If you remember Google acquired Waze the social navigation app and now, this app receive its first big update. The design has been altered, the user experience simplified, and the battery consumption has apparently been improved.
The Waze 4.0, is already available for iOS in the iTunes App Store. However it’s not yet out for Android, but that will happen at some point in the future.
Waze now requires less taps to access most of its features. The left button reveals the navigation menu and all your frequent and favorite destinations, while the right button gives you quick access to your contacts, letting you easily send your ETA, directions, or your location.
The reporting menu has been redesigned too, and it’s now right on the map in the form of a big orange button. It’s faster than before and features even bolder, color-coded categories.
