Roadtrippers Launches Companion iPhone App for the Perfect Thanksgiving Road Trip

CINCINNATI, OH -- (Marketwire) -- 11/19/12 -- Roadtrippers.com, the recently launched road travel site, popular for its beautiful user interface and unique all-independent locations, today announces a new iPhone companion app, available free on the iTunes App Store.

Travelers who love the simple, elegant trip planning and sharing on the website, can now sync their trips to iPhone for instant turn-by-turn navigation. Never again will road travelers miss a must-see attraction or a delicious diner while on the road.

After being live for only a few short months, Roadtrippers.com has already helped travelers plan more than 100,000 trips. Now the team is proud to announce the launch of the Roadtrippers companion iPhone app.

Create a trip. Sync to iPhone. Hit the road.

Roadtrippers.com is already the fastest and simplest way to discover places, plan and share amazing road trips and mark favorite places on the map. With the release of the new iPhone app, users can now sync everything from the website to their phone and hit the road in just a couple of clicks.

"As soon as a trip is saved on the website it syncs to the app for immediate turn-by-turn navigation and viewing your waypoints," says Tatiana Parent, Co-Founder of Roadtrippers. "This means no more printing off directions, no more hassle and no more kicking yourself for missing all the cool stuff that could be hidden off any highway exit."

The app's launch comes just in time for millions of families expecting to make cross-country trips this Thanksgiving.

"This year more than 58 percent of holiday travel will be on the road," said Parent. "So the timing couldn't be better. This year why not take a scenic route, or stop to support an independent restaurant on the way? We can help with that!"

The company worked with boutique app developer Forest Giant in Louisville, Ky., to develop the app and the two companies have big plans for its future. Parent explains "While this version of Roadtrippers is about syncing trips from the website, the next version will include local discovery and planning features that have never been seen on the iPhone, so stay tuned!"
