New Road Trip Planner app for the Mac

Just came out, hope you like it! More features planned, but it works quite well the way it is now:

Re: New Road Trip Planner app for the Mac

I'm trying it out.

I can't say I'd recommend it right now, mainly because it doesn't integrate with the Ultimate Campgrounds app which I find indispensable. But it's coming, and I'll post when and if it's ready for prime time.

Also, it seems to be too difficult to find stuff. For example, I was trying to find a state park in OR that was properly named in Apple Maps. But the app found two, and rather let me select it just arbitrarily (and incorrectly) picked the wrong one.

Re: New Road Trip Planner app for the Mac

The link tells me the app is for OSX.

Rob,
Excellent feedback as always. I'll try and get these items corrected ASAP. In the meantime, here's what the next release will have, due out in a few days (I hope):

The release after that should have your fixes in it.
Thanks,
Bill

That's true. The title of this post is "New Road Trip Planner app for the Mac" and the Mac uses OSX. Why, is there another type of OS?

Showing my age -- apps are iOS, programs are OSX. Not sure whether there's another OS.

Re: New Road Trip Planner app for the Mac

App is just short for application, which are for any OS. I may make a Road Trip Planner app for iOS also. Thanks for your interest.

Like I said, showing my age. Once upon a time there were things called programs . . .

Yep, I remember calling them programs also when I started developing software in the late 1970's.
