  • Great, but one thing is really bad

    By RetFoosh
    Awesome app. Love its ability to plan my vacation road trip across the country. There is just one thing that really really stinks about the app - you have to access your waypoints in three different ways in order to use this app, and switching between the 3 views really really really gets annoying and cumbersome. Here’s what I mean: 1. The map view. You use the map view to add a waypoint, either by manually dropping one (a feature unintuitively tucked away under the “info” icon), or by searching for your destination. You can conveniently search for “library in Waco TX” to add all the city’s libraries at once, which is very helpful. You also have to use the map view to delete a waypoint, which is super tedious when you are in one of the two list views and you have to go back to map view, find the waypoint on the map, zoom in enough to select it and not a nearby waypoint, and open up the waypoint to delete it. This is also the only way to rename a Way point. 2. There is an icon at the left top of the screen that looks like two street signs. This opens the list view that lets you reorder your waypoints, and set the amount of time you will spend at each one. But this view doesn’t then interactively show you what time you will arrive at the subsequent waypoint. To see that info, you have to open the other list view. 3. There is an icon on the bottom of the screen that looks like a bunch of horizontal lines. This opens up the route wayoint list in a form that displays the dates and times when you will depart from and arrive at various waypoints.It also displays addresses, whereas the other list view just gives waypoint titles. Clicking on a waypoint brings up the map view in navigation mode with the next segment of your trip highlighted. So let’s imagine what it takes to make changes to your itinerary. You decide you want to add Magnoia Market to your Waco tour, but AFTER stopping at the grocery store, so the auto-routing feature won’t be used. First you use the map view to search for and add Magnolia Market. The app presents you a list to choose where you want to place this new waypoint. But because this list just shows titles, you’re not quite sure because you forgot row rename some of your other waypoints from addresses to the store names you are stopping at. So you then zoom in to map view (because every time you add a waypoint the map zooms back out), and click on it and edit the names of the other waypoints so when you go back to list view you’ll know what each waypoint actually represents. Then you go the the list view where you can re-order the waypoints so you can put Magnolia Market AFTER the grocery store. You aren’t sure how much time your itinerary gives you to spend at Magnolia Market so you switch to the OTHER list view to see what time today’s itinerary puts you at the hotel. You see it’s 3:00, so you figure that gives you 2 hours to spend at Magnolia. You GO BACK to the first list view to set the layover time to 2 hours, then go back to the OTHER list view to see the results. All this stinking back and forth within the user interface gets really really tedious. Why can’t there be one single view to rename, reorder, set layover times, and inspect itinerary schedules?
  • Subscription ?

    By OneWickedWolf
    Just playing around with the app , seems like a really good app compared to others , easy to add and edit waypoints . However there is no way I will pay a monthly subscription for the amount of times I will use it .
  • Most responsive Dev I’ve ever encountered!

    By LtlRedX
    Once again I’ve increased my ⭐️ rating because this Dev is simply the most responsive one I’ve ever come across. Not only did he take the time to contact me a second time and explain what I had obviously misunderstood about the difference between the app’s subscription service and one-time in-app upgrade purchase. He also he also explained why there are two levels and how they appeal to different users. I highly recommend this DEV no matter what app of his you may be using. And I will be looking at what else he has developed. Increased ⭐️ rating because Dev responded to my email inquiry literally within minutes. However I still feel verbal turn by turn navigation is a basic necessity & should be included in the Premium level subscription.
  • Hard to use

    By 4699bd
    I was looking forward to an app that would show my route with dates so that I could have one place to plan the itinerary. I grew frustrated trying even to track mileage and travel time from one point to another. Please add dates to waypoints and automatic mileage from one waypoint to the next one.
  • Great for Paper Routes

    By QueenJines
    This app works great for paper routes. I love the ability to import. Wish it had more than 100 stops available tho.
  • Delivery driver

    By Germinas03
    Excellent app , but it’s just missing add more than 100 stops , please
  • Would be great if I could flat-out purchase.

    By matt the hobbit
    I played with this app for the 7 day trial. It has features I would love to use. But the subscription pricing is more than the amount I would use the app. Would shell out a flat $60 for lifetime access. Subscription for daily use does not suit me, and that’s unfortunate because it seems like I would occasionally use a navigation app with these features. 4 stars for features but 2 stars for price structure
  • Way better than Route4Me

    By ++++++++++++++
    I have used both. Are used Route4Me for sometime but it’s more difficult to use and cost way more money if you get the paid version but if you use the free version you only get 10 optimizations per month. The interface in inRoute is much more simple to use and I like it a whole lot better. Everything makes so much more sense plus you can upload your addresses from a spreadsheet which you cannot do without paying in route for me. It’s just my opinion but that’s why we write reviews.
  • Great Work Route planning App

    By BeninMnpls
    I needed an app that I could import an xcell spreadsheet into then have it route it automatically. It also integrates with Waze, supposedly, however I can’t seem to figure how that works. All in all this app is by far the best app for trip planning with multiple stops. The ONLY reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because of the 100 limit on the importing. I wish it would do up to 200 or more. Also the Waze connection is hard to figure out. But I run Waze on my other cell phone at the same time. So it’s not that big a deal.
  • Great Little Trip Planner.

    By Rhys'Mini
    I enjoy planning and riding motorcycle trips. Sometimes I plan the entire trip before I leave my home, but I also find myself planning (actually adjusting my plan) on the fly in the motel room where I happen to be, or even at a fuel/lunch/snack stop. This app works great for all situations as long as I have a cell or WiFi signal. It is very easy to use. An important feature for me is how easy it is to tailor my route by just dropping pins along the route I want to take versus the one the app comes up with. I highly recommend this useful app. Rhys
