Sometimes, your best sources for the most up-to-date traffic and road reports can be other drivers ahead of you – and the free Waze app now available for Windows Phone 8 devices can deliver their advice exactly when you need it.
Using crowd-sourced info, Waze plugs you into a network of drivers in your area who share real-time travel tidbits, including shortcuts and alternate routes. With just a tap, share your own reports about traffic, accidents, road closures and more.
Other perks include automatic re-routing as conditions on the road change, and personalization in that the app learns your frequent destinations, commuting hours and preferred routes. Waze can also notify a person that you’re on your way by sending a live ETA and a link showing you as you drive, and also helps find the cheapest gas station along your route.
Install Waze from the Windows Phone Store – and make Waze the means to a happy journey.
