Trapster for Windows Phone Beta release

Trapster was a popular Windows Mobile application that relied on a social network to identify speed traps. The reports would then populate a map for mobile and desktop access. While we don't endorse speeding, we did find Trapster to be a handy app to alert you of speed traps and avoid unwanted tickets.

The developer has been working on a Windows Phone version of Trapster for some time and is now looking for Beta Testers. To add to the incentive of becoming a Trapster Beta Tester, anyone sending in feedback on the app will become eligible to win a $500 gift card.

If interested, you can find the Beta Tester sign up form here and skip on past the break to read the fine print from Trapster on the gift card contest.  Safe driving everyone!


All beta testers who submit their test results and user feedback will be entered into the drawing to win $500. All test results must be submitted by February 11, 2012. We will announce the winner of the drawing on February 13, 2012
