Live -- -- memorial weekend is coming up.
The time we -- -- that to hit the beat shall whatever we want -- It's going to be fabulous but.
Obviously we all know that the can be traffic nightmares too.
One way to navigate your way through all of that is to download the apple way -- WA eazy.
We're joined now by Diane -- who is VP of platform and apple and the publishers.
A good to have you here Donna thank you for you heading -- yourself.
I am but I'm sticking around the Bay Area heading thinks there oh no oh how beautiful going to all right so.
And if somebody did somebody wants to know the best time to get on the road the best time to avoid the traffic if you can avoid it -- hole.
How do they use ways who have what's the war what does it.
So -- at the core is a social GPS in real time traffic application you.
And so what we'll do is we'll tell you when there's traffic our hats and coming up -- want try to route you around it.
If we can't do that -- at least tell you how -- you're gonna be stuck in traffic and we do that because we now have seventeen million drivers that are out there on the rose seventeen.
-- seventeen million out.
And all they did they open the application they get their free turn by turn that voice guided navigation suspending it right on the traffic and an exchange anonymously -- -- the -- -- some time -- So and you therefore have this real time information that -- -- -- to anybody else on waste and this covers the entire country.
It doesn't it covers most of the world but primarily primarily -- -- wow that's impressive it's clear is there such -- thing as a best time to get on the road other than like 4 in the morning.
Well so so what we did was we looked at the data we had from last Memorial Day the Friday before we just and -- could potentially if and what we found was that if you can by any means leave before 10 AM we.
You -- good to go or after 6 PM.
With the were as being from two to four that seems to be the peak and then it slowly.
But you're looking at basically a giants -- like this where.
9 AM and 9 PM are about the same so when everything -- We go that I think we have that graphic that we can put up as well which shows that sort of there is the best -- hit the road.
So it did and what are coming back quarterback on the someday or do you leave it to -- Monday morning.
Well you know Augusta Tuesday morning it would be the Monday.
Good morning -- you -- what we found is that it's more dispersed when people come back but everyone's really leaving at the same time and according to AAA we've got that 34 point eight million people that are gonna dive more than fifty miles on on that day so we're looking at a big traffic -- -- their way.
So when he Italy for Big -- -- in -- -- until Saturday you're gonna do sent an idea I'm going to do that varies very.
No wages and has seventeen.
Million uses and growing very very quickly and you just so let's for YouTube openly and that feeds information you get fed information that you -- out your information.
It's like your Garmin your TomTom except it -- -- from your I've primary and you and right and then will guide -- around you'll see the other drivers on the road.
And it's all real time information because the thing as it's gonna change from minute to minute on the -- -- and every other day it's primarily for commuters.
What you wanna do you wanna keep it on and as things change will either update the EPA if you encounter something or try to route -- around it and if we can't do either of those things will at least be able to see -- why -- their traffic.
And if -- up ahead.
It may be reported that there has been an accident you know how long you'll be stuck in traffic and a -- back the other owners easily it doesn't -- it.
You know that is going to be forty minutes the next exit or whatever really -- relaxant is it -- -- It's -- it's absolutely a fairly free app and it's available in the App Store.
