EasyRoute 2.0 is out

Let me start right off by stating that this is a rather anticlimactic 2.0 release. Honestly, I only bumped the major version because I ran out of numbers in the 1.x range! Anyway, what’s new for this version which is actually¬†1.9 + 0.1? Mainly, I added an export to MapMyFitness. EasyRoute already had the ability […]

EasyRoute Status 1.8.x

So it’s been a rough week or so for EasyRoute. First, shortly after releasing 1.8, I got a report from a helpful user that it crashed on his iPad. I quickly found the problem and released a fix. Unfortunately, it took 6 days for it to make it through Apple’s review process, which is is […]

How EasyRoute is always useful to me

I feel compelled to write about this because I take great satisfaction in the fact that I actually use EasyRoute quite regularly almost a year after releasing the first version. In fact, because of all the snow we’ve gotten here in New York, I’ve had to use it quite a bit recently. You’d think I’d […]

EasyRoute 1.7 Released

Yesterday, EasyRoute 1.7 was released on the Apple iOS App Store. First, I went back and changed the way the elevation button behaves. When the elevation view was first under development, I was trying to come up with a good graphic for the button that would indicate what it was for. I made a simple […]

EasyRoute 1.6 is Available

First, thanks to Apple for getting the release out so fast — I just submitted it last night and here it is already! I’ve heard that review times can get as high as three weeks right around a major iOS release, so I’m guessing they’re doing everything they can to keep the queue short with […]

EasyRoute 1.5 Released

So, I’m a little late with this announcement because I didn’t realize Apple had approved 1.5. I submitted it 8 days ago and haven’t heard anything since then. The Apple developer website was¬†taken down after a security scare, so maybe that had something to do with it. Anyway, I want to discuss the changes in […]

EasyRoute 1.4 Released

I’m really happy to announce that EasyRoute 1.4 has hit the App Store! I’m particularly excited about this release because I feel it is one of the most solid EasyRoute releases so far. I added one major new feature, but made lots of little fixes and enhancements that I think just make the overall experience […]

Rolling right along: EasyRoute 1.3 Released!

There is only one new feature, but it is a personal favorite of mine: Street View! Tap-and-hold on a road to bring up Street View. It’s that simple. This is something I’ve been looking forward to doing. Before EasyRoute, using web-based route planners, I have had to keep a regular Google Map page open also […]

EasyRoute 1.2 Released!

Quick mention: it’s a good thing I wasn’t going anyway, because WWDC sold out in two or three minutes depending on your source. I had someone inform me at 1:03 EDT, so it definitely was not more than three minutes. Onto the bigger story of the day (well, at least on this site). EasyRoute 1.2 […]

EasyRoute 1.1 now available

After about 8 days in review, EasyRoute 1.1 is finally available. The big new feature is the elevation graph. In addition, there were some minor bug fixes and internal cleanup. When I released EasyRoute 1.0, I felt it was in a useful state even without the elevation graph — this is particularly true since I […]
