Iowa 511 app reviews

  • Needs some help 2/5

    By gdleprt
    It's a great base, but it hardly works on iPhone X series.
  • Doesn’t reflect Marion Iowa only Cedar Rapids 1/5

    By JizayTech
    I wish it told road conditions and other layer info for Marion IA.
  • Great WHEN it works... 2/5

    By 4Wheeling Drifts
    I use this for Iowa winter driving. Recently the winter driving does not show up at all. One hour commute to work on county highways and now it only works half the time. Last season I never had a problem. Hope they get it fixed.
  • Can’t personalize a trip 2/5

    By Jayrob3648
    The app itself isn’t bad, but when logged in and trying to edit favorites, it says update failed. I can’t store my favorite destinations or get the custom trip report as advertised. Deleted and re downloaded and still have issues.
  • 511 Iowa 5/5

    By shueyban
    I love this app. Just wish it had cameras to low flooding areas. Where the Raccoon and Des Moines river meet. Along the Des Moines river and Raccoon river. Walnut Creek, South Skunk George Flagg Road, Water Works Park, Fluer Drive, Merle Hay Road and Johnston. Airport, etc
  • Cameras 2/5

    By Cystater
    Cameras never seem to work when you actually need them.
  • Very useful app in winter 4/5

    By icijean
    I love this app in winter and also in summer. Works best at home with WiFi to see cam pics.
  • Difficult to find winter driving 1/5

    By critiquent
    Like the other reviewer said, it’s hard to find winter driving. This is the main reason to use the app. Also the pop ups confirming if I’m a driver or not are annoying. Take a note from Waze and use the accelerometer to determine if I’m actually moving or not.
  • Try 1/5

    By Tracy Hoben
    This app is worthless. Used to work great and was very helpful for road reports. Now even re downloading won’t give me the information.
  • From great to garbage in one day 1/5

    By Dogbreath Monsou
    We have a winter storm. My wife needs information on the roads. This app decides that road conditions are no longer a part of what it does. Garbage, pure garbage.
  • Missing road report layer 1/5

    By Plowbouy
    Did an upgrade yesterday. Blizzard today.. No road conditions layer is available?
  • Used to work great 1/5

    By jdblulu
    I got this app for winter driving information. Ever since the last update that is the information I cannot get on the app. Some of the time the option is available in layers but if you click on any other option (like plow information) it disappears and you have to completely reload the app to get it back. The app is useless if you can’t get the information you need when you need it most.
  • Love but what happened to driver test 3/5

    By Ktwirls
    I love this app for road conditions and traffic but what happened to the driver test prep questions??? I used that with my other child but don't see it anymore and need that with my other child , please ad that back !!
  • Winter and roads 1/5

    By Burg town
    This app used to be a very useful app for winter driving in Iowa, but it inconsistently shows winter driving conditions! It was snowing and icy in most of the state yesterday. First time I opened app and hit " winter" conditions it worked, the next time I opened it no "winter" road condition options! Yet the web based version shows snow and ice covered roads. Please fix it!
  • Happy new year 4/5

    By Mark TVWX
    Love the new update with the live stream
  • Works for me! 4/5

    By Maoberb
    Not sure why the other reviewers were having issues. The layers work perfectly on my iPhone
  • This used to be great 2/5

    By Crime case
    I've used the 511 app for a long time. This season (2015/2016 winter) I haven't been able to get road conditions to load even once. Please fix this app. It was once incredibly helpful, and now it's just a waste of space.
  • Winter driving road conditions layer rarely works 2/5

    By smiller50010
    Very frustrating! This app rarely loads the winter weather Road conditions and that is the time I need to have them available the most! Please, please fix this or I will not use it and I will find other ways to get my needed information.
  • Used to work. Want it to work again 3/5

    By SMUrban
    I can not get the weather layer to open for me. It's not even available in the list selection yet when I go to the website I see there are winter driving conditions. I'm in an iPhone 6.
  • Works for what I use it for 5/5

    By 3DMatt
    I use it to check winter road conditions. Simple straight forward with no bugs.
  • Please make Apple Watch app. 4/5

    By Jjjj22223
    An Apple Watch app would be great.
  • Finally useful 5/5

    By Bonerparty111
    Major improvements. Still not much data in town but it's accurate on highways for winter travel. Nicely done.
  • Great app 5/5

    By Indacab
    I have iPhone 5s and this app is working perfectly. The map is great and you can see live images of current road sections that have cameras. Also gives truck info like weights limits and height limits. Great app.
  • Limited 2/5

    By gasman11
    Need full motion video compatible with apple. Also need a larger view screen of camera feeds.
  • Iowa 511 1/5

    By Iowa 511
    This app is useful, but it does not work reliably on iPad. It works better on iPhone. Bugs need to be fixed!
  • Aggravation 1/5

    By MarlaMM
    I read the negative reviews but decided to give it a try. At first it worked fairly well but now it crashes before information is loaded, time after time after time, rendering the app worthless. Unless you are in the mood for some aggravation, don't waste your time with this.
  • App needs to be fixed 1/5

    By KJS53
    This app crashes whenever it is opened. Until it is fixed, it is useless.
  • Crashes! 1/5

    By McCormick77
    Fix your app it crashes all the time!
  • Not reliable info 1/5

    By Drake-Metzgers
    I was excited to see this in a mobile app until I opened it and immediately saw a totally different map than the web site had. Rather than I-80 being totally covered by us the mobile app had normal conditions statewide. I deleted it immediately. The map was kind of clunky too- not a very good image but workable if the info was trustworthy.
  • Ok when it works 2/5

    By chet11
    doesn't work until after 3-4 times of trying to open the app - crashes frequently. Legend button doesn't show up, have to know where it's supposed to be to hit it.
  • Great until I updated. 1/5

    By IA driver
    I dutifully updated the app, now it won't open. I have iPhone 5.1.1. I don't have the space to get a newer version, so I guess I'm out of luck and will have to use a different app.
  • Update made the app unusable 1/5

    By tdomek
    Installed the update just released today on my iPad 1 with OS 5.1.1 and it crashed the app; previous version worked fine. Reported this to the IDOT app feedback email on the state site.
  • Great app! 5/5

    By Blakeintosh
    Easy to use, intuitive and accurate! Nice to see it is a universal app as well. Great work!
  • Traveler 5/5

    By Bobcam69
    Great app for seeing the road conditions and how much snow is on the ground in the area. Comes in handy if you are traveling or making plans to travel.
  • It's ok 2/5

    By Cpyke48
    Good when it stays open. Deleted it after it kept crashing.
  • Not workin 2/5

    By Teri Ehrich
    This app was working great, but now when I go into it, it clicks out and goes back to my home screen.
  • Well Done 5/5

    By Topf2o
    Thanks for this app! Very useful.
  • Not Working 2/5

    By cachappmania
    Poor road conditions today, and this app won't populate the data.
  • Great App 4/5

    By Nutty4gymn
    This is awesome. My hope is that the road conditions is easy to understand.
  • Serious stability problems 1/5

    By Jcarr21
    Great when it works, but that's not very often. App crashes overwhelming majority of the time. Needs a serious bug fix.
  • Needs Udate 1/5

    By QuadCities
    Works fine when it stays open. It has stayed open a couple of times. Most of the time it opens and closes within seconds. At least it was Free. It needs an update to fix the bug.
  • Avoca 5/5

    By Westroads
    Great application! Really like the camera feature.
  • Web-site better 2/5

    By Rubinjane
    Does not tell enough information when "partially or completely" with what??? Ice, snow, flood water?? Too general for some conditions. Needs to be more accurate for it to be of any help. Web better by far.
  • Perfect 5/5

    By Eric Kinman
    Perfect app for driving in Iowa winters.
  • Awesome From Chi! 5/5

    By Radadamsusjj
    I drive from Chicago to Omaha a fair amount. This app has all the information I need for safe winter travels!
  • Great app! 5/5

    By Racinstacie
    From indiana and planning trip during winter storm so maps, alert & mostly cameras were great! More states need an app like this!
  • Alarming!! 5/5

    By buntaro
    I got this to help me keep track of driving conditions and it appears that it may do the job. One warning however- the first night I had it on my phone, (which was unfortunately by my bed), it gave off a VERY loud alert signal, at 4:00 in the morning, that there was a possibility of severe weather about 14 hours later. I think I figured out how to disarm the raucous alert thing, but it certainly blew me right out of bed at 4 a.m..
  • Good app 5/5

    By tim pratt
    Nice and easy to use application.
  • Very nice. 5/5

    By Temptingtam
