This past week’s weather in the north-east and the impending snow that is about to hit Denver, left me wanting for a simple app that would allow me to quickly assess the conditions of the interstates that I might end up travelling. I have always used the interstate conditions pages on Weather.com (http://www.weather.com/activities/driving/interstate/). But what I wanted was the ability to quickly be able to take stock of interstate conditions in my region.
Out of this need was born the Windows Phone 7 app: Interstate Road Conditions.
It allows you to:
- Get road conditions for the entire country or
- Road conditions in one of the 9 regions of the country (North-east, east-central, south-east, north-central, central, south-central, north-west, west-central, south-west).
The maps support pinch to zoom and the application also provides you with direct links to Weather.com pages for the region you are viewing, allowing you to get in-depth and up to date information about road conditions.
You can download the app (its free), using the following direct link to the application: http://social.zune.net/redirect?type=phoneApp&id=1c22d251-4b12-e011-9264-00237de2db9e
