Ratings and Reviews
Great for road conditions
I like each feature of this app. Perhaps my favorite view is the Map view. I switch off the traffic cameras to see the map more clearly. Through the last winter, which was quite snowy, this app provided current and useful information. Easy to use on my iPhone. I always open it before a trip of more than about 20 miles. I also use the WeatherBug app for real time radar images. Using these two apps, I choose the fastest and safest route for my journey
This is a pretty nice app. I like being able to click on the traffic cameras and actually SEE what the situation looks like. Would be nice if there were a “HELP” function. There are blue camera icons, as well as gray. The blue ones seem to be working, for the most part, and will provide a live (still) shot. The gray ones (currently) do nothing at all but return an error message saying that they’re currently not working. Tried a couple dozen of them.
The cameras are usually always down or blocked and I feel like they’re delayed by a few minutes because on camera it’ll look all clear but in reality it’s horrible. For the most part the app is good. They used to have the feature where you can see the snow plows out. I think they’ve changed it because I can’t see them ever. The app itself I a bit outdated but factual so overall 3/5.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
