GLOBAL TRAFFIC NETWORK's GLOBAL ALERT NETWORK has released a mobile app for Android and BlackBerry platforms. The service plays audio alerts and information updates on users' mobile phones.
"GLOBAL ALERT NETWORK is truly a 'first-of its kind' application that represents the advancements in how news can reach consumers and how advertisers can reach their target audiences. GAN's highly personalized hands-free audio alerts push incredibly relevant, necessary and potentially life saving information in a way that cuts through to the driver without distracting them," said President SCOTT HUGHES.
Traffic information for the service comes from CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO's TOTAL TRAFFIC NETWORK. Weather comes from ACCUWEATHER, and more information, like AMBER Alerts, sports, and news, is planned for the service.
