What's New in Version 3.1.2
- In an effort to generate a new source of revenue, WSDOT is conducting a digital advertising pilot project to allow commercial advertising through its websites, social media tools and mobile apps.
Traffic map virtually unusable
I used the old old "app" which simply took you to the website. While this wasn't ideal and the website wasn't very mobile-friendly, I could still take a glance at the overall traffic map, see where the bad spots were and make quick adjustments. Now the little flags showing all of the traffic cameras take up the whole map and you can't see a thing. Ridiculous. There should be a way to turn these off (if there is, I can't find it). Looks like I'll be going back to the website.
Still useful but not sure about why ads were added but if it saves taxpayers money for the dev and maintenance I can live with them
No longer supported?
No updates in a long time. Same old blank white screen plaguing app rendering it useless even on LTE and wifi. Same old issues since its inception yet never fixed. Border and traffic times are often wrong. Only one person working on the app. Maybe they should hire some coop students to work on the app instead of adding apps? Bad move wsdot.
