Ratings and ReviewsSee All
We bought this app a couple of days before our dream vacation to Alaska. We rented a RV for 21 days and planned on driving all over the interior and Kenai Peninsula. We expected the Milepost to tell us everything about these areas, but unfortunately most of the time we could not get it to load.
We had to keep stopping and reloading the app and most times it took six to seven tries before it finally came up. By then we made decisions without the help of the Milepost. We just kept getting a message that stated "Loading Issues" and it would freeze up.
Also, we found that when we were able to get it to load, some of the information was out of date. The listed campground fees are $5-7 more than what is listed in the Milepost and we discovered when we drove to some of the advertised RV parks, they had been closed for several years. We had the 2010 hardcopy of the Milepost and were excited to purchase the 2012 app for my iPad to use on our trip. However, overall we were pretty disappointed with it and found it to be of some, but limited use.
Can’t log in
Bought the book and wanted the app for easy access on the drive. Logged in to the website and created an account which led me to the app. Downloaded the app and now can’t log in with my information making the app useless since I’m not paying a second time.
Misleading… But a good handy app
Just for clarity…. The App is free… But you still have to "purchase" the book to open the app. That's $20-Thank you ….. Just so you know. Plus… the app may not work properly all along the Al-Can (if you're driving) because of limited to NO SERVICE. Poor Internet service = Poor app. With that said, it's helpful to have the e-version. The app does what it's suppose to do… give you information on the rich and glorious history in both Canada and Alaska. It's nice and tidy and convenient. You can plan your daily journeys the night before (while you are in a town or hotel with WiFi) and be prepared for what's ahead. I would "bring up" the next days map and pages and have those available for quick reference. I found once I was on the road the app would open to the last location, but not be able to load more information. So, you just have to "work around" that little glitch. The Milepost its self is invaluable. Whether it's in the super thick, kill a forest, city phone book size or the app version. Any and every one traveling to Alaska needs the Milepost….. It's like American Express…
