I am an iPhone junkie. That’s right I love my iPhone with a passion that is not fleeting and I adore a good app or two. So here I give you another new series that I propose to regularly run on weekends. App Love.
Just in time for Memorial Day in the US and a slew of summer holiday weekends and roadtrips, I give you RoadNinja a free app for iPhone and Android phones and iPad as well. Sadly, this gorgeous little app is only available in the U.S. so far, but marketing people tell me it may be available in Canada should demand be there. This one has been heralded already as an app that Apple should have come up with itself. So why is that and what does it do?
|See? Price comparisons for gas.
From the press release: According to the AAA Memorial Day 2012 Travel Forecast, 88% of Memorial Day travelers will do so by car – that’s 30.7 million people hitting the road. Check out some of the ways RoadNinja can help moms traveling this holiday weekend:· NEW! Home Screen – RoadNinja’s new home screen makes it easy for travelers to explore upcoming exits, discover places nearby or view the interstate directory to plan their road trip.· NEW! Gas Prices – RoadNinja incorporated gas prices into the app to help you slash through costs and find the best deal to fuel your trip. Cost-conscious travelers can also tap the Promotions icon to learn about specials and savings within a three mile radius.· Find the Right Exit – RoadNinja shows users what’s available at any exit – even up to 3,000 miles ahead – so you can plan ahead and keep the family happy on those long road trips. Travelers can use the app to find their preferred gasoline brand, favorite restaurant chain, nearest attraction and no fee ATM all at the same exit.· Plan Your Holiday Shopping Route – RoadNinja is customizable, so you don’t have to miss out on those Memorial Day shopping sales. Set the categories displayed to Shops, Apparel and Department Stores, so you know exactly where to exit for the best savings and shopping.
Not only can you get the app free, but two of my readers can also get a fun package of assorted RoadNinja gadgets, including iPhone case, travel mug and car shades. Also Android RoadNinja dolls.

Contest ends June 8th when I will send a package to you. I was not paid to review this app. My opinion is all my own. This app gets a $$$$ 1/2 out of $$$$$. It would be a full five $$$$$ if it was available already in Canada.
