After a few months in development, this week we finally made the first version of the Backroads app available to the public. You can now install it from the Windows store, for both desktop and mobile Windows 10.
Our criteria for this release was fairly simple: if it’s good enough for us to use in our own trip planning, then others will probably find it useful as well.
While this is an important milestone for us, it’s really just the beginning. There’s a number of really cool features we’re thinking about adding, including support for the more commonly-used mobile platforms. As they say, software is never done.
We’ll be in hiking in Utah next week, putting the app further to the test.
