This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
NewRoute lets you create and keep track of your routes: running, walking, cycling, or driving. Use it to plan where to go, or find out how far you went once you get back.
Create routes by simply tapping where you want to go on the map; NewRoute will draw the route for you, tracing along the closest road or trail.
View street level imagery along the path of your route to help you decide the best way to go.
Track your current location on routes that you've created.
Organize your routes into groups. Sort routes by distance. Easily change the units from miles to kilometers. Edit routes once you've created them.
Backup your routes to iCloud and sync them across all your devices.
Export routes in GPX format. Send pictures of your routes to your friends. Share routes with other NewRoute users through email or AirDrop.
Note: By default NewRoute helps you create routes that are optimized for running or walking. To create routes optimized for cycling or driving, tap the info button when planning a route and select Bike Route or Car Route. Select a Car Route if you would like NewRoute to take advantage of highways when tracing routes. Set your default route type in the NewRoute section of the Settings app.

Just what I was looking for!
I frequently take walks, but I didn't have a great way of measuring the distance of my route. GPS apps are OK, but they either use a ton of battery or only offer mediocre route tracing. Pedometers and fitness trackers are often off by as much as 20% when estimating distance traveled. New Route is a super simple way of tracing my routes and getting a distance! The map tracing feature makes routes through winding streets and trails a breeze.
Two features I would love to see would be GPS import and turn by turn directions. If I could auto import GPS routes from Moves or another app, then New Route could do its magic and trace actual paths to measure and record the distances. Turn by turn audio directions would be great when I plan a route ahead of time so I don't have to constantly check my phone for when my next turn is coming up. Both these features would be good in app purchases as well since they might be niche use cases.
Great app! Thanks for your hard work!
Super Easy To Use!! 🏃🏽♀️
I 💚 this app! It easy to use - no frills, no fuss! Just simplicity. In a few minutes: I can easily create a map & magically it's synced to my iCloud & now accessible from all devices. I can also upload or export (.gpx) my map so that I can use it with my various running apps. This is exactly what I was looking for when I found this app over a year ago. Keep up the great work!
This is exactly what I was looking for. It works perfectly and does everything I need! I like to plan out my runs in advance. On the longer runs, especially when training for half marathons, it's hard to do ~10 miles if you don't know where you're going ahead of time. Thanks for a great app, I'll be using it a lot!
