Following the merger between TrafficButter (more popularly known as @TRAFFICBUTTER on twitter since November 2010) and Jonny Waka in January this year, the 2 parties have designed / developed a new and exciting app called the TRAFFIC BUTTER MOBILE APP.
The decision to merge and operate as a single entity known as TRAFFICBUTTER, is motivated by the need to deliver to Nigerian road users, the best road traffic viewing / reporting experience possible using a cross-platform mobile application.
We plan to do this by making significant investments in technology, including tools for more stress free commuting. With our deep expertise in mobile engineering, our mobile App users will benefit from improved personalization and more interactive road traffic viewing / reporting.
In the last 2 months, we have invested in more advanced technology and have designed / developed a new mobile App called the TRAFFIC BUTTER MOBILE APP for use on Android, BlackBerry, and Ios (for ipads and iphones) devices.
TrafficButter Mobile App is a community-driven mobile App. Updates are crowd-sourced by users as well as by the TRAFICBUTTER team in real-time, for everyone to enjoy.
The primary feature is the precise presentation of traffic updates on the homepage and the map landing pages. Other secondary features include Geo Location, Chat, Comments with location stamp for credibility on traffic reporting, and keyword search. Users can choose to follow roads that interest them, and receive notifications when there are new incidents on the roads they follow.
There is also a leader board which shows the top contributors to the app. Most exciting of all, users are rewarded for contributions to the app and to the community. Points are awarded for every contribution.
These points can be exchanged for real-life items. With our partnership with several exciting Local and International brands, we intend to enable our users convert their TRAFFICBUTTER POINTS to exciting goods and services that they can use and enjoy. Someday, users might be able to exchange their TRAFFICBUTTER POINTS for a car of their dreams.
Our goal is simple; to help Nigerian NAVIGATE SMARTER and ease the traffic stress on Nigerians by providing on the go traffic updates through an easy to use mobile App that captures traffic updates, and presents them to our users in a concise manner.
The TrafficButter Mobile App is available for download for Blackberry devices, Android devices, Apple ipads and Iphones. It launches tomorrow Thursday 27th February 2014. It is available in each of the above app stores.
