Intelligent Traffic Alerts

One of the biggest problems with traffic alert apps is actually finding the relevant traffic alerts.  Most apps give you lists of roads or maps, and you have to spend the time either going through all the roads you might be travelling on, or examining maps to see which road the alert is actually on, and whether it's even on the section of that road you will be using.

That's why I wrote Intelligent Traffic Alerts, which takes all the work out of finding relevant traffic alerts.  Simply turn it on, ensure your GPS is active, and listen.  It will constantly scan for new traffic alerts, and if there are any in your vicinity, speak them out to you.

The other major advantage to this is that you don't have to take your eyes off the road.  Even SatNavs can be dangerous as you try and translate the image on the SatNav map to the real world you are on.  With this new app, you get told about the traffic alerts while you drive, which has to be the safest way.  The onlydrawback is that there are no interesting screenshots because there's not a lot to show!
