The Needle Travel App UPDATED

Brenda tells us about the Needle Travel app which is free.  It only works on the iPhone but if you travel a lot and have an Apple device, you'll want to check into this.  UPDATE: Melita says it works on Android phones, too.  She has it and it works well in the Philadelphia area where she lives.  

Thanks, Brenda! (And thanks to Melita, too!)

  1. It is available on android phones. I have not tested it in a travel situation but it does identify stores by any zip code (by 10, 25, or 100 mile radius). Seems to be accurate for my area (Philadelphia). Melita

  2. Thanks for the correction, Melita. It's good to know it works pretty well in your area. I wonder about rural areas where there is nothing for a hundred miles at least?

  3. You can type in any zip code from your home. Helps with planning for a trip. But, reaching out through FB/Yahoo groups to actual locals still a great resource. And, I would check websites or call first as we don't know how often this is updated. Melita
