Trapster speed trap alerts

The times are tough and everybody’s looking for ways to save money and have funds available just in case. The last thing you want to deal with in these times is a bogus speed ticket. Sometimes you are just going a tad bit over the speed limit (not because you want to break the law but you just don’t realize that you are going a bit fast). To get a ticket and having to pay $100 or something close to that for a silly mistake like that could be annoying. That’s where Trapster for iPad comes into play. It’s a free iPad app that alerts you when you approach speed traps and those annoying cameras. Keep in mind that this app is not for those who want to constantly break the law. But it does work if you make these kinds of small mistakes once in a while.

The app has gotten quite a few mentions on top magazines and websites, and it’s all for a good reason. The app may be free, but it’s not one of those free apps that you won’t want to try more than once. Trapster can legitimately save you some cash. It has over 1 million traps and camera locations in its database. It also has a social aspect to it as users get to rate submitted traps. So you can tell the false alarms from the real traps.

Trapster allows you to communicate with other users in real time (Caravan). The app also shows you users who have recently driven down a road (giving you more confidence about the information you see on your iPad). Trapster supports push notifications as well, so you get your alerts when when the app is not running. Add to that local search and social media integration, and you’ve got one fun social traffic app in your hands.

If you are tired of those bogus or needless traffic tickets and don’t want to invest hundreds of dollars in a dedicated laser detector, Trapster may be your way out.
