My favorite driving app used to be putting my phone away and getting out a paper map, but I've recently come around to the idea of my phone helping out my driving.
Before setting off, I now check INRIX Traffic. I don't use it while I'm driving, but it seems to do a decent job of telling me which of New York's highways to choose from. Since there are at least three highways going to any one place, I have a lot of options. Knowing which route has had an accident can save me a ton of time.
But I only got Inrix because it's free. Surely you know a better app for driving, whether it be for traffic or speed traps or figuring out what's on the radio or whatever else. What app is your favorite?
