Pulls updates from LTA traffic news and runs a customisable filter before presenting results.
What's different about SGTS is the inclusion of filters to screen the results to present only updates that you are interested in as well as locate the update on Google Map.
Yes, this is yet another LTA traffic news app (YASGTNA) =)
I wrote this app as a way to learn Android programming. Couldn't find an traffic update app which suited myself hence I wrote one.
There are 5 sets of customisable filters. Each filter works on a string of case insensitive text values separated by commas. Updates which contain any one of the text values in the string will be displayed. (Note that spaces count too)
For example, I can label one filter "Expressways" and include "on KPE,on KJE,on PIE,on AYE,on BKE,on TPE,on SLE,on ECP" as the text string (without the quotes). Updates containing any of the values will be displayed.
I find it useful to use filters like "To Home", "To Work" and include road names which I will take to quickly find the status of these roads.
You can click on the traffic update which will locate the position of the update on Google Map.
It's my first android app so it may be a bit rough but appreciate your constructive feedback! ^_^
Updates in version 1.2
- Click on traffic update to bring up its location on Google Map.
