Comments and Ratings for Waze social GPS, maps & traffic
Great app annoying limitations (3.8.0)
7/27/2014 8:40:00 PM
3/5 By Derek Rodrigues
Awesome app saves me time and from speed traps.But after the July 14' update it no longer works over 1000 miles but google maps doesn't.Is google trying to force us off the app?Especially since there's tons of ads now and definitely no way to pay to be rid of them.I hope you remove these limitations ASAP
Used to be awesome, now not so much (3.8.0)

This used to be one of my favorite apps, but since the Google buyout, it has gone downhill big time. It used to take me in the quickest, most logical ways with no confusion, but when I used it lately to get me and my sister to a part of town we were both unfamillar with, it changed the route at least 10 times mid-navigation, and took us in an extremely long, out of the way route (once it finally settled on one that is). The ads are also super annoying, and I agree with another user, I would like to have the option to pay for the app and have no ads. It does drain my battery, but it's always done that so I'm not sure if there is anything that can be done about that.
Good app to have (3.8.0)

Very good, especially internationally (3.8.0)

I don't use it much domestically in the US. Lots of options for traffic news in the car here. Where I found it very useful is in large international cities where they have a good user base (Mex City and São Paulo come to mind). Very helpful there.
Keeps getting better (3.8.0)

Just started using it, but I love it already! I plug my phone into a charger when I drive, to avoid draining the battery. Next, I need to get a holder so my phone can be on my dash so I can see the Waze app! Also, for new users, go to the settings and make sure you allow Waze to access your Bluetooth. With my radio on, I can't hear the updates coming from the phone's speaker!

I don't like how the history went away. You couldn't see your past destination. Bring it back and it wil be 5 stars again

Waze 3.8 update wonky (3.8.0)
7/27/2014 5:03:00 PM
2/5 By Fredo328
Love the app but this update made it harder to use. Previous trips are not saved, sure you could save to faves but sometimes I just want to go somewhere I went yesterday but now it's not in the history that previous versions had. Speaking of faves, sometimes it works and saves the favorite, sometimes not. Look forward to next update, maybe some of these issues will be addressed
Still great. I like traveling with Waze (3.8.0)

Updates you immediately if there is an accident or even if there's just a damaged car on the side of the road. Also warns you if there is police reading speeding cars. Awesome app!
Google had to thrash the app (3.8.0)
7/27/2014 2:35:00 PM
2/5 By Drakken_
This app used to be good. Now is just another way Google Inc. Search to control your life. Also this version has too many disconnection problems. I will just not use this until they fix the problems.
I love Waze! (3.8.0)

5/5 By twix701
After using this for 2 months it has saved me more than 6 hours on the road. It used routes I would normally take that google never had with suggestions. If there is an accident it knows and directs me around. After using the app for months I would have gladly paid for this. I love this app and highly recommend it!!
Needs improvement (3.8.0)

3/5 By Apples are rubbish
Used Waze today as a passenger. The app did not say the street names, which I thought was pretty standard with navigation apps. Just "turn left." Also, please give the turning directions a little bit earlier. Unless you already know where you're going, the prompt comes too late.
