This app is useful, but it would be nice if it said if roads were icy or snow covered or both, not just partially covered. Also, I live in a rural area, it'd be really nice to know what visibility is like in the open areas. Sometimes there are plowcam pix, but not always and usually not in my area. Also, please rate the back roads too! Sometimes those are in better condition than highways.

Great and useful app with responsive developers! Recently it started crashing to desktop with Android OS update, but a quick report to the developers got it working again. If you're having the camera view crashing problem, try uninstalling and reinstalling. That fixed mine.

Idk if it's just my phone (Note 8) or what, but this app is useless. I can't add in a layer of winter driving (the entire reason I installed it), it doesn't have it as an option. I try viewing the list of all roads because I want to see highway 75, but it just gives me an error. I uninstalled. Was hoping this would update better than the website that generally has wildly outdated information... I wish the MN 511 was even half as good as the ND 511 :(
