*** Speech is running a bit slow at the moment! We'll have a fix up over the next day. Until then enjoy Sloth mode!

Snarl is the best way to view Australian traffic....and it's free!

Supporting NSW, Victoria and Queensland, Snarl Traffic will provide you with the traffic information you need on the East Coast of Australia.

Featured on the Channel 9 Today Show, Channel 10 news in Sydney, Sydney Morning Herald's top 100 apps and many more Snarl has been completely overhauled in both design and features.

Now supporting real-time traffic updates from Transport for NSW. Snarl is one of a select few applications to have access to this new real-time data. Routes and alerts in NSW have the most accurate and up-to-date travel times and congestion details for NSW.

Some of the new features include:

Driving Mode - When you're ready to go, hit start driving mode to have Snarl speak updates to you! Specify how far you want to see, and Snarl will give you updates for that proximity and continue to keep you updated on your journey! It's like the most useful passenger you could have except it won't help in T2 lanes!

Plan your route - Have Snarl plan and give you traffic updates on the route to your destination. Know what's coming up and how it effects you!

Alerts - Create an account in the Alerts tab to receive traffic alerts pushed to you. Specify areas, suburbs, streets or generic searches you want to know about and when you need to know about them and Snarl will let you know when there are traffic incidents and congestion in your area!

Search - Find locations and view the traffic areas around them.

Dynamic markers - allows viewing of traffic cameras all around your city at a glance while avoiding the clutter. Plan out your travel while having your morning coffee.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Good when it works

Found this to be helpful when it was working, but now it has been frozen for some time . Indicates it is 'waiting'. Tried to delete it and reinstall but it won't let me. Currently useless.

This latest iteration proves what I've always wondered - what does Googlemaps do that this does better? Answer: not only nothing, it shows less. Wasted my three days trying to use this in peak hour traffic - totally utterly useless - does not show any incidences in the suburbs I select, even though the banked up traffic (shown by Google in red) has clearly been affected by an incident upstream.
