Simple, yet fun, road trip games
The traveling bingo and license plate games now have an app! This app contains simple graphics, for simple games, but are great for hours of entertainment. I like the fact that users with multiple iPads or iPhones can compete against each other for a "Bingo." Keeping track of license plates electronically is great because it sure beats the old way of writing one down and figuring out which states are missing! Kids might not find the Marathon Gas Station finder tool of any use to them, but parents might enjoy having a convenient location tool readily available.
I don't care about the games, I just wanted the Station Locator. As a loyal member of Marathon's loyalty program, we want to buy as much fuel as possible at Marathon in order to earn our $25 gas cards (we get at least 1 a month).
Right now, it's easy to find area stations using the app...but I know the stations here. I need the ability to EASILY find stations near interstates/highways along a route. AND the ability to somehow save this info. I'm on an iPod Touch, not an iPhone, so searching on the fly is not possible for me. I need WiFi to search.
I do like that I can search by station features like having Diesel. Harder to incorporate, but knowing if stations are RV/travel trailer-friendly would be helpful to us.
Marathon does have a station locator on their website, including along a route, but does not have their own app.
So this app isn't bad....it has potential but just doesn't quite meet my needs and expectations right now.
I was hoping to use this app with our long road trip a couple days away. I downloaded the app to test it before our long road trip a few days away. Wanted to know how to use it so I can show my kids. However, haven't been able to mock play since it freezes and locks up. Tried a few times but have been unsuccessful so going to delete it now.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
