of course, is having a strong cell service. In our case, we use the the Wilson Electronics Sleek 4G – Vehicle Cellular Signal Booster to ensure I have a strong signal, o help pull in the maximum signal, I substituted the small little stubby antenna that comes with the Sleek with the Wilson Dual Band – 800-1900 MHz Magnet Mount Antenna. I have it mounted at the top of the vehicle and I snaked in the coax cable around the drivers door.
