While it's not the prettiest app, BlackBerry Traffic could come in handy from time to time. We first saw it pop up in the Beta Zone a few weeks back, and now it has made it's way to BlackBerry App World for download. The app has a simple premise and lets you view traffic for your determined route. It shows your ETA, road closures and more. From App World:
With lots of places to go, and people to see, planning to be where you need to be on time can be a challenge. Thanks to BlackBerry Traffic, you can easily plan to be where you need to be-on time.1 Get your estimated time of arrival (ETA), find out if a road is closed, or decide to take an alternate route, all ahead of time. Heading to a friend's place? Simply grab their address from your BlackBerry contact list, get your ETA, then email or text it along with a preset message to avoid keeping them waiting and wondering when you're going to arrive. Making - and keeping - plans just got a whole lot easier.
The app is still in beta but is available as a free download. So if you're bored (and you can justify using it) head over and download it from the link below.
