At Macworld: INRIX Traffic Cuts Down on Downtime

INRIX TRAFFIC! was given the Macworld 2010 Best of Show award.  This isn't your normal navigation app.  It's used to predict your travel time on your normal routes based on real-time and historic data. It lets you know when to leave to reach your destination at your desired time. It uses what the developer calls predictive traffic to show you the quickest way to your destination. It tapps into the largest crowd-sourced traffic network in the world. One neat feature is that you can see how long your ride would be at various times of the day.  You can then decide to leave at one time or wait until a time when your ride would be shorter.  That really cuts down on your downtime. If you're looking for a way to make efficient use of your time, this might be the app for you.
