App Review: Scout finds your traffic-free commute

The Good Scout automatically alerts you to bad traffic on your commute. It includes a points-of interest database, a history list, and syncs with a website for saved destinations. The basic app is free.

The Bad You have to pay a fee to download maps in Scout. It does not include routes using public transit or bicycles.

The Bottom Line Scout offers a better feature set, including excellent help for daily commuters, than either Google Maps or Apple Maps, with similarly good route guidance.
