Incompatible with ios11 1/5
Freezes up after checking on incident diamonds.
Crashes everyday 2/5
Under iOS 11, this app crashes every single day. Please maintain the app to work with current iOS.
Great App informative 5/5
I’ve been a professional Chauffeur in LA for 30+ years and this app is an absolute essential tool.
Don’t be intimidated by the 1 star reviews, seems that what they are complaining about is that is not a GPS system. It operates just like all informative apps do, they rely on peer to peer input. It just takes a moment for the person to update the status of an accident, floods etc. if one drives by an incident and they do not report it, that’s not the systems fault. A must have app for what’s going on in the direction that your going to or happen to be on.
It’s Like The Old TOTAL TRAFFIC 5/5
By T. AUGUST
This traffic app will be my #1 traffic app because it’s quick and simple to use when you are on the road. This app is like the old Total Traffic that was my favorite traffic app. It will tell you what the problem is on the road when you see a warnings. You must try, can’t say enough good things about it.
AWFUL 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼 1/5
By Weather #1
I'm not one to write reviews but this app is AWFUL!! It sounded so promising but what it can actually do is minimal! So mad I even wasted my time so please don't waste yours!
Doesn't work anymore. Won't even load anything. Just a white screen
Better off nonexistent 1/5
Horribly inaccurate during normal work hours. I've sat in traffic plenty of times when this app showed that my route was green. Much work is needed.
No List?!?! 1/5
By john from the "lab"
Bring back the list!!!! Who is the genius that decided to take the list out!?
App Owners , Creators FIX THIS APP!! 2/5
To whom ever created and runs this App, do you all Not read reviews? Everyone is telling you that your App has problems and needs immediate attention. I'm not as concerned as the name or number to freeways or highways but as to the numerous times that the info provided on traffic conditions is wrong. I check open and it shows green or light yellow so I chose to take that route but soon as I get on the freeway it's backed up and the app should've indicated Red (deep RED). And please do Not say it must've just happened cuz once in you can tell it's been that way for over 10 minutes or more. So please get it together and fix it!!!!!
New version is terrible 1/5
Bring back the list of freeways and the lists. Having to find things on the maps is a nightmare on a smaller phone. This used to be a great app, but not the current version.
What did you do??? 1/5
Completely useless to me now!!! I'll be first to admit that I am 100% map illiterate and this app is alllll maps!! This new update got rid of freeway lists and now you click on the freeway you want info on or where you want to go. I can't understand your sketchy maps!!! 😩 used to be super helpful and now it just makes me sad 😭
Less than one star! 1/5
I can't even use it anymore! Bring back the freeway list! I don't care to see red or green if I don't know where it's green and where it's red!!! Dumbest update!
BUYER BEWARE!!! 1/5
It gets a ZERO!!!
This App USED TO be very good years ago.
Bring back freeways list!!! 1/5
After removing freeways list as it used to be, I no longer use this app! It used to be very beneficial to me when it had that list.
Almost worthless 1/5
I can't tell you how many times I have ended up sitting in traffic when this app shows all green. The refresh button is almost as worthless as the app and can be upwards of a half hour behind what's actually happening on the road. This does not show traffic in real time. WAZE is far superior. At least it is real time.
Don't download this. You will be sorry if you believe it's reports.
Bring back Roads/freeway list 1/5
Not a big fan of the new update. I actually really dislike it. please bring back the old view where we could see a list view of the roads and freeways. It's much easier to view, especially while navigating in the car. I don't care much for the map view
Used to be my go to app 1/5
What the heck were they thinking taking out the freeway listing? I used to utilize app when I was driving to determine when to leave and which route I would use. Now it's a map and a pain to use while driving... please let me know when you fix this latest update and put it back the way it was so I can reload it.
Coded, shipped, untested? 2/5
It's as if this app was written and tested on a simulator, but never actually used on an iPhone. The new banner ad at the top of the page loads underneath the iOS status line, obscuring everything up there (signal strength, network, time, battery, etc.). The rest of the UI is still ugly, clunky, and just barely gets the job done. The only reason this is still installed on my device is because the information displayed is useful. Keep reducing and removing that information, Sigalert folks, and we'll have a real problem.
As usual, when apps add ads it breaks all kinds of things. The app no longer updates your location when you open it. I drive a lot so having to constantly hit the update location button is a pain. The text is pretty small. The change text size buttons in the settings do absolutely nothing. How was this not actually tested before it was pushed out?
Dropping my review from two to one star. Not only does it not automatically not update your location when you open it, sometimes it is so far off and in a location I've never even been. Additionally, I've had several times where the map won't load because it's too busy trying to load the banner ads.
I REFUSE TO UPDATE AS LONG AS POSSIBLE 2/5
By NoHo California USA
After reviewing all reviews I REFUSE to update this app
NEW is NOT always better
Sounds like the designer doesn't drive ,but just dits in an office
This app is terrible 1/5
Terrible app. Why would you change an app that worked so well. Bring back the freeway number list. No map tapping. Take away adds that cover the page. I will not be buying this app unless you change it back to the user friendly app you used to have!
Bye Bye 1/5
Stuck with this app for years. Just deleted after Feb 16 update when they took away ability to check speeds on specific freeways. Thanks for screwing it up.
BRING BACK THE ROAD LIST 1/5
By Sparkle LuLu
Why on earth would you change an app that works into one that DOES NOT!!! BRING BACK THE ROAD LIST. What you're doing now is unusable.
Terrible Update 1/5
Used for years. Now deleting- app took away list of roads and speeds. I've spoken to many family & friends - this was main feature used. Not happy.
By Liz on the road
Omg. Why why why did this change? It is horrible now. Used to use it a lot. Never again
Need a list view option 1/5
Please put a list view by freeway option back in. It is a pain to follow the freeway on the map rather than scrolling down a list. Not always interested in the area I am in currently.
Of all the stupid ideas to cover the screen with a distracting banner of ads and feature buttons! I pay a subscription to keep the ads off the screen. The mobile app, which I never access from my desktop, was clean and free of aggravating unnecessary junk in the way of the vital information I've depended on for a few years. Take that stuff of the screen. DISPLAY THE MAP ONLY!
Status bar is covered 1/5
Love the new UI refresh but hate that the iOS icon and status header is now covered by this app.
2/16/17 update: no, no, no 1/5
By old guy
Why in the world would Sigalert choose to wipe out the simple functionality of the previous version's interface? Simply mirroring the web site in-app is a step backward.
Please put things back to the way they were. If I want to see/use your desktop interface, I'm going to access it on a desktop computer. The dedicated mobile interface of the previous app version was so much better because—shock of all shocks—I was accessing it from a mobile device.
Great update 4/5
I can read and see the map text yay!
Refresh Button Suggestion 4/5
I use this app everyday and have for years. My one nagging issue is the refresh button.
I wish it was:
- Larger than the other buttons and easier to accurately hit.
- Positioned away from the other buttons so easier to hit.
- or both of the above.
I often will get the overview I want them go to hit refresh and will accidentally hit the relocate button.
Obviously I use this app while driving (held by dash magnet). I need accurate less fuss updating.
They "completely redesigned the interface" yet the buttons are still the same.
Would sacrifice all the new features for a better refresh button arrangement.
The App is Worthless 1/5
This app is terrible it's like buying a clock with one hand. Southern California has received over two weeks of constant rain. A road names Topanga Cyn is approx 35 miles log the portion from the Pacific Coast Hwy to Ventura Blvd. sustained major damage because it goes through the mountains. Several huge boulders literary the size of a house estimated weighing a few thousand tons came down created much damage and had to be exploded to remove. That portion of the road has been closed for about 2 weeks and will not open until maybe next week. The app says it is open. I believed it and when a got a few miles down it was closed. Don't waste your time.
Great Traffic Overview of Bay Area 5/5
Perfect for freeway overviews. I use this to weigh freeway bottle necks against a few of my cheat routes. If it shows orange or red, I go around it...
App no longer works 1/5
Used this app for a long time with no problem. Now the map won't load and it tells me there is a problem connecting to the server and to check your internet connection. What gives. Sent them an email...no response!
Simple awesome 5/5
By Appleweed farms
I was using the website a long time before the app even came out. My wife travels a long distance to work. Using find my friends I am able to quickly check on the status of her drive and text her in real time if she needs to change routes.
Best app since sliced bread 5/5
Not sure why there are negative reviews about this app we are in a traffic jam right now and it is telling us every location that the traffic jam exists and how long the traffic jam stretches this is a must-have app.
Dont expect much 2/5
If you're looking for a very general overview of the traffic picture of the LA basin then this app is all right. If you're expecting real-time traffic updates so that you can navigate around traffic jams and accidents then forget this app use Waze
Good app 5/5
By That's rite
Use this all the time and is a life saver. Wish i could add favorites. That would be awesome
I use this app a lot ... good traffic predictor 5/5
By Stay Puft Marshmallow Man
I use this app all the time and I used it in both Northern and Southern California. It's very accurate and allows me to gauge traffic conditions and make decisions quickly.
I know California freeways like the back of my hand. For me it's easy to read, but other people may find it less so and want to use their GPS/Waze.
I find the Waze map interface to be horrid. Sigalert gives me a complete picture all at once.
Excellent traffic app; routing is unusable and unstable. 2/5
Just downloaded, version 1.2.1, build 130 on 10/01/16. Routing did not work at all for me. Choosing locations by placing cursor is very inaccurate. If ever revised should be able to enter locations by text.
I will use the traffic portion which shows more detail than any other mapping program. Like the refresh button also. You can see the traffic pictures change.
map will not load 1/5
This app stopped loading maps and will no longer update locations I will not be renewing my membership will be removing app from phone WAZE is all you need
Louisville issue 2/5
By Swampy the clean
App was great until 2 days ago. The cameras in Louisville do not load. All show unavailable. Cincinnati works great.
By Nora Albaba
So good. Tells me where traffic is on the freeway.
This app has changed commuting forever! I live in Denver and the commute anywhere
Great for San Diego and LA 5/5
Just moved to DC and loved this on the west coast - works fine and is very accurate; I like to use it alongside google maps. Great app.
Not helpful 2/5
By Michelle C loves Hello Kitty
Doesn't update often enough and doesn't report accurate info.
No, it does not work fine 2/5
SigAlert is consistently wrong. Like many have said before, it will say the road is green, but you'll end up stuck in a jam.
When you live near the 405 5/5
By David Colin22
This App has saved me time and torture by letting me know when not to get on the 405 freeway. How much time? Could be many hours. Not being tortured is self explanatory for most people. If you like torture, this App is not for you because it improves quality of life!
Works fine now 5/5
Please don't be intimidated by all the 1 star reviews. Given that when they were written, the app did not work. But it has been fixed for a while now and is actually quite useful. The traffic status is live and can be updated any time with the touch of a button. It also gives you access to live cameras so you can assess the traffic situation yourself. It is very simple, easy, and convenient to use. I think more people should know about it.
It’s so bad, so inaccurate. The website is even terrible on a desktop. Skip this app. It’s terrible. Total garbage.
