What a rip off

Get 1 area for paid price and have to buy other!!!

All Access

I’ve been using the Roadside America App for years now and love it. If you road trip regularly, the all access package for the whole US is worth it! It’s so fun to pull up the map and see the pins of what’s near me. Love the feature that lets me pull up the directions in Apple or Google Maps. Happy travels!

Nationwide fun!

I used the free section for several years, then started traveling around the country. I bought the rest of the national sections. They are as odd, offbeat and fun as the northeast. I don’t get to use RoadsideAmerica as often as I’d like, but I like it as often as I use it.

I was hoping this app could notify me of upcoming attractions-as is, it requires too much “hands on” use Not helpful to a single traveler

I purchased all regions for $6.99 but was charged $24.99. 5/29/2022 update There was a problem on the billing process. I’m changing my rating since the app is great and the developer has been very responsive. Excellent app.

So much fun

Great app that I use all the time!!!!

Price is misleading

The advertised $2.99 is just for one section, and California alone is considered one section. If you want to unlock the rest of the US, it’s an additional $6.99. Not a deal killer, but I wish they warned about it on the store.

Additional Cost

Be aware, your initial purchase of the app only gives you a region of the United States. Not the full country. To get the full United States you have to pay additional.

Does not work

Downloaded and it stayed stuck on the welcome screen. No help functions. Garbage and will be reversing the charges. Fix it!

Great app, but no family sharing all access

This app is very fun. We are looking forward to using it on our next big road-trip. Be aware if you use family sharing, though. While the basic app with one region activated can be family shared, the premium all access mode can only be used with one Apple ID. (And a shout out to their great customer service! Very responsive!)
