Ice Road Truckers iPhone app lets fans hit the frozen road

A new iPhone app lets fans of Ice Road Truckers hit the road.It's doubtful the tough guys (and gal) driving north to Alaska on the current season of Ice Road Truckers are big video game players. They're too busy staying alive while driving tons of cargo over roads would keep sane people home from school.

But, that's not stopping The (former) History Channel from launching its first paid iPhone and iPod Touch game with an application that allows users to command 18-wheelers across Arctic roads.

Fans of the show -- and of snowy truck driving in general -- can download a free, "lite" test version of the game now through Apple iTunes.

The success of that freebie testifies to the surprising popularity of Ice Road Truckers, as History reports more than 680,000 downloads so far, with nearly 350,000 of those downloads flowing in the US.

The complete, paid version of the app hits the road on June 28 through the iTunes store for $3.99.

When you have DISH you can be assured that you are going to have the best equipment and get the most out of your system. I work for DISH and I like the fact that a TV everywhere option is avail. You can take a tablet or Smartphone and hook it up with Sling Media and now you have a portable TV. There is HD free for life. 200 channels of HD will satisfy them HD needs. There is DISH Online where you can watch live TV as well as DVR recordings. Find out more at http://besttvforme.com/

This game is horrible. I downloaded it last week because I'm a fan of the show, but you can tell it's a rushed effort and not that closely tied to the show, outside of 'driving on ice' which it doesn't do very well.
