Pros and cons of Along the Way - Route Search app for iPhone and iPad

Along the Way - Route Search app good for

This is an awesome app for planning trips. I have this on my iPhone 6. I had a few glitches starting out but after emailing their helpful and efficient team, it was all fixed up in no time! Love this app :)
The family and I found some great little spots on our trip to Chicago last week. Ive been telling everyone about this app. Thanks!
I never go on a road trip without it! Keeps me on my route while I stop for anything I need.

Some bad moments

I cannot get the app to work. Ive deleted and reinstalled several times. Frustrating and a waste of $.
Paid $2.99 for this app and I cant even type in my destination. Wont give me a list or any way for me to input my info. Disappointed!
This app is awful and a waste of money. I am so disappointed. Its not even that the given locations are terrible, its the fact that I have never gotten past the area where you put in your starting point and destination, because it doesnt work.
Deleted. Yelp is better for food, road trippers is better for sightseeing, Expedia is better for hotels, and all those apps are free. The one value add this app could have had was cheap gas and it doesnt have that. Dont waste your 3 bucks.
This app showed us nothing but fast food locations along the way. I found a lot of neat stuff along our trip by just watching the road and signs. Waste of 2.99, wish I could return it and get my money back.
This app provides very little in way of help finding good places during a road trip. I found it completely unhelpful. The app doesnt populate places very well and unless youre looking for a chain resturant or Walmart, youre better off with Road Tripper or Trip Advisor. We travelled from Boston to Portland, OR and back without any help from this app....and not for a lack of trying. I opened it every few hours just to check out what it had for me. Bottom line, better using your phones memory on something else.
