EasyRoute 4.2 – Watch Stuff and Offline Mode

I had some fun making stuff for EasyRoute over the winter. This release gets all that out. Route Scheduling This is an Apple Watch focused feature I used to assist me in marathon training. I had to add some detours and excursions to my normal running routes to make the day’s prescribed distance on the […]

EasyRoute 4.10 – Sweet Watch Navigation and Ride with GPS

Improved Apple Watch Navigation Ok, so I got a little bit lost with EasyRoute while going for a run in Atlanta. A little embarrassing, I admit, but something nice came out of it. I was out early and the sun was not yet up. I was in a quiet neighborhood but it was still a […]

EasyRoute 4

A major change in the app means a major change in the version number, so here we are, version 4.0! The Short Story First, rather than query Mapbox for data over and over again as you tap and build your route, EasyRoute now goes and fetches chunks of route and elevation data as needed and […]

EasyRoute 2.10 – Switched to Mapbox

As I mentioned last time, EasyRoute would shortly be changing its maps and data source to Mapbox and now, that moment has arrived. Everything is intended to work as it did before (with one big exception) but there are some places where the generated route is different than before. I am still finding ways to […]

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 1.4 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 […]
