PlayPlaces Kids Road Trip App

PlayPlaces Kids Road Trip App


Traveling with kids today is certainly easier than it used to be, thanks to portal DVD players, mobile game systems, IPods and the like, but young children still have a lot of energy they need to get rid of when they are stuck in the car for long periods of time.

Wouldn't it be nice to know, when those rumblings for the next meal come from the back seat, you would know where the closest restaurants with play areas for kids are? So they can get that excess energy out, since you have to stop anyway??

What about when that "I gotta go potty!" comes from back there? How far did that sign say the next rest area was? Even if you do remember, how many miles ago did you pass that sign? Do I need to get off the interstate? Or is the next rest area just around the bend? And more importantly, does it have a bathroom?

As a parent of a small child myself, my answer was absolutely yes!!! Which is why I wrote this app.

Complete data update of McD's BK and ChickFilA Locations! As well as Canadian locations added

That's exactly what this App is designed for!

Fire it up, and see exactly what restaurants are close by that have a play structure. (McDonalds, Burger King, Chick-Fil-A and Chuck-e-Cheese), or where that next rest area is! Be the hero to those kids, and let them break up all that license plate bingo with some jumping, sliding and climbing.

Features:

Over 9,000 restaurant locations within the US & Canada with play structures. Including McDonald's, Burger King, Chick -Fil-A and Chuck-E-Cheese.

Over 2000 US Rest Areas with details are also in this app.

Simple, easy interface, fire it up and go. You won't have to explain to your co-pilot how to use it, if you hand the phone to them to fire it up while you are driving.

See whats near you (default behavior) via GPS, or search.

Quickly snap back to your local location on the map with a single tap.

Get accurate driving directions to the location you select, with a simple button click.

If the database has a phone number for the restaurant, you can also call the selected location with a simple button click.

Easily show only the chain you interested in, or show all.

Works in portrait and landscape mode, so don't be afraid to turn your phone sideways and pop out your keyboard.

Very practical app for road trips with young children Great app! I have used it on 3 road trips so far to stop with my daughter so that she can eat AND get some exercise. Only thing that would make it better would be to be able to put your route into the app and only show play places along the route. Thanks for a wonderful and practical app!

Not worth the money 5 out of the 5 mcds we stopped at did not have playplaces. So what's the purpose of this app? Try renaming it "the fast food app" since it has nothing to do with play places. Really freaking annoying when you're traveling with antsy kids who need to run around. Thanks for taking my money and not giving me what was promised.

Good app, needs more info Good app, also wish it had other restaurants other than McDONALD'S and Chickfila. I use it mostly for the rest stop info so we can get drive thru and then stop to play.

Inaccurate play area info Great idea, not worth the money. Some locations did not have play areas, wish for locations other than McDonald's or Chick Fil-A.
