Waze is a free traffic navigation application that runs on Apple devices as well as devices based on Google's Android mobile operating system and Microsoft's Windows Phone, and has users in approximately 190 countries worldwide. Waze uses GPS information from mobile devices to obtain information about traffic flow on the road to provide better routes to motorists.
A turn-by-turn car navigation app, Waze is like a crowdsourced social network that also gives drivers directions. With Waze, users can alert others of accidents, alternative routes, road closures, police sightings, and other such driving obstacles. Google acquired Waze in 2013, but it still differs from Google Maps, mainly because of the social networking aspect and interface.
Waze is good at finding alternative routes around accidents or traffic jams, especially because it alerts drivers in advance if an accident occurs. waze's police reports are also very beneficial because it helps drivers monitor their speed and avoid getting a ticket.
To save time, Waze tends to take drivers back through residential areas on a circular route. This may be ideal for longer drives, but is not as taxing for shorter trips.
Because waze is smarter, better and more fun than google. A few simple examples: waze can navigate halfway and change the path according to the road conditions ahead; waze can reward you with road information or driving history; waze can build friendships with people on the same road. And so on. Now google maps is very difficult to use, and a few examples: knowing that the highway in traffic but will not tell you the next exit to go local. How many times do you have to tap to exit and how many times do you have to tap to enter the destination input box? Such a simple core function to do so complicated, I really do not know how google think. After navigation, you can not check the setting to change the reference, such as to avoid the toll booths. I feel that after entering the navigation mode can not do anything but drive. If you zoom in the map in navigation mode to see the panorama, he will not automatically retract. And waze will. It is undeniable that with the dumbest way to pick data by driving google has a great advantage in data, but as a navigation software he is still very deficient. waze does not have to use such a large database can do so well, admirable.
