Apps for a Stress-Free Road Trip

(The Root) — Getting behind the wheel and hitting the open road can be a great way to unwind and see the country at ground level. And with these two apps, your road trip just got a little easier.

 

Whether you're headed out on the road for business or pleasure, don't go without the iExit app on your smartphone. Developed by Allstays.com, iExit uses the GPS on your phone to let you know what's coming up at the next exits on your route. The app works on interstate highways and shows you the upcoming exits, as well as how far away points of interest are from the exit. Find food, gas, lodging, hospitals, repair shops and more at the nearest exit or any exits that may be just ahead. Get one-touch calling for most locations and create a list of favorites so you never miss a Waffle House again. The iExit app is free for a limited time on Android, and $0.99 for iPhone.
