Kirkland, Wash. - Traffic-data supplier Inrix, which offers a real-time traffic app for iPhones and Android smartphones, has ported the app to the Windows Phone 7 and BlackBerry OS 6 smartphone platforms.
The Inrix Traffic app is free and ad-free, so in return for getting free traffic information displayed on a smartphone maps, users passively contribute real-time speed information over the air to Inrix, the company said.
The app delivers updated traffic information every minute on more than 1.1 million miles of highways and city streets in North America and Europe, the company said. The information is pulled from more than 400 public and private sources, including traditional road sensors and the company's own crowd-sourced traffic network of more than 10 million vehicles. The app also provides real-time reports of accidents, construction and other events from the same sources used by state departments of transportation.
The app is available for download on Windows Phone 7 from the App Marketplace and on the Blackberry App World Marketplace.
