But for those who prefer their information to be more mobile, there’s also the Waze app for your cell phone.
According to the New York Times, “Waze’s app tracks the movement of each of its users to get a sense of traffic, and then directs them to quicker routes based on the data it collects. The company says it has 180,000 users in the Los Angeles area.”
Commuters stuck in traffic can also add notes and photos along the route to warn other users of current conditions.
Seems like an interesting app, but we can’t help but laugh at their dramatic YouTube advertisement!
