What is Waze?

Waze is a social mobile application providing free turn-by-turn navigation based on the live conditions of the road. 100% powered by users, the more you drive, the better it gets.

Waze uses your GPS location and it’s data to automatically update the real-time maps which can let other Waze users about the traffic conditions. This is helpful if there is heavy congestion or a traffic jam and you need to take another way. As a safety feature, its all done automatically for the user and it will not let you type while the care in moving. You can also upload pictures to your location, in case you want to show other Waze users what is causing the traffic problems. .Even if you don’t care about the real-time information, it could be a great turn-by-turn navigation app. If you give it a try let us know what you think of it in the comments.
