Road trippers can enjoy an easier ride thanks to the new Rest Area app released for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. The app is designed to point out upcoming rest area and public stop points for travelers.
Simplifying the paper map hunt, the app shows how far you are from the nearest stop, helping users better estimate gas mileage and accommodate other needs more efficiently.
The app starts off with your current location and provides both map and list style views of the nearest points. Driver-friendly auto-search and zoom options are available along with standard apple functions. Blue pins are used on the map to display locations, and when tapped, will provide detailed information about that particular point. Details include food, handicap services, and restrooms.
Flexible choices are also available for the user, such as search options and sorting options.
