This post will introduce you the android app “Traffline”. You travel daily from your residence to work location and most of time your time get wasted specially in rainy seasons if there is any road congestion or any accident is there on your route and you wish if you was aware of it you might have changed the route. So now it is possible with this very useful app called “Traffline”.
I recently installed it to try it as I daily travel on my bike for almost 16+ km to reach my work place and same while returning and in this rainy season it is very difficult to guess on which route I will face less traffic but with this app I can have some idea about any accident or congestion is there on my daily route and accordingly I can go from different route.
First let’s check what features this app provides to make your ride smoother.
- Provides real time traffic information on map with different indicators for traffic movement e.g. Slow, smooth, moderate, Congestion
- Real time alerts and push notification about accidents, road congestion or any other event
- Very impressive UI design
- Recommends quickest route as your location to destination
- Facility to save favorite routes
- Not officially affiliated but Police of Mumbai, Bangalore using this app to send traffic alerts so you can trust on the accuracy of information provided. (mentioned on their website)
- You too can report incident to help others.
- If you are offline you can call on their helpline for assistence
So what you are thinking about reading the feature list??
I know you might think how they come to know about the real time traffic status and how they are aware of different routes of your area. So by reading information provided on their website they have partnered with different entities who streams real time traffic information to them and also they are having their own team for the same to confirm the incidents with traffic police control room and other authorities.
I am using it before I leave from my work place to check traffic movement on my route as in Pune there is always a problem of traffic jam in rainy season (we are too disciplined drivers) and it really helping me to choose the alternative route. Though there are lots of places in this application which can be improved such as internet speed required, battery usage etc. But still it deserves a try from you.
If you are wanted to know how it works you can visit their website here where they have provided the same information related to traffic.
