The app just has useless suggestions from Foursquare along the route, and its terrible at suggesting anything besides restaurants. Seriously, all of the "sights" appear to be restaurants or gas stations.

Latest version Along the Way - Road Trips Made Better: 3.1.1
If youre reading this, you must be a pretty swell chap. Ive always enjoyed reading the "Whats New" for apps so its nice to have some company.
New in Along the Way 3.1.1:
- We identified an issue that was causing great venues to show up in more places than just "along the way". There are plenty of other apps that do that so as soon as we noticed it, we smashed that bug. All good now and venues should be displaying as intended... right along the way to your next destination.
- Bugs and other performance improvements
- Just kidding on that last one. We really just fixed that first thing.
If you have any questions or comments, always feel free to reach out at [email protected] Thanks!

Appears to be a largely useless Foursquare front end
I never go on a road trip without it! Keeps me on my route while I stop for anything I need.
The best app for any road trip!
The family and I found some great little spots on our trip to Chicago last week. Ive been telling everyone about this app. Thanks!
Zeigt jeden schrottigen Laden und keine Highlights
Die Routen werden angezeigt, man wählt eine aus und los gehts. So weit, so gut... Dann allerdings zeigt sie einem auf der Route jeden noch so kleinen und unwichtigen laden an. Und solche Dinge wie Subway, McDonalds und den Dollar General! Juhu, wollte ich immer schon wissen... Bloß Finger weg, nervige App ohne nutzen!!!
Not worth it
Nothing special, I was expecting local places I love discovering hidden gems, but this is NOT that!! Lots of franchise restaurants my advice use google maps and save yourself the 3bucks :/
Gas stations and walmarts
As far as I can tell, this app simply makes recommendations based on quantity of Google reviews for anywhere directly along your route and its recommendations consist almost exclusively of walmarts and other high traffic grocery stores; no parks, monuments, historical sites, rest stops, etc.
Nothing of interest Along the Way
This app provides very little in way of help finding good places during a road trip. I found it completely unhelpful. The app doesnt populate places very well and unless youre looking for a chain resturant or Walmart, youre better off with Road Tripper or Trip Advisor. We travelled from Boston to Portland, OR and back without any help from this app....and not for a lack of trying. I opened it every few hours just to check out what it had for me. Bottom line, better using your phones memory on something else.
