Waze is an original application designed to facilitate travel by car through the information of the users themselves.
Note: Selected best app of the year at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona (MWC) 2013.
Half way between social network and GPS Navigator, Waze thrives on data contributing members of their communities and societies. The goal is to have first hand information on, for example, traffic accidents, problems in the road or any relevant information for which you use the car.
The Waze community has in groups one of its strengths.You can join groups of drivers who tend to make your same journey, connect with your friends when you make a journey together, etc. Waze also has systems of points that give you also a leisure component to the Foursquare style.
Besides knowing the incidences in real-time, Waze also functions as a correct GPS Navigator to find routes to your destination.
Use with caution
As all the tools aimed at use in the car, we recommend caution when it comes to use Waze.
