The South Dakota 511 mobile application provides real-time access to traffic and traveler information supplied by the South Dakota Department of Transportation (South Dakota DOT). Maps depict current traffic conditions, as well as incident and construction events that can impact traffic on all Interstate, U.S., and State Routes. Alert, and weather information is also available. The map indicates the location of roadside cameras, which allow users to view current traffic conditions. As users move through the highway network, the app can keep track of their location on the map. South Dakota DOT's Twitter feeds are also accessible and provide information impacting traffic across the state's regions.

Overall not too bad but surrounding states have much better apps that are easier to use. This app has no easy way to see a legend at the same time you are looking at the road conditions. So if you don’t happen to know that a pink road with black dotted line means “whatever” you are out of luck. You need to go through several menus to get to actual road info in text format. This app could easily be improved dramatically with just a few tweaks. Our neighbors in Minnesota give a good example of an easy to use 511 app.
SDDOT 511 needs improvements
I have seen WYDOT 511 and they are much easier to use/access.. when I click on road conditions and it takes me to routes.. the list is blank but there are stars and each one of those represent one route (I.e. I-90 from Rapid City to State Line).. you cannot see the name of routes unless you click on the star so it is annoying I have to click on each star til I find the route I want/need to know conditions for. Same for Legend.. it shows the colors but does not show what it means even if I click on it. This needs a lot of improvements. On the Map.. showed 3 different colors (assuming it’s the snowstorm and the severity that’s coming tonight through Sunday) is not labeled or say what the colors mean. I am not impressed.
I like the fact that you don’t have to dial the number to check road conditions. The voiceover reads every details just as you hear on the phone. However I would recommend if you could have notifications on changes like if no travel alerts. Send notifications on the road conditions when winter weather hits the area or when road constructions are going on in any area near our locations. I would like to get the information without opening the app.
