Waze GPS & traffic - Social...

Description

Reviewed July 17, 2014

Waze is a free social traffic and navigation app that uses real-time road reports from drivers nearby to save commuting time and improve your everyday driving. Way more than just another free navigation app, waze's social layer is what sets it apart - giving drivers the power to work together to report and receive the most relevant traffic information available at any given moment. Plus, it actually makes commuting a whole lotta fun!

Waze is as interactive as you want it to be - by simply driving with the app open on your phone, you passively contribute traffic and other road data that waze incorporates to keep the map 100% live, but you can also take a more active role by sharing road reports on accidents, police traps, or any other hazards along the way, helping to give other users in the area a 'heads-up' about what's to come. And the first time you receive a \u201Cspeedtrap ahead\u201D alert that was reported by another wazer, you'll understand the advantages of drivers working together for the common good.

The benefits of social driving continue with localized driving groups, Foursquare, Twitter & Facebook integrations, alongside other cool geo-gaming elements. And because it's user-generated, the more people who use waze, the better (and more addictive!) it gets, so join the over 3 million drivers, worldwide, who’re contributing to the local driving communities in their areas, and hit the road using Waze today!

Please note that continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life
