Waze helps you get faster and safely to your destination. When driving from home to work or returnest your holiday, the worst is found in a street full of cars that do not advance, even more if you have kids who ask you every second as needed to reach or have wanted to go to bathroom.
Waze is an application for smartphones that can anticipate the problems you found in your path, for example, returning from a vacation at the beach you find that the street where navigation was closed for repairs or an accident. With Waze advance you to that problem, because before you leave or when you go on your way, you can see in the application map the route you take, this will set the average speed of the route, other users and alerts when there are problems or bottlenecks will be marked on the map. So you can easily modify your path and driving on a clear path.
How It Works
This network combines three concepts using Maps, Alerts and Social Network. The advantage is that information out of those users, that is, as you travel you are helping others to learn the status of traffic. The program accesses your GPS and sends the information to travel, thereby generating the statistics of average speed or flow of traffic and also allows users to be updating the same information, such as new routes, errors on the map notice of police checkpoints, traffic jams or accidents.
Waze also lets you join different groups, they bring together users who similar routes and can monitor the information on your route to work, remember every time you travel, you are helping Waze improve information for other users know the status of the route.
Free and Compatible with all
The application is Free and it works for most smartphones both iPhone (IOS), Android, BlackBerry (BB) and Nokia. I leave the links (link) so they can download the application:
Not all that glitters is gold.
As you can read, Waze is a great application for a travel faster and smoothly, but the weaknesses of the application are that you be sending and receiving travel information on road conditions constantly, this needs a lot of battery and the Internet therefore, I recommend you go charging your phone while traveling and be attentive to the use of your data plan.
