Kansas City Scout Traffic
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The Kansas City Scout Traffic app provides commuters and travelers with mobile access to information for Kansas City metro area roadways from the Kansas City Scout's Intelligent Transportation System (ITS). The available information includes:
1) A zoomable, scrollable map-based display
2) Current traffic conditions on Kansas City metro area's freeways and major surface streets
3) Lists of accidents, road construction activities, and other hazards
4) Special events that affect traffic (sport events, etc.)
5) Closed-circuit television (CCTV) traffic camera images
6) Electronic roadway sign messages
Great access to roads
This app is invaluable in bad weather times, not to mention fun to look at.
Not sure if the N, S, E, W on the cameras refers to the direction the camera is facing but it seems so. Therefore, the I35 N at 127th camera is actually a south facing camera so the label needs corrected.
Nice secondary traffic app. Nice to have "live" camera shots. Ability to see overhead traffic LED signs is a nice touch. App locks up quite a bit while trying to continuously load data. If the UI was smoother this could be a 4-5 star app. I'll stick to google maps for general color-coded traffic and use this for camera/sign info.
Not a bad start, but needs work
Program is on the right track, but falls short in a couple of critical areas...
In attempting to show users real-time traffic, the app ends up being very slow and "clunky" when loading. Its trying to continuously update, so it stays slow...
Also, camera images are good to have, but when selected, the image is very small. Not that much of a problem on an ipad, but you cannot see it well on an iphone.
Again, a decent app and headed the right direction, but still needs some work.
