"Useless"

May 12, 2005  |  By riff.raf

 |  Version: Yahoo Local Traffic 1.0.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Maybe I expect more from this then I'm supposed to... I know where road costruction is planned. I can read that in the newspaper... What I expected, and what I don't receive, is any indication of things like, truck rollovers & lane closures, disabled motorists, etc. I have had cellphone conversations with motorists at a dead stop on I-93 for more than 10 minutes, with no indication of any problem via this widget. Whassup? If it can't give me that, Smarttraveler is only one more click away, and they got it.

"Much better -- actually works"

May 06, 2005  |  By davidhmartinez_mac

 |  Version: Yahoo Local Traffic 1.0.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I gave 2 stars to version 1.0, but based on other reviews, I tried v1.0.1. It really works now. It updates itself every 5-10 minutes, it has a scrollbar, and it does what you think it does.

If the developer reads this, I'd like to offer some suggestions for future versions:
- Let us choose a particular highway to monitor instead of all roads within 4-40 miles
- Tie into one of those databases that provides estimated traffic speeds down particular highways

But as it is, this widget is useful.

...from Yahoo Traffic to Yahoo Google. Still calls itself Traffic, but has Google logo and functions like Yahoo Google when launched.

"Greate update! Much better"

1.0.1 has really made the difference for this widget, refreshing works, scrolling works.. it even adds a refresh status along with a 'retry' link if the refresh were to fail.

"1.0.1 is better"

May 05, 2005  |  By spimnyborg

 |  Version: Yahoo Local Traffic 1.0.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Okay, I like it a lot more now.
Simply adding scrolling is the only apparent change.
and, that's enough to make it _much_ better -- I can actually see the content now.
It's too soon for me to see how it's updating (before it didn't).

(perhaps the developer is from a small town with one, maybe two, accidents or construction?)

anyway, now it's a more worthwhile download

"Doesn't update, doesn't scroll"

May 03, 2005  |  By V-Train

 |  Version: Yahoo Local Traffic 1.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This widget is basically useless because it doesn't update. Right now it's 11 PM and it's showing traffic from 5:41 PM.

Also, since there is no scrolling, I can't look through the alerts. If I can't look through all the alerts, what is the point of even having it?

Also, just to add insult to injury, while it's sitting there, basically doing nothing, it's using up 111 MB of RAM!

"Not useful at all."

May 03, 2005  |  By davidhmartinez_mac

 |  Version: Yahoo Local Traffic 1.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
It only shows three alerts, and it doesn't seem to update itself unless I close out the widget and re-add it to my Dashboard. And when I do that, I have to reconfigure it again! Nice try, Yahoo. Keep trying.
