    Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) July 01, 2011

    Beat the Traffic®, the leading provider of real-time traffic information for mobile devices, announced today the release of its popular Beat the Traffic® App for the HP TouchPad, HP’s first webOS tablet. As with all of Beat the Traffic’s popular mobile apps, Beat the Traffic® for TouchPad enables commuters to check up-to the-minute live traffic maps in more than 110 cities in the USA and Canada, featuring detailed information on traffic incidents as well as traffic camera snapshots in 33 major metropolitan areas.

    “As one of HP’s key partners for the TouchPad’s launch, our developer team worked closely with HP to port our popular app to the webOS platform,” says Andre Gueziec, president & CEO of Triangle Software LLC, parent company of Beat the Traffic®. “Our commitment is to deliver the richest and most efficient traffic information possible and HP’s webOS technology on the TouchPad helps us achieve this goal.”

    TouchPad will be the first portable device to use Beat the Traffic’s new generation of tablet-optimized HTML5 maps, which provide an uncluttered presentation and leverage some of the tablet’s technologies such as the location capabilities to center the information on the user’s vicinity.

    Beat the Traffic for TouchPad is available free of charge and is ad-supported. Beat the Traffic Plus is available for $4.99 and is free of advertisement. Both versions are available to download on the HP webOS App Catalog in the U.S and Canada.

    The wifi touchpad does not have a GPS radio built in and it would need to be tethered to download the maps and traffic data.

    However, you can look up any location you want to, so if you stop somewhere that has free wifi, you could look ahead toward where your going.

    Edit: BTW, there is a free ad-supported one in the app catalog, or the full paid version.
