AppAvenger today announced their popular iPhone app, Truck Stops Pro 1.4, now supports the iPhone 5 larger screen.
"We are pleased to release this update to our popular Truck Stops Pro application. The extra space provided by this larger screen will allow us to provide more information to our users fingertips. We continue to plan to explore interface changes that this extra screen real estate provides, but will always keep our focus on making this application the simplest and easiest to use for the Road Warriors out there," said AppAvenger founder Sean Peck.
Truck Stops Pro is a professionally targeted application, aimed squarely at the Professional OTR driver. Though the app has found popular audience with RV owners and some in the general public as well.
Providing location and information on over 5400 truck stops, 2000 rest areas, 900 weigh stations, CAT Scale Location and over 8100 potential overnight parking locations, all information is delivered in a simple to use, visually map centric, and single finger interface.
When asked what else the update had to offer Mr. Peck responded, "Besides our regular data updates that come with every release, We are pleased to finally have all interactions requiring no more than a single finger. While previous versions required 2 finger tap, or zoom out gesture, both of which required 2 fingers and worked fine, the need for 2 fingers on the screen meant for awkward interactions or the use of 2 hands. We were committed to make this interface to a point where all user interactions are able to be accomplished by 1 finger. To accomplish this, zoom out can now be accomplished by a single finger tap and hold simply tapping the screen, hold for one second and release, and Zoom Out functionality will occur."
He went on to note that default 2 finger tap, and zoom out gesture are still supported as well. "While this might not seem like much, it makes a huge difference when interacting with the application. Now there is never a need to have more than 1 finger on the screen at a time. This is just another step on the path to keep this app the most user friendly available," stated Mr. Peck.
Truck Stops Pro 1.4 is $4.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide through the App Store in the Travel category.
