Waze user reviews :
I like the app, really useful to get around even if sometimes it insists to take routes which are prone to be more busy than the one you’re already on. On another hand, I can’t believe how stupid, almost impossible, is to send a location to this app from PC or via a message. You either have to scan a QR code with a generic app or send a link which opens the website in a webview. No easy way to input some coordinates from PC, save that location for later and then select it in the app.

I like the social aspects of this app, those reports are invalueable. The problem is in landscape mode the map is covered by huge bars and boxes. The waze suggestion box is full with people being angry about it, but the devs are ignoring them. As a navigation app it’s also not my favorite, I have to keep it on silent, it’s too verbose and it’s route planning interface is hard to use.

Best maps Wonderful application. Wish list: faster updates of other people, easier way of dropping most used pins (like arrange up the side), other ways to earn points, bike & walk modes, vacation mode, more types of pins (lots of people, event, long term construction, name stores, 3d mode, video input, etc), known speed limit.
Small bug Score board having issue not displaying correctly. Thx
Luv it Do as much as I can to make it more efficient and accurate. The better it gets, the better for us. Way to go!
