iExit Interstate Exit Guide

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
NOTE: We are aware some users are continuing to see the Location arrow appear in the Status Bar after closing iExit. This should not be happening, and so we are investigating and will release an update soon. We updated iExit 6.0 to be *extremely* battery-friendly in the background, which it is, but in our next update, we will offer the ability to completely turn off Location in the background. Thanks for your feedback and thanks for using iExit! :)
*** iExit is now FREE for the rest of 2014! ***
iExit tells you what's at upcoming exits when you're on the highway. It uses your device's location to determine where you are on the highway, and then displays upcoming exits in real time.
iExit's Search is powerful and dead simple. Search the next 100 exits for businesses (like Starbucks, Cracker Barrel, or KOA Campgrounds), amenities (like WiFi, Playground, or Truck Parking), rest stops, hotel deals, and much much more.
Your GPS will tell you how to get there. iExit will tell you where to stop along the way.
Don't believe iExit will change the way you travel? Ask The New York Times, USA Today, Consumer Reports, CNET, MacWorld, The Today Show, ABC News, and many more. Here's what CNN had to say about iExit:
"Do you have enough gas to wait until the next town? Is there a bathroom coming up any time soon? Need to buy a tent at Wal-Mart? The iExit app will tell you exactly what lies ahead."
Don't take another road trip without iExit!
** Important Notes **
● Your device must have a GPS device or a connection to the internet for iExit to track your location.
● iExit is compatible with iOS 6.0 and later.
● iExit only works in the United States on major exit-based highways.
If you have a question or complaint about iExit, please reach out to us first at firstname.lastname@example.org before leaving a bad review here. We work incredibly hard to build you the best highway guide app in the App Store, and we value your feedback and will reply immediately. Thanks for using iExit!
What's New in Version 6.01
- We've fixed the bug resulting in a black screen that appears sometimes when users launch the app. This is fixed for both iPhone and iPad users.
- Regarding "Location is always running in the background" complaints, when you completely close iExit, it does not access your location. No app on your iPhone/iPad can access your location when it's closed.
When iExit is in the background, it will stop using your GPS device and instead will get location updates every few miles when you switch between cell towers (assuming your device has a cell plan). iExit grabs the location associated with the new cell tower so that we can keep iExit up to date upon your return. This requires extremely little power, and so iExit 6.0 and later is much easier on your battery than any previous version. To stop iExit from accessing your location whatsoever, just close it from the background.
iExit 6.0 is here and it is awesome. It comes with a clean, new look for iOS7, a widely expanded POI database, and a beautifully-redesigned Search experience.

● Search Overhaul:
Quickly searching for a business ("Starbucks", "Cracker Barrel", "Flying J", etc), an amenity ("Pet friendly", "WiFi", "24 Hours", etc) or a location ("Atlanta", "90210", etc) is beautifully simple now. Simply click Search and either A) type in whatever you are looking for or B) use one of our 25 Preset Searches, and see results at the next 100 upcoming exits. iExit still has Favorites, but you no longer need to set a business as your Favorite in order to search upcoming exits for it.
● New Look:
iExit has a beautiful new iOS7 look to it. Some components look the same, just with refreshed looks, while others have been completely redesigned. We promise you're going to love it.
● New Data:
iExit point-of-interest data has been greatly expanded in this update to where we now have museums, hospitals, vets, RedBox locations, as well as improvements to our already-existing data set. This update represents a massive POI data improvement; our next big update will include a massive Exit/Rest Area location database improvement.
● New Features:
We have added several new features, such as:
- Google Streetview for POIs.
- The ability to tell us if we should add/update/remove businesses at exits.
- Improved ability to plan your next driving stretch while pulled off at an exit. See "View Exits Ahead and Behind Closest Exit".
● Several Features Removed:
With this new update, we realized that the features in iExit to limit which POI Categories were visible/invisible was no longer necessary, thanks to the improved Search, so it has been removed. We also have removed Background Alerts until we can implement it where it is more helpful than annoying. Because of this, iExit now will not drain your battery while in the background.
