Love it

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 :)

Doesnt Work!

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.

Waste of money

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.

Nothing of interest Along the Way

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.

Gas stations and walmarts

As far as I can tell, this app simply makes recommendations based on quantity of Google reviews for anywhere directly along your route and its recommendations consist almost exclusively of walmarts and other high traffic grocery stores; no parks, monuments, historical sites, rest stops, etc.

Not worth it

Nothing special, I was expecting local places I love discovering hidden gems, but this is NOT that!! Lots of franchise restaurants my advice use google maps and save yourself the 3bucks :/

The best app for any road trip!

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.

Appears to be a largely useless Foursquare front end

The app just has useless suggestions from Foursquare along the route, and its terrible at suggesting anything besides restaurants. Seriously, all of the "sights" appear to be restaurants or gas stations.

Family road trip

Do not waste your money on The app!!!there are a lot of free apps that do everything this one does and better in most cases. It doesnt let you choose which route you would like to take so if the route it picks isnt the one your taking the app is doesnt have barley anything for canada when I comes to the sights part of it ,the gas stations dont give you the best price I could go on but Ive already wasted 4$ and 10 mins of my time writing this so no one else has too.if there was an option to get my money back I would!!!!!


I should have read the reviews before I paid for this app. It is useless.....please dont spend any money on this, as I wasted mine!:(

Horrible on iphone4

Button to search areas ends up over the previous searches making it impossible to use after you have looked up 3 places. Didnt even get a chance to try it out properly.

Love the specials!

I found 3 cool spots in a row that had 1/2 off drinks and appetizers. So cool!

Love this app!!!

The only reason Im giving the app a 4/5 is because I wish it had a radius search option (search for ____ within 25 miles from current location), not just a destination (point A - point B). I use this app to search for field trip ideas for my children (we homeschool). Other than that, this app is great! I use it almost daily :)

Love it!

Great app. Stop reading this review and just buy it. It does exactly what it says it does and I use it all. the. time. Recommend!

Closes too often

This app closes out on me way more often than it should. I did not think I was spending money on a faulty app. Please fix this.

Should have known better

I really wish I would have paid attention to the number of ratings rather than just look at the number of stars. Not a very useful app for the money... but I was excited for it to work. Needs some more time to mature and have enough content.
