PhantomALERT Uses Crowd-Sourcing to Alert You of Speed Traps, Cameras and More


BlackBerry App Version 1 - Speed Trp Alert in VA

PhantomALERT is an app available in App World that is a driver/crowd-sourced database of speed traps, red light cameras, speed cameras, school zones, DUI checkpoints, dangerous intersections and more across North America. The app alerts you if it detects that you’re approaching a point of interest and lets you react accordingly. There is a similar app right now on the market called Trapster, which has over 10,000,000 users, and it’s not clear which one provides more accurate readings for your area. In the end, it’s a crowd-sourced initiative so it depends how active your local community is for the respective app.

PhantomALERT is a free download in App World, and costs a subscription of $9.99 monthly, $29.99 for a year, or $99.99 for a lifetime. This type of app has a very specific list of carriers and devices that it supports, so be sure to head over to App World and make sure your device/carrier is on the list.
