Title says it all. Makers need to learn the difference between "features" and "tutorial." "Tutorial" ought to tell one how to use the product! Can't program and save route because it does not tell me how. Otherwise it's loaded with the usual Google maps blunders.

Much room for improvement

A much needed app for the terrible Sydney traffic. Lots of room to improve. Will be good if users can report incident to keep this as accurate as possible. Traveling time estimated based on time of the day will also be useful. Looking forward for the next update.

A good start

Not a bad starting point

Smarter cities will need this sort of app but it's still a baby in its capabilities

If your visiting Sydney grab it as it will give a good feel for the greater metro area but it's not google or apple maps grade !
