If you use iOS or Android, you will know that Waze is one of the best navigation apps out on the market, and it is free. The social navigation application will help you get from point A to B but also introduces gamification that enhances the software.
Waze allows its users to contribute data to the mapping service including where police are currently targeting speeders. By reporting this data to the service, you help out fellow travelers and gain higher ranks within the service. The gamification of the platform makes it fun to contribute to the service and in return, builds out a comprehensive navigation solution that is full of extras that sets the bar well above other mapping solutions.
If you are using Windows Phone and want to be included in the beta test, hit up the source link below (note that it is translated, so being able to speak the local dialect, would be ideal) and get in early on the Waze action.
The fact that the team is testing Waze for Windows Phone is another great sign for the platform as the app is highly regarded among iOS and Android users. Waze isn't the only high-profile app to launch a beta program though - earlier today, Microsoft announced an open beta for the official Facebook app for Windows Phone, offering users the chance to be the first to try out its major redesign, along with a wave of new features.
Thanks for the tip Eran!
