Great Route Planner
2,500 stops and counting - I will always use this app as a route delivery driver. Plan and simple it keeps you organized. I use the colors green for 1 package stops, yellow for multiple package stops, and red for pickups. The slide left to delete and quick launch map buttons keep my day moving right along. I would like to see a "address lock" button or slide so certain stops don't have to be re-entered daily on any saved list. As well as a color lock feature for addresses. (The favorites aspect is still glitchy.) Not that it's hard after about two weeks with the app all you have to enter is the first 3 digits of an address and it pops up to tap on it for quick insert as long as it's been entered before. It takes me about 20 mins to enter 60+ address. App gets updated nearly weekly, great work developers...God Speed! All the love, light, and blessings for continuing to strive and make my work days easier. Best...
Great for a lot of multiple stops
I looked at several apps for our “Drive around America” trip and with 26 planned stops, no one else could offer a way to map it in a single trip. Let’s you pull up your contacts, although I couldn’t get it to interface so I still had to go to the contact (through the link) copy and paste the address to this app in order to map it. I may just have not been doing it correctly either. It was easy to use on my first try. I used it on my iPad and with the map it made it easy to find my next destination and figure out which way I wanted to go. I will say one of he negatives (and again I may not have been doing it right) was that it wouldn’t let me “add a stop” at the end of my list, it put it above the last entry so I had to add a step to move it each time, plus a step to name it on the times I used actual addresses and not landmarks. Overall I am really happy with what I know so far. Definitely keeping this app. Oh and one last thing, I have not upgraded to the premium version.

Thanks for the great review.
When adding stops, there are two modes: append and insert. Append will add the stop at the end, and insert will insert the stop in the best place, based on straight line distance (not driving distance). To optimize by driving distance requires the paid upgrade. You can switch modes by either tapping on the menu and selecting Append Stops or Insert Stops. You can also switch modes by tapping under the last row in the list where it says "+ Insert Stop" or "+ Add Ending Stop". The button on the right side of the tab bar is either insert or append, depending on what was last used.
100% would recommend for a routing app
I have used this app intensely over the past few months, and it has saved me so much time and hassle from jumbling around paperwork, trying to route spots by memory... this app has really changed the game, and saves so much wasted time.
Now, there a few (very) minor stipulations I have about the GUI, and there are a couple of things that would be simpler to have (like a delete all stops option that pops up after checking off most or all stops), but the layout is really easy to learn and is effective with what it does, (you just have to explore the app a bit to know how to set some options), and I will continue to use this app for as long as I have a job that requires me to Map out routes that I have to drive!
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the great review! There is a delete all stops function available from the “edit list” button - which is the pencil at the bottom left of the screen. If you have any other questions or feedback, please don’t hesitate to email me at email@example.com.
