Portrait to Landscape

This app is as detailed as you want to make it w/one exception. It doesn’t change from portrait to landscape when you change the angle of your phone. That is a problem. Please correct this feature

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the suggestion. I'll pass this onto the development team.

An absolute MUST HAVE if you drive in Houston!

This is a reliable way to get an overview of traffic delays all over Houston. They post incidents almost immediately after they happen (not always the case with other navigation apps), and they inform you which lanes are affected. App makes it easy to check the incident & construction maps before you leave for your destination so you can quickly plan your route. An absolute MUST HAVE APP if you drive in Houston - especially with the upcoming major freeway interchange closures scheduled for 2019. Props to developers and those at TranStar who make sure it continues to work. Thank You!

Consistently Inaccurate

I have used this app and Waze for the last few years here in Houston and have found that Waze provides a generally accurate description of traffic conditions (as well as options to avoid), the Houston TranStar app is more usually inaccurate, generally underestimating the degree of traffic congestion. Frustratingly, as newer versions of the app are rolled out, reliability has gotten worse rather than better. I finally decided to delete this app in favor of Waze. Don’t waste your time with the TranStar app.
