Consistently Inaccurate 1/5
I have used this app and Waze for the last few years here in Houston and have found that Waze provides a generally accurate description of traffic conditions (as well as options to avoid), the Houston TranStar app is more usually inaccurate, generally underestimating the degree of traffic congestion. Frustratingly, as newer versions of the app are rolled out, reliability has gotten worse rather than better. I finally decided to delete this app in favor of Waze. Don’t waste your time with the TranStar app.
Trans star stuck on radar, not loading info on the phone 5/5

An absolute MUST HAVE if you drive in Houston! 5/5
This is a reliable way to get an overview of traffic delays all over Houston. They post incidents almost immediately after they happen (not always the case with other navigation apps), and they inform you which lanes are affected. App makes it easy to check the incident & construction maps before you leave for your destination so you can quickly plan your route. An absolute MUST HAVE APP if you drive in Houston - especially with the upcoming major freeway interchange closures scheduled for 2019. Props to developers and those at TranStar who make sure it continues to work. Thank You!
Pretty good app !!! 4/5
It’s not perfect for everyone but it’s great for people driving into downtown . I wish they could get coverage along Bay Area Blvd & Red Bluff in the Pasadena & Clear lake area . They have a problem with roads flooding . But I think They are doing a good job !
need redesign UI 1/5
Wonder why Apple would allow this amateur app in the App Store. The user interface looks horrible, confusing and amateur. Back to the drawing board👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎
btw, additionally to new UI. It needs to support iPhone X
Very helpful 4/5
The interfaces are convenient and appears very reliable. Comprehensive information regarding flooding and incidents.
Traffic map quit working 2/5
I used this app on the regular basis until a few weeks ago the map quit working. There is no updates and been frustrated that it does not work anymore.
Downloaded today 1/5
Is it posible to get a video of an accident I had last month as proof of evidence?? I have yet to try the app to give a good rating.
Nice has quite a few options 4/5
Not sure if it's intended but you can't enter the map from the home screen by pressing the map? I have to go to the menu. I have to assume a glitch, if not makes it pretty useless as a quick traffic check app. Developer has fixed the issue. Better than having to go to the webpage which was difficult to navigate. Good app.
Freezes up 1/5
This app freezes up too much!!! I downloaded the app to monitor the storm but it keeps freezing.. waste of time!!!!
No live traffic cams.... 1/5
...what's the point? A still frame image?....lame
