If you have BlackBerry Traffic and are signed up with the Beta Zone, the time to update is now. Some improvements have been made and it keeps getting better. If you haven’t joined the BlackBerry Beta Zone, now is a good time to do it. What are you waiting for? It’s free! Traffic has been a good app, and with all the improvements, I find it’s improved and stays on my BlackBerry.
Some of the changes are:
- Universal Search icon now shows “Search BlackBerry Traffic” instead of “Search BB Traffic”. This shortcut allows users to perform a local search directly from the home screen [OS 6 only]
- New gradient icon design for BlackBerry smartphones running OS 6
- Updated user interface for the Route Selection screen
- Minor user interface updates and improvements throughout the application
I love BlackBerry Traffic and have been using it for quite some time. The UI is very appeasing, the directions are clear and concise, alternate routes are easy to find, and it times you to a tee, including showing the speeds you’re driving. I like that I can text someone with different messages. There’s also different vendors that show nearby such as Walgreen’s and Starbucks.
