Winter help
It works and gives me the info I need. It’s not too dressed up as an app so if I need to show an older relative they can figure it out too. Thanks!

Does not respect location setting
This app will monitor your location even if you have it set to only use location services while using the app. I discovered this because my battery was draining quickly after installing the app. I have an iPhone 15. The Dynamic Island shows the app’s icon even when not using the app. The developer doesn’t allow you to use the app without location services enabled- which should not be the case. The app doesn’t need to know my location for me to see the cameras in other parts of the Commonwealth that I want to see. Like all other things government, this too is wasteful and not functional the way it should be.

Works good, just needs tweaking.
Ok, first of all, it needs your current location to give you nearby alerts. Duh. Secondly, even if, which I doubt is true, they report your speed, if you are obeying the speed limit, who cares? ( Yeah, I forgot, none of you know how to drive, let alone how to obey silly things like speed limits...) What I feel it does need: send alerts when something, like a road closure, occurs in your vicinity. I had a major road closure just 3 miles away, that I had to look up just to find, after a friend had already told me about it! Kinda pointless if you have to search for things that are important to know about when they are that close. Real-time weather data. It lags, royally, on current roadway conditions. App showed as clear, but, said road closure above was due to a serious bad weather related accident, bringing down power lines across the roadway. Would not have happens on clear pavement the app said was there. Fix these two things, you got yourself a five-star, great, well worth your time to get, app.

Great App!
I have had this app for a couple years. It is not fancy, but it works. I get the information I am looking for before I leave home. I love that I can put my route and the time stamp of when my roads are taken care of or see where the trucks are if they haven’t.

Useless, runs all the time, drains battery
This app is almost completely useless. I ran it and allowed it to use my location all the time, yet it kept notifying me of traffic issues in areas no where near where I was or in the wrong direction from where I was traveling. For example I was traveling south on I-95 from Philadelphia and the app kept giving me traffic slowdown announcements for 95 between Aramingo and Girard. I set the app to only inform me of issues in the direction I was driving, but that apparently doesn’t work. Also the app was notifying me every few minutes. That was annoying because my car has Car Play and every time I got a notification the car switched to playing music from Apple Music instead of the radio. I had to keep switching back. Finally the app runs continuously in the background, even if the option to give notifications is disabled in the driving screen. I watched the app drain 10% of my phone’s battery over the course of a few hours while I was sitting in my living room. Considering the alerts the app gives me are mostly not applicable to where I’m driving and the severe battery drain when the app shouldn’t even be doing anything, I strongly recommend against using this app. You’ll get more reliable use from Waze, Google or Apple Maps.

blows chunks
this app is a waste of space on the internet. I wonder how much the state paid to be part of this app. It wants your location even if your not using the app and is difficult to just look around the app without turning location services on. how about you make an app that can opened while your on the road and send you alerts instead of being invasive and having to have my location even when Im not driving or using the app. secondly what are you doing with info your collecting. please make a simple app that reports traffic and other important travel alerts and stop requiring people to turn on location services when the app is not in use. please people. the technology is there, its pretty simple.

Doesn’t work w/ locations off
App requires user to turn on location to work. Claims it’s for determining if the app is legal in current area but the website works fine on my phone. Also somehow, one time it actually worked without locations turned on so I don’t know what happened there. That one time it actually did work the app was pretty good. A shame that it doesn’t work without locations turned on otherwise it would have gotten a 4 or 5 star.

Needs improvements
Put the “bong” sound before the message so you know to pay attention, not after. This way you know or to listen for an upcoming message. You miss half the message before you realize there is one. The voice speaks too fast. Slow it down so you can pick up details.

It constantly has my location on and gps. I’ve went to settings to turn off and still won’t. I even deleted the app and it still is on! The app itself is a little confusing to use but once you figure it out it’s ok. It does give me good info about the roads during winter but it drains my battery with the constant location/gps

Not great
I’m glad it shows road conditions for winter but a couple things.. Can’t copy and paste an address, you MUST manually type it in which is super annoying. No GPS blip to show you your current location, you’ll have to bounce between your “Maps” app and this app to pinpoint you exact location, also super annoying.

Not Helpful
With all of the new technology that is out there, I’m shocked that this app hasn’t been updated in features in over four years. States like Ohio have road sensors, live cameras everywhere (not just a couple of interchanges) and user-friendly interactions. For such a large state, with major cities and interstate roadways, this app is disappointing.

Very poor app
This app is designed for a local commuter, not a traveler passing through PA. Developer should look at any other 511 app to see how to do it better.

Almost useless
The only working feature that is accurate is the map which shows where the construction is taking place and where the four wheelers are busy creating wrecks. The traffic conditions seem to be fed from Google. Advance audio warning for anything? Forget about it. This app locks up frequently.

Location services?
Why does this app need access to my gps? So my position and speed can be relayed to the police? Then the app can't be used when moving. I'm a passenger in the car and can't get road conditions. What's the purpose? Makes NO sense!! Sounds like politicians had their hands in this one.

It looks like this app was done with a tool that make an app from there already poor/ancient website. They should hire a high school student to redesign them both.

Very “junky” app. Minuscule stream across the top regarding a major storm. Awful to navigate. Maybe hire a college kid to redo this app?
