PhantomAlert is a pioneer app in the car traffic events reporting community. Launched in 2010, PhantomAlert was grown a huge database of locations through the US. Drivers could report and see in real time all the important traffic events, from DUI to traffic cameras, accidents and more.

App description

A long time ago for mobile apps, in 2010, we built Phantom Alert, a geolocation app where users could report points of interest on the map while driving and could have seen points of interest reported by others.


There were a lot of challenges back then… first of all, in order to have navigation mode you had to implement it yourself, so we were rotating a bigger map view by code, using the bearing. This was because Google was not having the rotating map feature at that time (the North was always up, but we wanted the travel direction up).

The second biggest challenge was building a SaaS with the development tools for subscriptions provided by Apple and Google, who started enforcing the 30% commission rule.


We’ve built the iOS and Android native mobile apps, where users could have signed up to access an extensive database of points of interest all across the US. Users could have used Phantom Alert for navigation when they traveled, having navigation features and also showing the points of interest reported by the community.

For this project we were involved in Product Development and in Product Launch & Scaling.
