Note taking app. iPad app only, not available on iPhone. You can insert photos of the fire ground, fire behaviour, etc and annotate the photos and email back to fire control (assuming connectivity) in PDF format. Gives good visual feedback to those not at the fire.

Make sure your photo apps have GPS ‘ON’ in the settings so that photos are ‘geo-tagged’
