Commuter

get there faster

  • NEW FEATURES: Customize routes by choosing to avoid highways and tolls. Faster performance, easier interface. Commuter now automatically adds highway and backroad routes. Let Commuter make your daily commute faster and more efficient. Most of us take the same commute to work M-F at roughly the same time each day. The trick is finding the fastest route to work each date. Commuter allows you to define your common commutes, the days of week of each commute, and your estimated departure and return times. You then define the routes you commonly take (Highway, Backroads, etc.). Commuter will send you a live tile update and/or push notification at your departure and return times indicating the fastest route. Commuter also keeps track of the estimated route durations and graphs the average daily commute for each route. Commuter automatically themes and updates the live tile so that you can make a route selection at a glance. The trial version of Commuter is ad-supported and does not support live-tile updates.

Couldn't force it to accept my "backroads" route, it kept making loops. The more "route through here" points I added, the more loops it created.

Great idea!
I love the idea but have a few usability issues with this: 1) Making routes is difficult to impossible. For example try to make a route from Bld 43 to I-90 down 156th. It keeps pushing me onto 148th instead. 2) My live tile doent seem to update on my Focus 3) The commute time is off, there is no way I can travel 20 miles on 167 and 405 North from Kent to Redmond in 30 min. Not even on a great day for traffic have I hit the 30 min mark.

Great concept but when the app deletes the routes that I built a few days ago, that's a deal breaker.

Live tile and push notifications do not work after purchasing. App does not update until I manually refresh.

Looks good. Needs search and one-touch SMS to contact.

Creating custom routes can be buggy, but it works pretty well. The time estimates are usually good to within 5 minutes.

Devs: I recommend you make this free instead of a trial. You will get more beta testers if it's listed as free. Charge for it once it's finished.

Nice proof of concept but far too many bugs to be a WP7 staple. App os constantly hitting an error and then asking to be restarted. Another bug: My street is 143rd but WP7 capitalized the "r" so the address wasn't recognized.

App needs a lot of work. As implementation is poor and really gets in the way, to the point that I could not figure out how to add a new commute. Impossible to add a route.

Genius idea, nice feature set, but calculated times are not even close. On my route, calc daily change is +/- 5 minutes - in reality, it is +/- 60 minutes. Oh, and live tile doesn't update on my Focus.

I couldn't figure out how to make it useful. It showed two routes, then what? Needs a lot of work.

Get a lot of errors on my Focus. Also the directions in the "details" tab only says "turn left" "turn right" but no street names! I think this app has potential but needs more work.

Updating my review from 3 to 4 stars. I discovered the ability to detour your defined route through particular addresses, which is outstanding, albeit not easily discovered. Overall I really like this app. It's brilliant to be able to simply look at the live tile and know which way to take to work - hwy or backroads. Biggest issues to date... I've had several internal errors when defining routes, startup screen doesn't take me where I want to be - to the current commute for that time/day. I'd also like to see real-time traffic. That said... I still like the app and use it daily =)

I really like this app. It's super to be able to simply look at the live tile and know which way to take to work - hwy or backroads. Biggest issues to date... I've had several internal errors when defining routes, I cannot truly define my route - meaning what I consider backroads vs the program, there is no option for multiple stops like dropping the kids at daycare, and the startup screen doesn't take me where I want to be - to the current commute for that time/day. I'd also like to see real-time traffic. That said... I still like the app. Just want more =) great start!

This is perfect for my needs and has worked great so far. Good job on the live tile and push notifications. Has saved me a bunch of time and is well worth the price.

Slow to set up due to performance. One set up, estimated time is surprisingly accurate. Mileage is overstated. Lots of potential, been using it daily so far.

we have an update pending that addresses the perf and usability concerns. Please stay tuned ...

Ad supported in trial mode. You have to buy yo get the tile updates. Great app. I'll be buying it.

You have to two the resolve button next to the start and end addresses to resolve the address. There is ab update pending with a fix to a trial mode issue and some usability improvements.

Very buggy and slow
Difficult to figure out how to use. Lots of bugs - ran into a number of errors. Performance is very slow. Looks promising, though - once they get it actually working and more usable.

Great use of tile updates to keep you informed. Performance is a little slow in the app and setting routes can be frustrating, but still worth it for the glanceable tile updates.

Great idea but still very slow and buggy. Creating a route by using tap-and-hold on the map is nearly impossible. Hope they get this worked out because I'd love an app like this that actually works!
