Don't travel without it (4.16.0)

Love the social nature of traveling. I suggest the same issues as lekenna a week ago.

Just Needs One Thing (4.16.0)
1/17/2017 11:16:00 AM 3/5 By BioCat6126
I really like the Waze App and use it often. However, if I could change one major thing about Waze, it would be the privacy setting dealing with location. There are currently only two options for location services: "never" and "always". I think an improvement of this app calls for the addition of a "while using" option. This way I don't feel like I need to turn my location services on and off all the time which is a hassle. Plus, with it running in the background it is constantly draining phone power without any notice to the user. Even last year with phone updates, many users had issues with the location function getting stuck on "always" for Waze (iOS9.3 update in March 2016). I hope there will be an update soon for location service options. I hate to leave a three star review, but I believe this is something that should be addressed.

What happened?? (4.16.0)
1/17/2017 11:08:00 AM 1/5 By terrilee_nc
I used to love Waze, but since the most recent iOS update (10.2), it won't even open - crashes as soon as I tap on it. I've deleted it for the time being until it's fixed.

Good app with annoying qualities (4.16.0)
1/17/2017 11:02:00 AM 4/5 By C_M_W
Love the app. Use it all the time. With that said, there are some VERY annoying things it does: 1. Why does it continually want to automatically set a navigation destination when I launch it? If I want nav, I'll select it. We used to be able to turn this off. Please fix! 2. Please allow us to lock the screen so it will not auto rotate. When it sits flat in the car, it will continually automatically rotate the screen due to car movement. Have to keep picking it up to adjust the screen. 3. The voice prompts seem to be getting chattier when using navigation. The phone doesn't need to read the entire road sign especially when it rivals War and Peace. It also gets crazy when there are multiple turns in quick succession. Need to figure out a balance of properly informing the driver and not interrupting them. Keep up the good work. This app has saved me BIG $$$ in potential speeding tickets.

Waze. The most useful social media/GPS guidance system ever (4.16.0)
1/17/2017 10:17:00 AM 5/5 By Tripwyre79
I cannot give this app enough praise, I use it every day and everywhere I go even when I know precisely where I'm going and have been there 1000 times, it's other functionality is useful to always have up anyway. The social media aspect of it, comes into play when other Wazers, report an accident ahead, or an object on the road that could be potentially dangerous or cause an accident, or a sneaky little hidden police officer that you probably would have never seen otherwise. That brings me into my next favorite functionality, which is by far in the top most useful aspects of this app, it is the extremely accurate and speedometer, with built in updates of exactly what the speed limit is on the road you were traversing at any given time. It can even make a stand or light up and flash red, or both let you know when you were exceeding the speed limit and, this in cooperation with the showing with police officer is hiding, is immensely valuable, and has very likely saved me from several speeding tickets. Thank you Waze

I love this app!!!

Is it getting worse? 🤔 (4.16.0)
1/17/2017 8:33:00 AM 3/5 By CanzCani
This app is bloated, guys. Features keep coming and going - it's definitely not the clean, easy navigator it was in the past. Also, (to echo everyone else) please add "While Using" as an option in Location Services. Just alert users that they won't get to use the plan ahead/traffic alert features if they have it set to "While Using". I have mostly switched to Google Maps because the "Always" access is shady and battery draining. One other note - the app continues to recommend unsafe/near-impossible lefts and straight-throughs. Please add a feature that allows users to "x" a direction they don't like when looking at the route overview. Then, WAZE can recalibrate without the unwanted step ahead of time - vs. this last minute.

Trust Waze! It has never led me astray, always saves me time and it is the only gps I'll use. As a former map lover I appreciate sometimes taking the roundabout route especially if it is quicker!

Good, Essential, but not Great (4.16.0)
1/17/2017 6:51:00 AM 4/5 By Danny Archer
I use this daily to navigate the nightmare commute that is Seattle traffic. It is essential. But it is missing the ability to filter out certain route options that are essential (such as not routing onto HOV/HOT lanes for single occupancy vehicles and routing away from toll roads).

Was good but doesn't work now (4.16.0)
1/17/2017 6:51:00 AM 1/5 By Creed9696
This app used to wrk well then I did an update and all it does now is flip off when I try to use it. I've deleted it and re downloaded it. No luck

Review (4.16.0)
1/17/2017 6:19:00 AM 3/5 By Sabreen1994....JAB
Would be nice if it gave the street names. Good app I would like to see greater route variety. I don't like it defaulting to what it thinks is my favored route and trying to force me to take it constantly instructing me to do U turned to get back on the default route.

Google spoils everything (4.16.0)
1/17/2017 6:15:00 AM 2/5 By ideviphone
It's about time when google showed up on this product and start questionable practices like trying to keep track of my device all the time or wanting access to my fitness data. Ya sure you have an excuse of why you need it vs. it doesn't take a genius to figure out what your true intents are. Atleast don't start with app description by saying 'community based' correct it to 'your information filling our greed'. If you guys at google think you are so Fin smart, try create something that's not there then using all your smarts to deceive people and yet lag behind in features the early 2000s gps devices had. You low lives...

Not super great in the heart of NYC but it's awesome everywhere else!

Helpful (4.16.0)
1/17/2017 5:38:00 AM 4/5 By ANelson05
I usually use the ap when I'm a passenger, and It's helpful. I do wish there were better ways to indicate construction zones and individual lane closures. I haven't found how to do this- so if the feature exists it's not intuitive enough. Overall, Waze has been a very useful ap for me, though I'm not a heavy user.

Excellent! (4.16.0)

New feature : kill battery (4.16.0)
1/16/2017 10:49:00 PM 3/5 By MSkids
I'm a long time waze user but this version is always on even if app is killed and locations services is set to "while using app". So now only way to save my battery on 7plus is set waze to never. Great. Now every drive I have to turn it on and off. What a stupid feature.
