Your ETA: iPhone App Written Review
If you’re a parent, then you’re likely well acquainted with the terror that is, “Are we there yet?” It’s a question that’s haunted many a road trip, and though it may be an irritating statement, the sentiments that lay behind it aren’t all that misguided. What do we mean? We mean you’d, of course, always like to know when you’ll arrive at your destination. And now, with Your ETA by developer Juan C Roa you can do exactly that. The app accurately estimates the time you will arrive at your end-point, and using nothing but your iPhone’s built-in sat-nav. For our full review of this trip-ready title, head on down below the break!
Concept and Functionality
As stated, Your ETA has one goal and one goal only: To let you know, more or less, when you’ll arrive at your destination, and how long a trip you have left. This is a brilliant little utility to shoot for, and almost without fail the app does its duties accurately. The app works by using the built-in GPS system to track how fast you’re going, as well as how many miles are left between you and your Point B. To tell the app where you’re going, you simply type in the address at the home screen. It’s really that simple, as Your ETA does all the heavy lifting from there. The app presents the user with an estimated time of arrival, as well as a guess at the number of minutes left in the trip.
If you frequently travel to the same locations, you can also add your favorite spots within the settings menu. This allows you to track how quickly (or how slowly) you’ll arrive at some of the more common stops along your daily route. It’s a brilliant to track your trip to work, or your drive home from the grocery.
Design and Layout
In addition, we really have to hand it to the developers for making an app that’s simple, gorgeous and quick to the cut. We liked the fact that the address form is right there on the home screen, right alongside our favorite spots. This makes it unbelievably easy to select our end destination, and as the app needs no other information to work, one could feasibly set-up and use Your ETA in a matter of seconds. It’s that kind of simplicity we like to applaud here at the iPhone App Review.
We’ll spin it to you this way: The app is only a buck in the App Store, making it an incredible bargain for just about anyone. If you’ve been waiting for just such an utility, then wait no more. The price is right, the features accurate, and the use very easy. In other words, give Your ETA a test drive!
Your ETA requires iOS 3.2 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
