TrafficDito App Makes its Showbiz Debut (LOL) on TV Patrol!
I almost wet my pants when I heard the news. Okay, not really, but finding out that the TrafficDito iPhone app was featured in last Sunday’s broadcast of TV Patrol was pretty cool! It got the rest of the team pretty pumped too. For lack of a better metaphor, we felt like the proud pageant mom seeing her baby’s on-stage debut. *sheds a tear*
Alongside Weatherbug and PDC World Disaster Alerts, TrafficDito was mentioned as one of the apps to download on your smartphone (iPhone, in our case) to prepare for the rainy season. With rain comes flooding, and with flooding comes crippling gridlocks on the road. Of course, that’s where TD comes in — giving you guys that oh-so-important heads up to keep you from ending up like good ol’ Chris Lao.
We managed to find a replay of the episode c/o the ABS-CBN TV Patrol website, or you can check out this super quick vidcap of the original:
A big thanks to the awesome Abe Olandres of Yugatech.com for the mention and Ms. Apples Jalandoni for covering the story. And of course, all the people who’ve helped spread the word about TrafficDito! We’re just happy to help out in any way we can. As of Monday morning, TrafficDito was number 7 on the Top Free Apps list on the App Store! With more people reporting, we only hope that TD becomes even more useful to motorists and commuters out there.
For even just a little while, TD beat out Google Chrome. Awwwyyeaah. LOL.
Again, big high fives to everyone for all the support! Hope you continue to send in your traffic reports, whether on the app, or using the #TrafficDito hashtag on Twitter! Don’t forget, each report still counts for a P5 donation from us to Tulong Dunong through The AralDito Project. :)
