EasyRoute Submitted!

I wrote an app for the iOS App Store and just submitted it today! It’s called EasyRoute!

It’s a route planner for runners. Yes, there are route planners available on the web, but I’ve wanted this feature on my iPhone and iPad for years (literally) and decided to do something about it.

I like to have a plan before I leave the house on a run. Depending on a number of factors, it might not be so straightforward to just go out and run say, 5 miles. If I follow a particular road around, how far will that be? If I use one entrance to a park instead of another, how much longer (or shorter) will that make the route?

I do have a GPS watch, a Garmin Forerunner 610¬†which I’ve mentioned¬†before, and it’s wonderful for showing me what I did, but I like to plan new routes while sticking to the prescribed distance for the day. I don’t like crossing big roads during my run and I like a loop where the return trip is different from the way out.

So if I want to try something new before heading out, instead of powering up the computer or dragging out the laptop, I can now just whip out my iPhone or iPad.

I’m happy with the way it’s come out so far. I say “so far” because version 1.0 is not the end, it is just the beginning.
