I have been waiting for this app to come out for months. I am a big fan of Roadside America. When I saw it was available at last here in Canada I jumpped on it. The App itself is just fine, wonderful in fact. It gives all the quarky Roadside info I have come to love from the site at my fingertips. It will be great for trips! Recommended. However, the costing is a ripoff! And I urge Roadside America to rethink this in the up dates and opt to reward its fans instead of gouging them. The $3 you pay up front only buys you one of 5 regions of the USA. you only get the info for the region you pay for. You can ad regions later if you want, at another cost. I would have gladly paid one, one time fee for this, even as high as $10 or more. I have paid that much for apps before if I really like it and know I will use it all the time. But the kicker here is, even if you by all access to to all of the USA you have to renew it every year. So every year I pay another $5?!?! So I have to pay for this app every year? I have never heard of such a thing. Who do you think you are, the NY Times? In fact I have NY Times app, and IT WAS FREE! When I buy a travel book, do I have to go back and buy it again every year? This would have been a 5 out of 5 if it wasnt for the costing. This is no way to grow your biz. I would be surprised if anyone out side of die hard core RSA fans bought into this. If you had made it one time fee of 5-10 bucks, all access, you might have brought in more new fans that way. But your current costing scam is a turn off. Rethink this in the next up date of the app, and all will be forgiven and I will gladly write another review, that one would be 5 out of 5! Fans will get this app. They will love it. They should also let RSA know how they feel about the costing scheme. (maybe its jst me?). Newbies may feel ripped off however. PS I have been thinking about it and here is a suggestion. I would pay $15 or so (the cost of a travel book) to have total access forever to this app. Also, if memebers could load up there own pictures to the site and ad reviews that would be cool too.

The Costing seems like a ripoff. Disappointing
Another way to ask for more money
I probably would have known if I had read more but when I bought it I though I would have the entire US but no, for $2,99 (CDN), I had to chose for only one section of the map. Its very disappointing but I learned my lesson. If you have money to spare… it might be a good thing. If you dont, forget about it!
Had this app for all of an hour and it crashed. Want my money back. :(
More fun than games, these places are real!
Im really glad I got this, and the "everything on it" all-region expansion. Im already finding places nearby I hope to visit, like the Sparks electrical museum in Bellingham, Washington, and others I know of that Ill propose they add, like the water cistern Its a walk through to the weirdest parts of real life.
Excellent suggestions for unique sites to see that you probably wont find in most travel guides. Wish it was more up to date but with more people adding tips and photos, Roadside America will only grow and expand.
Yay... No more subscriptions!
Great for long roadtrips with kids
I love this app! We live and travel a lot in Texas so the Southwest region is basically enough for us. But 2 years ago we made a road trip up to Yellowstone and back down to Texas via Mt Rushmore. And for this trip alone every penny to unlock all regions was well spent. We found so many cool, weird and fun things along the way, that the kids (5&10) and we adults enjoyed. And its most of the time things that arent mentioned in any travel guides. My personal favorite are the Beatles statues and the presidents heads in Houston.
