Wish I found this sooner Didn't bother to look for it before and commuting is a pain. Now that I have this I guess I can actually worry less while I drive. Love the traffic data, I can instantly decide which route to take.

The feature is incomplete.. I think the feature this app offers are awesome. It's a tad painful for someone living in condos where network is not available in the underground basement thus can't launch the app. That's not too difficult to work around. The thing that is buggin me the most is that it'll let you know what's slow.. but doesn't tell you how to get around the traffic.. It also doesn't give turn by turn instructions.. It allows you to save route and get popular routes from community but the app doesn't help you to use the route by giving direction instructions.. Also, the map hanged while I tried to record a route I normally take to get around traffic.. This follows with the question about why can't I draft a route manually and instead I have to record it.. I commute from 401 & McCowan to King & Dufferin every day.. There are around 3 main route I can take depends on traffic.. It would be awesome that the app can tell me which route is the best.. I guess it can be accomplished in the future giving the feature.. I have high hope for this app! keep it up.
