Made a change to the highway alerts mobile data feed today. You will now see construction alerts and traffic alerts classified as "Medium". These will display on the map as yellow icons.

Let us know how this works for you.

Anyone happen to be running our app on a Gingerbread device? Currently the app requires a minimum of Android 2.2 and I am thinking of bumping that requirement to Android 2.3.

+Todd K Google dropped support for Android 2.2 in October 2013. In order to move our app forward and upgrade to the newest version of Google Maps and Play Services I also needed to make Android 2.3.3 the minium supported version.

I can republish version 2.0.4 of the app, however, your experience going forward with it is going to deteriorate over time. The 2.1.* version of the app fixes numerous bugs and stability issues and is also setting the stage for future enhancements.

v2.0.3 of the app is now live in the Play Store.

The app now displays ferry arrival times for the Anacortes / San Juan Islands schedule as well as the 2-Boat Fauntleroy / Vashon / Southworth schedule when it's active.

Not sure why the SR 520 bridge openings are not displaying in the app. Looking into it.

There are no push notifications in the app yet, however, you can sign up for email / text alerts through our GovDelivery service, http://service.govdelivery.com/service/multi_subscribe.html?code=WADOT

Just pushed v2.0.2 of the app to the Play Store. This is a bugfix release and implements a few new features to our "Social Media" section of the app.

As mentioned in the October 31 post, our Twitter feeds now display linked images in the Tweet itself rather than you having to navigate to a different site (Twitter, Twitpic, etc.) to view the photos. The YouTube feed also sports bigger images and there is a brand new layout for our blog entries.

All the loading and caching of these images is done on demand so as you scroll through the list the images are loaded when they are needed rather than being downloaded all at once. Bottom line is you get the information quicker and it's easier on your bandwidth. #WinterIsComing
