User reviews of Beat the Traffic
Just horrible. It's pretty bad but some of the apps like Waze are getting shitty. First off, you only get two routes unless you buy the pro version. App has no provision to know your location when setting up your route. Secondly, app randomly logs you off and doesnt save your user id and pw Thirdly, route times can be insanely inaccurate. For example, say you are just creating your route. Before you save it, the app gives you the estimate time. As soon as you save the app, say a second or two later, the time is way off, always shorter than the first route. There should be a way to report congestion. Often, you report an incident and the app either gives you an error message or it just saves it, asking you about it the next time you use the app. The weenie developers at BTT can't seem to fix these bugs. Sadly, I still use it bcuz the traffic feed is a bit different than with Google maps. Waze is hit and miss. In my area, I am finding many people not using Waze and using Google map traffic (which has improved a lot) or Apple Maps traffic for those who are using an iPhone. I am also using Inrix as well. Basically, I dont use just one app to get the "traffic picture". btt is affiliate with inrix. both now block me in play store from leaving a review. goes to show you how they shape the popularity of apps.

uses google maps/traffic data. can only save one route. Cant see your route on map after u save it. gives pseudo real time updated info (ymmv) after you save it as a route and it's not very accurate eg. parade route in downtown for planned event, didnt mention it at all. no automatic location feature in determining start route. Estimated times are way off. Real times are much longer. Dl Waze instead. Has good l data this is #useless #uninstalled

Missing a lot of heavily traveled roads..... While major roads are pretty well covered, there are a lot of connectors and "feeder" roads that can easily become very congested, This app lacks coverage of these roads, thus making the app very limited for those of us who use these critical connectors.

Review Crashes often upon startup and crashes each time I attempt to input an accident.

It's OK. It'd be nice if opened to where I was on the map. It's sort of unsafe trying to drive and locate myself. Also, I would like to be able to open the app without it erroring out on every first try. This has happened with at least 3 phones. I use Waze as my primary app and then this as verification BC of this.
