User reviews of Trapster
This app has a lot of potential but falls short, the GPS and map can't seem to link up at all and I'm usually 5 - 10 miles further down the road than the app says I am. Then after about a minute it just hangs up and stops reporting speed or location. Phone model Samsung Indulge SCH-R915 (Cricket)

More users in my local than many simular apps. Only complaint is the absense of an auto login feature. It logs me out if the phone rotates (grabbing it to report something< in all fairness, this is an error with my phone>), and by the time I can log back in, I'm too far past the event to do anybody else any good.

Needs more alert options Can only set the distance it alerts you for everything. There are somethings I would like to know about within 2 miles, and most others I'm Ok with 1/2 mile or less. Gets annoying real fast hearing everything with a 2 mile radius. Also, it warns about things on streets your not even traveling on. Will check back when updated.

What a shame.. I used to be crazy about trapster... then i downloaded an update and it was never the same again.. i am still (4 years later!) Unable to recieve baclground notifications of live police within my set radius (like i used to. If this app wants to compete with waze, that is all it has to bring back.. literally all my friends stopped using trapster since the push notifications stopped working (regardless of the settings, it never works!) Such a shame as i used to tell everyone around me about this
