I’ve mentioned INRIX Traffic! for the iPhone here. It is a useful free app that provides information about traffic conditions using near real-time data from fleet vehicles. I didn’t realize until yesterday, however, that there is now a free INRIX Traffic! for Android app available from the Android Marketplace. Like the iPhone version, it delivers pontentially useful information about current and even near future traffic conditions. As an added bonus, the app runs faster on my more capable (processor-wise) Motorola Droid when compared to my iPhone 3G.
You can listen to an discussion I had with INRIX’s CEO Bryan Mistele recorded last August. We discussed INRIX Traffic! for iPhone and learned how INRIX crowdsources information to provide traffic forecasts.
