If you're ever looking to determine the shortest route between multiple destinations, the recently updated Route app definitely looks like a good choice. Version 1.2 of the app is highlighted by a refreshed UI and upgraded search features. Users of the app can now search for contacts with addresses and for a business by name. Route now also allows the ability to add your current location and to modify a destination name. The app is designed to solve an interesting dilemma – the best way to travel between more than a single destination. Supporting 100 unique stops per route, destinations can be added as the current location, an address, searching for a business, or from information in your contact list. Some of the ways to Route can be used is to save gas, calculate a delivery route, or plan a multi-destination vacation. Unlike other apps, Route is fully functional after purchase and doesn't require any in-app purchases to design a route between a large number of addresses. Here's a quick video of how the app works.

Route is a universal app designed for both the iPhone and iPad and can be downloaded in the App Store for $1.99.
