[prMac.com] Santa Fe, NM - Announcing that AllStays, the developers of iExit, has released the latest version of their new app for users who travel on the interstate. This application is new, offering an incredibly easy way of looking up interstate information, usually within ten seconds. Ideal for pinpointing rest and fuel stops, iExit has native GPS, mapping and offline use capabilities.
Adam Longfellow, President of AllStays, developed the iExit application because of his own frustration, "I love to drive on trips and I would constantly find a better exit after stopping at some crappy place with bad food or driving too many miles to a station that was on the interstate sign. My GPS unit is fine for where I am right now but it's very hard to look ahead by an hour or two for multiple categories."
Longfellow has solved the problems by integrating a full native GPS navigation system into the app. iExit determines which direction a user is driving in then loads the upcoming exits, along with the user's favorite places to stop, all in ten seconds on average. iExit works with local data to provide information, therefore the app can be used, even without phone or internet service. This is particularly handy for traveling in rural or remote areas where service access can be iffy or non-existent.
The app is highly intuitive, which helps to keep a driver from getting lost. It handles junctions to let users know whether the spot they're looking for is located on the right or left of an off ramp and how far away it is, saving the time and frustration that result from having turned the wrong way or gone too far. Integrating perfectly with Google Maps, iExit can display up to one hundred and fifty different points of interest, all on a single map. This makes it easy to plan a few hours ahead as a user travels.
* Shows points of interest (POI) at the 50 next exits
* Gives directions (left/right) and distances for POIs relative to the interstate
* Filters exits by only those with a user's favorite locations
