  • Fantastic

    By Pixelwizard
    All I could say to make it better is integrate Siri so I that I can ask Siri “find me a subway restaurant along the route and add it to the route as a way point” and traffic conditions to route the most accurate path taking traffic into consideration....

    This may be the best app for self-setting alternate routes from point a to point b.
  • The best route planning tool for iOS!

    By Rambler358
    A slight learning curve but all nav apps I tried have some learning curve. I tried MyRoute-App, but this is much more flexible IMO. If you need a route planning app - this is the one to get! A couple enhancement wishes for the developer: - add a desktop or Mac app version. - add Apple CarPlay support. There's 2 additions would make inRoute unbeatable - thanks for a great app!
  • Great Route Planning Tool

    By R-Duke
    I started using inRoute a year ago when I routed and rode a motorcycle on a 17 day, 6,000 mile ride. At the time I purchased the lower pin drop app (25), which was enough. Now, I upgraded my purchase to give me 150 pin drops, because I’m planning two rides. I’ve got both loaded and ready to go, complete with gas, lunch and hotel stops. The first trip is a 5,200 mile ride and later this year a 6,200 mile ride. There was a glitch in finding gas stations and hotels along the route two weeks ago. Rob with customer service (via email) was very prompt to reply and discovered it was an Apple issue with Apple Maps, which I guess is the base of what inRoute is built on. Rob stayed with it, stayed in communication and offered suggestions while we were waiting for Apple to fix their problem, which they finally did. Thanks Rob for staying with it and for your very prompt attention and replies, even late at night. Bottomline, I highly recommend the inRoute app.
  • Wanted to Like the App

    By JoJoP40
    I was very excited, purchased the upgrades and started planning routes for great surface roads that add various amounts of time to dinner trip drives. The fun curvy roads are well worth the 10 min to 1/2 hour longer trip time rather than sitting on the expressways. However, the app locks up and tells me to go X number of feet to the starting point. The screen locks and the only way to correct it is to double tap the home button and swiping the app closed. I tried reopening and restarting but it keeps locking. After 3 tries I quit and just hit the pointer icon to center the map on me. I followed my plot manually but the app really isn’t working. It too difficult for use to make good use of curvy roads in a fun vehicle. Sharing with Waze worked great for the 1st segment, but then it stoped and wanted to reroute me BACK to waypoint 1. I think it needed an ok somehow to load the second waypoint. Something flashed on the screen but it was gone too quickly to know what it said. On curvy fun roads I don’t have time to babysit the app. It needs to keep up. Maybe there’s a way to have it advance without a user prompt ? That should be the default if there is... It looks good, planning is good, I can move routes between devices easily. But once in the car, on twisty roads, it crashes... Too bad... I wanted to really like this app. Edit: Thanks for the reply. I started the app both before I was on the route and while driving along the start of the route. So both before the start point and then before waypoint 1... sometimes it starts. It has locked up several times. Most importantly it locks when I was in the fun car were I don’t have time or room to keep looking away from the road long enough to figure out what’s happening. It says go X feet to start... and I am already past that point and on the exact route planned. The screen locks. Only swiping it closed allows any access. I have no idea what flashed when I shared the route with Waze. But after waypoint 1 Waze kept trying to take me back to that waypoint. I want to like this. But it needs to be invisible other than giving me route instructions. Seems it works for others. I’d like to use it.
  • Saved my job

    By Duoh Tlas
    I started working a paper route, but i have a naturally TERRIBLE sense of direction - especially in the pitch black of early mornings. This app is incredible. It has better accuracy than google maps, and barely takes up any data. It gives clear and concise directions, and the voice repeats exactly what you name the waypoints which is vital for me especially. This app has saved me incredible amounts of stress and pretty much saved my job. I don’t know what i’d do without it.
  • Cannot customize route

    By nonickmanesavailable
    App won’t let you customize the route
  • A great app for my work

    By spraytech72
    Having the ability to plot so many stops and have them routed efficiently is a tremendous help and time saver. Make sure you turn off the optimization because it will change things up as you go.
  • Worthless App

    Unable to drop pins
  • Family Sharing, not quite

    By Josh_KY
    App says it supports family sharing but it does not. You are forced to purchase for every family member. False advertising. To add additional comments in response to the developer comments (which are appreciated): 1. Without going into detail, if you wanted to allow for sharing of the paid version, there are many technical solutions to be able to do this. 2. If you never had intention to allow sharing of paid benefits, might I suggest you remove the “Family Sharing” compatibility from your “free” app, unless the goal is to cause confusion amongst consumers.
