Nickname req is dumb's Review of The Next ExitReviewed on 10/6/19 2:04 PM
The book was so much easier to use because of you could quickly find the state and road your on along with your location with just a flip of a page and a quick scan. Notes about the exits could be written on the page, and you didn't need to pay for a book each year either. The app separately needs a gps option. Too hard to find what you need. No way to search for what you needed either. But they sure got the subscription service down pat though. Good product. But the book forget the app. It needs work.
Really like the new version's Review of The Next ExitReviewed on 10/6/19 2:04 PM
We picked up our first next exit book in a Walmart checkout line 10+ years ago. We love using it because you can plan your stops based on how much gas you have left since exit numbers are based on mile markers in most states. When I have a little more than a quarter tank left, I ask my wife to find an exit 80-100 miles from where we are. It takes the guessing game out of gas stops and enables you to confidently run the tank into that red zone if the exits work out right. App Store clearly states this app is for existing account holders. However, it should be free for those who had already paid for the book. One flat $15 fee should include the app, and book if you want it (and vice versa). I feel that this app is easy to use but probably best to have a passenger work it for you if possible. I rated it 4 stars since the app should really have the capability to immediately show where you're at instead of having to go through the menus every time.

I am unable to log in or create a new account also. Get a bunch of error codes.

I got the app for a cross country move since it was about the same cost as the book and I wouldn't have to fuss with the book in the truck. Big mistake! The app crashes constantly and it isn't nearly as simple to understand as the books are. The layout for the entries is so cramped that you can't make a quick glance to find things. Great idea, poor execution. If this also had a map and GPS function it would almost be worth the hassle. Just get the book instead...at least it won't crash when you need it!

I had problems from the start but an email to Meg at next exit solved my problems. The app works well and I appreciate the support.

I have loved the next exit books for years. I didn't mind paying for the yearly membership, but for over a month the app has failed to work at all. Total waste. I am going back to the book.

The Next Exit is great when traveling. This version is very easy to use when you are on the road. We have used the print version for many years. They are not liars or spammers.....the description clearly says it is for existing subscribers.

March update: Just did the most recent update. It's still worthless. Used to be such a great app. No longer. I paid for my years subscription back in February and it has been unusable since. Below is my review from years ago. Now, not so much. Since the update, the app is unusable. Support used to be very responsive. Now, no emails are getting responses. I paid my annual fee in February for NOTHING. Used the book for a while but now have been using the app for years, first on my iPod Touch now on my iPhone. When you're pulling a large horse trailer all over half of the country and also need diesel fuel, this app is a godsend. I have no complaints and the one time I needed support, I got great help via email.

We already purchased the hard copy book. It's very useful & I recommend it. However, there should be a way to use the app without paying for it again!
