Today Austin Traffic 1.0 was released on the iPhone App Store after being retooled from a web app. I was never very happy with the speed of the web app. As I worked on improving the speed, it became clear that a native application would be much faster and provide other enhancements. Now you can customize the road groups to the ones that you drive on frequently. Currently there are about thirty roads to choose from, but I can easily add more if there are requests. The listings now show the times of the incidents. Most importantly, in my opinion, is that the app downloads a smaller amount of data and only from one network connection which makes it much quicker than a web app.
