Piece of Crap

Unbelievably bad. Took a long time to load. Very slow and unresponsive at times. Everytime you want to do something useful like, say, save a route, it asks if you want to buy the feature. Okay - I don't mind paying for added value - but the free version of the app should come with at least minimal useability. Non-intuitive user interface - did these guys actually READ the Metro design guide? 30 minutes of my life I will never get back. Don't waste your time. If there was a zero or negative rating, I would give it.

Cost, glitch, Loss of work, one size window only

This was down loaded as a free app until you try to save or do any modifying. Then it ask if you want to buy this feature. OK I paid to be able to save. Put in 18 stops save as "" then put in 4 more stops all this done by hand because you can not resize the screen to cut and past from things like a spread sheet. Then is just stopped. Restarted it and all the work put into it GONE. not even the first 18 stops. I would rate it a 0 as not usable but the app store does not have a 0.

This Software Sucks

Not intuitive. Could not see the route. Would not give directions. Would only show the map area of your waypoints. Went to share the route to see if I could then see it and the program crashed. Wasted money.

Raises more questions than answers

I can't figure out how to zoom in or out on the map of the imported waypoint. Even on the ones included with the product. Since images have the lat/lon and are Bing, why no basic Bing capability? I can't navigate with that tiny postage stamp. No pinch or expand. I did purchase the advanced save feature, there was no warning that routes cannot be saved without it. There is another purchase request for something else. It didn't work. It would be nice if we could know the prices up front. Running on Surface Pro. Does look pretty, just you are stuck with the resolution of view that was imported. A doc manual would be nice if these features are built in. I rarely write reviews, it's that this one promised a lot more than I can find. It is not easy to find out how to contact the author. In android land, it is usually 1 or 2 clicks away. I will gladly revise this if author wants to show me my errors. ..Ken

First Impressions

I have been working with Route Planner 8 for a couple of hours. So far, I have been able to save a map and add waypoints. However, I haven't been able to actually lay out a route or figure out how to make the map full screen or delete the sample routes or even delete waypoints. Nor have I been able to find any decent help. O

What is going on?

I couldn't even figure out to run the app. Seems if you want to do anything at all you have to upgrade. Uninstalled

Time you won't get back

This has got to be the worst attempt at a route planner. Installing it and especially trying to try it is such a colossal waste of your time. It is time you can't ever get back. It is entirely possible the paid version might actually work, but trying to do a simple route was so difficult and my 2nd waypoint it assumed was going to be in the same general area when it was 4 states away. Then when I forced it to change the town and state, it couldn't even find the location until I entered the zip code. Oh, did I mention this is really lame? I uninstalled within 2 minutes. DON'T waste your time. It will make you angry. If I could give it 0 stars I would.

Won't save and open routes

As soon as I purchased and launched this app. I set up a simple route along with the folder to store routes and the app closes when I attempt to open the route.
