Android App version 1.30

Version 1.30 of our Android App can now be downloaded from the Google Play Store. In this version we have made a few significant changes, the most obvious one being a complete change to it's appearence. As you know we recently did a complete overhaul of our website and those changes are now reflected in the app. It's now much easier to send and recieve traffic alerts or to search through them.

There are lot of behind the scenes changes as well. We have rewritten much of the code for location detection and location aware features. As a result location detection would now be faster than before and consume less battery. You will notice a significant improvement if you are using the GPS tracking module of the app.

One negative change though is discontinued support for android 2.3 (Gingerbread). The older version (1.21) continues to be available for those are using Gingerbread devices but regretably the version 1.30 is not compatible with Gingerbread.

We expect to add the carpool feature to the next version of the app.
