iPhone App 1.5 Bonus: Canada! And…No Subscriptions

Map viewJust released: the latest update to the Roadside America App for iPhone, v1.5. We thought this would be a nice holiday bonus for iPhone users. Major improvements include the addition of Canada attractions, the reworking of where maps appear, and the end of “subscriptions.”

  • Canada: All provinces added as a single region, and also part of the new “All Access” option. Current, unexpired subscribers to US Access are upgraded to All Access in v1.5 and get Canada for free.
  • A la Carte Regions: Now 1-region users can purchase individual additional regions.
  • Subscriptions Eliminated: Purchases in 1.5 won’t expire.
  • Maps: Now accessible from any list view, showing the attractions in that list.
  • Sunset Alert: Can be set to repeat daily. This alert type and Tourist Interruptus no longer require an active network connection.

We also performed a number of fixes and tweaks, such as pull-to-refresh a list, and metric support for devices set to metric.
