3.0 out of 5 stars A Useful App, But With Some Limitations 1 Jan. 2014
By Andrew McCann TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
The app itself provides information about traffic conditions across the whole of England or in specific regions divided into sections which encompass North/ East/South and West England.

Other parts of the UK are not included within any of the app's own divisions, although to be fair, there is a link to the BBC Travel News website, from the main menu, which includes extremely detailed travel information about all parts of the UK.

Bearing in mind that the BBC Travel News website is freely accessible, that in itself would certainly serve the purposes of most UK travellers, without the requirement to pay for this additional app.

However there are some useful components within the app, which include a map, an accident form, which serves as a template for entering essential information at the time of an accident and a GPS car locator. These, together with the main menu links, would make it a viable purchase for those who are looking for an app that has all these facilities accessible within the same place, but others would probably feel that direct linking with the BBC Travel News website would suffice, without the requirement for an app such as this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Travel UK?? 22 Dec. 2013
By JulieM
Verified Purchase
This app should be named "Travel England", as the whole of the rest of the UK has been left out. For me, this has been a complete waste of money.

What I didn't realise was, it does not cover Scotland, therefore it should be renamed. Traffic in England thank goodness it was free

All this app seems capable of doing is to tell me UK traffic has stopped. Waste of time and space.

I am unable to find out how to use the app, it does give you information about various motor way traffic, but not that impressed, but if I could find out how tom use it it would make all the difference.

2.0 out of 5 stars Road info. 18 May 2014
Verified Purchase
i thought this app would allow me more access to local raods.
It just scrolls down all major raods within a fairly large region without the ability to select certain roads.

2.0 out of 5 stars A disappointment 13 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase
This product promised well, but has an interesting habit of turning off rather too frequently. If this could be fixed, and if a interactive map was introduced it would be very good.
