EnLighten


When you're stopped at a red light (In the coverage area), you may be hoping you have time for that desperately-needed sip of coffee, or you may be fretting about how long you're going to be sitting there. Having no idea how long you have can be one of those tiny stresses that make up your day.

EnLighten helps take that stress out of driving. When you stop at a red light, it predicts how long the light will be red. Then, a few seconds before the light changes, EnLighten chimes to tell you the light is about to change.

Recent changes:
Improvements in the detail of Light Status indicators and predictions.
Added the cities of Salt Lake, Provo, and Ogden.
Bug fixes.

Great Potential This app is cool when it works, but it needs some more refinement. My biggest complaint is that any time it makes any noise, the rest of the current Pandora song is at about half volume. If I'm listening to a podcast on Beyond Pod, and enlighten makes any noise, my podcast is paused and I have to hit play again.

Great Work! I saw this on KSL and thought that it would be something really cool to try out. So, I downloaded it, and it has worked GREAT! Thanks EnLighten! :-)

Samsung Galaxy S4 The developers of enlighten like to go from one extreme to the other. When they first came out with the app, they had it so that you had to keep touching the screen to keep it turned on when in use, now they have it so that the app turns itself on when the user is not wanting it on. Do the developers know how to make an app that will come on only when the user wants it on, and turn off only when the user wants to turn it off?

Sort of works Installed it to see if it work in West Valley City, Utah. It recognized about 3 of the 10 red lights I stopped at. Usually it didn't know I was stopped or offer a countdown. I thought it was a great idea, but then thought it really is unnecessary and eats up a ton of battery life because you're always using your gps. Fun trick to show your friends, but wouldn't rely on it and use it on a daily basis. When it does work though, it's pretty cool. UPDATED: Added an additional star for the developer responding to my comment.

Works great and is NOT a distraction When I read about this on KSL, people in the comments section were losing their minds, saying how this app is a huge distraction. No. Maybe on the iPhone since you have to have it run in full screen, but on Android, you just drive. It dings. The light turns green. Unless you require driving in absolute silence, a simple ding won't cause you to crash all over the place. Anyhow, it works great for me. Have Waze running and this...helps you anticipate how long stoplights will be (I suggest running a nav app while charging to keep the screen alive). Love the subtle notification icon. I guess people who think this will cause massive pileups should just avoid downloading it...FUD
