the get route bit does not work, just displays an (ugly) map.

Nice try anyway

Get Directions need better directions
By , for WP 3.5.1

"Get Directions" is not good at giving directions. I've not actually tried the app yet because I don't know where to get this key that they refer to.

Direction 2. Get a free MapQuest API key from http://developer.mapquest.com/web/products/open

The page at this link is general. You may have to get an account first, but even that is not clear. I made an account by clicking "Manage AppKeys", but all I got was a confirmation email with no substance.

Is an API key the same as an AppKey. I dunno.

There are 21 links on the body of the page, and it's a guess where to go from here. I picked "MapQuest Open Directions API Web Service". It sounded better than the others. But there is nothing on the destination page about getting a key. A few other clicks were equally useless.

Too many developers are in their own world and seem to have trouble relating to first-time visitors into their world.

I gave up for now. If these developer rewrite their instructions to be useful I may try again, but for now I can only rate them minimum.
