Auckland Traffic 2.0 Release

I’m pleased to announce the general availability of Auckland Traffic 2.0 for Windows Phone Mango (7.5): http://windowsphone.com/s?appid=c83af1f4-e589-e011-986b-78e7d1fa76f8

Inclusion of extra cameras did slow down performance of 1.x versions so we’ve optimised the start-up performance for both main map screen and camera screens.

Camera Screen

Cameras that are physically close together will be grouped together so that they can be seen and activated without need to zoom-in:

10 Cameras grouped toghether

Single cameras can now be pinned to start screen and will create a two-sided tile that will display traffic congestion information around that camera. These cameras will be updated every 30 minutes as long as battery saver mode is not active and there’s network connection. Activating this tile will take you to the Camera screen, which is much faster to load then whole map screen:

We’ve also optimized the main live tile image to reduce data consumption, new image is 18~19KB, compared with previous 28KB image, decreasing maximum data consumption from 99 MB/month to 66MB/month.

Each pinned camera image will also consume about 20KB for each update, consuming maximum of 29 MB/month per pinned camera image.

We would love to see your reviews of our app and please drop us any suggestions of what you might want to see in next update of Auckland Traffic.
