Looking for an Android UK Traffic App?

June 17th, 2010 Tags: , , , ,

This application (“UK Traffic Checker”) is now available in the Android Market for free. It’s been developed by Dale Lane, who has produced small programs which we’ve covered before, and this one is no exception.  It’s main job is to not just provide you with access to UK road traffic data, but it also allows you to enter details of a regularly performed journey (such as the daily commute to work), and you can then schedule the program to update, so you can see an accurate traffic picture before you set off sitting there ready for you.

This is a nice little application, and worthy of a look at.  Although other application provide traffic data (if only the well used Google Maps), the ability to have the data ready for immediate access seems worth it to me.  If you want to try the application, either search for “UK Traffic Checker” or “Dale Lane” in the Android Market.

  1. Android Market – a follow-up « dale lane Says:

    […] I’ve added some notes on the graph above. “gadgeteer” refers to when the app got a mention in at gadgeteer.org.uk. […]

    Unfortunately it looks like this isn’t available any more ( http://dalelane.co.uk/blog/?p=1675 ). However, I’ve created a similar app called UK Traffic Alerts which people may like (I’ve gotten a good review anyway): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.scs.uktrafficalerts.main.full
