Buggy :(

It mostly works, but has some weird bugs. The "I usually leave for work at" field changes time value to some random address, and then the estimated time is all wrong.

Memory leak

I like this app, without any clicking it will provide me with the current commute time.
However, there seems to be a memory leak. It currently uses 1.31 GB of RAM, the third highest RAM consumption on my iMac.
If this could be fixed, I’d give it 5 stars.

Great for anyone who commutes to office daily in traffic

I always try to avoid the traffic and this meant checking google maps in a browser until I found this gem. Now I can see the traffic status right in the menu bar.
