Trapster for iPhone

Trapster.com has announced that its speed trap notification app is now available on the iPhone. Trapster allows users to post places where they have previously encountered traps, alerting other drivers of where to slow down. Trap reports are also updated instantly as users enter them, keeping map information accurate.

The software uses Trapster's new Virtual Radar technology, which follows a person's position on a map and provides both an animated visual representation of traps and corresponding audio alerts as the user approaches them.

Trapster has also integrated a new private messaging system, allowing users to communicate about the traps they report. A Trusted Groups feature, finally, allows car clubs and other organizations to create private data-sharing communities. Trapster is a free download from the App Store.
