Product Announcement – Indie developer, InchWest of Shrewsbury, Massachusetts has released Chop Commute 1.61, a Mac app that takes the guess work out of daily commute by showing real-time traffic and drive times right on the Mac menu bar as a tray icon. Beat the traffic – save time and money by leaving for work or home at the right time.
No need to manually check the traffic on your phone to figure out the best time to get out of work – Chop commute does the work for you and always shows you the best time right on the OS X menu bar. Chop commute is like Google Now for OS X, only better since it is designed specifically to help you get home quicker. Long commutes or heavy traffic can easily be avoided by being strategic about when you leave to or from work.

- Live traffic information for almost all countries (using traffic data from Google Maps)
- Status icon displaying color coded commute information
- Save time and money by leaving at the right time
The app is useful for daily commuters (whether to work or school), but currently works only on Mac computers (Windows version is in the works).
- OS X 10.10 (El Capitan) or later
- 64-bit processor
- 2.8 MB
Chop Commute 1.61 is $4.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide through the Mac App Store in the Travel category.
