WOODBURY, N.Y. - Aug. 5, 2014 - PRLog -- News 12 Networks today announced the launch of new stand-alone traffic and weather iPad and iPhone applications that will provide News 12 viewers with quick access to the information they want and need, while on the go.  Designed to complement the News 12 Networks news app, the traffic and weather apps are customizable by region and fully functional with simple navigation and graphics. The iPhone and iPad apps are available for download from the iTunes App store and are free to Optimum customers and other cable subscribers who receive News 12.

“With these apps, users on the go can get the traffic and weather information they need with dazzling speed.  It’s convenient, it’s simple, and it’s accurate. And it comes with the trust of the News 12 brand,” said Patrick Dolan, President of News 12 Networks.

The News 12 Weather App provides the very latest local weather information and updates from the award-winning News 12 meteorological team.  Users can get custom information for their towns as well as live radar images, the latest News 12 video weathercast, a 10 day forecast and more.

The News 12 Traffic App offers up-to-the minute local traffic information and easy-to-read color coded maps.  Users can also verify travel times by entering start and stop locations such as home, work, or even one time destinations.  Additionally, access to hundreds of traffic cameras across the region provides a live look at road conditions and traffic patterns.

Additionally, both apps offer access to the main News 12 Networks app as well as a live stream of the local News 12 Networks channel and the News 12 Traffic and Weather channel.

“With these new apps users can access all of the traffic and weather information they want – anywhere in the Tri-state area -- with just one simple click,” said David Kirschner, General Manager of News 12 Interactive.  “And with the inclusion of the main News 12 app and live streaming of the News 12 Networks and News 12 Traffic and Weather channels, the full experience of what’s happening across the Tri-state area is available in a dynamic and compelling way.”
