I feel the need…the need…for (Aha) speed (enhancements)!
Have you ever noticed that sometimes when you launch Aha it can take so long to start that you feel like you are requesting a flyby from the tower, and all you keep hearing is... "That's a negative, Ghost Rider, the pattern is full." (Ok, I'm guessing that is a not the movie quote that comes to mind, but why should Facebook be the only site that gets to drop in random Top Gun quotes for kicks!?!?) But just imagine if the time from app launch to when it finishes its initial load were to be so dramatically improved that you would never even have time to think about asking to buzz the tower (last one, I promise). We've heard from some users that initial load can sometimes feel like an eternity, so I'm delighted to share that we have made updates to our systems that should result in a SIGNIFICANT improvement in that department. Not only have we made some updates to our back-end (changes that you should benefit from right away), but we've also completed some tweaks to the iPhone app itself (already submitted and awaiting approval) so be on the lookout for an App Store update. Something else to be on the lookout for in the coming weeks is the addition of new types of incident information in Traffic. Soon we will be including alerts for traffic events like bridge and road closures as well. So please take a look at the improvements, and don't be shy about letting us know what you think.
