SMS-Based Traffic Data
Description
Many drivers don\'t have data plans or smart phones. This leaves the Metro Manila Traffic Navigator by MMDA unusable by many who need it. This app solves that problem by providing that data through SMS.
This application retrieves data from http://mmdatraffic.interaksyon.com and gives it to users who request for data.

Requests are made by using Globe\'s Share-A-Load program and the application will use the information inside the confirmation message to send the data to the proper recipient. Each request costs 5 pesos, but this can be reduced by using promos such as sulitxt or by forging a partnership with telcos directly.

Responses come in this format:
C5
Eastwd-HH
Ortgs-ML

The above means that along C5, Eastwood has heavy traffic in both directions while Ortigas has medium traffic northbound and light traffic southbound.

Also, there isn\'t a website nor a video. The video attached is a Rickroll. The website is my personal home page. The form wouldn\'t let me submit without it.
