One of the main advantages of a cell phone over other electronic communication equipment is its mobility. This means that you can use your phone anywhere, anytime, whether in the car, in the bathroom, on the subway or wherever your imagination allows.
Apart from the more unusual applications, the cell phone can be a great help when traveling by car in big cities. As traffic in SP and other big cities is getting more and more complicated, it’s good to know how the traffic in the city is before leaving the house and choosing the best way to get less traffic.
In a recent article here on the site the subject was an application that showed the traffic in BH on Android, with all BHTrans cameras available for consultation. Now it is the turn of the traffic in the streets and roads of São Paulo to receive an interesting application.
The Eye on the Road app is free and has versions for iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Android. It is much simpler to use than the other option to enter the websites of the traffic operators to check the cameras.
The Eye on the Road shows real-time traffic on the roads of the state of Espírito Santo, Paraná and São Paulo. There are cameras on the following highways, among others:
- Raposo Tavares
In each update are added new cameras, leaving the program even more complete.
It’s the kind of app you put on your smartphone and you use it pretty much every day when you leave home. When it does not help you avoid traffic, in case you are standing in the waiting car it serves to lessen the anxiety of knowing what is happening just ahead where there is a camera.
You can download the iOS version (iPad, iPhone, iPod) or Android, through the Android Market. If you prefer, you can directly search the application name directly on the mobile phone.
The official site of the Eye on the Road app has other information about the app.
