Very user unfriendly
The previous version of this app was so much more user friendly. The new update takes longer to load, you have to zoom in from the entire country to locate where you are, it’s not easy to find incidents, and the color of the traffic speeds is not easy to read. I’ll be using Google Maps more often now since I cannot even get a good traffic report from my own state authority.

Horrible app - previous version at least worked
I feel like they hired a development team that put features in because they could, not because they were needed or even wanted. I don’t get on this app to use as a GPS so it’s pointless to force me to say where I am going. It’s also completely pointless to start out with an overview of the entire country since it only works in Utah and specifically primarily across the Wasatch front. The thin colored lines are very difficult to see between green, yellow and red. They are so thin compared to the previous app version that it’s essentially unusable. The splash screen is completely unneeded. When you start this app you want to get a very quick picture of the Wasatch front and where the issues are. There’s no other reason for using this app so anything else is just a distraction. this app is a classic example of allowing developers to put in features that they themselves wouldn’t use on a day-to-day basis. How this even got past internal testing is beyond me.

What a Piece of Junk
The previous version was OK but this one is terrible. Without knowing how the incidents get placed on the map, I can only say PUT THEM ON. More than half of the time when I come across a crash, it’s not even on the map. I drive I-15 from Ogden to Spanish Fork twice a week and Ogden to Salt Lake every day. I see a lot of crashes and as I said, they aren’t even on the map. That’s if you can even see them on this new interface. Have you tried to play an incident alert. Maybe it’s just a setting on my phone, but it plays at a speed that I can’t even begin to understand(too fast). I don’t see any responses by the developer to these comments, so I have no idea if anyone is even reading them. I read a previous comment that said to make this so a kindergartner could use it. Most people use it while driving and this piece of garbage makes that even more dangerous than ever. Hopefully someone reads this comment.

“App in need of a complete facelift”
This app is outdated and is in need of a transformation. With more drivers and an increase in accidents statewide, having a reliable, consistent, updated information system including cameras is paramount. (App and mobile website collectively). I would argue that some accidents may potentially be avoided with an accurate UDOT system in place; helping to promote more informed citizens who can better plan ahead and make strategic travel plans. Including, forgoing travel. Likewise, it would encourage and positively reinforce more carpooling and “wise” travel. I am sure that is why this app was created in the first place. Please, prioritize and update the system. *Publicly promoting and educating on the updated app/website would be wise too, once you get it up to par. —>In the meantime, this app is of no use or value and the same goes for the online website. The ease of use and use on a mobile device is mutually exclusive.

Useless app
9/9/23. Google maps showed the accident around 3p but this application did not. It kept zooming back to auto dim settings and did not show any detail when I zoomed into the highway. Did not show traffic congestion did not show the accident an alert or delays like the old app. Whoever wrote this app, obviously does not have a car and never leaves the house. The colors of traffic congestion were extremely in accurate, and the lack of any information on why we were sitting in a parking lot on northbound I 15 we’re left to chance When we came upon the accident site with the emergency vehicles, the application showed nothing despite having all the settings turned on. Came across the accident site with multiple emergency vehicles, I destroyed car, tow truck, people on the interstate, and debris, and no mention of any of it on the app. I am going to stick to Google maps.

Aggravating
This app is a waist of time for phone use and I hope it gets better or that they bring back the old version. This current version rarely even opens up past the UDOT screen with the black background. I have deleted the app and reloaded it hoping it was a glitch…it wasn’t. One time I even tried to open the app on my phone, left to snow blow the driveway, came back and the app was still on the UDOT screen with the black background. Unless and Aggravating. A few times I have actually got into the app and it was useful but felt like there were to many options making it glitch. Again Aggravating! After this post I am removing the app from the phone again and will wait for a newer version. Good luck UDOT and please get something working soon because we all want a useful app to see the conditions of the roads for peace of mind and safety!

Please return to previous version (update is useless)
Listen to the reviews. THIS UPDATE IS HORRIFIC! USELESS! The current version is terrible & unusable. I thought this was supposed to help us in traffic, not hinder. The previous version wasn’t perfect, but 10 times better than the update. Impossible to find any good information of any value. We, the people of Utah, are not using this app like Google Maps or Waze. We are using it to see where the traffic delays were. Did you not beta test this with the public? I certainly hope there are not government funds paying for this. If so, I demand a refund. Please return to a version that I we, the people can quickly use. Thanks. If you’re reading this, do not bother downloading it, for is a joke.

Dint waste your time with this one
Don’t bother with this app. The old app was eons ahead of this one. Now you have to register an email with this one but when the app is opened you still have to find where you are on the map. The old app would at least show things like traffic congestion and the accidents as well as snow plows. This one is so far behind that if your in traffic from an accident it still won’t show up on the app and good luck trying to see where the snow plows have been let alone trying to get the app to load up on your phone. Don’t waste your time with this, most likely this app was written by someone who has no clue as to what’s going on. One of UDOT’s engineers at their finest!!

Daniel Summits camera live
Hi there. Just downloaded Click & Fix app. I went to look at the live cameras for Daniel Summits live camera AND Strawberry Reservoir camera live, they are both completely OUT and NOT WORKING AT ALL so they told me to report it through the click & fix app. Hope it gets done soon only bc I travel back and forth from Duchesne to Salt Lake City and it's great being able to look at the 📷 cameras to see what in going to be running into. Appreciate all the hard work you guys do. Please be safe and Happy Holidays 🎄 to all of you....

Great for road conditions
I like each feature of this app. Perhaps my favorite view is the Map view. I switch off the traffic cameras to see the map more clearly. Through the last winter, which was quite snowy, this app provided current and useful information. Easy to use on my iPhone. I always open it before a trip of more than about 20 miles. I also use the WeatherBug app for real time radar images. Using these two apps, I choose the fastest and safest route for my journey

New version is TOO busy
I liked the old app version. This new one is way too busy and confusing. I like the color theme they did to make the app look more modern but they really screwed up by making the app way to “busy” looking. KSL and UDOT, please simplify this app to be like how it was before you updated it! Cut out all the unneeded visual fluff. Most of us use this app while driving. Do you want to cause an accident or prevent one?? Make the app simple as if everyone was in kindergarten, so we can get the info we need within a fraction of a second instead of making the app so complicated that it takes my eye off the road for nearly 30 seconds to get simple info!

Traffic light at 850 East Main, Lehi, Utah
It was so when you came from the north or the south to that light early in the morning you wouldn’t have to sit for a very long and it would change because there’s not a lot of traffic on Main Street. Well now it’s gone back to five minutes. You sit there if you happen to get there just a few minutes after it changes, looked into please and thank you.

Horrible “upgrade”
This new iteration of the UDOT app is horrible! Horrible to navigate. Horrible to follow. Horrible. Horrible. Horrible!!! At least give us a choice of which App we’d like. Take me back to the last one. It admittedly had its quirks, but at least it was navigable. We just came up a construction site around Nephi. All I want to do is find out how long traffic will be backed up. Can’t find that info anywhere. So incredibly frustrating when before the upgrade that info was readily available. I typically don’t leave bad reviews. But I felt compelled to leave one here. Hope you will fix the issues!

Bring old version back
The old version of this app was fantastic and now they’ve updated it and removed or change the way it works and it’s much harder to find information. Looks like it can do more but it can’t present the information in a simple easy to read manner like it used to be able to. my main concerns are we used to be able to pull up a list of emergency alerts, a list of accidents, a list of construction alerts, etc. but now we just have to search the map for all that information and it’s so much harder to find the details

Why change it?
The UDOT App used to be useful, but the latest “upgrade” has made it next to useless. You used to be able to simply open the app and quickly see what the traffic conditions were and what the weather was doing to the roads. Now, you have to stop and put in your destination, pick a route, and regardless of any ACTUAL road conditions/problems, it always seems to say “No delay”, which is really frustrating when you end up sitting on the interstate at a complete stop for 15 minutes plus, and the app STILL tells you that there is “No delay”.

Great App
This is a pretty nice app. I like being able to click on the traffic cameras and actually SEE what the situation looks like. Would be nice if there were a “HELP” function. There are blue camera icons, as well as gray. The blue ones seem to be working, for the most part, and will provide a live (still) shot. The gray ones (currently) do nothing at all but return an error message saying that they’re currently not working. Tried a couple dozen of them.

Totally Non User Friendly
Don’t waste your time on this app! If I could give it 1/2 a star, I would. Here’s why: - Launch app and it takes you to a view of the U.S. You have to manually zoom in to your area to see anything. Every time! - The routes are so thin that you can hardly see the traffic delays. You have to stop and zoom in to the max, and even then the display is micro small. - If you go to the effort of “saving a view” by logging into your UDOT Traffic account, it doesn’t remember it on the primary app display that comes up when you launch the app. - I’ve found it totally useless, unless I stop and pull over to fiddle with it, before I can go anywhere. - I gave feedback to UDOT when they switched from the previous, much superior app, several years ago (and look at all the negative reviews.) It hasn’t improved at all in ease of use.

New versions are supposed to get better!
The new version of the UDOT Traffic app is so much more complicated than the old one! The old app was intuitive! I want a page with a list of alerts and incidents! If I’m traveling from Utah County to St. George I want to see everything currently on I-15! If there is an incident on my route I want to be able to see whether it is on the left or right side so I know which side of the freeway to drive on. The old app made this so easy! I was excited to see a new version of the UDOT Traffic app - until I tried using it!

This app needs a serious update!
This app has been fantastic until the last 8 months or so. It freezes up. Sometimes the cameras won’t update. Sometimes it won’t keep me up to date if the snow plows are out. I have a commute to work, and it would be nice to have the up to date info on current road conditions for winter like I used to have. Where the accidents are, and construction.

New app is not convenient
I do like that the new app lets you see what’s in your vicinity rather quickly, however, being able to quickly see what else is going on in the state is no longer available. Are used to use this function all the time as a travel throughout the state, on a daily basis with my job it was nice to see where the issues were ahead of time and avoid those parts

Some Frustration
The camera on SR248 at Quinns/US40 doesn’t show the actual traffic back up. It’s pointed the wrong way. So it’s not very helpful in planning commute time. With the latest update the Alerts page and Seasonal Roads are all jumbled up and unreadable. Used to work fine. The ability to access the cameras is really useful in term of assessing traffic and weather conditions. I use it a lot and wish cameras were aimed better.

Junk
Previous version worked much better. Old version was easier to navigate. I hate seeing a login screen everytime I open the app. I just want to see current conditions quickly be I head out. And opening the app, if it decides to open (sometimes it won’t) it takes FOREVER on both my iphone and ipad. Both my devices are up to date, so that isn’t the problem or maybe it is and UDOT can’t keep up. Go back to the old app because this is junk!

Useless
I used to use the old app to see the cameras for weather related roads. This “new” version is useless. You can’t see anything, no local cameras or local road conditions or traffic, you have to sign up for an unwanted account on the website, and get texts all day long about incidents hours away from you even after you’ve repeatedly turned off every alert possible on the app & the website. Go back to the old version that was actually helpful.

No Incidents List
This new version is not helpful when trying to quickly figure out what my commute is going to be like. I used to be able to pull up a list of incidents and check for any on roads I take. Now that list is nowhere to be found. There’s too much going on with this new update and the best parts were taken out. I miss the old map and find this too much of a hassle to use anymore.

Terrible app
This app is awful- it starts with a map of the US - why? Why not just Utah? What’s with the big circles with numbers on them? Why no more list of traffic incidents, like the old version? That was a helpful feature. Another helpful feature thats gone is the list of mountain passes and highways- you could search for the routes and then see the conditions. This app - is crap. Go back to the drawing board UDOT, and try again. You took a few steps backwards with this one.

Why did you try to fix what wasn’t broke? Now half the time the app won’t open, usually when you really need to access cameras to see what’s going on. Also it used to open right at your location, now you have to zoom in every time you open it. It worked fine before. Now it’s just garbage.

Meh
The cameras are usually always down or blocked and I feel like they’re delayed by a few minutes because on camera it’ll look all clear but in reality it’s horrible. For the most part the app is good. They used to have the feature where you can see the snow plows out. I think they’ve changed it because I can’t see them ever. The app itself I a bit outdated but factual so overall 3/5.

New App Design is not helpful please revert back to the old design
The original version of the app may have seemed dated but at least I could find the information I was looking for. There is not a quick way to view all Mountain Passes or all incidents like you could with the original app. Those were features I used a lot while traveling. PLEASE REVERT BACK TO THE ORIGINAL APP. It was more user friendly and you could find the information you needed quickly.

The new update makes this app completely unusable. Cannot get past loading screen, and when you do the app ends up freezing anyways. User interface is definitely more complicated than it needs to be.

Traffic all Green, No Alert List, Useless
The 4.1 update doesn’t address my 4.0 concerns. It’s concerning that the developers glossed over the public outrage over 4.0 by ignoring it completely. The useful text list of alerts is gone, like incidents and construction - please bring it back. Everywhere on the map shows green - not accurate, while the old version 3 right now shows red conditions too. Avoid this beta version.

The update is worthless. When selecting a route it does not advise of road closures, e.g. the highway 6 mudslide closure. It requires more work and attention to see details such as slow slow traffic.
