    TrafficDito is a free traffic monitoring website and GPS-enabled iOS application for iPhones launched in the Philippines on October 21, 2011 by the TrafficDito Team, a local startup in the country. It works by sorting through Twitter users’ public tweets and its iPhone app-generated traffic reports describing road conditions along major roads[1][2] in the cities of Makati, Pasig, Caloocan, Taguig, Parañaque, Manila, Mandaluyong, and Quezon City.

    Website[edit]

    Tweets and reports not older than 3 hours are filtered by an algorithm that will determine the expressed sentiment as light, moderate, or heavy traffic. They are then labeled, color-coded and displayed in a stream that can be sorted via search. TrafficDito currently does not support cities outside Metro Manila, nor can it be used in countries outside the Philippines.

    iPhone App[edit]

    The TrafficDito iPhone application[3] has features not available on its browser-based counterpart. Users on the iPhone app can send geo-tagged traffic reports labeled by users as light, moderate, or heavy, alongside any optional text details that may be added. App users may then view the crowdsourced reports and geo-tagged tweets as color-coded dots overlaid on a Google map of Metro Manila.

    In its latest updates,[4] the iPhone app was given additional reporting features such as automatic bearing-detection, Twitter integration, offline mode, and the ability to display geo-tagged reports sourced from tweets[5] by the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority.
