BlackBerry Traffic Beta Updated to 188.8.131.521
A new update to the BlackBerry Traffic app (184.108.40.2061) has made its way into the App World Test Center. This app was originally only available in the BlackBerry BetaZone program and was later released as a public beta in App World. Not a whole lot has changed, still no 2D/3D navigation or voice navigation.
Here are some of the changes since the last version:
- Users can now select a traffic-based alternate route instead of the default direct route from the menu options. An alternate route is a route that may take less time depending upon current traffic conditions. A direct route is a route that typically takes the least amount of travel time under normal conditions.
- Nearby offers are now visible on a new drive view. Offers may contain promotions and discounts for nearby businesses along your route.
I am glad they added the option to change your route because that was a big issue with me in my neck of the woods. To download the latest version of BlackBerry Traffic head on over to the App World Test Center.
