On Our Way was developed by a couple of foodie guys after one specific road trip on the 1-5N from San Diego to San Francisco proved to be underwhelming on the food front. While they knew there had to be great restaurants around in this superb food area of California, Yelp wasn't coming up with them. On Our Way is a free travel and food application that uses Yelp as its basis along with Google Maps and reviews and recommendations to deliver great restaurants along the way.
On Our Way is a fun and easy way to find places to go during your road trips and travelling. This app links up Yelp ratings with Google Maps to allow you to find top-rated restaurants directly on your route. You never again need to go through the hassle of turning around, driving out of your way or guessing which town you’ll be in next as On Our Way uses all of the 20 million plus reviews from Yelp to help you find the best places to go. On Our way is your local guide for finding everything directly in your path whether it be road houses and restaurants to boutiques, mechanics and dentists. Just define your trip route using Google's Maps and use real time access to Yelp reviews where you can search for reviews by category and location. Yelp ratings are linked up with directional searches rather than the usual 'radial' search meaning that you wont have to go 25 miles out of your way for brunch. It also allows you to anticipate mealtimes, find top rated restaurants on the drive to your romantic getaway and find anything you can find on Yelp. By putting your searches on the road in front of you it saves the hassle of turning around, driving out of your way or needing to guess which town you will be in next!
Many swear by Yelp and wouldn't dream of using a different service but On Our Way really does put an interesting slant on things by using all of Yelp'sfeatures plus Google Maps to concentrate on the towns you are going through rather than places to the East and West that will take you off your pre-designed route. There's no doubt Yelp is king of the urban driving but On Our Way is made for road trips - and that's important because it's generally unfamiliar territory with poor signage. So next time the road trip beckons it might be a better idea to log into On Our Way instead of Yelp - you get the benefit of both. Not sure you are going to find that Medical Marijuana place up that road though.
