For several months, we’ve been working hard to bring you our most exciting version yet…version 4 for iPhone/iPad/ iPod!  

Today, we’re excited to announce the release of INRIX Traffic v4 for iOS.  With nearly 100 Million traffic reports in the palm of your hand, v4 is packed with innovative new features that will help you determine your best route and the best time to leave to avoid traffic.  We’ve also introduced personalized INRIX Arrival Times that tell you how long your trip will take based on real-time traffic conditions.

Now, let’s take a look at some of the new features in version 4.

The first new feature is our “Places” page.  This page allows you, in a single glance to answer four important questions given real time traffic.  i) What’s my fastest route to home/work?  ii) what’s my exact arrival time iii) what’s the exact arrival time of the second fastest route? and iv) what’s the best time for me to leave?

Compare current traffic conditions and travel times with forecasted conditions to determine the best time to leave.

In version 4, you’ll also find that you can also share your INRIX Arrival Time with loved ones or colleagues via text message or email with just two taps.

Easily send your INRIX Arrival Times to any contact with just two taps.

Now let’s take a look at the new, enhanced map that will show you traffic on your routes.  You will notice a few new things on this screen including new icons and an optimized layout.  While the traffic colors tell you about the traffic flow, the incident icons tell you more about the specific traffic impacting events, whether it is a crash, road work, police activity or major event, which is causing the delay.  Simply tap on an icon for more information.  You will also soon notice that every 180 seconds, we will automatically maximize the your personal route to your full phone screen, so now you can drive safer without having to continuously zoom in and out.

View your route on a map and tap on an incident icon for details.

Check it out in the App Store, and remember to rate it again.   With the release of each update our reviews start from scratch, so your rating is very important.

All of you with Android and Windows Phone 7 devices, hang in there.  In the next few months we plan to roll-out all the great features in v4 for iOS for you too.
