Comments and Ratings for Waze social GPS, maps & traffic
Great App that could use a little work (0)

I've been using Waze for roughly 1 yr now. I have Road Warrior status (wink). Waze can be fun, but most importantly it serves it's purpose. I use this for traveling as I travel for work. It has helped me tremendously by avoiding traffic. I wish that the app would work along with another product, such as a Garmin gps, because I dislike that I have to use my phone's battery--but if that's the trade off, I'll take it. I wish that Waze would create a way to allow users to make a trip within a trip. I have multiple trips throughout my day and sometimes would like to search for food, businesses, while using the gps. I use it on my ipad and on my Galaxy 5 without any issue. I love this app and recommend it to all of my friends and family! Thanks!

I really do love this app! It would be my all time favorite if it displayed speed limits and had a weather radar overlay. Some days I drive for hours and it is not uncommon to come up on a storm with little or no notice. A Weather Channel partnership perhaps?

I like this app a lot but I'm giving 3 stars bc it's not real user friendly. More so than many others but it's less frustrating than others as well.
Best APP that I have ever used!!! (3.9.1)

This app is the most useful and the most fun to use! I love it! Also, I have never taken the time to review an app but this one is worth taking the time. Too bad I can't give it 6 stars.

This the best app for GPS routes and finding out traffic conditions......it has saved me from getting caught in many traffic jams. I check traffic conditions before I even begin a trip to decide the clearest route.

This is one of the most well written apps that I have used. I would write more, but I'm in a hurry. ☺

Very useful with great traffic updates. I also think the navigation is better than the standard Apple maps.

Not sure what's is going on with this app , but is working horribly , it making me go around the block when I have no traffic in front of me , also. When I put the address and I start navigating. It switched to a different route so I need to turn around , very very annoying and frustrating,
I love this app!!! (0)

It might do it but I can't figure it out. But it would be nice to be able to drop a pin to save frequent locations.

Love this app, but every time I get an app update (sometimes several times a week!) the audio settings reset and the robot voice comes back. Stop it!
Great app! Facebook integration is messed up though (0)

I love Waze. I don't like getting pulled over by the pigs so this is an easy way to have early warning and also help others by warning them. Facebook integration is broken though please fix it

It makes my trips to Dallas every two weeks a lot more bearable. It turns the drive into a game of sorts.

Very useful during my holiday travel. I like the community based approach of alerting each other.
Good for commuting, but will get you lost if you listen to it too closely (3.9.1)

The idea behind waze is great - if drivers provide information about road conditions and hazards, everyone can find better routes, avoid (creating) traffic jams, etc. The user-created maps are often more up-to-date than those in other apps, depending on how many other Wazers are active in your area. I regularly use Waze and find it helpful when I already know how to get where I’m going, say when commuting or traveling on a route I’ve used before, because of the hazard/cop/traffic reporting, which is lacking in other navigation apps.
However, when trying to navigate somewhere I’ve never been before, Waze falls apart. Especially after recent routing updates, it regularly tries to send me circling through neighborhoods and alleys for 10 minutes when there’s a perfectly good main road that can get me where I’m trying to go in 2. Often, it refers to roads using a different name than what’s actually on the signs in the area (especially bad in Houston, where a single road can have multiple numerical labels, one “friendly” official name that nobody uses, and five different local common names).
When you deviate from Waze’s (often ridiculously circuitous) planned route for any reason, it will repeatedly beep and attempt revenge by telling you to make a u-turn through the concrete wall in the middle of the highway, and not stop repeating that instruction until you close Waze, open Siri, and get more sensible, better-enunciated directions to where you’re going.

This app gives you heads up to traffic jams and allow you to get to work on time through alternate routes.
