Trapster is a Windows Phone app designed to help you avoid speed traps, avoid traffic jams, and generally have a safer time on the road. The app was recently updated to version 1.2 to bring a handful of performance improvements as well as a new map and more language support.

For those not familiar Trapster is a social network app where users post alerts to speed traps, red light and speed cameras as well as accidents and other roadway hazards. These dangers are mapped out to allow you to worry less about getting a ticket and better concentrate on driving.


With the update, Trapster now supports French, German, Portuguese (Brazil), Spanish and Russian. The new mapping feature is referred to as Intelligent Alerting that uses logic that only alerts you to speed traps along your path of travel.

Additional features with the update include the customary performance tweaks and bug fixes. You should also see better battery performance through various optimizations.

Trapster is a free app for your Windows Phone 7.x and 8 device that you can find here in the Windows Phone Store.
