Trapster: The Joys Of Texting & Speeding In One Mobile App

Follow Richard

Crowdsourcing has become a popular means of gathering data in the 2.0 world, and now it's come to the driving community via Trapster, a mobile application that helps drivers avoid speed traps. Trapster is available on variety of platforms -- iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and more -- and it's seen about 1 million downloads so far. The way it works is pretty straightforward: when drivers see a speed trap, they post that information to Trapster via their mobile device, thus alerting folks who follow in their wake. Which sounds great, you know, except for the part about driving and fiddling with a cell phone. [TechCrunch]
